A Florida home invader got a stern education on what the Second Amendment is all about when surveillance footage caught him hightailing it out of a Miami Gardens home, followed by the homeowner, a young mother, with a shotgun in her hands.
The break-in occurred in early March, but the video wasn’t released until Tuesday, with the hope that someone might identify the burglar.

While Mom was inside with her two children, a daughter, 10 and a son, 3, footage revealed a young black male knocking on the front door of the home.

When no one answered, he tried to first shove, then kick the door open.
“All of the sudden I hear some banging noise,” she told ABC Miami affiliate WPLG 10 news. “I thought it was my dreams or something.”
So she checked her security camera and saw a complete stranger trying to force his way into the home.That’s when the mother’s instincts kicked in and she ran to her bedroom to grab her shotgun.
“I will do anything to protect my family,” the woman, who does not want to be identified, told the station.
The moment the intruder gained entry into the home he realized that he had made a horrible mistake — he picked the wrong house to rob. He made am about-face and scurried to his car, a late-model Mercedes-Benz that had been stolen.
“He was running for his life and kept looking back, making sure I wasn’t going to shoot him in the back,” the woman said.
She told the station that her children were the only thing that stopped her from pulling the trigger.
The incident has left her understandably shaken.
“I don’t sleep great at night,” she said. “Any little noise I listen to, I have to constantly look at my camera or look at my window.”
As for the burglar’s stolen getaway car, it was later recovered abandoned in Miami, an indication that he may be looking for a different line of work — one that doesn’t involve angry homeowners wielding shotguns.
The second amendment was one of the topics brought up during Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s first day of questioning by the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday. The Circuit Court judge deftly avoided all the traps thrown at him by Democratic senators.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a strong supporter of gun control legislation, brought up the subject.
