Palin: ‘I’m All in Favor of Girls with Guns’

On New Year’s Eve, 18-year-old Sarah McKinley shot and killed 24-year-old Justin Martin, who was trying to break into her Oklahoma home. Before McKinley confronted the crook, she called 911 and asked the dispatcher, “Is it okay to shoot him if he comes in this door?”

“I can’t tell you that you can do that, but you do what you have to do to protect your baby,” the dispatcher replied.

When Martin kicked in the door, McKinley fired. Police later said the shooting was justified.

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin agrees. In an email to NRO, Palin writes, “I love that young woman. I’m all in favor of girls with guns who know their purpose. She fulfilled a purpose of the Second Amendment. I’d advise my own daughters to do the same. This mom protected an innocent life. Kudos to the 911 dispatcher, too.”
