Let’s hear it for the homeschooled! This 11-year old kid saved the day when his home was burglarized—for the second time.

The boy and his family live in rural Talladega, Alabama. Needless to say, their home is tucked away in the woods. A criminal, having successfully broken in and robbed the place before, decided to try his luck a second time.

He had no idea that Chris “Homeschool” Gaither was home. The young man happened to be downstairs when he heard noise upstairs. The noise he heard was the thug rummaging around and packing up a hamper of loot.


Chris, not knowing what to expect, but having been trained in firearms and self-defense, grabbed his dad’s nine-millimeter and put his game-face on. Parents, everywhere, we know your pulse has increased reading this and rightly so. It is horrifying to think of your child having to deal with such a situation, but we pray we have all trained our children to be as brave as Chris.

The thug decided to make his way downstairs, and it was there he encountered the 11-year old homeschooled Chris.

“When he was coming down the stairs, that’s when he told me he was going to kill me, f-you and all that,” Chris told local station WVTM.

“When I pulled the gun, I guess he didn’t think it was a real gun because he kept on walking.”

That is a brazen robber. That is a man who had no good intent, and that was a situation that would have ended very differently had Chris Gaither not been armed and trained how to protect his life. His parents deserve accolades.

“I shot through the hamper he was carrying.”

Good boy, Chris.


It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby,” he went on.

The thug got away and we will hope that law enforcement is tracking him down. He had a gunshot wound to the leg, and should not be too difficult to find if he went to a hospital. In the meantime, we will assume the jerk learned his lesson and won’t be planning on messing with the Gaither family anytime soon…they have Chris after all.
