Kiewa Mason taught his children about firearm safety and their use from a young age. The children were so well trained that they knew exactly what to do when someone broke into their home.
When two home invaders broke into the family’s Las Vegas home, 14-year-old son Andrew Mason leapt into action. He grabbed his siblings and his .22 rifle. According to local media reports:
“I went upstairs and grabbed my brother and told him to hide in the closet. I grabbed a cell phone off my dad’s dresser, grabbed my rifle and hid in the closet with my brother,” Andrew Mason said.
Kiewa Mason said his family has practiced for this scenario.
“I believe in the right to bear arms, and it’s not like he was foreign to it. We go to the shooting range quite often. We go to the Clark County shooting range quite often. We go to Range 702,” Kiewa Mason said.
Andrew Mason said he came face to face with one of the home invaders.
“I had my gun loaded and ready to shoot, but when he saw me he just took off running,” he said.
No one was harmed during the home invasion. However, the suspects did manage to get away with a small safe kept in the home. The suspects are still at large.
