“My husband made a mistake.”
Those were the hysterical words of the mother of 16-year-old Janae Hairston, who begged her daughter as she dialed 911:
But the Hairston household will never be the same again, and it’s all because of a single bad decision that any gun owner can make…
One Husband And Father’s Terrible Mistake
(And The Awful Error YOU Might Make, Too)
It was almost 4:30 am, just days after Christmas of 2021, in Columbus, Ohio.
Mr. and Mrs. Hairston woke up to the sound of their security alarm going off in their home on Piper Bend Drive.
Mr. Hairston took his gun and, hearing an intruder in the garage of the family’s home, took action.
None of the family would be in the garage at 4:30 in the morning, so it HAD to be a burglar.
Except that it wasn’t.
It was Janae Hairston, the family’s 16-year-old daughter, and Mr. Hairston only figured that out after he had shot her in the chest.
“My husband made a mistake and shot her because he thought she was an intruder,” Mrs. Hairston shrieked to the 911 operator. “She was in our garage and my husband just didn’t know what was going on. Oh, my God.”
The parents can be heard on 911 arguing over just why their daughter was in the garage at that hour.
But none of that matters, because Janae Hairston is dead, and her foamily will never be whole again.
Now, I know what you’re thinking:
You’re thinking, “I wouldn’t make that mistake. I would make sure it wasn’t my child before I fired.”
And just about every gun owner reading this is thinking that same thing (because I am, too).
But the decision to shoot, or not too shoot, is more complicated than you think — so complicated, in fact, that only 1 in 5 gun owners actually pass this simple shoot-or-don’t quiz online.
How do you think YOU would do?
Take the quiz and find out for yourself… because NONE of us wants to go through what the Hairston family did.
