A teenage mom and real-life Mattie Ross has become a heroine for exercising her right to defend her home and child: "Just days after a widow laid her husband to rest, she's forced to shoot a pair of intruders who showed up to her Blanchard (Oklahoma) home, threatening her and her 3-month-old baby.
One of the alleged burglars was killed in the gunfire.
Now, individuals are calling the Blanchard police, anxious to help the young woman and her baby.
They say an Oklahoma City law firm and a gun rights group have called to give financially.
Many others have stepped up to start funds and even give long-term support for the two.
Sarah McKinley, 18, (pictured) welcomed detectives in her home once again.
This time, it wasn't to collect evidence or to ask her questions about the recent shooting at her house.
Instead, it's to give her bags of gifts for her 3-month-old son."
