The Armed Citizen® December 3, 2013

Two teens began knocking on the back door of a house where a 43-year-old woman was home alone. The woman grabbed her .38 revolver when the teens began to kick in the door. They reportedly entered her kitchen and charged toward her. The resident fired a single shot and one intruder fell to the floor before they both fled through the back door. Later a juvenile showed up at a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm. Both teens were arrested and charged with burglary. (Dayton Daily News, Dayton, OH, 6/26/13)

When a couple in Florida witnessed a group of robbers attempting to break into their home they acted quickly. The wife alerted her husband, who armed himself. The robbers ran, and knowing the local laws the husband simply shot at the ground to alert his neighbors of the fleeing intruders. A neighbor heard the shot, and the 44-year-old woman who happened to be a former professional boxer, tackled one of the men. Police later apprehended the other two suspects miles from the scene, and another two in the woods shortly after. All of the defendants were charged with burglary and theft, according to WESH-TV.
