The Armed Citizen® Dec. 21, 2015

The owner of a clothing store in Milwaukee used a semi-automatic rifle to fend off three armed intruders. In a brazen robbery attempt, a van smashed into the security doors. Three men jumped out of the vehicle and tried to conduct the heist. The business owner fired his rifle at the men, hitting one and causing all three to flee. Police later arrested one suspect at a hospital. “It was a lot of guys out there. So I believe if they would’ve gotten through the door, I would’ve been dead, so that’s the reason I reached for my gun,” the man told the media. (WISN, Milwaukee, WI, 7/27/15)

One man is dead after a bold daylight home invasion was stopped by an armed would-be victim. Two men burst into a Fort Worth, Texas, apartment and demanded that they be given “everything.” Six people were inside the residence at the time, including a 1-month-old baby. One of the residents was able to produce a firearm and shoot one of the intruders in the chest and shoulder. The thief was dead by the time the police arrived at the scene, and the shooter is cooperating with the ensuing investigation. (Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Fort Worth, TX, 8/26/15)

August 1981
An unidentified Rawlins, Wyo., woman was awakened about 4 a.m. by noises at the front door of her home. Thinking it might be her husband, she shouted out his name but got no response. When she approached the door armed with a shotgun, a man who had been trying to jimmy the door open with a screwdriver quickly fled. (The Daily Times, Rawlins, WY)
