The Armed Citizen® March 30, 2015

Despite having a protective order against him, Brandy Moreno’s ex-boyfriend shattered a glass door and entered her home just before 4 a.m. He attacked Moreno and stabbed her. Moreno’s 11-year-old daughter, Jayda, was home at the time of the incident. When she witnessed the attack, Jayda retrieved a handgun and fired twice. The ex-boyfriend fled the home, but was found just a few blocks away. Both he and Moreno were taken to a local hospital in serious condition. Their current conditions are reportedly unknown. “I think she’s a hero,” Moreno’s neighbor, Carolyn Marsee, said of Jayda’s actions. (The Oklahoman, Oklahoma City, OK, 9/25/14)

A 68-year-old man was minding his own business, taking an afternoon walk through a Philadelphia park on Wednesday when he was menaced by two men in their 20s. The two men approached the gentleman, one wielding a stick and the other brandishing what would later be determined to be a toy gun. Fearing for his safety, the victim pulled out his legally concealed revolver and shot the stick-wielding attacker, causing the other robber to flee the scene on foot. The injured culprit died at the scene. Authorities said the victim acted in self-defense, and was not expected to face charges in the incident. At the time of this posting, the fleeing criminal had not been apprehended. (The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia, PA, 2/5/15)

February 1984
Frederick Glaeser of Baltimore, Md., was in his backyard when a shotgun-wielding neighbor walked up and threatened to kill him. He had minutes before shot and seriously injured a 13-year-old neighborhood boy and his younger sister as they watched him from their doorway. He leveled the gun at Glaeser and pulled the trigger, but the gun misfired. Glaeser ran for his own gun and, after a shotgun blast came through his kitchen window, killed his assailant with a single shot. No charges were filed. Both children were recovering in area hospitals. (The Evening Sun, Baltimore, MD)
