The Armed Citizen® June 12, 2015

In Baton Rouge, La., a resident shot and killed a man during the daylight break-in of his home in early December. The intruder was shot while he was ransacking one of the bedrooms in a house in the Broadmoor neighborhood, a subdivision where residents don’t take to crime. “This is not really a neighborhood to mess with,” said Pete Dawson, who lives in the area.

Two brazen criminals were arrested after being caught while making a second trip into the Holladay, Utah, house they were burglarizing. Awakened by the sound of the family’s dog barking, the home’s male resident grabbed a firearm and went off to investigate the ruckus. The man then encountered the pair—a 30-year-old male and a 38-year-old female—re-entering the building to get more loot. The homeowner fired one shot, which did not hit either intruder, but did send them both scurrying for the exit just as responding police arrived. Both were arrested and booked into the local jail. The authorities do not expect any charges to be filed against the resident for the defensive use of his gun. (Salt Lake Tribune, Salt Lake City, UT, 4/28/15)

December 1961
A policeman once gave Mrs. Hatsuyo Yasui what turned out to be very good advice indeed. He mentioned that if ever she should have to defend herself from a gunman, to shoot often so as not to give any opportunity for him to fire back, and to shoot low. When a shotgun-wielding 17-year-old entered her husband’s Los Angeles liquor store and demanded money, Mrs. Yasui ran to the rear of the store, took a .32-caliber semi-automatic pistol and came out firing the gun in both hands. Of the six shots fired, the holdup man was hit five times, and was dead an hour later. (Los Angeles Mirror, Los Angeles, CA)
