The Armed Citizen® October 10, 2016

A district attorney in Pennsylvania praised a pharmacy owner who shot and killed a robber, calling the shooting a “public service.” Police said an armed man donned a Halloween mask, got out of a vehicle and went into the Bucks County pharmacy. The businessman caught a glimpse of something suspicious on security monitors and saw that the suspect was trying to conceal a shotgun in an umbrella. The pharmacy owner warned the man several times, but the interloper kept coming toward him and jumped a counter. Investigators said the businessman fired nearly a dozen shots, hitting the bad guy several times. The accomplice, who had stayed in the vehicle, was arrested when police arrived.

An armed 37-year-old transient was shot following a confrontation with a homeowner in San Bernardino, Calif. The resident was in his backyard when he noticed an intruder with a large hunting knife in his living room. When the interloper refused to leave, the tenant armed himself with a handgun. The homeless man then advanced upon the armed citizen, prompting him to defend himself. The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

February 1984
Three men drove into Bernard Jordan’s parked vehicle in a Gary, Ind., parking lot. After an argument, the three pulled away but returned moments later. Witnesses saw one of them get out and point a shotgun at Jordan. However, he was able to draw his .45 ACP-chambered pistol and get a shot off first. He then fired at a second man, who was about to attack him with a wrench. Both assailants died, and the shooting was ruled self-defense. (The Post-Tribune, Gary, IN)
