The Armed Citizen® October 3, 2016

Marriage is about teamwork, and an Indianapolis couple illustrated that by pairing up to shoot a home invader. All three family members were sleeping early one morning, when sounds of an intrusion awakened them. The husband confronted the bad guy with a shotgun, but the stranger tried to wrest the gun from the husband’s control. The wife, seeing the struggle, grabbed another firearm and told the suspect to back off. He did not comply. Both homeowners ended up firing their guns at some point, fatally wounding the criminal. They cooperated with police and were not charged. (Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis, IN, 5/31/16)

A Portland, Ore., homeowner shot an intruder who turned out to be an ex-NFL player. Upon encountering the suspect, the resident fired on him, wounding him once in the abdomen. When police arrived, they found the wounded man naked in a fountain in the backyard of the residence. The 33-year-old robber’s injuries are not believed to be life threatening. No charges have been filed against the armed citizen for the defensive use of his firearm. (The Seattle Times, Seattle, WA, 6/25/16)

December 1979
When Christie Jones heard a noise inside her Hollywood, Calif., home, she grabbed her .38 Spl. revolver and awoke her husband, Cliff, who went to investigate and indeed did find someone in the kitchen. When Cliff opened the door, the intruder attacked, clubbing him with a pellet pistol and stabbing him in the abdomen. Mrs. Jones fired twice at the suspect but missed, then she slipped the gun to her husband, who shot and killed his assailant. (The Sun, Las Vegas, NV)
