The Armed Citizen® June 6, 2016

In a battle with a hatchet-wielding masked man, an armed citizen saved the day at a 7-Eleven store in Washington state. One Sunday morning, the armed citizen was drinking coffee at a table in the convenience store when a man with a hatchet came in and started swinging at a customer and a store employee. The 60-year-old holder of a concealed-carry permit drew his gun and fired. The initial investigation found no wrongdoing on the part of the armed citizen, according to the King County Sheriff’s Department. (The Seattle Times, Seattle, WA, 3/13/16)

A Logan County, Okla., man returned home just in time to catch two burglars in the act of trying to abscond with some of his property. The two criminals had attached a car dolly to their getaway pickup, and were attempting to steal the homeowner’s ammunition reloading equipment when he arrived and held them at gunpoint. When county deputies arrived, the two suspects were charged with burglary and grand larceny. (kfor.com, Oklahoma City, OK, 1/11/16)
