The Armed Citizen® July 11, 2016

Police officers responding to a report of gunshots in Georgia learned that a disabled veteran used his Smith & Wesson M&P to save his life. The man said he was awakened early in the morning when two men, claiming to be police, tried to break into his mobile home. When he checked a video surveillance device, though, the resident had a good idea that they were not police officers. The two armed thugs allegedly fired at the homeowner first, who fired back. No one was injured, but the bullet holes that pock-marked the man’s trailer were visible for the real police to see. “My gun saved my life,” the man told reporters afterward.

Three Virginia Beach, Va., men are in custody after a meeting to negotiate the purchase of a cell phone instead turned into a violent confrontation. The three suspects met with the seller in the parking lot of a local McDonald’s, and when a dispute occurred, they knocked him to the pavement and stole the phone from him. At this point, the victim pulled his gun and fired at the thieves, missing but causing them to flee. All three men were later apprehended by the police and now faced multiple charges.

A 70-year-old New York City resident was on his way home when an assailant grabbed him from behind and threw him down a subway stairwell. The elderly man, though dazed, drew a licensed .38 Spl. revolver as the mugger was lifting his wallet and fired twice, hitting the thug both times. Police later arrested a suspect as he sought treatment for gunshot wounds at a local hospital. (The New York Post, New York, NY)
