The Armed Citizen® July 29, 2016

Being confined to a wheelchair doesn’t mean you can’t protect yourself, as a case in Georgia indicates. A disabled Vietnam veteran used a gun to fend off a home intruder after the interloper had forced his way into the veteran’s home, Georgia Bureau of Investigation authorities said. The homeowner shot when the outsider lunged toward him after gaining entry to the residence. The bullet hit the suspect in the chest. The bad guy ran away after being shot, but he collapsed outside the home and was pronounced dead after being taken to a nearby hospital. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta, GA, 5/21/16)

Upon returning home from work, a Hudson Lake, Ind., truck driver encountered a burglar inside his house and held the intruder at gunpoint until the local sheriff’s department arrived to take him away. The authorities say the culprit is a homeless man who broke a window in the home to gain entry, and then stashed guns, clothing and food into a duffel bag before apparently falling asleep inside the victim’s residence.

March 1968
A man entered Gregory Fontana’s store in San Diego, Calif., and drew a gun. Fontana reached under the counter and pulled out a pistol of his own. Tense silence reigned for several seconds. It was broken by the intruder. “I have nothing else to say,” he said. Putting his gun on the counter, he fled. (Evening Tribune, San Diego, CA)
