The Armed Citizen® September 26, 2016

Florida prosecutors have ruled that a woman was within her rights to shoot and kill her estranged husband when he was physically assaulting their son. During a birthday party for the boy, the teen and his former step-father got into a dispute outside near the grill. People inside the house heard a loud thump and the boy’s mother went outside to see what was going on. Official reports say the woman saw the two brawling. When she tried to intervene, her estranged husband grabbed her and threw her to the ground. He also verbally threatened to kill the boy. The mother got off the ground and went inside to get her handgun. She fired two shots, and the man later died at the hospital. (Ocala.com, Ocala, FL, 5/26/16)

Two deer hunters taking target practice about six miles from the Montana State Prison recently apprehended three escaped convicts who had eluded a massive manhunt for two days. Ron Collins, a former guard at the prison, and Graham Blacklock spotted the three escapees hiding in sagebrush, and held them at gunpoint until the authorities could arrive.
