The Armed Citizen® October 27, 2017

Opportunists didn’t wait long to strike after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in August. While most sought shelter, those with a criminal mindset saw the aftermath of the storm as an invitation to loot businesses or burglarize homes. Thus was the case in Corpus Christi, Texas, when a homeowner shot an intruder in the head after the suspect broke into his home shortly after the Category 4 hurricane made landfall. The alleged burglar was taken to a hospital. (Caller Times, Corpus Christi, TX, 8/26/17)

A 23-year-old man attempted to rob a 25-year-old man during broad daylight hours. Unfortunately for the robber, the would-be victim, a licensed concealed-carry holder, shot the assailant in the left groin. The wounded criminal was taken to the hospital and placed under arrest.

October 1971
Tony Charvat and his family returned from church one Sunday to find a car with its engine running parked in the driveway of their home near Wichita, Kan. Their front door had been forced, so Charvat got a shotgun and made a search. He caught a burglar in one bedroom and held the man for the police. (The Wichita Eagle, Wichita, KS)
