The Armed Citizen® November 3, 2017

Women stick together, especially in defense of a friend. That’s one takeaway from a Nebraska shooting that followed an alleged domestic assault. The victim’s ex-boyfriend had reportedly been engaging in “stalking” behavior before things came to a head in early August. That day, a district attorney said, the former lover showed up at the house and physically attacked his ex, throwing her to the ground and putting his hands around her neck. When she escaped from his clutches, he struck her with a piece of pipe, verbally threatening to kill her. One of the victim’s friends then pulled her gun and told him to stop. When he sneered, “Go ahead and shoot me” and raised the pipe to strike again, the armed citizen fired, hitting him in the abdomen. The man faces a series of charges related to his ex-girlfriend’s broken arm and bruises. (Omaha World-Herald, Omaha, NE, 8/2/17)

November 1959
After his father-in-law was killed by a bandit in his Oakland, Calif., liquor store, Forrest Norman Anderson became the proprietor and bought a cal. .38 pistol for protection. When a gunman entered the store and announced a stickup, Anderson emptied the cash register’s contents into the paper sack and waited until the bandit left the store. As Anderson grabbed for his pistol under the counter, the gunman glanced back, returned to the store door and raised his pistol. Anderson fired six shots and the bandit fell dead without firing a shot. (Oakland Tribune, Oakland, CA)
