The Armed Citizen® February 17, 2017

Crime doesn’t pay in Chile—especially when the victim is an American ex-pat who keeps a gun under her pillow. A 61-year-old yoga instructor was alone in her Batuco, Chile, home when four men broke into her residence. Two of the assailants entered her bedroom, hit her on the head with a gun and prepared to tie her up. But the Texas native, a legal concealed-carry holder in Chile, put up a struggle and grabbed her gun, fatally shooting both men who had tried to bind her. Their two accomplices fled before she could exit the bedroom and shoot them. The local prosecutor said the woman will not face any charges because she acted in self-defense. The nature of the attack was such that the authorities were concerned that the woman might be in further danger, so they arranged security for her temporarily.

After the intruder entered a bedroom and armed himself with a bat, the homeowner, acting in self-defense, shot and killed him. Authorities said the homeowner likely will not face charges.
