The Armed Citizen® February 6, 2017

Being home alone can leave one vulnerable, but a gun can turn the tables. An Indiana woman, whose spouse was away, was letting her dog out one evening. As she did, a man in a ski mask approached. She told the man to leave, but he didn’t heed her warning. The woman ran inside the house, with the attacker on her heels. He threw the woman against a wall. The woman pushed him away, got up and retreated to a bedroom. The intruder pursued her and climbed on top of her on the bed as she fought against him. She struggled to grab her husband’s gun, kept near the bed, and fired two shots at the assailant. The aggressor fled and the woman escaped serious injury. (Daily Journal, Bargersville, IN, 10/23/16)

A pizza delivery man, 52, was en route to deliver a pizza when two men confronted him as he walked toward a house. One of the suspects placed the victim in a chokehold from behind and stole $82 cash from him as well as a pizza. When the robber released the chokehold, the delivery man drew a handgun and fired five shots at one of the suspect's lower legs, hitting him twice. The injured 19-year-old robber was found limping on a nearby street, where police arrested him. The uninjured accomplice fled in an unknown direction and was still at large. Police recovered a knife at the crime scene. The delivery man was not charged. (Northeast TimesPhiladelphia, PA, 12/20/16)

Forced by an armed robber to kneel on the floor at the rear of his Phoenix, Ariz., pharmacy and then knocked unconscious, Robert Wells recovered enough to crawl to a hidden handgun. Returning to the front of the store, Wells confronted his assailant, fired one shot, and wounded the robber who was soon arrested. (The Gazette, Phoenix, AZ)
