The Armed Citizen® April 24, 2017

In Indiana, a state conservation officer owes his life to an armed citizen. After receiving a call about a suspicious person, the officer approached a vehicle parked on the roadside. The vehicle’s owner began to resist and fight the officer as he tried to arrest the loiterer. Noticing the disturbance, a nearby resident came to the officer’s aid. She fired one shot, and hit the assailant in the torso. The officer, who suffered assault injuries, and the attacker were taken to the hospital, where the bad guy later died. The woman will not be charged. (The Enquirer, Rising Sun, IN, 2/22/17)

Willie L. Culpepper was seated at a desk in his Los Angeles, Calif., service station when a man walked in, brandished a gun, and announced a stick-up. Culpepper reached into the desk as if for cash, but came up with a cal. 38 revolver. The gunman fell dead with bullets in the mouth and chest. (Los Angeles Examiner, Los Angeles, CA)
