The Armed Citizen® July 14, 2017

Late one Sunday night, an intruder kicked in the front door of a home, prompting the woman who lives there to scream for help. Her husband, who was asleep upstairs, awoke from the noise, retrieved a handgun and confronted the trespasser, who was advancing with a piece of wood. Frightened for his life and that of his wife’s, the husband shot and wounded the intruder. The wife called 9-1-1 and the criminal was taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, and charged with burglary, simple assault and criminal mischief. (Lancaster Online, Lancaster, PA, 6/4/17)

Two men, one brandishing a knife, demanded money early one morning from Thomas C. DeBarr, 23, a clerk at a Kalamazoo, Mich., restaurant. DeBarr told them the money was in a back office and led them to the office, where he picked up a shotgun. When he aimed it at the two men, they fled. (The Kalamazoo Gazette, Kalamazoo, MI)
