The Armed Citizen® October 1, 2018

A man who lives in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle was awakened at 4 a.m. one day in July (before Mayor Jenny Durkan signed a law ordering firearms to be locked up when not in use) when a burglar broke into the mudroom of his home. The resident grabbed his handgun before investigating the source of the noise. The intruder was trying to get into the main part of the house, so the homeowner fired, shooting him in the stomach. He was later caught when cohorts took him to a hospital for care. (patch.com, Seattle, WA, 7/16/18)

October 1962
The owner of a laundromat in Venice, Calif., Mrs. Mabel Sims, was awakened one morning by the clatter of change in the store. Through a window, she saw two men scooping change from a coin-changing machine. She called the police and then armed herself with a shotgun and a pistol. When the two thieves started to leave the scene, she stopped them and told them to wait for the police. One broke and ran away but the other remained. (The Roberts News, Venice, CA)
