The Armed Citizen® October 22, 2018

Critics say there is no place for an AR-15 among civilians, but a Hawaiian gun owner might beg to differ. When three bandits—at least one armed—dressed in hooded sweatshirts entered his home and forced one of the residents into a bathroom, the homeowner grabbed his modern sporting rifle and fired a round, nearly hitting one of the burglars. It was enough to put them on the defensive, as they backed out of the house firing four gunshots of their own on the way out. Though they made off with a reported $3,000, neither victim was hurt.

One could say things got a little heated in a Columbia, S.C., kitchen. According to police, an employee of the local China King Restaurant shot a man trying to rob the restaurant at gunpoint. When the police arrived, the burglar was lying on the ground, wearing all black and a covering over his face. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. The China King worker will not be charged, as it was determined the action was made in self-defense. (The State, Columbia, S.C., 9/21/18)
