The Armed Citizen® October 5, 2018

Smash-and-grab robberies are a trend in thievery of late, but one went bad when the crew picked a jewelry store where the owner had a gun. The men busted in armed with pepper spray and hammers, and did a slew of damage in the store, including spraying the owner. Fortunately, the alleged robbers couldn’t get out the door without being buzzed out, which gave the owner time to recover and grab her gun, firing a shot to send the intruders scurrying off through a broken pane of glass—leaving behind the loot they tried to take.

A 68-year-old man woke up early one morning to the sound of a burglar breaking into his home, who had gained entry by using a screwdriver and hammer to pry open a kitchen window. The homeowner grabbed a shotgun and stood at the top of the stairs. When the intruder began to head up the stairs, the homeowner pointed the gun at him and warned, “I will shoot you.” Not taking his chances, the would-be burglar ran back down the stairs and climbed out the way he came in.

Michael Korecki, owner of an Elmira, N.Y., liquor store, didn’t scare easily when three men attempted to rob his store. He picked up a pistol kept nearby and told them, “Get out or I’ll blast you.” The three fled. (Sunday Telegram, Elmira, NY)
