The Armed Citizen® December 24, 2018

Mothers usually protect their children, but the tables were turned in Idaho when an adult daughter saved her mother from an assailant. Law enforcement officers were dispatched after a call came in about a disturbance in the neighborhood. As the police were responding, they were advised there had been a shooting at the house in question. They arrived to find civilians administering first aid to a 39-year-old man, who was shot by a 41-year-old woman. Emergency medical services personnel continued treatment, but to no avail. The armed citizen told officers that she fired because the man was attacking her 70-year-old mother. Witnesses and evidence supported the claim.

After ice and snow knocked out his power, the last thing a Pennsylvania homeowner was expecting was that his door would be bowled in by a boulder. That's exactly what happened when a burglar broke in around 2 a.m., at which point the homeowner, a mere eight feet away, shot him in the leg. The intruder was later taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. (WPXI, Slippery Rock, Pa., 11/19/18)

Having fallen asleep watching television in his Santa Paula, Calif., hoe, Robert Moore was awakened by a pair of housebreakers glowering over him. One man stabbed Moore twice in the abdomen, but the homeowner managed to call for his wife to summon the police and then retrieved a handgun from a bedroom nightstand. When he aw one burglar approaching, blade ready, he fired one shot that dropped the man. His partner had already fled the scene. (The Star Free-Press, Ventura, Calif.)
