The Armed Citizen® April 6, 2018

Politicians in Chicago might have a noted antipathy toward guns, but one city resident is alive today because he stood by his Second Amendment-protected right staunchly enough to get a carry permit. A 58-year-old man was accosted by an armed thug on the street one day. The bad guy allegedly pulled a gun and demanded his would-be victim’s valuables. Instead, his quarry drew his lawfully carried handgun and shot his assailant. The 23-year-old robber later died. Police found the gun the dead man apparently used at the crime scene.

After exchanging messages online, a 39-year-old man met up with another man to buy an iPhone X. When the two met in a parking lot to close the deal, the seller put a gun to the buyer’s side and snatched the payment money. Luckily, the would-be victim, who has a permit to carry, pulled out his own gun and shot the attacker in self-defense. The armed thug fled the scene, but was later found at a local hospital. The criminal was charged with first-degree aggravated robbery. (Pioneer Press, St. Paul, MN, 3/23/18)

April 1963
Awakened in his Goldsboro, N.C., home by the barking of his dog, Air Force Sgt. Edsel G. Sutherland loaded his shotgun and went to the kitchen. When Sutherland entered, a man grabbed the end of his shotgun. Edsel pulled the trigger and the intruder fell to the floor mortally wounded. (Goldsboro News-Argus, Goldsboro, NC)
