The Armed Citizen® May 29, 2018

Some criminals might believe that a numerical advantage is enough to come out ahead during a home invasion, but that doesn’t always hold true when the victims exercise their Second Amendment right. Three thugs kicked down a back door during a daylight break-in at a Baker, La., home one day, thinking the odds were in their favor. It was a three-against-one situation, and they used metal pipes to beat the resident. But the stalwart citizen proved that one with a gun can take on three, wounding one of the aggressors critically and sending the others scurrying off. Police were seeking the others.

A woman was out walking her dog one Sunday morning when she noticed a man get out of a van and begin to follow her. She eventually lost sight of the stranger and continued walking her dog. Suddenly, the miscreant came out from behind a trashcan and started walking toward her. As he passed her, he attempted to grab the back of her jacket, but his hand slipped. The woman, who has a license to carry, immediately grabbed her gun and pointed it at her assailant, who fled the scene. (Macomb Daily, Sterling Heights, MI, 12/5/17)
