The Armed Citizen® June 8, 2018

Houston police were investigating a case in which a woman used a gun to fend off three attackers who ambushed her in her driveway. The resident arrived home in the overnight hours. Three masked men jumped her as soon as she exited her car. The woman’s mother, who was in the house, noticed the scuffle and called 9-1-1. The victim somehow got away from her assailants and took refuge inside the house. That wasn’t enough to deter the troublemakers, who tried to force their way into the home after her. Once inside, the woman grabbed a gun she kept in the home for defensive purposes. As the suspects pushed through the door, the woman fired, sending the men scurrying off.

A couple was on their way home one evening when they saw a woman being held at gunpoint. Fearing for the woman's life, they went into action. The male bystander, a licensed handgun holder, drew his pistol and faced the armed robber, ordering him to drop his gun, a .22-cal. revolver. The robber eventually complied, but during a subsequent struggle between the two, the robber was able to grab the bystander's gun and discharge a round into the pavement. He eventually broke free of the bystander’s hold and fled. Police found the thug nearby and arrested him on multiple felony charges. (Telegram & Gazette, Worcester, MA, 5/8/18)

As a gun-wielding youth was in the process of holding up Ernest Duncan’s grocery store in Kansas City, Kan., Duncan’s wife entered the store. The youth’s attention was distracted momentarily—just long enough for Duncan to reach under the counter and produce his pistol. He disarmed the gunman and held him for police.
