The Armed Citizen® July 30, 2018

Having a security system didn’t protect a Florida woman against a break-in by her ex-boyfriend, but having an armed son did. The man approached his ex-girlfriend’s house one day around 1 a.m. The woman received a security alert and called police, but her ex fled before the police arrived. A few hours later, the man returned and, disregarding the security system, broke into the home. The woman’s adult son shot the intruder as he made his way toward the bedroom of a younger sibling. The woman’s ex-boyfriend jumped from the second-floor window and ran, but the police soon tracked him down. He was taken to a hospital and charges were pending. Police ruled it a justifiable shooting. (mycbs4.com, Ocala, FL, 5/20/18)

C.H. Meadows, 83, awoke to find an intruder choking his wife. When the Longview, Texas, householder tried to intervene, the criminal threatened him with a butcher knife. When the intruder began ransacking the house for loot, Meadows grabbed a .410 shotgun and opened fire, hitting the assailant in the shoulder and putting him to flight.
