The Armed Citizen® August 24, 2018

Two armed men who targeted the home of an 84-year-old in Ohio probably thought the victim would let them do what they wanted and leave. Instead, after one of the interlopers shot the homeowner in his side, the wounded resident grabbed a gun and exchanged gunfire with the culprits. It was unclear if either of the robbers was hit, but having a gun at hand saved the 84-year-old and his grandson, who had crawled out a window onto the roof to protect himself.

A juvenile was caught in the act of robbing a truck early one morning after the owners were alerted from their home security system. The homeowner’s wife was watching TV around 3 a.m. when she saw the light flash from the security system. She woke her husband, who grabbed a gun and went to confront the burglar. He caught the young teenager inside his truck and ordered him to get on the ground. When the juvenile advanced toward the homeowner, the homeowner pointed his gun at him, causing the would-be thief to comply. When police arrived, they discovered a stolen pistol in the teenager's pocket, which he tried to dispose of before the officers arrived. The police arrested the juvenile on multiple charges.

Two men were waiting for Leonard Freidberg, a 47-year-old taxi driver from Jacksonville, Fla., dispatched to an early morning fare. After the cab took the two to their destination, the duo assaulted Freidberg with a small pistol. Freidberg picked up his own .357 revolver and fired, mortally wounding one of his attackers. The slain robber had an extensive prior arrest record. The taxi driver was not charged. (The Democrat, Tallahassee, FL)
