The Armed Citizen® August 31, 2018

A Tennessee teen who was invited to a friend’s house for a sleepover apparently decided he wanted to sleep with his friend’s mother—and not in a consensual way. When he allegedly entered the mother’s bedroom and tried to force himself on her, she responded by kneeing him in the groin, pulling a gun, aiming at his face and telling him to get out. He listened. The 18-year-old faces sexual assault charges. (Lexington Herald-Leader, Lexington, KY, 6/5/18)

Because of the “Stand Your Ground” law, a Kansas man will not be charged after shooting an intruder who attacked him on his front porch. Around 1:30 a.m., the resident awoke to banging on his front door. Through the peephole he could see a male figure  striking and kicking his front door, so he retrieved a gun and exited the back of his house, approaching the man on the porch from outside. Meanwhile, a second resident of the home called 9-1-1 to report the incident in progress. Outside, the resident demanded that the trespasser—who was twice his size—leave. He initially complied, but then turned and advanced on the resident. A struggle ensued on the porch and the resident, fearing for his life and that of the female resident inside, eventually shot his attacker, killing him.

Hearing noises over the intercom that connects the hallways of his Middletown, R.I., motel, Fred Armbrust got his pistol and investigated. Armbrust found a prowler in a darkened room and fired once. The man ran from the motel. Police picked him up when he sought aid for a gunshot wound in his shoulder. (The Newport Daily News, Newport, RI)
