The Armed Citizen® September 24, 2018

A high-speed pursuit with California Highway Patrol officers behind him apparently wasn’t enough trouble for a reckless driver out west. After the chase, which reached speeds of 105 mph, led to the loss of control of his car, the driver exited his vehicle and fled the scene on foot. Soon enough, he came upon a home. He grabbed a beer bottle he found on the ground and forced his way into the house, whereupon he threatened to do harm unless the residents turned over the keys to their car. A woman in the home retrieved the keys from another room, but when she returned to give them to the man, she had a surprise—a handgun. She handed that to her male friend, who aimed it at the intruder and told him to stop. The perpetrator refused this sound advice and instead went to the garage and started the car. Later, he drove it toward the resident, who shot him to death through the windshield. (kolotv.com, Janesville, CA, 7/11/18)

A man bent on embarking on a crime spree began by gaining entrance to a residence and attempting to cause damage to the inside of the home. The resident called 9-1-1 to report the break-in, then he and his family safely made it to a neighbor’s house. Minutes later, a second 9-1-1 call was made from a neighboring residence reporting that an intruder had broken into their locked screened porch, shattered a glass door to the home and attempted entry. The homeowner ordered the trespasser to leave but the intruder continued his entry. The homeowner, fearing for his family’s safety, fired multiple rounds at the trespasser, hitting him. The criminal was taken to a local hospital, and the homeowner was not arrested. (Georgetown Gazette, Cool, CA, 8/ 8/18)

September 1979
Clifton Williams, a Buffalo, N.Y., armed security guard, returned to his home one evening to find a burglary in progress. Entering the premises, Williams confronted a man who was carrying off his TV set. Instead of surrendering, the thief dropped the set and lunged at Williams, who shot his attacker once, fatally.
