The Armed Citizen® September 7, 2018

An employee at a pizza restaurant in Florida used a personal firearm to save his life late one night, successfully stopping someone who ambushed him after the store closed. The bad actor, in a clown mask, allegedly started to beat the employee with a piece of wood, sending the worker sprawling to the ground. “Even though he was being attacked, he’s able to pull out a concealed firearm he has and fires multiple rounds at the suspect,” the police told a news reporter in Orlando. The employee then stowed his gun safely and called 9-1-1. (foxnews.com, Orlando, FL, 5/28/18)

Late one night an intruder broke into a home with the intent of stealing a gun, but fortunately the resident caught the would-be thief before he was able to go through with his criminal act. The resident held the man at gunpoint and called 9-1-1. When police arrived, they arrested the trespasser, who had a previous criminal history, and charged him with one count of felony theft of a firearm. (Times Recorder, Coshocton, OH, 5/25/18)

A man stepped from behind a soft drink machine and stated, “I’m going to blow your head off,” as Lee Phillips left his Bibb, Ga., service station with the receipts in a bag. Phillips raised the cal. .45 automatic he carried and shot the would-be thief twice. Police were able to follow a blood trail to where the wounded holdup man lay in the bushes.
