The Armed Citizen® March 29, 2019

A Texas couple out doing errands had to fight their way out of danger after being targeted by criminals looking for someone to rob. The husband-and-wife duo were followed on their way from a bank to the grocery store, and then upon loading groceries into their car, a black SUV pulled into an adjacent parking space. Abruptly, one of the SUV’s occupants jumped out, pulled a gun and demanded the woman’s purse. Fearing for his wife’s safety, her husband drew his own firearm and used it to fend off the suspects. The two robbers—both injured—drove off, but proceeded to crash their vehicle before attempting to flee on foot. Police arrested one suspect after he turned up at a nearby fire station seeking help for a shoulder wound. (abc13.com, Katy, Texas, 12/29/18)

After a Chesapeake homeowner confronter an intruder trying to enter his home via the attached garage, he quickly gave him firm commands to leave. Unfortunately for both of them, the man did not listen, which left the homeowner with little choice. He discharged his firearm at the would-be home invader, who was later taken to a hospital with life threatening injuries. (WTKR, Chesapeake, Va., 02/28/19)
