The Armed Citizen® April 5, 2019

An armed citizen provided timely aid to a store employee who was assaulted by two shoplifters. In Loomis, Calif., a man and woman walked into a store and apparently attempted to leave with more than $50 worth of goods. A store employee confronted the pair over the alleged theft and was attacked by the male shoplifter with a knife. As the pair scuffled, the woman picked up the knife in an attempt to injure the worker as well. A bystander with a concealed-carry permit saw the incident and drew a firearm—ordering the woman to drop the knife and remain where she was. Officers soon arrived and arrested the pair for multiple criminal violations. (The Sacramento Bee, Loomis, Calif., 1/4/19)

A clerk at a Nashville auto parts store defended his store, and his life, one Wednesday afternoon. After having an argument with a customer earlier in the day, he saw the same customer pull back up to the store with a shotgun-wielding friend, who began to advance toward the store. The clerk, acting quickly, drew his pistol and shot the man as he advanced, sending him to the hospital with a critical chest wound. (News Channel 5, Nashville, Tenn, 3/13/19)
