The Armed Citizen® May 17, 2019

Late one evening in Durkee, Ore., a husband and wife noticed a strange car parked in the driveway of a house their neighbors reside in periodically. Curious, the woman called her neighbors to check with them. Discovering the house was supposed to be empty, the woman's husband retrieved his shotgun and headed to the neighbor's house. He found two trespassers and ordered them to leave, while he held them at gunpoint until deputies arrived. The trespassers were determined to have been squatters.

A man in Rapid City, Mich., returned to harass his ex-girlfriend one too many times. After the 26-year old went to the home of his 25-year old ex, now living in the home of her new 23-year old boyfriend, he was told to leave. Slowed but not deterred, the 26-year old returned seven days later, after sending threatening texts to his ex and her new boyfriend. The 23-year old homeowner answered the door with a rifle, but the 26-year old fought his way in, at which point the homeowner shot him in the chest with a "small-caliber" pistol. The intruder is recovering from his injuries at a local hospital. (Traverse City Record Eagle, Rapid City, Mich., 4/15/19)
