Police said they won’t charge a New Mexico man who shot someone to protect his daughter. Albuquerque law officers responded to a “shots fired” call and found a 40-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds to his legs. The investigation revealed that the wounded man, an ex-boyfriend of the daughter, was armed and was trying to gain entry to the residence. The man had a history of allegedly making threats against the woman, and police said the father will not be charged. (KRQE.com, Albuquerque, NM, 6/24/16)

The Armed Citizen® Extra
A man was sitting in a parked vehicle when a would-be robber approached, grabbed his clothing and demanded money. The intended victim displayed his own handgun and proceeded to hold the thief at gunpoint while he called police. The attempted robber was arrested and charged with one count of robbery. (Courier Journal, Louisville, KY, 7/6/16)

December 1982
Under the bed was no place to hide for a burglar in Reading, Pa. Returning home from an evening out, Mrs. Basilino Cruz heard a noise in the bedroom. She called to her husband to get his gun. “Don’t shoot!” the intruder cried out and surrendered. Police came and took him away. (The Eagle, Reading, PA)
