  • The Armed Citizen defense stories

    A man was standing outside his vehicle one morning when two men, one armed with a handgun, approached him demanding his keys. The victim, who had a valid concealed-carry license, pulled out his gun and fired, striking one of the criminals. The wounded robber was taken to a hospital while the other managed to run away, but was later apprehended by police. (Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago, IL, 5/10/17)

    Rev. James Teamer of Charlotte, N.C., and his wife, awakened by a disturbance, discovered the lights were not working. After arming himself with a pistol, the 77-year-old Teamer confronted four intruders entering through a rip in the porch screen. Teamer told them to leave, but one advanced and the elderly cleric shot and wounded him. The intruders fled, but were arrested later. (The News and Observer, Raleigh, NC)

    Early one Sunday morning, a masked and armed criminal attempted to crawl through a bedroom window of a house only to find the homeowner armed as well. The homeowner shot the intruder, who then fled on foot. Shortly after, police found the trespasser and took him to the hospital, where he passed away. Authorities stated that the homeowner appears to have acted within the law. (Courier Press, Evansville, IN, 5/21/17)

    Hope Crane opened fire with a cal. .22 pistol when burglars attempted to gain entry to his Atlanta store. Crane had returned to his place of business late in the evening and found evidence of theft. He fired at the burglars when they returned to come through the window for the second time. Four suspects were arrested with part of the loot, one requiring treatment for a bullet wound. (Atlanta Journal, Atlanta, GA)

    Justifiable self-defense. That’s how Oklahoma officials have described a triple shooting by a 22-year-old who used an AR-15-style rifle to kill three intruders who broke into his home. The young man was asleep when three strangers, all clad in black, broke into the house. After being awakened by noises made during the break-in, the resident grabbed his semi-automatic rifle. Seeing the intruders, whose faces were covered with masks, the armed citizen fired, killing two suspects on the spot; the third ran away, but died in the driveway. After the young man shot the home invaders, he barricaded himself in his room and called 9-1-1. When the police arrived, they discovered that one of the troublemakers was armed with a knife, while a second had a pair of brass knuckles. A weeklong investigation led officials to determine that the shooter apparently was in fear for his life when he shot, thus he was protected under Oklahoma’s “Stand Your Ground” law. A woman has since been arrested and charged in connection with planning the burglary. (Tulsa World, Tulsa, OK, 4/4/17)

    When Rufus Freeman caught two safecrackers in his store near Minter City, Miss., and one turned on him with a shotgun, Freeman killed him with his own shotgun. The pistol-armed accomplice ran through the store firing at Freeman, and the storekeeper felled him with one more blast. (Memphis Commercial Appeal, Minter City, MS)

    Burglars might not be the brightest people in the world, but one in Alabama was smart enough to recognize the sound of a gun being cocked, after which he knew enough to give up and let the homeowner hold him at gunpoint until the police arrived. The family had been sleeping when the sound of breaking glass woke up the parents. While the mother called 9-1-1, the father grabbed a handgun and went into the living room, where he saw someone hiding behind the sofa. The armed citizen cocked his gun, and the intruder raised his hands and asked the man not to shoot. (al.com, Montgomery, AL, 3/28/17)

    I like to read these stories.

    The Lord tells us this in Philippians 4:

    8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

    The world seeks to watch movies about things that are NOT true ( Spiderman, supeman etc)

    I refuse to watch these things because it is against the command of God in the verse above.

    I like these stories because they are true and about the RIGHT thing taking place, that is justice.
