The Armed Citizen® October 9, 2017

Out in the parking lot at his apartment complex, a man was called to aid one of his neighbors. An abused woman, battered for hours by her boyfriend according to police officers, ran from her residence and into her neighbor outside. Her attacker had followed her, and proceeded to get into an argument with the neighbor attempting to help her. The argument escalated with the armed citizen warning the other man to back off. Ultimately, the neighbor was forced to draw his concealed weapon, firing one shot and killing the boyfriend. The man was not arrested and is working with investigators. (, Las Vegas, NV, 7/20/17)

Late one night, a young man broke into a Columbus, Ga., house where he confronted the homeowner, who shot and killed him in self-defense. Under the Castle Doctrine, Georgians are permitted to use deadly force to protect themselves inside their homes if they reasonably believe such force is required to stop “unlawful entry into or attack upon a habitation.” (Ledger-Enquirer, Columbus, GA, 8/8/17)

Hearing a noise late at night in his Tallahassee, Fla., store, Mel Gidden left his apartment in the rear to investigate, armed with a .22 rifle. He was jumped by the intruder and disarmed, but Mrs. Gidden picked up the fallen rifle and hit the burglar on the head. Gidden held him at gunpoint until a deputy sheriff arrived.
