Studies indicate that firearms
are used more than 2 million
times a year for personal
protection, and that the
presence of a firearm, without
a shot being fired, prevents
crime in many instances.
Shooting usually can be
justified only where crime
constitutes an immediate,
imminent threat to life, limb,
or, in some cases, property.

n armed robber was shot dead by a
22-year-old man early in the morning
on Detroit's West side. Two men on foot
reportedly approached three people, seated
inside a vehicle, from behind and attempted
to rob them. One robber, armed with a
gun, allegedly assaulted the driver and
demanded items. The 22-year-old drew his

fled. (detroitnews.com, Detroit, Mich.,

n Phoenix, Ariz., a knife-wielding carjacker
was fatally shot while attempting to rob
a 19-year-old man at a gas station. The
man was seated in his car by the fuel pump
with his door open. A woman allegedly
approached the driver to distract him as the
carjacker snuck up behind the vehicle owner
with a knife and demanded his car. The
vehicle owner pulled out his handgun and
fired several shots, striking the carjacker.
The carjacker died of his injuries at the
scene. The vehicle owner called police
immediately to report what happened and
waited for officers to arrive. The woman
with the carjacker allegedly fled the scene.
However, police reportedly found her hiding
in an area residence and arrested her. She
was booked in jail on two felony counts,
including armed robbery. (azcentral.com,

A

home intruder in Sioux City, Iowa, was
stopped in his tracks by a homeowner
who used his firearm to defend himself.
The intruder, under the influence of LSD
and morphine, broke windows to enter
the home. After entering, he proceeded
to damage the inside of the house. The
homeowner confronted the man and asked
him to leave. The intruder refused to leave
and physically assaulted the homeowner.
The homeowner retrieved his firearm and
shot the intruder. The man later died from
his injuries in a hospital. An autopsy revealed
the presence of drugs in his system. The
Woodbury county attorney ruled in July
that the homeowner acted in self-defense
and justifiably used deadly force. (kscj.com,

A

home intruder wearing only boxer shorts
and tennis shoes was shot dead in Gallia
County, Ohio, by a woman after he menaced
her with kitchen shears. The 51-year-old man
was under the influence of amphetamines
when he entered the woman's home and
tripped the alarm system. The woman found
him in a common area of the house. After a
brief confrontation, she retrieved a firearm
from a bedroom. The man brandished a pair of
kitchen shears at the woman in an aggressive
manner. The woman shot him twice. During an
investigation into the incident, law enforcement
verified that neither the man nor the woman
previously knew each other. According to
the local sheriff and prosecuting attorney,
the armed citizen acted in self-defense and
had no alternative but to use her firearm. No
charges will be filed against her. (wtap.com,
Parkersburg, W. Va., 7/3/19)

A

Florida homeowner used an AR-15platform rifle to protect himself from
four alleged home invaders who reportedly
broke into his house intending to rob him.
An hour before the invasion, one of the
men apparently knocked on the door and
attempted to lure the homeowner outside
by claiming to need help with his vehicle.
The owner refused, explaining that he was
disabled. The man returned later with three
others and broke into the home, entering
both at the front and rear of the residence.
Awakened by the noise, the homeowner
grabbed his AR-15 rifle that he kept near
his bed for protection. Two robbers fired at
the homeowner. One, wearing a "Jason"
mask and gloves on both hands, used a
semi-automatic pistol, while the other was
a 22-year-old armed with a shotgun. In the
ensuing exchange of gunfire, one robber
was killed at the scene. The other died from
his injuries in a hospital. The homeowner
was wounded during the invasion and
subsequently hospitalized, but was reported
to be in stable condition. Police tracked the
alleged accomplices to a nearby wooded
area using a sheriff's K-9 unit, and they were
arrested and charged with multiple offenses.
The homeowner told police he thought he
recognized one of the alleged assailants from
a prior online sales transaction. (villagesnews.com, Summerfield, Fla., 7/11/19)
