OFFICIAL JOURNAL The Armed CitizenĀ® T wo robbery suspects thought a pawn shop run by a 74-year-old woman would be an easy target, but Shirley Cornett proved them wrong. Two men walked into a Springdale, Ark., store in early December, pulled out handguns and started stealing property. As one of the troublemakers jumped the counter toward her husband, Cornett pulled out a .38-cal. revolver and shot the man in the arm. He fired back, and the bullet ricocheted off a pile of books and hit Cornett, but didn't break her skin. The suspects fled to a hospital in Fort Smith, about 65 miles away, where police found the wounded man and later nabbed his alleged partner in crime after a foot chase near the parking lot. Charges are pending against the men. Police reviewed surveillance video and said Cornett acted in self-defense. (5newsonline.com, Fort Smith, Ark., 12/7/14) A 14-year-old boy, Anthony Hernandez, protected his grandparents by shooting and killing a burglar who was breaking into the family's Charlotte, N.C., home by climbing through a window. "My grandson told him to stop and get out of here, and he didn't so my grandson shot him," Anne Marie Wyant said during a 911 call. An accomplice has been arrested and charged, and police said the shooting was justified. The Wyants made a commitment to teach their grandchildren about self-defense six years ago, after Anthony's father was shot to death while working at the auto shop he owned. "[Anthony is] his grandmother's hero," Wyant said. "If I was by myself, God knows what they [the intruder and his cohort] would have done to me." (The Charlotte Observer, Charlotte, N.C., 12/18/14) I n Baton Rouge, La., a resident shot and killed a man during the daylight break-in of his home in early December. The intruder was shot while he was ransacking one of the bedrooms in a house in the Broadmoor neighborhood, a subdivision where residents don't take to crime. "This is not really a neighborhood to mess with," said Pete Dawson, who lives in the area. (The Advocate, Baton Rouge, La., 12/6/14) T wo Palmer, Alaska, burglary suspects who shot one resident of the home they were invading got what was coming to them when the apartment dweller, despite suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, fired back and injured both of the trespassers. Medics treated 10 the 26-year-old resident and he was initially listed in serious condition after being taken to a hospital. Meanwhile, two men suffering from gunshot wounds sought medical help at a regional emergency room. They were admitted and listed in critical condition, and police are investigating whether they are linked to the burglary. (Alaska Dispatch News, Anchorage, Alaska, 12/3/14) C ell phones, a home security system and a gun were used to allow a California homeowner to thwart a home invasion. A 53-year-old Antioch resident, whose name was not released, was working in his home office one day in December. His wife, who had left the home, received an electronic alert from the couple's home security system provider saying that the system had been breached. She then called her husband, who grabbed his gun and went downstairs to investigate. The homeowner found two intruders pawing through his belongings and, fearing for his life, fired several shots, hitting one of the suspects. A few minutes later, two people arrived at the Sutter Delta Medical Center seeking treatment for a man who had gunshot wounds. Police arrested the man and his 19-year-old female companion. No details regarding what charges would be filed against the suspects were available. (San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco, Calif., 12/12/14) B obby Shaw, a 77-year-old Tyler, Texas, homeowner shot and killed a burglar who allegedly invaded Shaw's home. Shaw, who was in his bedroom, heard glass breaking late one December night. He grabbed a shotgun and went to investigate. Shaw spotted an intruder wielding a large tool. When the man charged, Shaw shot him. (Tyler Morning Telegraph, Tyler, Texas, 12/10/2014) A n armed robbery suspect got a surprise when the man he was robbing pulled out a gun instead of his wallet. The attempted theft occurred in Delray Beach, Fla., in early December. The man who was accosted pointed his gun at the suspect and told him to get on the ground. The suspect originally complied, but he later ran away-leaving behind his .38-cal. revolver-when the armed citizen was distracted. Police have made an arrest, and the man faces robbery and aggravated assault charges.

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. Anyone is free to quote or reproduce these accounts.
