The Armed Citizen, The True Story of your Second Ammendment Rights 004

The Armed Citizen, 

It was just after 5 a.m. when Graham Ricks awoke to loud noises and realized someone was breaking the back door. “I always wondered, ‘Was I going to be able to do what I needed to do if someone came in the house?’” Ricks recalls. He was about to find out. Police say he called 9-1-1, obtained a firearm and crouched behind a wall as the intruder jostled the door open. “He turned towards me and I saw he had a gun and I fired,” Ricks said. The suspect fled the home, possibly injuring himself as he jumped from the porch. (WKYT-CBS27, Lexington, KY, 11/01/09) 

Studies indicate that firearms are used over 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.
