The Armed Citizen

A man, his girlfriend and their two children were getting out of their vehicle outside the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on Dec. 31, 2023, when two armed men charged at them. The suspects reportedly grabbed the man and demanded the silver chain around his neck, but then struck him in the back of the head. The man drew his own firearm and pointed it at the suspects, who fired at him, and he fired back. The alleged assailants fled, firing back at the family as they went, fortunately not striking anyone. Later, a car which matched the description of the one the suspects fled in, dropped off a man at the hospital whose clothing matched the security footage from the museum. The man was reported as “medically unresponsive,” but faced several charges, including attempted first-degree murder, should he recover. The other person from the vehicle was not apprehended at the time of the report. (, Denver, Colo., 1/2/24)

A 31-year-old concealed-carry-permit holder was outside in Chicago, Ill., on Dec. 9, 2023, when two men in a vehicle pulled up near him and allegedly started shooting for unknown reasons. One of the bullets struck the victim in the chest, but the man drew his own firearm and shot back, striking both assailants and killing one. The victim was hospitalized in fair condition. The investigation was still ongoing. (, Chicago, Ill., 12/10/23)
