NRA Country superstar Craig Morgan was whitetail hunting when he received a terrifying phone call-his daughter’s home was invaded, but luckily Morgan had taught her well. “My daughter was smart enough to go in her bedroom and lock herself in, and she had a pistol, so she was waiting if he came through,” Morgan explained. Rather than face an armed citizen, the suspect fled the home. “I’m grateful that we live in a country where we as citizens have the right to bear arms and protect ourselves,” said Morgan. “God bless the U.S.A.” (www.nracountry.com, 06/29/11)

The Armed Citizen Extra

(The following account did not appear in the print version of American Rifleman.)

When a Tulsa homeowner's door was kicked in by two men late one evening, he was ready to put up a fight. The intruders pointed their guns directly at the homeowner's head, demanding money and pushing him around. A struggle ensued, and the homeowner wrestled the men out into the front yard. After being pistol whipped by one of the men, the homeowner was able to pin one of his attackers to the ground, and reached for a gun that had fallen to the ground. In the process, the gun went off, shooting off several of the attacker's fingers. The homeowner sustained minor injuries. (Tulsa World, Tulska, OK, 10/03/10)

From The Armed Citizen Archives

September 1971: When a man went berserk in a Lennox, Calif., apartment building and began terrorizing two women with a bayonet, Bert Prescott, 32, got a revolver and went to their aid. Failing to stop the assailant with his first shot, Prescott fired again, killing him. (The Los Angeles Herald Examiner, Los Angeles, Calif.)
