There aren’t many cars on the road at 5:30 in the morning. Their small car was cut off by a Dodge Caravan. This was an armed robbery, and two occupants got out of the Caravan. The robbers demanded the driver’s wallet, phone and keys. The driver was a licensed concealed carry holder in the state of Florida, and he was armed.
- Second Story- Do you have a firearm nearby when you’re in bed? A naked man tried to break into several Albuquerque homes late at night. The intruder broke the bedroom window of an elderly couple’s home. The couple was asleep in their bed. The male homeowner grabbed a gun he keeps near the bed and shot the intruder several times. The intruder ran. He jumped several fences before neighbors saw him and reported him to police.
