A Yuma, Arizona man’s escape from the police was promptly impeded when confronted by an armed homeowner.
38-year-old Jesus Coronado was fleeing from the police when he chose the wrong house to break into. Upon entering the home, Coronado was met with the armed homeowner.
According to a KYMA news report, Coronado sustained a gunshot wound in the hand before he made off with the homeowner’s gun.
The homeowner was armed with a weapon and a short scuffle ensued. Coronado was shot in the hand but was non-life threatening.
Coronado took the homeowner's firearm and left the residence with the weapon. The officer heard the gunshot and yelling inside the home leading him to enter to search for Coronado.
As Coronado crossed the street he was apprehended and arrested.
No other injuries were involved.
Yuma County Sheriff's Office's Criminal Investigation unit is leading the investigation and is still underway.
Coronado has been released from Yuma Regional Medical Center and was booked at the Yuma County Detention Center where he faces charges of robbery, aggravated assault and an outstanding felony warrant for unlawful flight from law enforcement.
Coronado took a gamble when he decided to break into the home and he came out on the losing side.
The homeowner was able to confront this criminal and lead police to an arrest, thanks to his Constitutional Right to bear arms.

An armed suspect burst into a gas station and demanded money from the cash registers.
To his surprise, one of the clerks pulled out a gun and fired at him instead.
The suspect turned and fled to his bicycle outside but realized that his “arm didn’t work.” So he ran to a nearby restaurant to ask for help.
After being taken to a hospital, the suspect was apprehended by the police, where he confessed to the robbery attempt and another successful robbery at a different gas station.
He told police that he targeted gas stations because “they are supposed to just hand over the money and not try to stop anyone.”
No charges were filed against the station clerk – who did everyone a favor by using the Second Amendment to teach an important life lesson to this robber.

PHOENIX - A 17-year-old is recovering from a gunshot wound after reportedly committing two armed robberies.
Court records show that a male teen robbed one store and tried to rob another when he was confronted by an armed clerk who shot him in the arm.
Police report that on December 28, the 17-year-old suspect entered a QT store near 35th Avenue and Baseline Road with a handgun and demanded money, along with Swisher Sweet Cigars and a pack of Marlboro Reds. The clerk reported to police that the suspect fired three shots, from what sounded like a pellet gun, into the ceiling as he left. Other witnesses told police that he left the store on a ‘cruiser bicycle with white walled tires.’
A trooper was responding to a rollover accident on the freeway when a gunman ambushed him – wounding the trooper’s gun hand.
Despite his wound, the trooper began physically fighting back, but it was a losing struggle.
However, an approaching driver saw the scene and stopped, and witnessed the attacker on top of the trooper, pounding the trooper’s head in the pavement.
When the trooper asked for help, the civilian driver got his own gun, shot the attacker – killing him – and then used the trooper’s radio to call for help.
After he was transported via helicopter to a hospital, reports indicated that the trooper will recover from his injuries. But who knows whether he would still be breathing if the armed civilian hadn’t come to the rescue.
Local news reports:
A man traveling to California came to the rescue of a wounded state trooper who was struggling with the gunman who had shot him on an isolated stretch of Interstate 10, authorities said.
The man, who was with his wife, stopped his car when he came upon a rollover accident and saw the struggle, according to Col. Frank Milstead, Arizona Department of Public Safety director.
Two Maricopa County homeowners returned home late one night, only to find an unknown vehicle parked in their driveway.
Upon entering the home, they discovered a burglar and confronted him, causing a struggle between the two parties which ultimately led to one homeowner firing on the suspect multiple times.
It turns out the punk who had invaded their home had previous burglaries on his record. Police then discovered that the car outside was also stolen.
The burglar was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and has hopefully learned a valuable lesson.
Local news reports:
A teenage burglar was shot by a homeowner after breaking into a Buckeye residence Wednesday, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

The homeowners confronted an 18-year-old man upon entering the house, Matteson said.
Arizona is now officially saying concealed carry permit holders can carry on private school property—middle, elementary, and high schools alike.
State Senator Steve Yarbrough had requested an opinion from the Attorney General, on behalf of private schools that had asked “what they could do to make their campuses safer.”
The Attorney General’s legal opinion states that the Federal Gun Free School Zones Act does NOT prohibit a licensed concealed permit holder from carrying on private school property.
The AG also stated nothing in federal or state law prohibits schools from securely storing guns on private school campuses.
Local news reports:
Arizona’s private elementary, middle and high schools can allow guns on campus, according to a new Arizona Attorney General’s Office opinion.
Sen. Steve Yarbrough, R-Chandler, requested the legal opinion several months ago. He got his answer late Friday. According to Attorney General Mark Brnovich, state and federal law do not prevent an individual with an Arizona concealed-carry weapons permit from carrying a concealed gun on private school grounds in Arizona. They also do not prevent schools from having guns secured on campus for use by trained employees who are not police officers as part of a school-approved program.

“Senator McCain has consistently been an enemy of the Second Amendment, but you don’t have to take my word for it -- just look at his record.” said Dudley Brown, NAGR-PAC Director.

Mary Poppins once said a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down; Democrats are looking for a spoonful of sugar to make the poison go down — gun control.
Gabby Giffords’ gun-control group, Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS) PAC, with leading Democrat gun-grabbers, are coaching fellow Democrats on dropping typical gun control language for messaging like “preventing gun tragedies” to lure people into supporting gun control and voting for gun-grabbing politicians.

They’re even mimicking pro-gun phrases, such as “with freedom comes responsibility.”
“We co-opted their language,” admitted Dave Walker, a pollster with Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, which ARS hired to poll Americans’ opinions on gun rights.
Another strategy emphasizes bringing in more men, gun owners, hunters, as well as ER doctors and police, to push the re-vamped gun control sloganeering.
Responsible gun-owners like you have had success in holding back the tidal wave of gun control — and that’s why Democrats are looking for new schemes to pull the wool over people’s eyes.

Democrats itching to slug it out with [Second Amendment supporters] this fall need to stop attacking the gun-rights group and start sounding a little more like it, particularly when it comes to respecting freedom and safety, according to new message testing from a group founded to enact tighter gun laws.
While Democrats think they have a winning election-year issue, a group led by former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband, Mark Kelly, is pushing to rebrand their effort — based on poll and focus-group data — in the hope that it will take root in an American culture that has long accepted gun ownership, if not revered it in parts of the country. It’s a cultural linkage that’s likely to be highlighted Tuesday at the Republican National Convention, as the top lobbyist for the NRA plans to take the stage, as will Donald Trump Jr., who has touted his affinity for hunting.
With that in mind, representatives from a broad mix of progressive groups sat around a table last week at the Washington offices of Global Strategy Group, where they received a tutorial on how — and how not — to talk about guns. Leading the lesson were top officials from Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, the campaign wing of the group Giffords and Kelly founded after the Sandy Hook massacre.
