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.

For most Americans, the simple task of walking the family dog would probably rank amongst the most uneventful chores of the week.
For one Michigan woman however, a relaxing evening stroll with her dog on December 2nd soon turned into a traumatic situation she would never forget.
While on her walk through the Maple Grove apartments in Sterling Heights Michigan, she noticed the driver of a van behaving very suspiciously.
Thankfully for this woman, her legally concealed firearm was inside her jacket when the would-be attacker approached.
As reported by FOX 32:
“Police say she noticed a man get out of the van on the other side of the street and started walking parallel to her.
Feeling uneasy, the woman, who is in her 40s, and a CPL holder, says she immediately put her hand on her gun that was hidden under her jacket.
Keeping her eye on the man, and continuing to hold her gun, she got to the end of the street and the suspect disappeared.
But then not even a minute later, that's when he came toward her.
"He grabbed the back of her jacket and tried to grab her and pull her towards him," Dwojakowski said.
The woman says she saw the man holding something shiny, possibly a knife.
"She put the gun into the suspect's stomach and said, 'I don't want to kill you,'" Dwojakowski said.
Police say the man appeared shocked and quickly ran off.”
Had it not been for her keen alertness and concealed firearm, who knows what horrors this woman might have faced on the night of the 2nd.
It is the unfortunate truth that in this day and age a violent attacker could be lurking around any corner.
Now more than ever, we need to strengthen our right to keep and bear arms. To do otherwise would leave countless law abiding citizens defenseless.

Late Sunday night, an armed robber burst into a gas station.
He opened fire on the two clerks, hitting one who was unarmed and wounding him in the leg.
But the other clerk was carrying concealed, and, drawing his gun, fired back at the robber – forcing him to beat a retreat.
Police are on the lookout for the suspect. No charges were filed against the clerk.
Local news reports:
The Sunoco clerk who was shot in the attempted armed robbery late Sunday night has been treated and released from the hospital.
The employee suffered a gunshot wound to the upper right thigh, according to a Dayton police report.
The suspect has been described as a black male, about 5-foot-6, 140 to 160 pounds, wearing a black hoodie, dark-colored jeans, white gloves and possibly a surgical mask.
A family leaving a concert was shocked to discover that a burglar had broken into their car.
They called the police to report the crime, and, while waiting for authorities to arrive, heard gunfire ring out close by.
Then, out of the night, a suspect with a gun came charging toward them, firing shots as he ran.
One of the family members was carrying concealed, and he ordered the gunman to drop his weapon.
When the suspect refused to comply, the concealed carrier fired one shot, striking the suspect in the arm.
The suspect was taken to a medical center for treatment and faces charges of deadly conduct. No charges were filed against the concealed carrier.
Local news reports:
SAN ANTONIO - Police say one man was injured after he was shot while running from a possible crime scene on Thursday night.
According to police, some family members leaving a concert after 9 p.m. found their car was burglarized near the downtown intersection of Bonham and 4th Street. While they waited for police to arrive, they heard gunfire and saw a man with a gun running toward them firing more shots.
The danger started with a high-speed chase after a suspect flying down the highway around 120 mph. The chase lasted for at least three exits before the suspect pulled over.
But he wasn’t done yet – when the deputy approached, the suspect erupted into physical violence.
Overpowering the deputy, the suspect was viciously beating his victim when a driver with a concealed carry license arrived on the scene.
Exiting his vehicle, the concealed carrier instructed the suspect to stop beating the deputy, but when the suspect refused, the armed civilian shot the suspect three times.
The suspect succumbed to his wounds. The victimized deputy is expected to recover from his injuries.
Local news reports:
The Monday morning commute in Estero, Florida came to a standstill today after a suspect led police on a wild and deadly chase along southbound I -75.
One of those drivers who got caught up in the drama this morning was Rick Maestas. He spoke to WINK News this morning and had this to say about what he saw:
“There was a high-speed pursuit on the left shoulder when I got off the ramp…there was a man on top of another man …they were struggling for a little bit then I heard three shots…then the man who was sitting on top of the police officer fell to the side…the police officer got up, he was exhausted and laid back down, then help came.”
According to the San Francisco-based Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, not one of the following is a “good reason” to be allowed carry a concealed firearm:
- Personal safety or a desire to protect yourself
- Good moral character, and a lack of felony charges
- Your Second Amendment rights
That’s right. The Ninth Circuit Court claims that the Second Amendment itself does not grant you the right carry a concealed firearm.
Judge William A. Fletcher, who was appointed by Bill Clinton stated: “We hold that the Second Amendment does not preserve or protect a right of a member of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public.”
The decision was split, however, and could possibly be introduced to the Supreme Court.
The good news is, while we wait to see if this case will be re-opened or how it will affect public policy, we have opportunities to fight other forms of gun control at the Federal level.

It was not a good day for gun rights, folks. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Americans do not have the right to carry concealed firearms in public under the Second Amendment, and that personal protection did not satisfy the “good reason” provision for the issuance of a carry permit either (via WSJ):
The San Francisco-based Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 7-4 ruling, upheld a California law requiring residents to show “good cause” for carrying a concealed handgun.
Under the California law, personal safety alone doesn't qualify as good cause, which is defined by county sheriffs. The plaintiffs, gun owners seeking licenses to carry their weapons concealed, said the policies in San Diego and Yolo counties where they live violated their Second Amendment rights.

An Orlando CCW-holder defended himself when threatened with a gun during an agrument at a gas station. The CCW-holder fatally shot the man making threats, and witnesses confirm that he was defending himself.

When a group of four would-be carjackers approached a vehicle in North Miami Beach, Fla., recently, a legally armed passenger reportedly took action before the planned crime could take place.

“He was afraid for his life,” Detective Cora Mann said. “He was protecting himself and his girlfriend.”
