    Woof all:

    "The unorganized militia" is defined in Title 10, section 301 of the US Code.

    America is founded upon the idea of the self-defense originating in the people. This right is found in both the Second Amendment and in a proper reading of the Ninth Amendment.

    This thread is for stories of people defending themselves and/or others.



    70-Year-Old Woman Puts Carjacker In Headlock

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- WFTV spoke with a 70-year-old woman Wednesday who put a carjacker in a headlock. The man tried to steal her minivan Tuesday in Daytona Beach while she loaded her groceries. However, Elludee Haliday wasn't willing to give up her van.
    “You don't have time to think.You have to do the best you can to survive,” Haliday said.
    Haliday has five stints in her heart, but she is an active 70-year-old nurse. So, it's no surprise to her that instinct took over when police say the man tried to carjack her at the Walmart on Beville Road Tuesday in broad daylight.

    “I went after him,” she said.
    The victim was loading her groceries inside the minivan when she saw the suspect hop in the driver’s seat. At the same time, she opened the sliding door and got in as he took off.
    “I thought, ‘You’re mine now boy!’” she said.
    Haliday attacked him from behind as he sped out of the parking lot and onto the main road.
    “I grabbed his neck. I had the bear hug like and I kept holding and he kept going,” she explained.
    The suspect caused some damage to the vehicle when he sideswiped several cars. Investigators said he tried to threaten Haliday with a gun, but she still wasn't fazed.
    “I said, ‘I don't think you can reach it. Your pants [are] down to your knees!’” she said.
    Haliday nearly choked him to death before he gave up and jumped out. Turns out his partners in crime were following close behind in a green Kia Sedona the whole time.
    “A van was following him screaming, saying, ‘Bail out, bail out, this woman is crazy!’” Haliday said.
    Everyone else thinks she's one brave 70-year-old woman.
    Haliday said she has a little advice for the suspects.
    “Shape up, get a life, do something to be proud of yourself,” she said.
    Haliday wasn't injured at all during the incident, but was taken to the hospital just to be checked out.

    I just wrote about this incident in my blog.

    I heard in an interview that the van was a gift from her late husband, and she wasn't about to give it up.

    A challenging but quite worthy read for serious students of the English origins of American Constitutional rights to self-defense, which are to be found not only in our Second Amendment, but also IMHO in our Ninth Amendment:
