Denard Joe was stopped in his car at an intersection when a man wearing a red bandana tapped on the window and pointed a gun at him. Big mistake. Joe, a concealed-carry permit holder, drew a handgun and opened fire through the window, striking his assailant twice in the chest. The carjacker, who had just been released from state prison last November, ran a short distance and then died. (The Ledger, Lakeland, FL, 04/06/11)

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

A Chandler, Ariz., man and his wife were enjoying a party with friends when two univited male guests showed up and began stealing alcohol. When the host announced the party was winding down, the men-suspected gang members-got angry, threatening other guests and even attacking the Chandler man. A concealed-carry permit holder, the man drew a gun and fatally shot both men. Arizona police cleared him of any wrongdoing, saying he acted in self-defense.

July 1961: Aroused by the sounds of a trespasser outside his home, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Albert Lee Stephens, Jr., slipped out of bed, got his pistol, and eased out the front door. Nearby, in the yard, he surprised a prowler who meekly submitted to the jurist's leveled gun. Police identified the arrested man as a felon with convictions for burglary in Kansas, Missouri, and Texas, and held him as a suspect in a recent outbreak of burglaries in the area.
