The Armed Citizen® June 25, 2013

Two teenage boys were spotted by a neighbor as they loaded items from the cabin next door into a vehicle parked outside. The youths wore what appeared to be blood-spattered clothing. The neighbor retrieved a firearm and confronted the interlopers. They were held at gunpoint until police arrived. The teens had run away from a juvenile rehabilitation camp just two days before. They had broken into the cabin and brutally murdered the elderly couple staying there before the armed citizen was able to stop them. (The Kansas City Star, Springfield, MO, 4/24/13)

At 11:18 p.m. Friday, Cheltenham Township Police went to the Lynnewood Gardens apartments after a report of a shooting. They found Jasper Brisbon, 32, in the living room of one of the units, with a gunshot wound to his torso. He was taken to Abidngton Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police said Brisbon had forced his way into an apartment and confronted a resident, who got an AR-15 and insisted Brisbon leave. When Brisbon approached him instead, the resident fired one shot, then called 911, authorities said. The resident has not been charged with a crime, said Montgomery County First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele. (The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia, PA, 4/23/13)

August 1976: After asking to see a rifle on display in Harold Von Wahlde's Anderson, Ind., gun store, a man pulled out a revolver and demanded money. Von Wahlde, 71, attempted to grab the gun and a struggle ensued. When the robber's gun misfired, Von Wahlde grabbed a .38 cal. handgun from a shelf behind him and fired one shot that mortally wounded the thug. (The Anderson Daily Bulletin, Anderson, Ind.)
