After an argument occurred at a house party, one man was asked to leave. The 27-year-old man returned a short time later with a rifle and began firing shots outside the home. According to witnesses, the man then pointed the rifle at several people attending the party. A 39-year-old partygoer took action to stop what could have resulted in tragedy; he pulled out his own firearm and shot the man brandishing the rifle. The assailant was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported. (KPHO.com, Glendale, Ariz., 10/20/13)

A homeowner was awakened by noises in and around his home shortly before 4 a.m. When he went to investigate, he found a man he did not know climbing through a window that had just been broken. The resident had armed himself with his handgun and ordered the intruder not to move. Instead of complying, the intruder turned toward the resident prompting him to fire. The intruder then jumped out the same window and fled. His body, however, was discovered only a short distance from the home. He was pronounced dead at the scene. (Ravalli Republic, Corvallis, Ore., 3/18/14)

August 1977: 12-year-old Pamela Thompson was alone in her Baltimore, Md., home when she heard someone breaking in. Since the house had no telephone, she could not summon help. So she loaded a cal. .22 rifle and fired once, hitting the would-be robber, who was later apprehended by police. (The Sun, Baltimore, Md.)
