David Braman, 69, retrieved his revolver before opening the door to a stranger around 8 p.m. The 31-year-old stranger claimed he was having car trouble and asked to use Braman's telephone. Braman was suspicious of the stranger even before spotting the handgun he carried. The stranger then forced his way through Braman's front door and a scuffle ensued. Three of the assailant's accomplices were waiting outside when they heard three gunshots. They then witnessed their co-conspirator stumble out of the homewith a bullet wound to his groin before fleeing. Three of the four assailants were later arrested and charged with numerous counts. The injured trespasser was said to be in critical condition and was being treated at a local hospital. Braman was unharmed. (Times-Tribune, New Milford, PA, 1/16/14)

Paul MacLeod, owner of Graceland Too, a 24-hour Elvis Presley tourist attraction, answered a knock at his front door around 11 p.m. The man at the door, a man MacLeod did not know, broke the glass door and forced his way inside. The stranger demanded money and threatened MacLeod, prompting MacLeod to fire his .45-cal. handgun. The intruder was struck once in the chest and died as a result of his injury. MacLeod was not harmed during the incident. (The Clarion-Ledger, Holly Springs, N.C., 7/17/14)

From The Armed Citizen® Archives January 1980: A San Jose, Calif., woman was attacked by a would-be rapist who had entered her house through an unlocked window.
