Colby Patout and Debra Richard were witness to a vicious dog attack. "They were mauling this guy's leg," Patout said. The man was cycling when two dogs attacked, biting his legs and eventually pulling him off his bike. Patout and Richard rushed to help the man. Richard blocked traffic with her vehicle and Patout grabbed his gun. Patout tried to help the man, who was already seriously injured and bleeding excessively, but was forced to fire at one of the dogs, killing it. Patout said, "I knew this guy needed his life saved at this point. I would want you to stop and do the same for me." Animal Control officials arrived a short time later and retrieved the second dog. Patout said, "This is what our firearms and United States is all about. [It is about] saving lives." (KATC.com, Lafayette, La., 12/23/13)

Two juveniles, 16 and 17, and a 24-year-old man broke into a home around 2:30 a.m. The homeowner woke up when he heard the intruders moving about his home. He grabbed his firearm and shot the 24-year-old, while the other two intruders fled in a vehicle. The intruder suffered life-threatening injuries, and his condition was last reported to be unknown. All three suspects have since been taken into custody and face multiple charges. (The Enquirer, Union Township, Ohio, 6/12/14)

January 1977: Two young men boarded Alejandro Torres' bus in New York City and refused to pay their fare. When Torres insisted, one leaped behind him and stabbed him in the back. As the pair fled, Torres picked himself up from the bus floor and fired several times with his cal. .38 revolver, wounding one assailant. (The Daily News, New York, N.Y.)
