Tattoo artist Sean Rodriguez was working one afternoon when he was alerted to an assault taking place outside Black Cobra Tattoo. Six men could be seen assaulting an individual in the parking lot. "I couldn't just sit back and watch an innocent person being hurt,…" said Rodriguez. He grabbed the firearm he is licensed to carry and approached the group of men. Upon seeing the gun, the suspects fled. Rodriguez never fired a shot, nor did he point the gun in their direction. "That was just an incident of a responsible gun owner doing what they're supposed to do," Rodriguez explained. The victim was treated for minor injuries and nothing was stolen. It was last reported that all six suspects are still at large. (The Daily Times, Salisbury, MD, 3/21/13)

A hatchet-wielding intruder broke into an Indiana man's home on Monday morning. The homeowner was asleep when Jason Rabe, 23, shattered a window and entered the rear of the home. According to the LaPort County Sheriff's Dept., Rabe rode a moped to the house with the intent to break in. When the homeowner awoke to the breaking glass he grabbed his pistol and began to canvass his home, stumbling upon Rave who was carrying a hatchet. Words were exchanged and a fight broke out, during which the homeowner fatally wounded Rabe. The homeowner suffered some cuts and bruises, but declined medical treatment.

From The Armed Citizen Archives

January 1977: A would-be robber was the one who was shocked when he fired an electronic stun gun at Sidney Kerensky of Philadelphia. Only one of the two darts fired from the device connected, and an enraged Kerensky pulled out his conventional pistol and fired three times in the air, sending the man fleeing. The stun gun delivers a shock of 50,000 volts, but only if both darts strike the intended victim. (The Evening Bulletin, Philadelphia, PA)
