A 35-year-old woman woke around 3:30 a.m. and checked on her husband, who was up late working on his computer. The couple was startled when their home alarm sounded. The woman's husband checked the surveillance footage on his computer only to discover four masked men working to pry open a window. One of the men carried a rifle. As the woman dialed 911, her husband retrieved his own firearm. The intruders gained entry within minutes. The homeowner crouched behind a sofa and fired. The intruders returned fire before fleeing the home. No one was reportedly injured. (The Times-Picayune, New Orleans, LA, 11/16/12)

A naked Miami man jumped the fence of a Little Haiti home, and began choking a Rottweiler. The dog's yelp awakened the homeowner, who came outside armed and confronted the attacker. The intruder turned his attention from the dog to the homeowner. He jumped on the homeowner, and began choking and biting him, according to Miami police. The homeowner fired his gun twice, hitting the intruder once in the foot. Despite being wounded, the intruder was not deterred. The homeowner restrained the assailant, until police arrived. The intruder attempted to bite the police as well. They took him to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he was treated, and he now faces several charges. (The Miami Herald, Miami, FL, 1/5/13)

From The Armed Citizen Archives

October 1968: Three gunmen met a deadly fusillade from a .38 revolver when they attempted to hold up Andrew Snyder, proprietor of the Serve-U Market in Union Gap, Wash. When one of the trio barked, "This is a holdup," Snyder whipped a revolver from his belt, killed 2 of the men and critically wounded the third. (Post Intelligencer, Seattle, WA)
