Upon stopping at an intersection, a motorist noticed a man approaching. Before he could react, the man reached through the window and punched him several times. Stunned by the blows, the motorist reached for his handgun, which he has a permit to carry. As his attacker reached behind his back, as if for a weapon, the motorist drew his gun and fired a shot, striking the assailant in the upper torso. The suspect will be charged following his release from the hospital. (WZXT-TV, Jacksonville, Fla., 7/15/11)

(The following account did not appear in the print version of American Rifleman.)

A Tenneesee man was at home in his bedroom late one evening when he heard loud banging on his front door. When he went to see who it was, three men burst through his door and approached him. The homeowner grabbed a shotgun and fired one round, causing the men to flee. He later found one of the suspects collapsed in his driveway with a bullet wound. The suspect was in serious condition at the time of this posting. (timesnews.net, Piney Flats, TN, 06/22/10)
