When a gunman entered U.S. Rep. Leonard Boswell’s home, attacked his daughter and demanded money, Boswell ran to the entryway and attempted to disarm the suspect. “When you see one of the people that you love very much, you see they’re in that kind of danger, why, you have to do something,” Boswell said. Perhaps the intruder would’ve picked a different home had he known Boswell is an NRA A-rated Democrat. As Boswell struggled with the man, his 22-year-old grandson retrieved a shotgun and trained it on the intruder. The suspect fled the home. (FoxNews.com, 07/17/11)

A 61-year-old Rochester, NY, man was walking down the street late one evening when two men approached him from behind and took cash from his back pocket. When the man turned to face the thieves, he saw one of them had pulled out a knife. Fearing for his life, the man drew a handgun he is licensed to carry and fired one shot, causing the two men to flee. (Democrat & Chronicle, Rochester, NY, 04/22/10)

From The Armed Citizen Archives

October 1979: When Freda Himelfarv heard strange noises coming from the adjacent apartment of Broward, Fla., physician Wallace Knight, she called a neighbor, Martin Robinson, who armed himself with a .38 and investigated. Hearing Knight's screams for help, Robinson burst into the apartment and knocked the doctor clear of a knife-wielding assailant. Robinson held the attacker at gunpoint until police arrived, and Knight was rushed to a hospital for treatment of multiple stab wounds. (The Herald, Miami, Fla.)
