A 19-year-old male allegedly knocked on the door of a rural home early one morning with ill intent. When the homeowner came to the door, the suspect threatened the man with a gun and stole $150 in cash and his licensed medical marijuana. The man didn’t stop there. Instead of leaving the residence, he continued to threaten the homeowner by pointing his gun through the dog door. The homeowner retrieved his own firearm and shot the suspect six times. He was taken to the hospital for treatment and is expected to be charged after his release. (KOAT7, Taos, N.M., 7/16/12)

October 1959: An ex-convict with a fresh bullet wound from a previous robbery attempt was killed by the owner of a Portland, Oreg., drive-in as he chopped his way into the restaurant with a hatchet. Proprietor Phil Anderson, awakened in his nearby home, sped to the restaurant with gun in hand. When Anderson entered, the burglar struck him on the arm with the hatchet and fled. Anderson shot him dead just as he reached the highway. (The Oregonian)
