Yep, the second story was an off duty officer who also didn't have to do anything. This thread is very young though and will be filled with examples of average joes and janes defending their integrity with hot lead.
The New Richard Nixon, on 20 March 2013 - 12:08 PM, said:
I think there should be a limit to have how many guns a person should have.
One can never have too many guns. Although one should keep and maintain only those that they feel capable of having. Guns in private ownership as protected by the 2nd Amendment is there in place to defend ourselves from the politicians. The military is to defend us from foreign threats. The authority and power to run this nation does not lie in the hands of the ruling elite but in the hands of the people and that is why they should never relinquish their guns.
Again I post that the best thing about the gun ban efforts by Democrats was that the end result is that this country is far more armed than ever before.
Truth is such a rare quality, a stranger so seldom met in this civilization of fraud, that it is never received freely, but must fight its way into the world

Robert Heinlein: SECRECY IS THE HALLMARK OF TYRANNY!
Personally, I like the "grandmother holds two men for police" that still comes up when I check for it. I'm sorry, I'm having trouble with copy and paste on my computor at the moment. There have been all kinds of articles from local news stations around the US if you google "home invader shot", "woman shoots home invader", or "multiple home invaders shot".
They don't make a big splash in national news, but they have a huge effect on the local communities.
It all happened around 1:20 in the area of Pine and Gilcrease. Police say the homeowner's alarm went off, so he got up to check on his kids. Police say that's when he saw the suspect coming in through a backdoor.
The suspect then ran out the same way, and the homeowner fired one shot at him. POlice say that bullet is lodged in the door. No one inside was hurt and the suspect got away. Police don't have a good description of the suspect, they only know he was wearing black clothing.
WARRENTON, Ore. – Police say a homeowner in the coastal community of Hammond shot and wounded a suspected burglar.
Warrenton Police Chief Matthew Workman says an officer heard the shot Friday night, a few minutes after dispatchers received a call from a neighbor saying the homeowner was holding an intruder at gunpoint.
When the officer went inside, he found 25-year-old Tony Tischer wounded on the floor. The officer calmed Tischer until help arrived, and the man was taken to the hospital.
The name of the 44-year-old homeowner has yet to be released. Workman says the man gave his 12-gauge shotgun to the officer and has cooperated with investigators.
No arrests have been made.
