A seventy-year-old veteran was dropping off his friend when two strangers pulled up next to his car.


The strange men began asking for directions, but once the vet began to answer, one of the men drew a firearm.


But the veteran was prepared, and took out his own weapon, opening fire on both suspects.


One of the thugs succumbed to his gunshot wounds. The other was injured and is in police custody.


The authorities have filed no charges against the veteran, saying that he was well within his rights.


In fact, both of the suspects were wanted for other violent crimes, and the county attorney believes that law enforcement will be able to solve possibly dozens of other armed robberies – all due to the brave, responsible action of one armed American.


Local news reports:

An armed veteran from St. Louis killed one man and injured another during an armed robbery attempt in the metro east.

But, on Friday, prosecutors said the veteran's actions are justified, and could help solve dozens of other violent crimes in Illinois and Missouri.

Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons said this case should serve as a warning to criminals. If you’re coming to the Metro East to break the law, you could end up staring down the barrel of a gun.

Cab driver a victim no longer


A New York taxi driver grew uneasy after taking a passenger to several different addresses.


When it became clear she wasn’t going to pay him, he stopped driving, and said he was going to call 911.


The passenger escalated into violence by pulling out an ice pick and stabbing the cab window a few times, and then she began advancing on him with the weapon.


Four years ago, the cab driver had been attacked and stabbed 13 times – which motivated him to purchase a handgun, and he was carrying it that evening.


He pulled out his handgun and told her not to come any further. “Don’t make me do this. I don’t want to have to hurt you.”


This halted her advance, and he jumped into the taxi and drove away.


Police have arrested the menacing passenger on several charges. As for the taxi driver, “The guy did everything correct,” said a police lieutenant.


Local news reports:

Robber shocked by armed clerk


An armed suspect burst into a gas station and demanded money from the cash registers.


To his surprise, one of the clerks pulled out a gun and fired at him instead.


The suspect turned and fled to his bicycle outside but realized that his “arm didn’t work.” So he ran to a nearby restaurant to ask for help.


After being taken to a hospital, the suspect was apprehended by the police, where he confessed to the robbery attempt and another successful robbery at a different gas station.


He told police that he targeted gas stations because “they are supposed to just hand over the money and not try to stop anyone.”


No charges were filed against the station clerk – who did everyone a favor by using the Second Amendment to teach an important life lesson to this robber.

A trooper was responding to a rollover accident on the freeway when a gunman ambushed him – wounding the trooper’s gun hand.


Despite his wound, the trooper began physically fighting back, but it was a losing struggle.


However, an approaching driver saw the scene and stopped, and witnessed the attacker on top of the trooper, pounding the trooper’s head in the pavement.


When the trooper asked for help, the civilian driver got his own gun, shot the attacker – killing him – and then used the trooper’s radio to call for help.


After he was transported via helicopter to a hospital, reports indicated that the trooper will recover from his injuries. But who knows whether he would still be breathing if the armed civilian hadn’t come to the rescue.

Repeat offender commits his last crime


A convict recently released from prison was prowling around a neighborhood and spotted a house that appeared to have no one inside.


Thinking the house would make an easy target, he broke into the residence through a window.


However, the homeowner and his family returned before the criminal had finished his crime.


Upon entering the house, the homeowner immediately noticed things were out of place – but before he could act, the suspect attacked the homeowner with a baseball bat.


Not to be made a victim, the homeowner was armed, and used his firearm to fatally shoot the criminal.


Detectives believe the homeowner acted in self-defense and will press no charges. The criminal had an extensive history and had served jail time for armed robbery and carjacking.

On Monday evening in North Carolina, a woman was walking home from work. As she approached her apartment, she passed a bystander carrying a trash bag, and thought nothing of it.


But just when she unlocked her apartment door, the man she had passed by suddenly sprang into action, grabbing her from behind, and shoving her inside the apartment.


As he held her in a vise-like grip, she realized he also had a gun.


While this woman was struggling to break free from this dangerous thug, he began choking and gagging her, demanding money from his victim.


He violently forced the woman into her bedroom, where he tied her hands behind her back with a belt and wrapped a phone charger around her mouth.


But while the thug searched the apartment, she wriggled loose from her bonds and grabbed the gun that she kept on a Bible by her bed.


All it took was one shot to stop and kill the attacker.


Later, authorities would tell the would-be victim that the aggressor was a felon with multiple convictions for burglary and other crimes. Our right to keep and bear arms saved her life from a repeat offender.


No charges have been filed against this woman.
