OH: Female worker shoots, drives off robber: "The drive-through employee, who declined to identify herself when she agreed to talk by phone later in the day, was working at the Broad Street Beverage at 308 E. Broad St. when the suspect walked in through a raised garage door to the west side of the building, holding a small revolver, police said. “When I saw him with his gun in the air, I ran and shut the door,” she said, referring to the door that separates the drive-through from the inside part of the business. A police press release said the man shattered a window in the door as he slammed against it to force his way inside. As he forced the door open, the woman - who had grabbed her own gun - pointed it at him and fired a single shot, police said. She said she doesn’t know whether she hit him or not. The drive-through robber was described by police as being a black man wearing tan or light-colored pants and a white T-shirt"

MO: Robbery Victim Fires Back, Shoots Attackers: "The victim and his girlfriend were sitting in their car in the parking lot of the Rally's at Jefferson and Lynch, near the Benton Park neighborhood, about 6:15 p.m. Green says two men entered the back seat of the victims' car, and tried to rob the couple at gunpoint. The victim had a gun, and police believe he shot first, as he was exiting the driver's seat. Police say he critically injured both suspects, shooting one in his head and the other in his chest. At least one of the suspects fired at him, shooting him in his leg. While he is listed in serious condition, police believe he will survive. They say both suspects are in critical condition"

NC: Suspect among three shot during gas station robbery: " Two men have been arrested and another hospitalized after an armed robbery at a Moore County gas station Monday night. Demarcus James Dennison, 18, and Leroy Richard Medley, 20, are each charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, and first degree kidnapping. The third man, 17-year-old Randy Joel Williams is in serious condition at Moore Regional Hospital after being shot in the face during the robbery. Police say the three men entered the Short Stop on U.S. Highway 1 in the Lakeview area of Moore County and began to rob the 75-year-old clerk, Grace Kelly at gun point. Kelly's husband was in the parking lot at the time and approached the suspects with a shot gun. He shot through the store front door, shooting Dennison in the face. Grace Kelly was shot in the arm, and her husband, Angus Kelly, suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach."

A victory for gun rights and freedom: "When it comes to gun rights and gun control, liberals are so predictable. Condemning the Supreme Court’s decision in the Chicago gun case that applied the Second Amendment to the states, the New York Times editorialized, ‘Mayors and state lawmakers will have to use all of that room and keep adopting the most restrictive possible gun laws — to protect the lives of Americans and aid the work of law enforcement officials.’”
