TX: Homeowner and robber both shot: "A homeowner in northeast Houston was involved in a shootout Sunday evening with two suspects who were attempting to rob him for drugs, according to Houston police. Police said the homeowner, a known drug dealer, was in his home on Spaulding at Firnat when two suspects burst in around 9:30 p.m. The armed suspects were demanding drugs when the homeowner grabbed his gun and opened fire, hitting one of the suspects. The suspects returned fire before fleeing the scene, striking the homeowner. HPD found the injured suspect near Wayside and HFD transported him to the hospital for treatment. The homeowner was also taken to the hospital. Both are said to be in stable condition."

The police are under no legal obligation to protect you: "Opponents of the private ownership of firearms always claim there is no need for individuals to own a firearm for self-protection because the police are entrusted with that duty. Nothing could be further from the truth. Courts throughout these United States have consistently held that police have no legal duty to provide police protection to any individual citizen.”
