The Armed Citizen® May 18, 2015

While Ted Moss was walking his dogs in Grant Park one day, he saw a buck and a doe. The doe ran off, but the buck came out of the woods and attacked Rowdy, the man’s black Labrador. Moss, who has a concealed carry permit, fired his pistol to run the buck off. Rowdy was taken to a veterinarian for emergency surgery and was expected to recover. Though such deer attacks are rare, the Milwaukee County Parks Department advises people to keep dogs on leashes, especially during deer mating season. (WISN-TV, Milwaukee, WI, 11/6/14)

A Bridgeport, Conn., man was out walking his two dogs one evening when an unleashed dog left its owner’s yard and started attacking his pets. The man was able to get his dogs safely away from the attacking animal, but this caused the aggressive canine to turn its attention instead to him. A concealed-handgun-permit holder, the man drew his firearm and fired it once into the violent dog when it charged at him. The authorities said the pet owner will not be charged for the defensive use of his handgun. Police Chief Gary MacNamara said, “He was in fear for his dogs’ safety and his own safety. There is every indication that was clearly a self-defense situation.” (The Connecticut Post, Bridgeport, CT, 3/18/15)

August 1978
In Columbus, Ohio, a passenger grabbed taxi driver Charles Ross by the head, put a knife to his throat and demanded the day’s receipts. He wanted the cabby’s watch too, so Ross reached into his pocket as if to comply. Instead, he drew a .22-caliber handgun and fired it into the robber’s stomach. When the man slumped over in the back seat, Ross got out of the cab to call the police. On his return, the wounded man attacked him again, hitting him with a wine bottle. Ross fired again, and the robber fell to the street as the police cruiser pulled into view. (The Dispatch, Columbus, Ohio)
