Troublemakers in Houston probably thought they wouldn’t have a problem breaking into cars parked at a gun range after working hours. But two employees, who were staying at the range overnight because of recent burglaries in the area, had other ideas. After hearing the cars drive up around midnight, the employees grabbed a couple of guns and went outside to investigate. The armed workers saw several thugs scoping out cars and persuaded two of the suspects to give up and stand still. The others turned to flee, but once they got in their car one fired at the range employees, one of whom returned fire with an AR-15, striking one of the hooligans. (abc13.com, Houston, TX, 1/17/17)

A group of criminals thought advertising a dog for sale on social media was the perfect set-up for a robbery, until the tables turned. When the two prospective buyers arrived at the pet store to buy the dog, a man came out and led them around the building, where several more men were waiting for them. One of the victims, who had a licensed handgun, drew his pistol and pointed it at the robbers, who then fled the scene. (Tyler Morning Telegraph, Tyler, TX, 3/17/16)

A Norton Township, Mich., pool hall owner, Eddie Morgan, sleeping in quarters at the rear of his establishment, was awakened in the early morning hours by pounding noises. Arming himself with a shotgun, he went to investigate and surprised two men who had knocked a lock off the front door.
