A concealed-carry permit holder was approached in the southwest side of Chicago by a man carrying a gun one Monday afternoon. Upon walking into an apartment alley, the would-be mugger approached the permit-holder and produced a handgun. At that point, the intended victim produced his own firearm and shot his assailant. The man later died of his injuries, while the permit-holder escaped unscathed. (Fox 32, Chicago, Ill., 6/2/19)

After climbing through a window of the Birmingham, Ala., apartment of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Kent, a wild-eyed intruder held the couple's two-year-old son hostage until Kent grabbed his 7.65 Mauser rifle and killed the intruder with a single-shot. The child was treated for a cut on the neck. (The Birmingham News, Birmingham, Ala.)
