The tension between rival teenagers escalated as groups of supporters from both sides began making threats over social media website Facebook. The dispute erupted into an all-out brawl when opposing groups met in person. One boy struck a female several times in the face. When another girl tried to help her, the same male knocked her to the ground and began kicking her. Another male pulled out a BB gun and pointed it at the female victims. A concealed-carry license holder nearby pulled his own firearm after witnessing the assault. He ordered the teens to break it up, which caused the group to flee. No shots were fired. Both males involved were later arrested and charged with multiple counts. One of the females involved was also charged. (Boston Herald, Dorchester, Mass., 1/1/14)

Around 9:30 p.m., a man returning a video to a movie rental kiosk outside of a McDonald's restuarant was confronted by a suspected carjacker. The man returning the video was carrying a concealed firearm at the time of the attack, and drew his gun in self-defense. He fired, killing the suspect. There were no other injuries reported. (Houston Chronicle, Houston, Texas, 9/12/13)

April 1980:
Two men, one carrying a crowbar, entered a Norwich, N.Y., motorcycle shop, approached the owner's son, and asked to see an item from a wall display. When owner Loren Frink walked into the room and saw his son being beaten with the crowbar, he drew his pistol and fired. The would-be robbers fled unharmed but soon were arrested. (The Sun-Bulletin, Binghamton, N.Y.)
