Doing a good deed can help save a life and that’s exactly what one man did when he saw a fight occurring between two brothers. Early one evening, a Good Samaritan was returning home from work when he saw a fight between two brothers nearby. He immediately reported the incident to law enforcement. However, when he realized the severity of the fight and that one of the brothers had stabbed the other, he retrieved his handgun and held the assailant until police arrived. The armed brother was charged with first-degree battery. (KATV.com, Austin, AR, 4/6/17)

June 1960
Sixteen-year-old John Rubel was with his grandmother in the living quarters over her Chicago tavern when they heard glass break in a window below. John raced downstairs, grabbed the cal. .32 revolver behind the bar, and pointed it at a man climbing in the window. “You’re too young to use that gun,” said the burglar, and John fired, the burglar tumbling out the window and fleeing the scene. Police soon arrested a suspect with a bullet wound in his shoulder. (Chicago Daily Tribune, Chicago, IL)
