Bill Canada, owner of Meadow's Pharmacy, had just opened the drug store moments before an armed man wearing a mask entered and demanded money. Canada backed away from the robber, but the robber advanced toward him. Canada pulled out his gun and fired a single shot. The suspect's wounds proved fatal. Canada was not injured during the robbery. (Pine Bluff Commercial, Dumas, AR, 10/19/13)

Gregory Lindsey, 29, was at home when a group of six youths tried breaking into his home. Lindsey's teenage son was downstairs doing his homework at the time of the attempted break-in. Lindsey heard the suspects trying to force their way inside, so he retrieved his semi automatic .22 and confronted them. Upon seeing the firearm, the group scattered. No one was injured and no shots were fired during the incident. (Clickondetroit.com, Detroit, Mich., 3/31/14)

From The Armed Citizen® Archives

June 1967: A gang of five cornered Louis Rivezo, a Brooklyn, N.Y., undertaker, as he left his home. Slamming him against a fence, they robbed him of $150 and mauled him. Rivezo fired three shots from a revolver, for which he had a permit. One fell dead and the gang scattered. (Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Journal)
