When a man entered Lisa’s Beer and Wine with a gun around 9 p.m. and demanded money, the store clerk complied. He handed over small bills from the cash register, but the robber was not satisfied and ordered the clerk to open the safe. He then ordered the clerk to kneel on the ground while he took cigarettes from the store shelves. That is when the store clerk took action. He drew a firearm and fired, striking the robber in the hand. The robber dropped his weapon and fled the scene with cash. The store clerk remained unharmed. (Dallas News, Dallas, Texas, 4/22/14)

A 58-year-old woman, who had been walking her dog behind an elementary school around 9 p.m., told police she was threatened by two men who wanted to abduct her. She told police that one of the men was carrying a baseball bat and the other one said, “You’re coming with us.” The woman then pulled a handgun from her pocket and told them, “I have this, and I’m not afraid to use it.” She told police they ran into a wooded area after she displayed the gun. Police reportedly were unable to locate the suspects. (Lancaster Eagle-Gazette, Lancaster, Pa., 8/28/2014)
