Gun Defense Stories

Maybe Peggy Noonan's depression (see 2 posts below) will be lifted (it made me feel better) after she reads the following 2 stories carried on the Civilian Gun Self-Defense blog:

Would-Be Robber Dies After Being Shot By ClerkPolice Investigating Circumstances

Surrounding ShootingA would-be robber is dead after being shot by a convenience store clerk during an attempted robbery, police say.

Police said the man, 21-year-old Cortney Rivers, was acting suspicious while wandering around the Food Mart on the 9900 block Garland Road.

Police said Rivers then walked up to the counter and pulled a gun.The clerk also pulled out a gun and shot one round at Rivers, striking him in the head.

Rivers was transported to Baylor Medical Center in critical condition where he later died.

Police are conducting interviews and investigating the shooting to verify if it was justified.

And this one:

From the November 1, 2005 Macon Telegraph:
Police will not charge a Macon man who shot a burglary suspect in the arm Friday night on Houston Avenue, Macon police said.


Hubert O'Neal, 39, was shot twice in the arm and charged with burglary, according to a police report. He told police he was shot during a drive-by shooting, the report stated.

The shooter, Robert Nichols, 60, told police that he saw a man in his fenced-in yard shortly before midnight Friday, the report said. Nichols told police that he followed the man to the side of the house and the man came at him, the report stated. Nichols said he shot six bullets at the man, who jumped the fence and ran away, the report stated.

Nichols said his television had been taken from his house, and he discovered it covered in blood on the outside of the fence, the report stated. Macon police detective Jim MacDonald said because Nichols had a reason to fear for his life and was in a confined area of his home, he will not be charged in the shooting.

That poor television.
