Guns in the hands of honest people

From KXAS in Dallas/Fort Worth...

A woman found evidence on her porch that someone might have broken into her house when she let her dogs out for a walk early Wednesday morning. The woman's granddaughter also said she heard noises from inside the house.

Susan Gaylord Buxton, 66, retrieved her .38 caliber handgun and searched her house. She found a man hiding in a closet, covered by a coat.

The man, 22-year-old Christopher Lessner, lunged for the gun, and, police said, Buxton shot him once in the leg. She fired a second shot, which missed, according to police.

From WCAU in Philadelphia...

Police said Thomas Morganstern, 60, was sleeping in an upstairs bedroom of his Roselle home when two men entered his home early Thursday morning. Morganstern, who is an avid hunter, grabbed a handgun and chased the men downstairs. Police said the men fired on Morganstern in the living room area and he shot back.

Morganstern was not injured and he called police and reported the home invasion and shooting.

Police searched the area near the South Woodward Avenue home in New Castle County and found Cleveland Richardson, 28, of Wilmington, 100 feet away, behind a detached garage. Richardson was taken to Christiana Hospital with a gunshot to the abdomen area.

Stephen Norwood, 26, whose last known address identified him as a Wilmington resident, was found around 8:45 a.m. across the street and hidden under bushes. He had died from his injuries.

Liberals like Sarah Brady would rather these innocent citizens had died waiting for the police to decide whether they would bother to respond or not.

Guns Save Lives: True Stories of Americans Defending Their Lives With Firearms
by Robert A. Waters

“This is not a dull, scholarly study, nor is it a book of arguments. Robert Waters has just done a fine job of reporting. He tracked down 14 people who had been forced to defend their lives, their families or their employees and businesses with a firearm. He interviewed them and others involved in the cases, including police. Then, like a good storyteller, he tells you what happened, blow by blow. These are exciting stories, some of them terrifying.” — Charley Reese
