    [DGU] The 'Defensive Gun Use' Thread

    There used to be threads here to highlight good examples of DGU... so here's one to get back on that track. It's a good thread to have, good to see when firearms are used in a positive way (good guys > bad guys).

    Whether it be everyday civilian gun use, or law enforcement stopping a dangerous person... please highlight those here!

    I'll get it started

    The writing on this one is a bit confusing... it says one person broke in, then three... and says he wrestled the gun from the intruder, then that he retrieved his own gun. Not sure the article is very well written, but still turns out being good guy > bad guy.

    This one has a dumb twist. Alleged robber gets shot, tries to play the victim afterward.

    Son shoots robber to protect mom - Story | WAGA

    "I was taking my grandson to doctor's appointment and had one foot in the car when suddenly a car was blocking my driveway," the woman said.

    The woman doesn't want to be identified but told FOX 5 News, the driver immediately got out and rushed to her.

    "He said 'Whose car is this? Give me the keys," the woman said.

    Fulton County Police have identified the robber as Trystan Delk.

    "I started screaming so loud that my son who was inside at the time heard me and came out to help," the woman said.

    Police said the woman's son fired shots at Delk, hitting him multiple times.

    "He still managed to drive himself to a nearby fire station where he tried to play the victim," the woman said. "He told them that he was the victim of an interstate shooting."
    Next one... are internet cafes still a thing in America?

    The photo of the guy that got away... looks like a 30rd Glock mag.

    Security guard kills 2 armed robbers at Internet cafe

    Two of three armed robbers who stormed into a Southside internet cafe late Sunday night were shot and killed by a security guard while a third robber and a getaway driver got away, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

    Police responding to the Spin City Sweepstakes internet cafe on Beach Boulevard near Southside Boulevard about 11:30 p.m. found two robbers shot. Officers say one person with a gunshot wound died at the scene and the other died later at an area hospital.

    Not just highlight the stories here, but send them off, weekly maybe, to our legislators and network affiliates too. Maybe a steady 'drip-drip-drip' of these stories will get through to them.

    Motorcycle rider who shot, killed driver on I-5 won't be charged | KOMO

    Man boxes in female motorcyclist on I-5 and stops her.

    The Prosecutor's Office says Jones [the male] initiated the fight.
    At one point, the woman head-butted Jones, and he drove her head into the jersey barrier before taking her to the ground.
    The woman shot him in the chest when he tried to climb on top of her, the Prosecutor's Office says.
    No charges for woman.

    Officials: Guard shoots just-released inmate after attack | Fox News

    This is six weeks ago, but remarkable for the...timing:

    PHILADELPHIA – Authorities say a prison guard leaving work for the day has shot and critically injured a just-released inmate who attacked the officer in a parking lot near the prison.

    The Philadelphia Department of Prisons says 26-year-old Jamal Bennett attacked the 66-year-old Currran-Fromhold Correctional facility guard around 11 p.m. Friday.

    The guard fired his personal weapon, striking Bennett in the chest. Bennett was in critical condition at Jefferson Torresdale Hospital but was expected to survive.

    I realize this isn't how they meant it... but was expected to survive caught me as top notch reporting.

    In Houston, an apparently unarmed defender is shot at several times by an attacker, but manages to wrestle for gun and shoot the attacker.

    Clayton Cramer collected nearly 5,000 news articles on defensive gun usage and then totted up some stats. One of the things that popped out was that defenders turn criminal assailant's guns on the assailant FAR FAR more often than a defender's gun is used against the defender. To the tune of 227 to 11.
