Defensive Gun Use News Stories
« on: August 11, 2016, 08:10:31 PM »
Thought I'd start a topic for news stories about defensive firearm use.  Here's a recent one from my State (DE):

https://doverpolice.org/2016/08/11/arrest-made-in-robbery-that-ended-with-exchange-of-gunfire-8-11-16/

The Dover Police Department arrested Riley Braswell (18) after attempting to rob two 22-year-old men on Wednesday afternoon.  At approximately 2:25PM, two males were walking on Ridgely Street, when approached by Riley Braswell.  Braswell displayed a handgun and demanded the victims turn over property.  The victims fought off Braswell, who then fired multiple times at the victims.  One of the victims was legally open-carrying a firearm and fired back at Braswell.  No one was injured during the exchange and Braswell was arrested without incident a short time later by police.  Braswell was committed to JTVCC (James T Vaughn Correctional Center) in default of $180,000 secured bond on the following charges:

-1st Degree Robbery (2x)
-Reckless Endangering 1st Degree (2x)
-Possession of Deadly Weapon During Commission of Felony
-Carry Concealed Deadly Weapon
-Possession of Firearm by Person Prohibited

Nice! I see stories like this every day. Of course you have to look for them; they don't get much national media coverage.

Baton Rouge, 7/16/16:

http://www.theadvocate.com/article_9192dc44-4ba5-11e6-b67c-476173ad47a2.html

"BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA ó A couple went to go pick up their belongings when Concepcion Vega, 33, began yelling at the man. When yelling didnít get the point across, Vega went inside and got a machete. He came out and began swinging it around violently. Well, thatís about enough of that. Fearing for his life, the man drew his handgun and shot twice. Neither shot landed but it was enough for Vega to retreat."

"Police said the woman was gathering belongings in her car when the suspect came up to her. Itís likely that he didnít know she was packing a pistol..."

I'm a fan of the Polite Society podcast.  They have a DGU section every week, and often discuss tactics and legality of the events, though they have the standard "not a lawyer" disclaimer attached.
