A woman was standing outside her house when a man she knew approached her and assaulted her. He continued his crime spree by entering the house and assaulting a second victim, whom he also knew. The first woman was able to retrieve a firearm from inside the house, fire upon the man in self-defense and stop the attack. Both the man and the first victim, seriously injured, were taken to the hospital. The man was arrested, and the women were found to have been acting in self-defense and thus were not charged. Both women would recover. (Wavy.com, Virginia Beach, Va., 09/08/19)

A Harrisburg, Pa., district judge was in her home on a Friday morning when her abusive husband arrived, for whom she had a protective order. His behavior gave the judge reason to believe her life was threatened, forcing her to defend herself with a firearm. The man was injured, but expected to recover from the single gunshot wound.
