Levitttown, PA

LEVITTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A pizza shop customer armed with a gun shot and killed one robber and injured another as they tried to hold up the Pennsylvania restaurant, according to police.
The shooting happened late Tuesday night at Porfirio's Pizza and Pasta, located in a shopping plaza in Levittown, about 25 miles northeast of Philadelphia.

The customer took out a gun and shot both men after they allegedly pistol-whipped him, Middletown Police Chief Joe Bartorilla told reporters.
One suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The second suspect was taken to a hospital. His condition was not immediately available.
Remember this wisdom from the gun controllers: you will never draw a gun fast enough on someone whose gun is already out.

Coweta County, GA

Just as Elaine Stiehl, 78, was about to take her nap, she heard a noise coming from the front of her home, Coweta County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Col. James Yarbrough told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Stiehl grabbed her pistol, loaded it and stepped into the hallway to find two men, who allegedly broke into her home, police said.
Yarbrough said the men, Thomas Allen Linder and John Michael O’Neal, saw the gun, ran out of the home and got into an SUV driven by Anne Renee Dearman. The trio sped off, but police later found them heading north on I-85, Yarbrough said. Two guns, one stolen from out of state, power tools and fur coats were found in the car.
