You’re 80 years old and you still own this deli between Cleveland and Lakewood. The morning rush is over and you’re getting ready for the lunch crowd. Two men come in. Their faces are covered by hooded sweatshirts. One of them has a gun in his hand and he tries to push his way past you to get behind the counter. The robber tells you to open the cash drawer. You draw your gun and fire. Both robbers duck, and then they run away.
You call police. You had another robbery attempt a few weeks ago, and now you carry every day. The police say your shot missed your attacker.
You hear someone at your back door. A second later, the back door to your home crashes in. You walk toward the back door and see two young men with guns in their hands. You’re armed. You move, draw, and shoot. The two robbers run out the back door the way they came.
Now you call police. The officers arrive in minutes because other neighbors had already called the police to report the armed teens going from backyard to backyard.
It is three in the afternoon. You and your co-workers are at EZ Pawn shop. You’re behind the counter. A young man walks up to the cash register. He points a gun at you and demands the cash. You’re armed. You open the cash drawer and then draw your gun. You shoot your attacker. He drops his gun and runs. You let him go and call police.
The police say your attacker used a stolen gun to threaten you.
You’re at home on a Saturday night when you hear a knock at your door. You recognize the two people outside, and open the door to talk to them. That is when the two push their way inside. The man has a knife in his hand. The woman has a baseball bat. They threaten you and demand money. You have your gun. You draw and shoot your attackers until they run outside. You stay inside and you call the police.
The police find your wounded attackers down the block. They are taken to the hospital and charged with aggravated burglary and felony assault.
