Guns are good if they protect Obama and his kids.  But you and your kids are not worth protecting.

From KENS 5 San Antonio.

A man is dead and another is recovering in the hospital after police say they were shot while trying to steal an SUV from outside a home in an affluent neighborhood.

San Antonio police said the shooter, who was visiting family at a home in the 600 block of Lightstone Drive in Stone Oak, heard the men breaking into his Toyota 4Runner around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The 25-year-old man stepped outside with a gun, confronted the men who were rifling through his vehicle and opened fire, according to a police report.

He later told police that he thought one of the men also had a gun.

Neighbors reported hearing five to eight gunshots, although the number of gunshots was taken out of the police report.

Officers said the shooter is not expected to face any charges since he was protecting his property.

One of the suspects, who was standing by the getaway car, drove off after getting shot but crashed into a parked car about a block away. He then rolled out into the lawn.

A homeowner near the crash said he went outside and tried to get the wounded man’s name, but all the man could say was “I feel like I’m dying.”

Officers and emergency responders tried to revive the 32-year-old man but could not.

The other man was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.

Later Tuesday morning, a neighbor condoned the actions that were taken to stop the suspected thieves.

“I fully agree with it. I spent 30 years in military; I’m familiar with firearms,” said David Oliver. “I think they have a right to intervene.”

From the Miami Herald.

A pair of would-be robbers were shot and killed by their victims in separate incidents in Hollywood and North Miami-Dade.

In Hollywood, a store clerk shot and killed one of two hooded robbers who broke into the store at an Exxon gas station at 5190 S. State Road 7 on Monday just before midnight. One of the attackers fired several times at the clerk, and the clerk returned fire, killing the gunman, said Sgt. Pablo Vanegas of the Hollywood Police Department.

“There were lots of rounds shot,” Vanegas said. “The clerk was a real cool cat.”

The second robber took off in a car, but police arrested him a few blocks away, Vanegas said.

Police have not yet released the names of the clerk or the dead attacker.

The other robber has been identified as 19-year-old Joshua Stewart. He faces charges of burglary and felony murder for his partner’s death, Vanegas said.

In North Miami-Dade, one man was killed after he and another man apparently broke into an occupied home at 850 NE 209th Ter. just after 11 p.m. Monday, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department. The 22-year-old intruder was killed after exchanging gunfire with a man inside the house.

The second intruder escaped, police said.

Police have not identified the man who was killed, or the 19-year-old who shot him.

Miami-Dade police are also investigating an unrelated drive-by shooting that killed a man on Northeast 90th Street near Northeast Second Avenue in El Portal around 4:30 p.m. Monday afternoon. Police have not released the name of the 27-year-old shooting victim.

HOUSTON — A couple of strangers came to the rescue when a man was robbed at gunpoint. Now, the victim wants to say thank you to the Good Samaritans.

Police believe the criminal who was canvassing a neighborhood in the 2500 block of Wichita near Hermann Park had no idea what he was in for when he picked his target.

The victim in this case had just walked back to his car from a bar around the corner.

Kevin Dorsey says he hadn’t even closed his car door Thursday night when a man wearing all black and a ski mask put a gun to his chest. The man took Dorsey’s wallet, cell phone and car keys.

After he was robbed, Dorsey began running down the street and says two men in a Mercedes asked him what had happened.

Dorsey told them and they not only caught up with the suspect, but they started shooting at him.

The suspect fired back. In the end, the two witnesses turned vigilantes won and took down the bad guy.

“I don’t believe in guns,” said Dorsey.[Perhaps you should rethink this belief.] “I don’t own a gun. I’m totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself.”

After the robber had been shot, police say he jumped over a fence and was attacked by a German Shepherd. That attack prevented him from getting away.

The suspect, identified as Christopher Hutchins, is being treated at Ben Taub Hospital. He’s expected to recover.

A naked intruder who was trying to choke a pet Rottweiler was shot by a homeowner in Miami Wednesday morning, police said.

The bizarre incident happened around 5 a.m. when the occupants of the home were awoken when they heard a commotion and dogs barking.

When the homeowner went to check out the noise, he confronted the suspect, who was completely naked and trying to choke one of the dogs, police said.

“He comes out and spots a person who is not only fighting with this dog but is naked fighting with this dog,” Miami Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno said.

The homeowner opened fire twice, hitting the suspect in the leg once. The homeowner held the man until the police arrived.

The intruder was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital where his condition was unknown. Police said he tried to bite the homeowners and police and workers at the hospital, and may be under the influence of drugs.

“For right now it does appear to be a justified shooting,” Moreno said. “This individual was acting irrational, fighting with the dog, and not only that, but at the point that the homeowner attempted to get this individual’s attention, he immediately jumped onto the owner and started fighting with him.”

Police said the suspect, who refused to give his identity, will be charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault, animal cruelty, resisting arrest with violence and lewd and lascivious behavior.
