Entering his law office in Bangor, Maine, attorney Peter A.
Anderson, an NRA Life member, found a burglar hiding behind his
desk. Anderson drew his licensed .357 Mag. revolver, ordered the
intruder to stay where he was, and called police. The man, who was
armed with a knife, was a suspect in other burglaries.
