APPEARS IN Gun Laws

The Tribune, Bismarck, ND, 6/17/88

Thursday, September 1, 1988

With his wife screaming at an intruder hiding in their Bismarck, N. Dak., home, Hal Peterson grabbed an unloaded revolver from a gun cabinet and ordered the man out. When the stranger lunged at him, Peterson slapped his hand away with the gun barrel, then stepped back and cocked his pistol. The man fled. Police captured a suspect a short distance away, recovering a $5,000 ring belonging to Peterson's wife and charging the individual, who had been released from jail the day before, with two felony counts of burglary.
