According to White County, Tenn., Sheriff Oddie Shoupe, a man was
leaving a home he'd just burglarized when he encountered the
homeowner, Keith Gurtley, on the front porch. The sheriff explained,
"This burglar coming out of the house asked Mr. Gurtley, 'Can I help
you?' and Mr. Gurtley said, 'Yes, you're in my house, bud.'" That's
when the intruder reached for the stolen pistol in his waistband.
"Don't do it," Gurtley said, drawing his 9mm. When the suspect
failed to comply, Gurtley, who holds a concealed-carry permit, shot
and killed him. "I'm afraid that if Mr. Gurtley had not been armed,
he would be the one dead," the sheriff said, adding he's seen an
increase in residents with carry permits. "They're tired of having
to be afraid of all the criminals out there."
