Portland is the city where young people go to retire, and apparently break into houses to shower:
A man who broke into a house in Portland, Oregon, called police — afraid the homeowner may have a gun.
The suspect, Timothy James Chapek, was in the bathroom taking a shower when the homeowner returned to the house Monday night, Portland police said in a statement.

LOL only in Portland. Since I spent some time there last summer, I have been anxiously awating each new episode of Portlandia.
The dream of the 90′s is alive in Portland.

Glide, OR – Wyckoff said he fired a round into the bear’s forehead, but the animal kept coming and climbed on top of him. From beneath, Wyckoff said, he got off three more rounds.
Then he tucked the gun beneath the bear’s chin. But it quit. Wyckoff, left-handed, said he had accidentally released the ammunition clip.

ugh clip… Operator fail! Glad he made it.. that could have been a lot worse if his buddies weren’t there.
The best part of the article is “His .45 is covered with teeth marks but still works.” .. I bet he’ll hold on to that gun forever.
Gresham, OR – Police say Roger Witter, 48, was in an AT&T store at 533 Northwest Division Street in Gresham when two men stole multiple iPhones. Witter witnessed the theft and, instead of waiting for police, he took off after the men, firing at their getaway car.
He told police he intended to “shoot out the tires,” but it is unclear where the rounds ended up, though police said he fired in a direct line with the Gresham City Hall Max station and the adjacent Park & Ride.

Not very good discretion on behalf of the CCW holder.
It’s lucky there was no serious collateral damage. That said, if he would have successfully shot out the tires, then proceeded to execute the thieves in the middle of the street I definitely wouldn’t have shed any tears.
Reminds me of a quote:
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
