As reported, a Kansas City, Kansas convenience store clerk reportedly used his gun to stop an armed robber.

Police say that a robber, who was armed with a rifle, entered a store on the 5900 block of Leavenworth Road just after midnight.  The clerk is said to have spotted the robber and fired one shot in self defense, causing the robber to flee.  The clerk, who had a valid concealed carry permit, was unharmed, and the robber is being sought, according to police.

Once again, concealed carry has allowed a law abiding citizen to stop a violent criminal. Rather than being shot for not having enough money (or perhaps just because the robber felt like harming someone that day), this armed clerk was able to save himself.  Simply put, armed self defense works.
