As reported, a concealed weapons permit holder used his handgun to stop a pair of armed robbers:

Police say that the concealed weapons permit holder was in his car when two robbers approached, opened the door to his car, pointed a gun at him, and attempted to commit a robbery.  The armed would-be victim is said to have fired his gun in self defense, hitting one robber and causing the other to flee.  One suspect was taken to the hospital in serious condition, according to news reports.  Police are searching for the second suspect.

Once again, concealed carry has allowed a law abiding person who was going about their peaceful business to defend themselves from unprovoked and violent attack.  Had this man not been armed, he could have been harmed by the robber for not having enough money to steal, or perhaps just because the robber felt like harming someone that day.  Make no mistake about it – robbery is a violent crime against a person’s body and life, not just a taking of their property. As such, robbery victims are legally and morally entitled to defend themselves with deadly force.
