As reported, a man in Atlanta, Georgia used his handgun to stop a pair of robbers on Christmas Eve:

Police say that a man was attacked on Jackson Street SE by a pair of robbers.  Acting in self defense, the would-be robbery victim fired his handgun, striking and fatally wounding one of the robbers.  A 21-year-old surviving suspect was reportedly taken into custody on charges that included armed robbery.

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.
