Self-defense legal in St Louis

STLtoday - Police: Pizza deliverman killed would-be robber I don't know why, but I get the distinct impression that the reporter/editors of this story are not happy about self-defense.

Concealed carry is relatively new to St Louis. Even after the State of Missouri passed the law, the county that contains St. Louis resisted. Fortunately, Missouri recognizes out-of-state licenses, so law-abiding citizens (like this pizza delivery guy) don't have to be helpless victims.
The driver, who works for the Domino's franchise nearby in University City, delivered an order at 7 p.m. Thursday to a phony address in the 6500 block of Julian Avenue, where two armed men approached the driver on foot and announced a robbery. The driver pulled his own pistol and fired shots, striking one of the men.
Police admit it appears that he did nothing wrong. Self-defense is a human right, after all.

One goblin is dead, and police arrested another person, but hadn't tied him directly to this crime at the time the article was printed.

It appears that the score is: Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0.
