Even in New York, Self-defense Works

Would-be victim fires back at his assailants -- amNY.com Of course you have to be "properly licensed" to defend yourself in your own home in New York.
The 35-year-old homeowner, who owns a check-cashing business in the city, was armed -- carrying his licensed Glock 9-mm pistol.

When one of the assailants fired at the man, he fired back. No one was hit by the gunfire on Oakford Street before the pair fled.
One goblin was arrested a few streets over, after a search by police.
[He] was charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree attempted robbery, first-degree criminal use of a firearm and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, according to police.
The other bad guy is still on the run.

Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0 (well, one did get away). Self-defense is a human right, and even though the bad guys fired guns first, the good guy was able to defend himself. Self-defense just plain works.
