Armed Homeowner Versus Armed Thug

Bad guy shoots at good guys and misses with 2 shotgun blasts. Good guy shoots back and hits his target twice. Prowling teen gets two shots to chest from homeowner � Knoxville News Sentinel
When Stevens, pistol in hand, walked outside into the driveway with his wife, the teen confronted them with a shotgun, [Knox County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Martha] Dooley said.

“He shot twice at the couple,” Dooley said. “He never got in the house. The homeowner shot twice at the suspect.”
There is one thing I don't understand. There was a question about a carry permit. This guy wasn't carrying a concealed weapon in public - he was on his own property carrying a gun (probably in his hand). What does a carry permit have to do with anything?

The injured bad guy ran away but was found by police. They took him to a local hospital.

Self-defense is a human right, and a guy shooting at me would get me to think self-defense. In Tennessee, self-defense is also your legal right.
