Concealed Carry Stops Armed Robbery

Actually it stopped a crime spree. Would-be robber shot dead by victim | - 10/11/09 - Philadelphia News -
Police say it was the man's third robbery of the night. He forced the victim up against a vehicle along the street and demanded money. That's when shots rang out - but not from the alleged robber.
Concealed carry works.
As it turns out, the man who was being robbed had a license to carry a firearm, and shot the alleged robber.
Police expect no charges to be filed against the shooter, because self-defense is not just a human right; it is also your legal right.

Now carrying a concealed weapon does not make you invincible. It does alter the odds in your favor. Just like wearing a seat-belt while riding in a car. You can still be killed, but your chances are better. Being prepared for bad things, does not mean you will always prevail over those bad things. But if you don't plan or prepare, you won't have any chance.
