This week from TheBlaze.com:
A Philadelphia college student put his firearm carry permit to good use Monday, as he shot it out with a would-be robber, hitting him twice.
Robert Eells, 21-year-old Temple University student, was in front of his off-campus house smoking a cigarette at 1:30 a.m. Monday when a group of teenagers approached him and asked for money. The main suspect -who is 15-years old- allegedly then attempted to rob Eells, who refused the demand for cash.
At that point, police say the suspect started shooting, and hit Eels in the stomach.
But Eels was able to fight back. He drew his own legal pistol and fired, hitting the attacker in the chest and leg.

Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
