"With This Gun Protecting Me, This Piece of Iron, I Feel Safer."

A convenience store clerk, robbed twice, had his own gun the third time a robber walked in.

The story is one that I mentioned a while back, but it's written less about the circumstances of this particular use of armed self-defense than it is a wider discussion of the increase in such cases since NC instituted a "castle doctrine" law that eases restrictions on gun use in self-defense cases. Amazingly for an MSM outlet, the reporters actually got representatives of both gun rights and gun control organizations to comment on the issue, and the law enforcement officer they interviewed addressed the issue in an intelligent, balanced manner, not reflexively taking the gun control side.

Good, balanced story. Wish the MSM would write more of these on the armed self-defense issue.
