Maryland CCW holder...YES...I said "Maryland"...wins gunfight!
Just received this from a friend. I used to be a cop in PG County, Maryland. When I left several years ago, it was next to impossible for a law abiding citizen to get a CCW permit. I'm not sure how this guy managed. But, he did, and he used it effectively to save his life. Now, perhaps...just MAYBE...Maryland will get a clue and allow law abiding citizens a shot at self-defense.

A man who was being robbed in a shopping center parking lot shot and killed one of his attackers, police said Friday.
The incident occurred about 1:50 p.m. outside Cross Keys Village in Baltimore when a man was attacked while getting out of his car, Baltimore Police spokesman Officer Troy Harris said.
The man pulled out a gun and fired several shots at one of the attackers, who died a short time later at a local hospital. Two other attackers ran to a car and fled with another person.
The man, who was described by police as being in his 50s, was registered to carry a concealed weapon, police said.
"He was severely beaten but nothing life-threatening," Harris said.
