I'd love to read about a shopkeeper who empties a magazine into the robber before the robber shoots someone.

A Robbery in Skokie, by a man with a gun! That cannot be right, we have a law against that! What is wrong with these criminals, no respect for the LAW! I just can't imagine this happening in such a nice place, with 911 and good police. Boy, if we had some more of those gun-control laws, now that would do the trick. Those Robbers would have to obey those laws... Right?
