Um, well in this case fortunately no physical harm took place...so a concealed weapon would not have saved a life. I'm guessing that the victim pulling out a weapon vs. 2 or 3 hardened criminals that may have had guns could have made it a much worse situation. Most people even with significant fire arms training don't magically become Dirty Harry or Rambo. (on a side note something seems fishy about this whole story)
