December Long, a female clerk at a Toledo convenience store, was shot and wounded by a rampaging thug. However, she was able to return fire with her own gun. There is no doubt that having a handgun saved her life.

The perpetrator was a violent ex-con who had recently been released from prison. He was living in a nearby half-way house.
