Here is a dramatic case where there is no way that this woman could have defended herself without a gun.
A 23-year-old woman with a concealed-carry permit defended herself against four armed men who attempted to carjack her last week on the South Side of Chicago.
The woman, who remains unidentified, was sitting in her car in the Calumet Heights neighborhood just after 2 a.m. on Wednesday near 89th Street and Kenwood Avenue when four men spilled out of a black sedan, according to a local CBS affiliate.
When one of the men attempted to open her car door while holding a gun, the woman shot the would-be carjacker in the head before running away from the car. . . .Jon Brown, “Chicago woman with concealed-carry license foils attempted carjacking by shooting man in head,” Fox News, November 27, 2022.
