Another case of armed criminal disarmed by citizen
Howard Nemerov discusses it here. Gun wielding crook invades house, homeowner wrestles with him for gun, crook shoots self, homeowner's girlfriend stabs crook, crook flees.
The antis have the narrative of armed citizen being disarmed by criminal, but it's all other way around. The victim has the advantage of not being drug-addled or drunk, having twice the intellect and judgment of the aggressor, and of standing on the defensive.
having twice the intellect and judgment of the aggressor
LOL! Now this is what I call PC, perfectly correct.

I completely agree. However, I sure would like to see some hard statistics on "armed criminal disarmed by citizen" vs. "armed citizen disarmed by criminal" so that I can have something to cite other than anecdotal occurrences (no matter how compelling any individual case may be). Anyone know of any studies underway in that regard?

Victims using a criminal's gun against him is so common that we actually added a sorting label for it. See http://www.claytoncramer.com/gundefenseblog/labels/criminal%2527s%2520gun%2520taken%2520away%2520and%2520used%2520against%2520him.html

I've done it myself but not in a place of business.
it was a home invasion and when this guy came in the door with a big knife my mom ran into the bathroom and headed for my bedroom and assembled my shotgun then threw a couple shells into it and gave him a big surprise. After the police talked to me for half the night while my arm was cuffed to a table in an interview room they patted me on the back and returned my weapon
