You’re left at the mercy of others regarding your own defense. To me it’s clear cut this man should be allowed to carry a firearm, yet some would say he should live at the mercy of criminals. He should be allowed to carry a firearm without some bureaucrat passing judgment on him.
He was kidnapped at gunpoint, abducted from his place of business. Initially a judge denied his application for a permit. I guess the judge felt like the Brady Campaign and felt this individual should just give them what they want. In this case though, all these people want is his life. We all know how that ends.
