Philly Deli Owner Shoots, Kills Would-Be Robber

From NBC News:
Philadelphia Police say a corner deli owner killed a teenager during a robbery attempt in the Tacony section of Northeast Philadelphia tonight. 
A police spokeswoman says an unidentified 19-year-old tried to rob Anna's Deli at the corner of Princeton Avenue and Jackson Street just after 6 p.m. 
Police say the teen walked in, pointed a gun at Anna Jukic and demanded money. 
"The clerk screams and the store owner, the husband, comes from the rear of the store with his weapon," said Police Chief Inspector Scott Small. Police say the suspect exchanged fire with the store owner John Jukic, 55, and was shot once in the chest. An emergency services medic pronounced him dead at the scene just after 6:20 p.m. Jukic wasn’t hurt. . . . .

Apparently, even when you're successful - as in Australia - the gun ban people are not capable of leaving "well enough" alone. I recently saw an Austrailian gun banner (an associate of Rebecca Peters) on an Australian TV station ranting on and on about limiting "sportsmen" (target shooters & hunters) to "single shot weapons" (ONLY long guns, of course). I'm not making this up! You STILL had to keep the "single shot" weapon under lock and key when not actually engaging in your hobby. She actually was joking with the admiring news folks (Australian CNN?) about the the level of skill required using a single shot - as if this were a BLESSING for the benighted "sportsmen"! She also suggested that in this civilized country (Australia, of course) perhaps we should change our hobbies to something more "socially acceptable". I have to say this again "I'm NOT making this up!"
What does this have to do with the Philly Deli story? Thank God his store is in the US and NOT Australia!
