    If that was the scenario that happened...it would be a good thing.

    Oh...goodie......you finally found one.......now you just have to find 1,499,999 more...since Americans use guns to stop violent criminal attack 1,500,000 times a year...according to bill clinton and barak obama.......

    And while you wheel out the exceptions.....here are some actual facts about Americans.....4.7 million of them carrying guns in 1997 to 15.7 million in 2017, carrying guns for self defense....

    We went from 200 million guns in private hands in the 1990s and 4.7 million people carrying guns for self defense in 1997...to close to 400 million guns in private hands and over 15.7 million people carrying guns for self defense in 2017...guess what happened...


    -- gun murder down 49%
    --gun crime down 75%
    --violent crime down 72%

    Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware

    Compared with 1993, the peak of U.S. gun homicides, the firearm homicide rate was 49% lower in 2010, and there were fewer deaths, even though the nation’s population grew. The victimization rate for other violent crimes with a firearm—assaults, robberies and sex crimes—was 75% lower in 2011 than in 1993. Violent non-fatal crime victimization overall (with or without a firearm) also is down markedly (72%) over two decades.

    I'm addressing your OP.
    The correct answer is "Yes, but equally there could have been more people dead or injured".

    A man standing at a bus stop is recovering at home after being wounded by a stray bullet during a shootout between a shop owner and an armed robber on the South Side, according to police.

    The shop owner, who has a valid concealed carry license, was closing his cell phone store for the night about 7 p.m. Saturday in the 3300 block of West 79th Street in the Ashburn neighborhood when someone with a gun approached and tried to rob him at gun point, police said.

    The shop owner, who was with several employees, pulled out his gun, and the two began shooting at each other, police said.

    During the exchange, a 27-year-old man at a bus stop across the street was shot in the chest, police said. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he was treated and later released. The robber fled and no one else was reported injured

    I would say one life could have been saved if a cc was in the same car. From what I read about the attack a cc would have reacted either during the first or post first.
