This is one of those cases where IMHO it is perfectly acceptable to give the robbers what they want. You see, when someone sticks a gun in your face and threatens your life with it, what they obviously want is a face full of lead, because that's what they should be getting. They had this guy's car, his wallet, his ID; they had everything they needed to go back later and rob his house, terrorize him, or even kill him at their leisure. They have his ID, they know where he lives, and they have the keys to the house. They have already demonstrated a propensity for using violence to get what they want, so there is little doubt they wouldn't continue this trend.
Well, one cannot continue the circle, and the other is going to be facing some serious time. That CHL holder just saved the good people of Texas a lot of time, money, and police manpower. Because of his quick actions, there's one crook that won't get a chance to graduate to the "until they kill someone" school; and another that will most likely be in jail too long for it to make a difference - I believe Texas has the law where if you are committing a crime and someone (anyone) gets killed, you can be charged with murder.
Good shooting, Mr. CHL holder!
