Rochester, New York, market owner Ali Amireh still carries a
bullet lodged next to his heart after being shot in the chest during
a 1992 robbery. He was not about to take another one. When two
criminals walked into his store and opened fire on Amireh, he drew
his own legally owned .38 and shot back. The armed robber was
struck once, while the other suspect fled. The incident was the
third in Rochester that month where citizens defended themselves.
Just two weeks earlier, a restaurant owner shot a bandit during an
attemped robbery. In another incident, two city employees being
held up in a parking lot pulled their legally carried firearms and
shot and killed their assailant. No charges were filed against the
crime victims in any of those incidents.
