Defensive gun use in Mattapan

A store owner successfully stopped an armed robber in Mattapan today.  Well done, sir. 

An interesting point here is that business owners are one of the privileged few in Boston who are granted an unrestricted license to carry (in other words, a license to carry).  Any regular citizen who isn't politically connected, doesn't own a business, or is not a doctor or lawyer gets a restricted LTC, which prohibits concealed carry. 

Therefore most of us here are prevented from having the means to defend ourselves against armed attackers.  Why do Mayor Menino and Commissioner Davis think businessmens' lives are more valuable than everyone else's?
