The Brady's were right

The argument that by brandishing a gun, it will only be turned against you, is often repeated.

Well, the Brady's et. al. were right.

Victim turns tables, and gun, on would-be robber
The victim of a would-be robber turned the tables on him and shot him twice with his own gun.

County police say it happened around 8:30 Sunday night on West Avenue in Holloway Terrace. They say 17-year-old Diamere Brady of Wilmington used a handgun to try to rob a 21-year-old man. The 21-year-old was able to get the gun away from the teen and shoot him twice during a struggle.

The 21-year-old turned the gun over to police, who moments later got a report of a teen being shot. Brady underwent emergency surgery at Christiana Hospital. He will be charged with attempted robbery and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony.
I don't think that is what they meant, though. Bonus points for the criminal's name of Brady.
