A Question for the New York Times

First watch this 14 second video. An armed man tries to rob a store only to find a very small woman with a very big ax and she ain't afraid of using it.

The woman, an immigrant from Turkey, did exactly what any good American would do -- she defended herself against an armed thug. Her family has owned this store for four years and it has been held up four times already.

The New York Times ran the story at their website. They even included the video you see here. What I am curious about is whether they would have run this story with video if the woman had a licensed handgun that scared away the robber instead of an ax. I suspect the story would have never seen the light of day in that case.
