I live in a pretty gun-friendly state, Tennessee. I'd guess the majority of states have these kinds of laws in place.

I am consistently seeing many of the same members here questioning or bashing an armed citizens actions based on a snippet of information an AFTER the responding LEO's found no cause to arrest them?
I have to wonder what well of omnipotent water many of them are drinking from?
A lot of the reason I advocate not using or drawing a firearm when you have better options is because of the current legal and political environment we live in today in the U.S.
This man in this story may very well have been of old age,disability,or smaller stature as to not be able to defend himself against an unarmed attacker,if that's the case use any means necessary to defend yourself. But just know that 12 other people may not see it that way if they can't plainly see you we're unable to defend yourself and were in fear for your life. Be ready to prove both... if u can't then come to terms with serving a few years in jail.
Even if you were in the right, liberal District Attorneys and prosecutors will have a field day with anything they can use to further a political anti-gun agenda. And if you think the liberal mainstream media can't force a trail/and or conviction on someone then you need to get your head out of the sand.
I'd personally take the black eye instead of risking a Agg. Assault conviction or even the lawyers fees to get out of one. But I am a 21 year old male of large stature, everybody reaches jeopardy at different stages of conflict. It would take more than a sucker punch for me to fear for my life,YMMV.
