Bar chart style with ListPlot

I'm working with some discrete probability functions and plotting them using 
ListPlot.  Given the nature of the function, I believe its clearest to 
represent the values using bars rather than points.  I know there's a BarChart 
function, but it isn't as easy to use (e.g. you can't just give it a list of 
x, y coordinates and you can't easily have overlaying datasets, they sit next 
to each other).

I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this problem and/or has any 
suggestions on how to solve it.  For example, are there options I can set that 
will give me the desired behavior?

Thanks for your time in this matter,
