More Anti Gun Posturing
- Hernandez, a 44-year-old mother of four, also was a clerk at a Loop loan store. She was working Friday when her ex-boyfriend walked in around 2:30 p.m. and shot her twice before turning the gun on himself, Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said at AmeriCash Loans in the 100 block of West Van Buren Street.
“This does not look like a robbery but a domestic murder-suicide,” McCarthy told reporters.
- McCarthy said the shooter had a concealed carry permit, but it was not known if he was registered to carry the gun he used in the shooting.
Really? And this was important why? Because the I-Team just had a report about how Concealed Carry license holders are a surprisingly law abiding bunch:
- Crimes committed by concealed-carry gun owners are rare in Illinois, which has been issuing concealed weapons permits for less than two years.
When the first concealed-carry permit was issued in the state on December 18, 2013, there were predictions that Illinois would turn into the Wild West.
That, of course, hasn't happened. Friday's apparent murder-suicide involving a licensed concealed weapon owner is unusual.
There are now more than 120,000 concealed-carry licensees in Illinois and it is extremely rare to hear about a permit holder being involved in any violent crime, much less a murder. Friday's was the first of 2015 according to police officials, if not the first at all here since Illinois passed concealed carry.
Whoa whoa whoa - we can't have citizens thinking that Concealed Carry is a good thing. Better get McStreetlights out there telling everyone how bad guns are, especially concealed guns and the people who carry them. This was a pointless bit of information released solely to smear citizens who choose to exercise their Rights. Unless we're going to see McRahm'sTool start releasing information on all the west side and south side shooters of late? That'd be interesting.
