Wrong Victim

  • Last night readers reported hearing shots fired near Winthrop & Winona at 11:30pm, with the police scanner reporting that a man had been shot in the leg and shoulder. This morning the news broke that the man had died.

    But this isn't the all-too-common Uptown gang-versus-gang nonsense. According to eyewitnesses and news reports this morning, it was an attempted robbery in which the victims handed over their wallets and phones, but balked when the robber tried to take the car from which they were unloading furniture. One of the would-be victims had a gun and used it.
A Concealed Carry permit holder successfully, properly and safely defended his life and that of his friend in the face of an armed gang banger who left this mortal world shortly following this encounter.

Now give this guy his gun back - soon, not a year later like that other guy - and someone slip him a box of ammo.

The guy with the fatal case of lead poisoning was out on parole for....Armed Robbery. Gee, if they'd just made him serve his entire sentence, he'd still be alive.

Setting a bad example, shooting and killing criminal, who was probably also a minority trying to turn his life around.

How fast is the Flaming Tutu spinning?
Very likely looking like the rings around Saturn.

We agree with SCC...
The whole "Let's hold a lawfully used handgun
hostage for the sake of Fuckery and inconvenience"
is foolish and dangerous.

It should be no more than a credential verification,
a name check and a, "Here's your weapon back, have
a blessed day."

Full Stop.

The more shootings of this type occur the more thugs will think twice about robbing someone. And if they can't think, then the thugs will be late for their next birthday.

Hmmm, and where was the media on this one?

A pro-gun story will never be seen on TV - especially in Chicago.

Good shootin' for the "almost victim". Let others learn from his courage.

I am glad the intended victims survived.

I hope that their lives and livelihoods also survive.

Commanders are dragging their feet returning weapons! The exempts think they are immune from lawsuit and try and put it off on Detectives to return weapons.

Don't forget the States attorney can also release the weapon after the court proceeding are completed.

This does not fit the "Agenda" of the Radical Leftists Democrats. Remember, only the Government should be armed. And that is why you heard little of this incident on the news. Eventually the car, or what would be left of it would be found and returned. The loss of Property does not warrant the loss of human life! Did the Shooter look in the eyes of the Robber, and see the art, poetry and love he was capable of? Another example of too many guns in our society! Where were the Chicago Values, that we have imported from Wilmmette? Shameful, just shameful! Baby"G"

How else was this hopeless minority who suffered the school to prison pipeline supposed to score some new wheels, and a new iphone? SMDH.
Guess when the shooting isn't by a white cop or during a very public and documented robbery it cannot be spun as racism

A lifetime of victims and their families will not be traumatized now. Think about that. We all handle these things like another day at the office. The rest of the people in this world are actually scarred by these occurrences, not to mention the family members that are additionally effected.

Countless lives will not be trashed by this animal. Nice shooting sir. I hope you are all right with it. You should be. You survived. Thank you. Thank you for standing up.

Well done citizen. Legally ARMED citizen, that is :-)
(Oh...and chalk up another one for the Parole Board assholes)

ps: This dead mutt will wind up on the list of Mikey Bloomberg's anti-2A, Mayors Against...some bullshit, as another person who 'died due to handgun violence. I'm not kidding. Those jaggoffs include gangbangers shot dead by police and even TERRORISTS! The the oldest Boston Bomber brother, the one who died in the shootout with Police is on their stupid fucking list.

Maybe the Illinois Carry.Com or the ISRA folks should start a regional "Lending Library" for law abiding, FOID/CCW crime victims to use a "loaner", just until they get their own expensive firearm back?

Plus, it would have the added advantage of really pissing off Tom "Hair Gel" Dart, Tony Preckwinkie and her sensible shoes and Tiny Dancer.

Time to start carrying cheap Charter Arms or Taurus, Use once and assume you won't see it again. Burner if you will.
Charter Arms made the .38 that killed John Lennon and George Wallace. They work. No need for expensive pistols. They are close up devices anyway.

Tried to open that link and got riddled with pop-ups like John Dillinger outside The Biograph. No harm done though and I'm glad to hear about a shooting with a happy ending for a change.
