Defensive Gun Use

  • A man exchanged gunfire with an armed robber Wednesday evening inside a West Garfield Park neighborhood church, leaving both men wounded.

    A 57-year-old man was sitting in a the church at 8:09 p.m. in the 4400 block of West Maypole when a 27-year-old man walked in and announced a robbery, according to Chicago Police.

    Maypole Avenue Church of Christ is located at 4400 W. Maypole.

    The two men then started shooting at each other, police said. The older man was struck in the left arm and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition. The robber was shot multiple times in the chest and was in critical condition at Stroger Hospital.

    The 57-year-old legally owned his gun, police said.
We're betting the 27-year-old has an extensive record, a high SSL score and didn't own his gun legally. But hey, let's ban guns from the law abiding.

Oh, you know what will happen next, the church will post a "Gun Free Zone" sign on it's doors...or Madigan will introduce a statute making churches off limits for CCW.

Certified law breaker here. I carry my CCW pistol everywhere there isn’t a metal detector to stop me, but a place of worship is one of the places where CCWs are supposed to disarm. None of the smarty farty newspapers have pointed THAT out.

I’m still going to carry everywhere that isn’t an airport because I’m my first line of defense against aggression against me.

Nice shot placement, CCW Guy. I hope you have a speedy recovery!

Ready + Willing + Able = center mass/multiple hits


Thinks he's ready + knows he's willing + turns out he's not so able = trip to the morgue

Math.

It's essential.

Good shooting 57- year old, multiple chest hits should get the job done. Now lets hope the doctors are not as good. He, if he lives will get free medical care a slap on the wrist and free pizza. Yea take the guns from the law-abiding it's not right when a piece of shit gets shot trying to get money for collage.

Most churches close "early," unless there is some sort
of group function. Part of it is security, part of it is due
to secular influences on the priest. You know how hard
it is to have a conversation with God in a crowded bar?

Yes, don't forget the Cardinal has made all churches " gun free zones", as if bad people really care. When will the liberal stupid class wake up and get smart about this. When will the judges stop giving probation for carrying an illegal handgun on the city streets? Illinois is now concealed carry state and if you are caught on the street with a illegal handgun it should be prison, flat out prison, no probation. But, oh, that would make Preckwinkle mad and Dart upset that too many black and brown men are in jail.

Thought churches were places of sanctuary. How dare they. That said nice shooting, multiple times in chest. Maybe the CPD should hire this guy to train new hires in fine art of combat shooting. At least this guy has had real world experience unlike most of instructors at academy.

sniffle ... sniffle Don't ya just love happy endings.

btw, I'd say that's some pretty darn good shot placement considering he was in a running gun battle.
btw 2, What kind of lowlife scumbag tries to pull an Armed Robbery in a friggen Church? Un-fucking-believable!
btw 3, I hope the old guy's wounded arm heals quickly with no lasting after effects.

A police woman working security in Colorado stopped a Church shooting several years back. She killed the offender. And the Cwb blog has mention of a concealed carry guy stopping a 3 against 1 robbery beat down on the 700 block of North Clark a few days back.

Perhaps because it's totally false. It's up to each individual church to decide.

You're not a lawbreaker, but you sure as hell are ignorant. The genesis of the case that led to Illinois being ordered to allow CCW was a robbery and beating of two women in a church. When some legislators tried to make churches one of the prohibited areas for CCW, that fact was pointed out to them.

There is no prohibition against carrying in churches in Illinois.

There’s 2.5 million stories in Rahm’s Feral Sanctuary City.
This was another.
And it ain’t even summer yet.

We need stricter laws on religious observation.
Time to ban churches open after 5:00 pm mass with collection plates.

At our church?

We, the upright and
law abiding carry guns.

Repelling "boarders" from the
peaceful ship of worship is a duty.

"...Bitterly clinging to their guns
and religion."

...Said a callow less-than-a-man
who ran and hid when his "pastor's"
ravings were revealed.

"Craven" is the word that comes
to mind but we ain't gonna re-plow
that road.

Self Defense and Christianity
ARE NOT mutually exclusive...
Regardless of what the God-less,
corrosive, traitorous and subversive
Progressives and their perpetual
racial grievance mongering fellow
travelers in iniquity and evil-doing
have to say.

We direct your attention to the book of Wisdom...

That would be Ecclesiastes to you media trollers
and Rahm Emanuel propeller-head operatives lurking
here for "intel" on the sayings/thinking/doings
of The Police so that you can maintain the "advantage"
that really only exists in the fever swamps of your minds.

Of note is Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Y'all marinate on that.

Meanwhile, we're smiling to ourselves
about when even Jesus Christ got tired
of B.S. and whipped a bunch of hard heads
up out of the Temple...

Heh... It WAS indeed his FATHER'S HOUSE.

Y'all can marinate on that some more...

Many in the perpetually aggrieved communities posit
that common sense self defense is mean and racist.

Nothing more upsetting to them than an upright man
"actin' like he a jury of one" and contesting, if not
wholly setting straight an outrage committed by a
member of the perpetually aggrieved community.

It gives their cause some pause when the upright
are compelled by the actions of one who believes
in so much that just isn't so...

"Imma TAKE/DO whut I wants!"
...Unfortunately is the politically/socially
codified de facto setting here in Chicago.

Anyone who doesn't agree or actually resists
is branded an unfeeling some-kind-of-phobe
if not flat-out derided as a "Racist."

Meanwhile?

Police Like You Have No Friends.

Look.
Laugh.
Leave.

Protecting yourselves is not "wrong,"
nor is it "racist."

Do not let YOUR reason become subservient to THEIR feelings.

Their feelings drive and maintain a dangerous,
destructive, divisive, truly hate-filled and vicious narrative.

Meanwhile?
The Police are the problem here in Chicago.

Right?

Have there been any CCW uses in places marked as off-limits? Because I tend to agree with the guy who carries everywhere there aren't metal detectors. I'm wondering how hard the long arm of the law comes down on CCWers carrying in off-limits locations when REAL bad guys show up with guns, threaten lives, and get ventilated.

My guess? There aren't going to be any prosecutions of CCWers under these circumstances, because this would set the stage for test cases that could call the no guns signs into question. Thoughts?

Ya know... the liberal mindset is that if that man from the church didn't have a gun there would probably be only one man wounded. Go figure.
