A Chigaco-area scumbag is perforated, but alive today after he and an accomplice traveled to Gary, Indiana to rob the inaptly-named ‘Safe And Sound Social Club.’ The club may have looked like a soft target because it’s a popular hangout for senior citizens, but the two armed perps seem to have forgotten that Indiana is a ‘shall issue’ CCW state. Unlike the defenseless sheep of Chicagoland, there are armed sheepdogs among the flock in the Hoosier State. And when the Chi-town yoots started shooting up the joint, one of them had the effrontery to shoot back . . .
From ABC-7 News (Chicago):
Five people, including the suspected gunman, were shot at the Safe and Sound Social Club in Gary, Indiana. Officers responded to the members-only club Wednesday around 11:30 p.m. in the 2200 block of Broadway in Gary.
Police say the suspected gunman is a 23-year-old from Chicago. They believe his motive was to rob people at the senior citizens club…
“They had hoods on like this, you couldn’t see their face,” said witness Jessie Sturgis.
Sturgis says one gunman took off while the other pointed a gun at him and three other club patrons. Sturgis says he escaped through the front door. As he called the police from outside the club, he said he heard several shots from inside. Some of the club patrons hid in a utility closet.
E.C. Robinson, 65, a Gary resident, was shot but managed to defend himself and others with his own gun.
“He shot him twice, that is when E.C. started shooting back,” said one witness.
The suspect hid in the bathroom after he was shot until police came and took him into custody.
Sturgis said he hopes the shooting will send a message to the younger people who want to cause trouble from Chicago.
“We’re in Indiana, they [are] from Illinois, they don’t know people got permits to carry guns, so bang bang, that is what happened,” Sturgis said.
Four innocent people were hurt, but a mass robbery and shooting was stopped in its tracks by…a good guy with a gun. This shows why Indiana is a safer place to be a law-abiding citizen. And why Chicago is paradise only for the lawless and violent.
The mommy cult would have us believe that this kind of thing never happens, but it happens every week as it happened here. Bang, bang, that is what happened.
