Defensive Gun Use of the Day: More Chicago CCW Success


By Brandon via

Ever since Illinois became the last state in the country to allow concealed carry, we’ve seen reports of legally-armed citizens defending themselves against armed criminals. Here is another one of those stories that happened late Thursday. A 24-year-old man, legally carrying a concealed firearm, was walking down the street with a woman when two suspects approached them with a handgun and announced that they were being robbed . . .

As a response, the 24-year-old drew his firearm, as did one of the armed thugs. Both men fired. The permit holder was shot in the leg, while the suspect was shot in the chest.

Both were taken to the same hospital where the permit holder is in stable condition. The suspect, however, is in critical condition and, if he makes it through his injuries, will be facing numerous charges.

There is no word on the second suspect, who apparently took off once bullets started to fly.

Here’s to legally armed citizens taking their safety into their own hands, and successfully defending themselves against the bad guys.

Thugs take note: millions of Americans refuse to be victims. Even in Illinois.

    Hope the leg wound heals completely. The perp? Not so much.

    1. avatar Mark Lloyd says:

      I hope he grows paraplegic legs, poops in a bag and remains a living visible example of how victimizing folks isn’t a good idea!

      1. avatar Mark says:

        Nah, too much money to incarcerate a healthy prisoner let alone one that needs round the clock care at tax payers expense. I do agree with you on him needing a bag. Only the bag should be black vinyl with a full length zipper and handles on the end.

    Yep this is the one I mentioned from a news report-oddly(that’s a joke!) never saw another mention-don’t wanna’ give uppity colored folk any ideas about moving off the plantationLOL

      Second City Cop’s blog picked it up, but it only seems to appear on one website other than the Scum Times.

    “Ever since Illinois became the last state in the country to allow concealed carry…”

    Until New Jersey and Hawaii are removed from the union we need to stop using this line.

      Yeah, at least our state has a proper shall-issue law.

      It’s so great being able to finally carry.

    Good shooting, defender. Now get that lady armed and trained! Too bad she didn’t also draw and nail the second attacker.

  5. avatar Galtha58 says:

    How did this happen. Isnt’ it against the law for bad guys to have guns ? /sarc off

    1. avatar Intenserider says:

      Good one!

  6. avatar Gunr says:

    I heard the sheriff found the other guy in some bushes with 32 bullet holes in him. He said it was the worse case of suicide he’d ever seen!

    1. avatar L,John says:

      LOL. And the cops only found 37 of the other 100 bullets fired at the bastards. Shoot until the threat is over and then keep shooting because “it’s the only way to be sure “.

      1. avatar Adub says:

        I know they teach us to shoot to stop the threat, but any time I do a mag dump with my XDM 9mm (19+1), I get bored after ten or twelve rounds. Seriously, I almost check my watch.

        20 rounds is WORK.

        1. avatar LarryinTX says:

          I’ve discovered that with my ARs. With just a 20-rd mag, I find myself wondering when the damn thing is gonna run dry.

  7. avatar BPCoop19 says:

    It pays to carry a tourniquet just as much as a gun. Hope he pulls through.

    1. avatar FedUp says:

      Most of us have belts on if we’re wearing holsters.

  8. avatar J says:

    Good job. Maybe thugs will think twice before robbing someone.

  9. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    Maybe Jesse Jackson can lead the rally since he lives so close

    1. avatar Former Water Walker says:

      Down with hope-up with dopes! Dirk shoutout of the day…

  10. avatar Tominator says:

    Wonder who practiced more?

    BTW, Chicago is it’s own country WITHIN the boundaries of The State of Illinois! Us southerners finally are getting some attention!

    1. avatar KC in NorCal says:

      Couldn’t be the legal concealed carrier. Center mass hits either after being shot or while being shot at. Clearly another untrained yahoo with a concealed weapon permit. I’m sure the robbers have invested a lot of money into ammo, gear and training.

      1. avatar LarryinTX says:

        Yeah, a clean miss, considering that of course he was shooting for an arm or a leg, right? I bet the perp couldn’t tell you what caliber gun he was shooting, much less its make, model, or capacity.

  11. avatar Aaron says:

    This story simply cannot be true, because lefty thought leaders state good guys with guns never stop bad guys with guns /s

  12. avatar Kevin says:

    “There is going to be blood running in the streets” is how the anti crowd was crying to the media about us finally being able to defend ourselves. I guess in hopes of scaring everyone.

    Well, they were right. The blood of bad guys is running in the streets. Thanks goodness.

  13. avatar joe says:

    This happened in Englewood which is one of the most violent neighborhoods in Chicago. Considering the amount of black on black crime in the area, I really hope people see this and we end up with an increase in ccw within the black community. RIP Otis. You done good.

  14. avatar js says:

    Sheesh. They weren’t approached by two SUSPECTS. Muggers, teens, men, maybe, but NOT “SUSPECTS”. The accused are “suspects”. The perps are PERPS.
