A 22-year-old Chicago man learned the hard way that you shouldn’t bring a knife to a gun fight (unless, maybe, it’s attached to your gun). It was about 10:34 p.m., and the young man was walking in the Little Village neighborhood on the West Side. According to the Chicago Sun Times, he was stopped by two men who presented a handgun and demanded that he hand over his property.
The young man then pulled out a knife, which caused one of the attackers to fire the gun, striking him in the leg. The suspects both ran away, and the victim was transported to Mount Sinai hospital in good condition, according to police.
And that’s why you don’t bring a knife to a gunfight – although if Chicago lawmakers weren’t hell-bent on making it difficult for law-abiding citizens to be legally armed, these events might have never taken place to begin with.
