CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — 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 putting their safety into their own hands, and successfully defending themselves against the bad guys.
Thugs take note; millions of Americans refuse to be victims.
