CHICAGO, IL — In a city infamous for strict gun control, one man showed the world not all residents are unarmed, and he was willing to defend his home and himself, when the crap hit the fan.
A man attempted to break into the homeowner’s residence with a crowbar.
He really should have been better-prepared.
As the Chicago Sun Times reports:
A 44-year-old man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body at 10:54 p.m. as he was trying to break into a home in the 4500 block of South St. Lawrence, according to Chicago Police.
The homeowner told investigators that he opened fire after the man forced his way into the home with a crowbar, police said. The suspect then jumped into a vehicle, which fled to Mercy Hospital. The man was expected to be transferred in critical condition to Stroger Hospital.
The homeowner, a 60-year-old man, has a valid FOID card and concealed carry permit, police said. Charges were pending against the home invader early Sunday.
It’s encouraging to hear some good news from Chicago, isn’t it?
Chicago isn’t the most dangerous city in the United States, nor is it the murder capital of the world, but it absolutely is one of the most dangerous cities, and its draconian gun laws don’t help one bit.
However, as you can see — Chicago residents aren’t all helpless. With a little luck, this will prevent other thugs from getting ideas into their head about crowbarring their way into other homes.
