Female Concealed Carrier In Chicago Shoots At Would-be Robber

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Thank God that Illinois passed a concealed carry law a few years ago, or the woman involved in this attempted robbery could be another victim.

Details are extremely slim, but from what we gather, it’s a pretty ‘basic’ case of self-defense.

A woman was near 56th and Dorchester when a man in an SUV attempted to rob her. Reports do not say whether or not the suspect had a weapon, but it did say that the woman is a concealed carry permit holder and drew her firearm and shot at the suspect.

He took off in the SUV, probably wishing that concealed carry wasn’t a thing that citizens do.

Surprise, buddy. Armed citizens are out there, even in Chicago, and they’re refusing to be your victim.
