The media coverage is even a bit positive. Woman With Concealed Carry License Who Shot Robber Called A ‘Hero’.
Residents are praising the 25 year-old woman, with a concealed carry license, who shot and killed a man who was trying to rob her at a bus stop.
She shot him in the neck, but then he grabbed her gun and ran off. Cops found him a short distance away. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Don’t expect this to change the minds of any of the Chicago gun-haters.
But self-defense is a human-right, and Chicago may even be recognizing it as a legal right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
(HeyJackass! shows 4 fatal and 14 non-fatal self-defense shootings in 2018 in Chicago, though the stats are not limited it to cases only involving a firearm.)
