Self-defense Is Legal in Chicago

JusticeI know I’m shocked. Police: ‘He was the victim,’ noting concealed carry license holder will not be charged in fatal shooting.

In an early morning shooting Friday, about 4:30 a.m., a 41-year-old concealed carry license holder drew his own weapon after being confronted with a gun near the intersection of State Street and Ida B. Wells Drive, police said. He was in his 2015 BMW when he was rear-ended by a 22-year-old man in a 2019 Volkswagen, according to officials.

When the man in the BMW got out to check the damage to his vehicle, police have said the other driver pulled a weapon, announced a carjacking, demanded the man’s keys and shoved the man into the BMW, where he was able to retrieve his own gun and fatally shoot the man in the head.

So it only took 2 days to determine that Self-defense is legal in Cook County. Amazing.
