Self-defense in The People’s Republic of Chicago

I know this is late. I probably need to update my news feeds. Concealed carry holder kills man with gun.

A concealed-carry holder shot and killed someone who approached him with a gun May 27 in Little Village on the Southwest Side.

He shot the guy in the head, and it took him 3 days to die.

Self-defense is a human-right, and even in Chicago, it might be your legal right. (Though when this article was published, the investigation was still underway.)

Even in The People’s Republic of Chicago, Self-defense Works

Don’t expect the Gun-hating Left to admit that. Concealed carry holder shoots back, wounds 2 gunmen in Chicago.

Two guys walk up to a car and start shooting. They hit an innocent bystander first.

The license holder was seated in a vehicle about 2:15 p.m. when at least two men came up and started shooting, Chicago police said.

The gunfire hit a 22-year-old man standing outside the man’s car in the 6200 block of South Justine, police said. The concealed carry holder stepped out of the vehicle, took out his own weapon and shot two men.

A Victory for Gun Owners in the PA Supreme Court

JusticePeople are calling this “major,” but however you slice it, it is a win. MONUMENTAL Decision from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court regarding whether the Open or Conceal Carrying of a Firearm is Reasonable Suspicion of a Crime.

Cops can no longer stop someone just because they are open carrying or concealing a weapon. Both activities are legal, and absent some other specific reason to believe a law is being broken, they can’t harass people.

The Court then went on to agree with the primary argument that I made in the Amicus Brief that just as the police cannot stop an individual who is driving to see if he/she is licensed, police cannot stop an individual with a firearm (without more) to see if he/she is licensed to carry.

That’s my favorite bit of the argument, because it is the most common-sense.

So, one step forward in Pennsylvania. Hat tip to PA Gun Blog, and From the Barrel of a Gun.

Self-defense Is Legal in Ohio

JusticeAnd concealed carry works. Gunman cleared in fatal Canton gas station shooting.

Attorney Jeff Jakmides said his client acted in self-defense when he was attacked and punched by a man in the BP parking lot on Tuscarawas Street W near the Interstate 77 exit ramp. The man killed also wielded a knife that was later found at the scene by police, Jakmides said.

“He was in lawful possession of his sidearm,” Jakmides said of his client. “He has a concealed carry permit.”

Jay H. Schweitzer, 31, of Canton, died following the shooting on Oct. 6.

There were recently changes in Ohio law to dial back the often over-zealous prosecutors – who hate self-defense.

Texas Passes Carry Bill In the Event of a Disaster

The Left is not pleased. Texas Passes Bill to Let People Open Carry Firearms in the Wake of Natural Disasters.

hen society’s infrastructure has broken down, there’s nothing like a firearm to make sure people stay in line. An armed society is a polite society and all that good stuff.

The Left (and the Progressive Right) are not happy of course.

“We have someone (armed with a hand gun) in every building”

In deep blue Washington? WA school district arms staff to deter campus shootings.

“We have someone (armed with a hand gun) in every building”, says Toppenish School District Superintendent, John Cerna. “In some buildings we have multiple people…and nobody knows who they are except me.”

In the event of a school shooter, the first thing you do is call for people with guns to come to the campus. This short-circuits a lot of wait time.

Concealed Carry, Self-defense in Philadelphia

Even in a deep blue city like Philadelphia, self-defense works. Police: Man with gun permit shoots attacker in West Philly.

A guy was behaving ‘erratically,’ and appeared to be under the influence.

Witnesses said the older man, who was a local resident and appeared to be under the influence, was punching cars and people, and at one point used a rock to shatter the rear window of a Mitsubishi SUV, Small said.

At that point he was confronted by the younger man and allegedly responded by punching him in the face, Small said. The younger man responded by shooting him in the leg.

Cops were on the way, and witnessed the shooting. The CCW permit holder is cooperating with the cops.
