    Good on him!!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    That was very well done. I hope that the gentlemen does not get in trouble for defending his and his wife’s life. It is time for Chicago to wake up!

    While it isnt mentioned in the article, to me it is an outrage that an Army veteran not be allowed to retain/own handguns. That if he had prior military weapons or souvenirs, he must give them up?

    To me, that is bs, as well as Chicago's current gun law re: handguns. Didnt DC just lose that court battle? Why cant that decision be applied to Chicago by a saavy law firm?

    I hope they dont charge him. That would be a real crime.

    Regarding the 2A, nothing works in Chicago.

    I applaud this homeowner; he probably saved two lives early that morning.
    Fox News wil jump on this one if he is charged, but the other (marxist) news outlets will ingore it.
    Another dirtbag taking a dirtnap is also a good thing.

    Isn't some prominent national politician from Chicago? What's his name again? I don't know. I didn't vote for him.

    The old guy, as an Army vet, probably Mozambiqued the bad-guy. No more breaking in and harassing people for that perp.
