    This will be a serious injustice, if this elderly couple are charged with having a handgun in Chicago. Because they chose to break this immoral law, they live today.

    This was posted earlier. I think it was a good shoot, I just wish his aim had been a little better.

    They do indeed. And that underscores the serious benefit of defensive, life-saving tools in a way that no Bloomberg, Schumer, Feinstein or Daly can denigrate.

    Similar to the Gratia-Hupp report from the Luby's Cafe massacre, this might well have a huge impact alongside this year's 2A case about Chicago's right to suppress firearms ownership/carrying.

    Chicago PD says they won't press charges against the homeowner.

    Add this one to the Chicago PD and Iraq Veteran who was killed earlier in the week and, all of a sudden, the black community in the City is beginning to wise up to the fact that the Democratic machine has essentially disarmed them.
