An armed thug attempting to rob a neighborhood store in Chicago was shot and killed Sunday by a customer who had a concealed carry license, Chicago police said.
I can’t tell you the name of the store because all the signs are in Spanish. I took French in High School instead of Spanish. I’ve been to Mexico about 100 times, to East LA about 4,000 times and to France: Twice… but I digress.
The point here is why does the left-wing media keep these stories from you? The answer is, of course, “duh” – it doesn’t fit their narrative.
A customer fatally shot an armed man trying to rob a business Saturday night in the Gage Park neighborhood, police said.
A man walked into a business that included a currency exchange about 7 p.m. and pulled out a gun, threatened the employee behind the counter and announced a robbery, Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.
A customer in the store withdrew his own weapon and fired at the suspect, Guglielmi said. Other customers were in the business at the time, but authorities could not immediately say how many.
Okay, pretty straight forward – no mention of race, so at least the robber wasn’t a white dude. But listen to what police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi just HAD to say:
“We’re looking at it as a self-defense issue at this point… it’s a slippery slope when it comes to the question of whether citizens who are licensed to carry guns should intervene in dangerous situations, if at all,” Guglielmi said.
“You have situations like this,” he said, referring to the foiled Chicago robbery in which no one else was hurt. “And you have situations that end tragically. The department is not going to advocate for what people should or shouldn’t do.”
Okay, fine. Let the guy rob the poor Latino store owner and just fire away at anyone who happens to be nearby…
Stupidity in Chicago. I’m shocked.
