A Good Chicago Gal With A Gun

Woman defies the odds in robbery attempt in Chicago.

Not by driving off a robber…:

A man in Hyde Park was in for a surprise when the woman he was trying to rob pulled out a gun and fired.

Just before 6:30 p.m. Saturday near 56th and Dorchester, Chicago police say the woman took out the gun and shot at the man.

Police say she has a valid concealed carry license.

The suspect drove off in a dark-colored SUV.

…although I love a happy ending.

But no, she beat the odds by getting her permit in Chicago in the first place.

  1. These stories are motivating, but I object to Real American’s relying on them to “prove” the worth of the 2nd amendment to the general public, or the un-American left.

    I don’t need to prove shit to anyone. Our founders gave their lives and treasure to secure my rights, all of them.

    I don’t care how many people use a firearm to defend themselves any more than I care how many use them criminally. Shit happens in a free country of 325 million. Can’t take it? Leave.

    There is no number of incidents, good or bad, that has any effect on my right to possess firearms, or my determination to protect that right against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

  2. A person can argue using logic and reason, called “dialectic,” or using passion and emotion, called “rhetoric.”

    When a gun control advocate is inflaming a soccer mom’s fears of mass shooting (rhetoric), I might be able to calm her with talk about Constitutional rights (dialectic) but I wouldn’t bet on it. I’m more likely to succeed by showing her she could protect her children if she had her own gun like this woman did, just like any mother would do (rhetoric).

    Both methods have their place.

  3. I get what you’re saying Joe, but I’m not swayed. The soccer mom doesn’t have any more or less influence on my (our) Constitutional rights than Nord-Bence; that equaling “none”.

    I’m happy to recount incidents where the handy presence of a pistol saved lives, just as long as it’s understood that they’re interesting stories that have no bearing on whether I get to carry a pistol or not.

    Today, anyone with the meagerest level of skills can build a working, formidable weapon from scratch; rifles and pistols. As I noted, people already have tons of ammunition stockpiled. So there’s no way to effectively disarm us through incremental restrictions or confiscatory taxes and fees. There’s one way to disarm America; repeal the 2nd amendment, then come and get them. That may be feasible sometime in the future, but not in any of our lifetimes.

    μολὼν λαβέ is beautiful as much for the resolve it conveys as for it’s eloquent succinctness. Yeah, I know I’m a real hard case, but like differing forms of argument, there’s a place for guys like me, too. 😉
