Outgoing Fire

The first officially recorded legal self-defense case involving a civilian with a legal handgun and carry permit in Chicago in several decades took place over this past weekend.

Real American 1.  Scum 0.

The incident happened about 2:40 a.m. on the 5400 block of West Van Buren Street, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.

The man was walking from his garage to the front of his home when two males in hoodies appeared in a gangway between his home and the neighbor’s home, Sullivan said.

One of the two men pulled a handgun from his waistband and pointed at the man who took out his own gun and managed to fire several times at the males, Sullivan said.

The males fled the area without being struck and the shooting did not result in any property damage, police said.

The Real American wasn’t charged with anything, and probably won’t be.

But this even is important far beyond that little gangway between those two houses.  For the first time, the common schnook in Chicago has exercised his right – and moral duty – to defend himself, his family, his neighborhood, his city and his society from crime.  After decades of having to sit and take the incoming gunfire like it’s just another variety of Lake Michigan gale, and to watch a generation of (mostly minority) kids get ravaged by gang bangers who’ve turned the city’s less fashionable zip codes into their private shoot-em-up arcade with real guns, Chicago’s Real Americans have joined the fight to take their streets back without the city treating them like “the real problem”.

To many more!

  1. Had this incident occurred in Minnesota, would the result have been the same? Perhaps. Minnesota is a Mandatory Retreat state. The prosecutor might have argued the homeowner had an opportunity to retreat to the safety of the garage instead of shooting. The homeowner could have defended that he could not safely retreat. The jury would make the final decision whether the homeowner goes home or goes to prison – after a year of litigation and a week of trial and five figures worth of attorney’s fees.

    Stand Your Ground would eliminate the requirement to hide in the garage. It would give the homeowner the legal right to defend himself in his own driveway, a right Minnesotans do not have today.

  2. I googled the address, and it’s a decent looking neighborhood of older brick apartments and bungalows. The kind of neighborhood where my granddad lived until my aunt was born, really. Brick makes a nice backstop for self-defense actions.

    Hopefully the thugs talk with some of their buddies and get some religion on this….
