When you want to see the moral retardation of the gun control cult in all its depravity, look at Chicago. Right now, the city council and mayor are doing their level best to make sure no one can run a legitimate gun store in the city. All the while the body count from armed gangs and thugs keeps mounting, Bob Owens takes a look at this farce
Thanks to absurdly restrictive gun control laws that ensured that only criminals and cops had handguns, Chicago has long been little more than “Mogadishu on Lake Michigan.” It is a bloody nightmare of a city when gunfire crackles through the air, day and night. Is not at all uncommon for 50 or more people to be shot in the course of a weekend. Indeed, this past weekend, more than 60 people were shot, 9 of them fatally .
But Illinois Democrats have been forced by the courts to finally begin issuing concealed carry permits so that citizens can defend themselves, and the first permits were issued earlier this year.
An unnamed serviceman put his legally concealed handgun to good use Friday night after a thug opened fire on a group of people because they dared move his drink off of their car when they wanted to leave.
No… I’m not kidding .
The military member and three others were leaving a party Friday night in the 11700 block of South Union Avenue in West Pullman, Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Hain said in Cook County Bond Court.
One of the victims noticed a cup of liquor on top of her vehicle and asked attendees of a party next door who it belonged to, Hain said.
When she removed it, Denzel A. Mickiel approached her, shouting obscenities and threatening her and her friends, according to Hain and court records.
Mickiel, 22, went into the residence, returned with a gun and began firing at the group, she said.
As Mickiel fired shots at the victims’ vehicle, the military member retrieved his gun and took cover near the vehicle’s front fender, according to Hain. Two unidentified males also shot at the group, she said.
The service member fired two shots and struck Mickiel twice, she said.
Mickiel is in critical condition, and the group that merely asked a drink be moved from their car are all going to be OK. That would not have been the case had the good guy not been armed. In fact, those people would likely be dead, and certainly the gun control cult would have used their deaths as reason to further disarm the law abiding. Will Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the City Council learn from this? Will they grasp that what they are doing in trying to make it impossible for people to legally attain firearms for self-defense is morally deficient? Likely not, after all it is not safety they are after, it is control, of people they are after. To them gun ownership is part of Individualism, which is a sin against their Collectivist ideology. Again, a good guy stops a violent attack with a legally carried firearm, and again, the morally retarded gun control cult will ignore it and continue to push for more
gun people control.
