In spite of the city’s notorious opposition to civilian handgun ownership, some of the most picture-perfect firearm self-defense stories these days come to us from Chicago. Take for example the time a 63-year-old Chicago man kneecapped an attacker who threatened him with a fake gun. This past New Year’s Eve, a 29-year-old Chicago concealed carrier shot two assailants who jumped out of a car and announced their intent to rob him.

This morning, just before 6:00 a.m., another young licensed concealed carrier defended herself from a would-be robber. The unidentified woman, age 25, was standing at a bus stop with her legally carried handgun accessibly concealed.

There, a 19-year-old man, displaying his illegally carried handgun, attempted to rob her, but the woman, defending herself, shot him in the neck, which sent him running. Shortly afterward, he was located a few blocks down the street and transported to a hospital where he later died.

What more could anyone hope for when it comes to the safety of a wife, daughter, or sister? We applaud this young lady for being prepared and fighting back instead of ending up on the wrong side of another Chicago crime statistic.
