Concealed Carry Shoot In Chicago………………

Man Shot During Quarrel Outside Jewel-Osco In West Elsdon

Police said a 54-year-old man was leaving the store when he got into a fight with a 32-year-old man in the parking lot. The older man then pulled a gun and shot the younger man in the head.

The victim was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where at last check, he was in serious condition, police said. The man who shot – who police said has a Firearm Owners Identification Card a concealed carry license – was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in good condition with an injury to the hand.

“I guess the guy – he tried to bite him in his finger or something, and he pulled out the gun and shot him in the face,” said Luis Chavez, who talked with a witness who was leaving the Jewel-Osco store at the time.

I tooled around the interwebs the day after this shooting and there was a lot of high fiving and back slapping that an older gentleman in Chicago was able to protect himself from an attack.

Lots and lots of mindless speculation that this was a carjacking or a robbery or the such.

Well, the shooter has ALLEGEDLY been charged with aggravated battery with a fire arm.

What ALLEGEDLY started the confrontation?


Two people literally tried to go through the same door at the same time and bumped into each other.

There is no video of the actual confrontation outside or of the shooting so it is only the witness statements that provide the details.

From the time the two made first contact, to the shooting, was 60 seconds.

One minute.

Again, there are only witness statements to describe the confrontation, but this shooting by a valid CCL might be an example of “the old West shootout” that CCL opposers in Illinois claimed would happen.  This is one of the few times that a CCL holder won’t be able to make a self defense claim.

This story is several years old, but is still germane:

Almost nothing is known about dozens of concealed carry shootings in Illinois. Why?



Reason # 821,456,012 That I Don’t Care To Ever Go To Disney Again (Or use Their Products)……………

Disney Division Hosting Drag Queen Story Hour for Employees’ Children

A division of the Walt Disney Co. is hosting a drag queen story hour event aimed at the children of employees, with the intention of celebrating the “gender fluidity of childhood” while providing kids with “unabashedly queer role models,” according to screenshots of internal emails seen by Breitbart News.

Drag Queen Story Hours have become increasingly popular throughout the world, having started with drag queens reading to small groups of children at public libraries. The readings are now sparking protests by parents who object to their children being indoctrinated into transgender and gender non-conforming ideology.

As Breitbart News reported, a Milwaukee County children’s court judge who served as CEO of a foundation promoting Drag Queen Story Hours was arrested earlier this year on tentative charges of possession of child pornography.
