On Monday July 25th at about 6am a Chicago man, licensed to carry a concealed firearm in Illinois, was being robbed and shot one of the robbery suspects on the West side of Chicago. The licensee happens to be a civilian employee of the Chicago police.
The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the robbery suspect was shot in the neck and is 31 years old. The tribune did not state his condition. Also reported by the Tribune is that he was accompanied by a 17 year old boy who fled, but was apprehended.
Concealed carry saves lives.

Tomorrow, Wednesday July 20, 2016 at 11:00 am- several groups including The Freedom First International, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Violence interrupters, The Brady Campaign of Illinois will conduct a Protest Rally outside of Chucks Gun Shop and Riverdale City Hall.
According to a press release they shall be “calling for the local (south side) Chicago community to come together … in a effort to balance Justice for the Community.” However this is yet another scheme to attempt to force Chucks Gun Shop out of business.
Chucks operates completely legal and however sadly some patrons choose to break the law with legally purchased firearms. This is not the fault of Chucks Gun Shop nor of the NRA as some claim.
Chucks Gun Shop is located at: 14310 S Indiana Ave, Riverdale, IL 60827
The Riverdale Town Hall is located at: 157 W 144th St, Riverdale, IL 60827
