In the first reported incident of an Illinois Concealed Carry Licensee firing shots, a Chicago man fired shots at two armed attackers. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the armed attackers approached the man on his property and pointed a gun at him. The man responded by pulling his own legal firearm and fired shots in self defense. The armed attackers fled. The Chicago Police are saying that they will not file charges on the legally armed citizen and are looking for the alleged attackers to file charges against.
Carrying a Concealed Firearm may have saved this legally armed citizen.
