Not Me, Not Mine, Not Today

A man with a concealed carry license shot an armed man who tried to stick him up late Wednesday morning on the Southwest Side, Chicago police said. Shortly after 11:30 a.m., the victim was standing outside his vehicle in the 5300 block of South Pulaski Road when two men approached and demanded his car keys, police said.

Instead of handing over his keys, the victim shot one of the men in the groin area. The other man took off, but he was caught a short time later, police said.

The other robber, whose exact age is unknown, was arrested. Charges are pending against both, police said. A weapon was recovered.
You wanna be safe in Barack's Chiraq... you better be strapped...
On March 10, 2017, Breitbart News reported that concealed carry rose nearly 50 percent in Chicago in 2016, compared to 2015. Moreover, the number of Chicagoans seeking Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) cards skyrocketed.

According to Michigan Live, Hamtramck High School’s girls-only “Princess Prom” is “intended to create a safe space for Muslim girls who normally cover up in hijab to let their hair down in an environment with no boys and no cellphones.”

That said, it’s telling how “letting their hair down,” an afterthought for most women, can somehow be thought of as “empowering” for anyone who lives in an American city.

No word on whether students who identify as “non-binary” or transgender will be allowed to attend the prom.
I'm thinking I know the answer to that.

just an aside... sometimes, the only thing that stops a bad man with a gun...
is a good man with a gun.

"... protection of life is NOT a legitimate use for a firearm in this country sir! Not! That is expressly ruled out! — (Justice Minister Allan Rock at the Triwood community centre in Calgary, 1994 December.)

I heard this. I watched it on local cable. So was an older associate who I turned to ask "what do you think of that ?" He was almost white and he glared at me and said: "It's happening here now William." He was silent the rest of the night. He had escaped the Nazis as a child and got to Yugoslavia only to be captured by soviets and put in forced labor - he escaped to Italy and made his way to Canada in the 60s.

He never did tell me what he meant by; "it's happening here" but I can guess with relative certainty he was refering to the police state.

well, bill... like every other moment in your life, it's a choice.

remember, the only thing stopping that car coming at you at 60 miles per hour in the oncoming lane isn't that painted white line... it's the other driver choosing to stay on his side of the road.

What I'm saying is in this country the government is openly immoral in its self defense laws - they cannot provide safety for you 24/7 (they even have a non-liability entrenched in law stating they are NOT responsible for your life) yet they deny you the ability to defend yourself from lethal criminal attack by using an effective defensive weapon.

Rant immorality if not perfidious evil.

i'm not arguing with you, bill. what I'm saying is you can choose to defend yourself in any way... as long as you're willing to face the consequences of that action.

a jewelry store owner who pulls out a firearm and kills an armed robber will certainly face judicial consequences... but, our ridiculous judicial system aside... it's still better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6. you pays you money and takes you chances and you let the lawyers debate what's "fair."

ever been in a bar and chosen not to break a draft pitcher over some total asshole's head? you could have just as easily gone the other way... as long as you were willing to face the possible consequences.

justin trudeau doesn't get to tell me what to do if i find some junkie scrote slinking down the bedroom hallway in the middle of the night with a rusty screwdriver. i get to choose... knowing that i'll be taking some lumps down at the courthouse.

"The Founding Fathers wouldn’t have put up with any of this shit. The Founders started blowing people’s heads off because the government put a tax on their breakfast beverage… and it wasn’t even coffee. Can you imagine how batshit those guys would have been on a double espresso?"
