They could use a little more of it in Chicago.

Authorities: Military service member with concealed carry permit shoots attacker
Gresham man injured, charged after firing on group leaving party, prosecutors said

A Gresham man fired on a group of people leaving a party, only to be shot himself by one of the victims, a military service member with a concealed carry permit, authorities said.
…One of the victims had noticed a cup of liquor on top of her vehicle and asked attendees of a party next door who it belonged to, Hain said.

When she removed it, Denzel A. Mickiel approached her, shouting obscenities and threatening her and her friends, according to Hain and court records.

Mickiel, 22, went into the residence, returned with a gun and began firing at the group, she said.

As Mickiel fired at the victims’ vehicle, the military member retrieved his gun and took cover near the vehicle’s front fender, according to Hain. Two unidentified people also shot at the group, she said.

The military service member fired two shots and struck Mickiel twice, she said.

I’m sure Rahm will find some way to prosecute the defender.

    Interesting that they emphasize that a member of the military was carrying. They seem to be saying, “Well, of COURSE military personnel know how to handle pistols!”

    And they would be wrong. But it’s spin on their part, trying to play down the positive benefits of people carrying firearms for self-defense.

    As usual, the plurality of media is keeping mum on this story.

    We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission.
