Finally a bit of good news from Chi-Town.

Prayers for the injured officer.

https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/cicer ... west-side/
A man with a concealed-carry license was commended for coming to the aid of Cicero police who were engaged in a shootout with a man who shot and wounded an officer near the Stevenson Expressway Thursday, authorities said.

Cicero Police Officer Luis Duarte, 31, was shot four times during the encounter near the 4200 block of South Cicero Avenue during the evening rush hour, but it might have been worse if the armed citizen hadn’t stepped in, officials said.

It's strange that I haven't seen this on CNN or MSNBC. They must be busy covering the hurricane, let me check again.

No, their trashing our President instead. Good to see they have their priorities in order.

Very glad he didn't decide to just be a good witness. The world needs more men like this.

I would bet, that is a mis-print. More than likely, he had a semi auto. The press, still won't take gun nomenclature 101, to avoid looking ignorant. :totap:

Nope, you won't see the demented media reporting this one. They will never admit that private citizens carrying guns is good for society.
Do what you say you're gonna do.
