CHICAGO, IL — A man was shot in the process of trying to rob a concealed carrier in Chicago, Illinois, putting a major knock against gun control advocates convinced that more guns equal more crime.
Apparently, the would-be robber was waiting for the victim in a backyard — he would barely survive the encounter.
As the Sun-Times Media Wire reports via Fox 32:
A would-be robber was shot and critically wounded early Tuesday when the victim of the robbery fired shots in the Calumet Heights neighborhood on the South Side.
Shortly after 2 a.m., a 27-year-old man was pulling his vehicle into a back yard lot in the 9100 block of South Blackstone when another male approached and pointed a weapon, according to Chicago Police.
The 27-year-old, who has a concealed carry permit, opened fire, striking the would-be robber in the chest, police said. The suspect was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
It doesn’t sound like that’s how that robbery was supposed to go at all.
Score one for the armed residents of Chicago.
