Family Massacre Averted By Good Guy With A Gun

WGNTV kept everyone updated on the event for days afterward,

A concealed carry license holder likely saved the lives of his family members during a recent drive-by shooting in Chicago. 

A group of family members were enjoying each other’s company outside their home in Lower West Side Chicago when two men pulled an illegal gun and shot a young teenage boy in the head. 

Reacting swiftly, the CCL holder pulled out his legally owned firearm and, exercising his constitutional right to defend himself and his family, fired back at the criminals. 

Before they were hit, both culprits fled the scene with the help of a third unknown accomplice in a black car that had been circling the scene shortly before the incident, say police reports.

A chase ensued, resulting in the calling out of a helicopter and the use of slash strips to stop the speeding car. The two men involved in the offense were then identified and taken into custody. 

Both criminals are now being “charged with 5 counts of attempted murder” reports WGNTV as well as several other felonies. Both are gang members, although police say that the victim’s family has no affiliation with any gangs or with the perps.

Police are now saying that this whole affair is a random act of violence from bad guys who were looking for someone to shoot. The CCL holder will not be charged as his use of force was lawful.

The mother of the boy has given updates stating that while he is still in a quite critical condition he responds to relatives’ voices and has opened his eyes. 

As horrible as the current circumstances are for the young boy, we can only imagine what would have happened if the family member who was carrying hadn’t had his gun handy.

    No one mentioned whether these two criminals were illegal aliens. Anybody know? I’m taking all bets.

        It makes one HELL of a difference !
        I can’t believe you would say such a thing .
        Have you lost your damned mind ?
        Allowing – no encouraging- any form of foreign
        trash just to walk across our border and be provided
        with a free , new life , and the ability to carry on their
        criminal lifestyle ?
        Man , you’ve gotta be shitting me , Pyle ?!!!

    So, WHY did WGN-TV conveniently tell half of the story?
    WHY [according to this film clip] CONVENIENTLY LEAVE OUT the critical information that a “good guy” with a LEGAL gun drive off the criminals?
    YOU KNOW as well as I do.
    Don’t simply read this story and shake your head. — DO SOMETHING! —- START COMPLAINING TO THIS TV TATION AND TO THE NETWORK AND COMPLAIN THAT THEY ARE TELLING HALF-TRUTHS IN ORDER TO PUSH THEIR AGENDA.
    Tell them that UNRELIABLE, HALF-TRUTHED REPORTING makes them UNRELIABLE and not worth believing!

      Another misdirected comment. The radio station didn’t “conveniently” leave out info, its just not Significant. Pinheads will get up in arms to make a point that we need to carry for instances like this….no we don’t in cases like this.
      The much larger issue is culture and society, not whether some wanna be Batman comes to the rescue. Mentioning what you suggested the radio omitted (for some strange reason only conspiracy theorists like you can comprehend) purposefully omitted is NOT NECESSARY to the reporting (except to some!)

        Call the circus, I think we have found their missing clown.

        This man is clearly more than “ out to lunch “ .

    Sadly, for decades it has been a rite of passage for gang members to murder a person. It is much like “making your bones” in past organized crime gangs, although those acts had to be against a member of a competing gang. Today, a gang member only has to kill someone (anyone) to earn higher status within the gang.

    If he was on his own property, then the CCL is irrelevant in this case.

    • Jim September 23, 2022, 11:49 am

      This is Chicago. I just hope the CCW holder is out of jail.

    Venezuela is emptying out its prisons and sending them here. Dont worry tho, they become doctors,lawyers, and scientists the second they step foot into this country.

      So true. Just ask the Liberals.

  • Ron September 23, 2022, 8:25 am

    These type of actions happen very regularly. In fact, there are probably more lives saved every day by legally armed citizens, than are lost due to criminal Butt Maggots with guns. The liberal media just won’t publish these events.

  • SuperG September 22, 2022, 9:13 am

    Gang membership should be a capital offense.

    • Fal Phil September 23, 2022, 8:21 am

      Nah, if you do that, the democrats will declare NRA, GOA, etc., gangs and start rounding the members up.

      Be careful what you wish for.

  • Dr Motown September 22, 2022, 6:24 am

    WGN mentions nothing about the armed citizen who chased them off before they could shoot anyone else….SMH🙄
