80-Year-Old Chicago Man Kills Armed Home Invader

An 80-year-old Chicago man shot and killed an armed man who broke into his two-story house in a pre-dawn home invasion Wednesday on the city's West Side.

At about 5:20 a.m., the homeowner and his wife, also in her 80s, discovered the intruder entering their home through a back door. The homeowner, who had a gun, confronted and killed the burglar on the doorstep, police said. Cops said the intruder also fired his gun during the struggle.
"It's a good thing they had a gun, or they might be dead," said Curtis Thompson, who lives next door to the couple, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Neighbors described the elderly couple, who both walk with canes, as pillars of the community in Garfield Park, where home invasions have been all too frequent.

Relatives of the couple told the Sun Times that the man is an Army veteran, his wife a former nurse. Police said neither the man nor the woman was injured in the attack.
No charges have been filed against the homeowner, but Chicago currently has a statute outlawing the possession of handguns. Its legality is currently being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

A high-profile Chicago attorney has already stepped forward offering to represent the man pro bono if he faces charges for possessing a weapon.
"Self-defense isn't just a right, it's a duty," said attorney Joel Brodsky. "If this man is prosecuted for saving his own life it's not just a travesty, it's justice turned inside out."

Well isn't that Chicago itself?
Justice turned inside-out?

If everyone was allowed to have handguns then the police would be scared shitless fer chrissake. Let's face it, the Constitution never envisioned the sort of folk that live here, ever living here without supervision, and to make matters worse the lefties went and ruined an entire race of Americans by telling them they were SO different as to require special treatment and all.

So now, thinking the thought of millions of "special people" armed and unprepared as to how to conduct themselves amongst the civilized folk, well SURE the lefties are against gun ownership. Can't speak the truth and say WHY, mind you, because they're nothing more than craven manipulators, so all of America must abide the destruction of their natural rights.

Cuz the phony ones got seriously out of hand, mmkay.

Oh and good on ya, Gramps. Nice shooting.
