    Yesterday morning an off duty Chicago police officer shot and killed a man that attempted to rob him.

    Only criminals and cops can carry firearms in Illinois, but it just amazes me once again, that those two groups of people are the only ones that can protect themself.

    Congrats to the officer for saving his life. Cops with nationwide carry permits, 1. Criminals, 0.

    Unfortunately the media will probably blow it out of proportion and he will be suspended or something pending an investigation /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    We can carry here in Nevada, just have to get a permit.

    The FOID act is quite old. The Chicago democratic machine will probably never be defeated so the rest of Illinois has to suffer.

    The officer was justified in the shooting, surprisingly even the radio reported it on his side.

    The criminal was dead at the scene. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Good. One less peckerhead in the city to victimize people.

    Friends, arm yourseleves. With information, and FIREPOWER!

    Funny how God's natural law gives man the undeniable right to defend oneself from harm, but "man's" law prohibits it.

    God,1. Civil law from libs,0.

    some punk here in portland decided to get in a shootout with some cops... we wounded some of them but got wounded himself. Still, he held onto his gun and refused to give it up or follow any of the others instructions the cops gave. The cop in charge on the scene already had wounded men and he wasnt going to risk any more by approaching and trying to disarm the guy, so he called the swat-type guys in... by the time the guys in heavy armor arrived to help, the bad guy had bled to death. Good guys 2... bad guys 0. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I believe it was Al Capone who once said " A kind word and a gun will get you more than a kind word".
