A Good Guy With A Gun

Posted on November 3, 2015

Self Defense ZoneIt’s often said that the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun (or a bunch of laws and signs of course).

“Carolina Cabrales says she was more confused than afraid when a masked robber grabbed her 13-year-old brother, put a gun to his head and dragged him inside the family-owned currency exchange in Chicago’s Gage Park neighborhood over the weekend.

The 17-year-old said she was near the counter and immediately recognized the voice of the robber as the neighbor from around the block who worked at the store when she was little. He had even nicknamed her Junior because she looked so much like her mother.

Then suddenly there was gunfire, and the robber, Reginald Gildersleeve, lay dead from several gunshots fired by a customer who had a concealed carry license and a valid gun owner’s card, according to police and witnesses.

Police said it was unlikely that the customer will face charges.”

Good. No further commentary necessary.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    This story will get national coverage in 3, 2, 1….hello? Hello?

    I guess Guildersleeve wasn’t so “great” after all?

    If I remember correctly, there were 456 homicides last year. At this rate, it seems a sure thing that this number will be surpassed by the time we hit January 1, 2016 !!!

    Will Chicago See 970+ Homicides again next year is possible

  5. Afcago or Chiraq? November 3, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    2,574 shootings so far. Last year was 2,619. 45 to go!

    Interesting. John Bacon of USA Today had a different take on the story. “An armed bystander might not face charges after killing a would-be robber even though the victim’s gun might not have been real.” No mention of the hostage. Bacon seems bewildered that the shooter won’t be charged. “Would-be robber” and “victim” seem like curious terms to use in describing this career thug. The fact that the thug’s gun wasn’t real seems to absolve the criminal while damning the good guy, in Bacon’s mind. Liberal media, when the agenda becomes fact, print the agenda.

      A few years ago I came within a couple inches of shish-ka-bobbing a kid who thought it was cute to point what looked like a rifle at me from four feet into the trees one night while I was running. I grabbed his muzzle, shoved it violently off his centerline and was about to drive a five inch blade into him when something didn’t feel right. Turns out he and his buddies were playing “Airsoft” along the Prairie Path that night. We had a direct and to-the-point conversation about why we don’t point things which look like a machine gun at people we don’t know, particularly in the dark.

      This dumb fuck got exactly what he earned. Nothing more. Nothing less. Good job, Citizen.

    I want to know how the shooter got a concealed weapons permit! How could this possibly happen in Chicago?? I’m surprised…,No,…truly shocked!! By the way, anyone know what his group size was?? Way to go. An armed society is a polite society.

    Aim in, unlock, …. By the way Gildersleeve’s Ghost was a movie in 1943…good job by a good citizen.

    What about us citizens that cant afford the training or risk our lives waiting the 60-90 days for our card to come in? I didnt know our right to bear arms would be blocked by illinois for those in poverty.
    What about us that dont have the money? We go to jail and our face all over the news right?

      great point. thou shalt not infringe – period.

    Decent start to the month. And does anyone think that there is a chance that douchebag Obama will invite the Good Samaritan shooter to the White House?

    • Eddie November 3, 2015 at 9:25 pm

      Did the shooter yell allahu akbar? Then i’d give it a great big no.

  11. Tex November 3, 2015 at 9:47 pm

    I don’t see Obama inviting anyone that killed a black man, no matter how many innocent lives were saved. Thank goodness Hillary met with the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Tamir Rice. I hope they discussed parenting techniques, like don’t remove the orange piece from a toy gun to make it look more real and then point the gun at people. Another pointer would be, when you feloniously attack an armed man with the intent to kill him, odds are real high he’ll shoot your stupid ass.

    • Mike madigan November 4, 2015 at 9:09 am

      The dance off cop will probably get invited to obama’s house as a example of effective policing.

      • Citycop November 4, 2015 at 10:34 am

        That was embarrassing to those of us in law enforcement who police the ‘hood.

    Good Guys 1.
    Bad Guys 400+

  13. Fr. Marquette November 4, 2015 at 7:02 am

    9 years old and targeted…our society is screwed because we have placated these monsters by empowering people like Jesse Jackson, Luis Gutierrez, Gwen Moore, Bill Ayers etc …if black lives matter, then why do blacks destroy them by drive-by’s drugs targeting and abortion?

    • Mr. Scotie November 4, 2015 at 7:44 am

      Hey! Don’t start clouding the issue with facts and reality! You need to keep to the Talking Points that they’re all victims of The System and/or White People.

    Guess this also rings true for news coming out of Fox Lake today. A good guy with a gun kills a bad guy with a gun. Or is it technically a bad guy with a gun kills a bad guy with a gun? Or a good guy with a badge kills a bad guy with a badge?

    Police officer crosses over to the dark side: #DarkBlueLivesMatter

    In chicago we have “hat tricks”, is the news out of Fox Lake a “double whammy”?

    LOL, ok. Im out of insensitive puns.

  15. Cecil November 4, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    For every honorable man in Chicago with a concealed weapons permit performing a wonderful selfless public service act like this, we have hundreds (if not thousands) of scum like this… http://abc7chicago.com/news/east-chicago-councilman-charged-with-murder-/1067672/

  16. Frank Rizzo November 5, 2015 at 7:29 am

    Unless you are a basketball player, a race baiter, an agitator, a global warming nut job, Mothers Demand Action member, or a George Soros type you’re not going to the Whitehouse! A gun ban advocate, come on in!

  17. Jim Harris November 7, 2015 at 7:16 am

    Tis is off point ,but could someone tell me why the 2012 statistic keeps getting changed : It seems to me that 40 extra homicides have been added over the past few months
