80-Year Old Kills Home Invader

By Wyatt Earp | May 27, 2010

Where did this happen? In “gun-free” Chicago, Illinois!

The man, and army veteran, shot and killed the intruder after he entered the residence. The scumbag was carrying a gun, so I offer my congratulations to the army veteran. Go home and sleep well tonight. You did the Windy city a service.

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.

But by all means, Daley, utilize your powerful Democrat brain to take away the citizens’ first line of defense . . .

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.

Good for him. If any place would file charges against a hero, it would be Chicago.

    “They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way!”

    “They pull a knife, you dial 9-1-1 and hope the police get there in time. They pull a gun, wet your pants and beg for your life. If you die, die secure in the knowledge that we will find the killer and prosecute him in court, where he will receive probation and some really good counseling. That’s the Obama way!”

    How times have changed. And not for the better.

    I hope he avoids or beats any charges. But sadly, he probably won’t get his gun back.

    Hey Wyatt, just noticed the clicks coming in. Thanks for the linkage bro! You’re an oak.

    They won’t charge the gentleman. They will, however, charge society with being to blame for the poor, unlamented asshat who our hero dispatched to the netherworld. Obama will deliver the eulogy for the sucka.

    Sure they can take his gun, but they cannot take his will to prevail or his ability to defend himself without the aid of the government.

    It’s not guns they hate, but those who choose a gun (or 15) over waiting for dial a prayer to bring help.

    I’ve trained people of all ages and from all walks of life in the safe and responsible use of firearms. It warms my heart when a “new” person takes a course and gets their first time on the firing line. The joy is perpetuated when they send an email after purchasing their fifth gun.

    I say, make sure you let me know once you feel you have purchased “enough”. I rarely hear from anyone…

    That’s impossible.

    Chicago doesn’t allow guns, haven’t you heard?

    Now THAT is what I call URBAN RENEWAL…(and a happy ending).

    Remember…when SECONDS count, the police are MINUTES away!
    YOU are your FIRST, BEST defense…period!

    John D – No, that gun is gone forever.

    Woody – You’re supremely welcome, sir.

    Bob – Or Bill Ayers.

    MeToo – Neither do I. Made the right choice.

    Fenway-Nation – Agreed. One and done.

    Robbie – As well as the spent casings.

    Jason – I have two, but they are always close at hand.

    AD – Someone didn’t get the memo.

    Bob G – If he didn’t have a gun, he and his wife would be dead.

    It’s a shame they didn’t mention his name. I’d like to thank him by name, for ridding the world of another scumbag.

    Good, shooting, Pal. And I hope you don’t suffer too badly from the aftershit.

    As the saying goes when seconds count the police are only minutes away. ( Wyatt don’t take this the wrong way, you do a great job solving crimes, but preventing them is near impossible.)

    .45 ACP so you only have to buy one bullet.

    I knew you could’t carry there, and they were just as bad as NJ and MD overall, but I didn’t realize they had completely outlawed firearms there. That’s f*cked up.

    Nice to find a smart pro bono attorney. Especially with the McDonald case almost ready to be announced. I am thinking the city might let this one slide. IDIOT chicago..

    Charlie just got his first gun for his birthday yesterday. I’m sure it won’t be his last. Stories like this warm my heart and let me believe that his rights won’t be completely taken away by the time he is an adult. Or if they are, he will disregard them and place freedom to protect and defend above law like this gentleman did.

    Actually, there’s a case like this every few years, where a crippled old woman or a geezer reduces a perp to room temperature. The cops often chip in and buy the victim a new gun or a box of ammo.
