There are now two instances of Chicago individuals defending themselves w/ unregistered handguns. We have the 80 yr old vet against a lifelong criminal and now this:
A South Austin resident shot and wounded a man who crashed through the window of his home while fleeing police early this morning, officials say.
As some have noted, charges are, as of now, not being filed against these individuals who are victims of real criminals. Obama, on the other hand, would have these men prosecuted for defending themselves. In 2004, he voted multiple times against the 'Hale Demar Act' that provided an affirmative defense for individuals legitimately defending their homes with firearms regardless of local laws.
The fact remains that even though he's bent to the political wind in DC, his political views are towards 'gun control', no matter the cost to the citizenry.
Interestingly, the act's not been mentioned by the 'authorized journalists' nor the CPD. IMO they're trying to show their benevolence in not pressing charges instead of the fact that they would lose if they tried.
