    Put this under Wow! a Cook County (that is Chicago ) shooting and the shooter is not being charged!

    "Authorities have decided not to file charges against an 86-year-old Crestwood man who fired his legal weapon at an armed robbery suspect who was fleeing police, the Cook County state’s attorney’s office said today."


    I am not suggesting anyone fire when the BG is fleeing.

    I think the 86 YOA issue may have a bearing on why he is not being charged.

    Worth repeating. Only get involved if 1000% sure of circumstances and ideally after seeking verbal compliance.

    Once I googled "prank shooting accident". Verbalization in now mandatory in my training.

    I'm sure the would be armed robber went through back ground check and legally obtained his firearm, so what next for the gun controllers? must be exasperating for them that guns are still on the street.

    Chicago CCW shooting ignites new debate; Washington hits milestone

    The fatal weekend shooting in Chicago of a man allegedly committing an armed robbery has ignited a national discussion on concealed carry – at least according to yesterday’s Washington Post – and it adds an interesting angle to something of a milestone in Washington State, where active concealed pistol licenses have now surpassed the half-million mark.

    The other links you've posted on this thread work just fine - but that one does not work either on my laptop or tablet. I either get a security warning or "server not verified".
