Senior Uses Concealed Handgun to Protect Himself Against Robbers

(Crime Prevention Research Center) On Tuesday, March 9th at 10:35 PM, three robbers attempted to rob a 69-year-old man in a Beverly residential neighborhood (about 15 miles south of downtown Chicago).

Two of the three robbers have been charged, including receiving, possessing, and selling a stolen vehicle. The third robber who was shot in the knee has not been charged.

The man was out walking when the three robbers confronted him. At that point, he pulled out his permitted concealed handgun and shot one of them in the leg.

The robbers fled in a car, which they then crashed.

The robbers were arrested and taken to local hospitals for evaluation.

Unfortunately, Illinois is preventing law-abiding citizens from being able to defend themselves by taking many months to process permits. People are still waiting over eight months just to have lost cards replaced. 

Nor is the problem limited to Illinois. And people wonder why states are moving to Constitutional Carry.

ABC 7 Chicago: “I feel extremely unsafe every time I walk out of my house,” said Terrence Thrower.

Thrower said he lost his wallet last year, which contained his Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card, as well as his concealed carry license (CCL).

He thought applying for replacements would be easy, but more than eight months later he said he’s still waiting. As a result, he’s unable to legally carry or use his firearm.

“It’s scary, because I feel like I can’t protect myself or my family,” he said. “My wife and I, we have a newborn baby. With such a high rise in carjackings, I feel like I can’t leave the house without my firearm and feel safe.”
