Fruits of Heller

Discussion in '2nd Amendment' started by perotter, Nov 2, 2015.

  1. Looks like the Heller decisions that the people have the right to use firearms for self defense has been bearing fruit in Chicago. This is the 2nd time recently that a 'good guy with a gun' stopped a 'bad guy with a gun'.

    Goes to show that the people can do what a big, expensive and ineffective government can't do.


    "An armed bystander who fatally shot a man accused of trying to rob a Chicago store on Halloween night with a paintball gun probably won't be charged, police said Monday.

    Reginald Gildersleeve, 55, died at the scene of multiple gunshot wounds. The shooter had a concealed gun permit and was legally carrying the weapon when the shooting took place, Officer Janel Sedevic said."

    "Gildersleeve had an extensive criminal record, including prior arrests for robbery, police said. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Associated Press that Gildersleeve was free on bond when the shooting took place."

    "What matters more, how accurate the gun is or how accurate the shooter is?"

    Well, either one of them can make you miss.

    He is right, and that person is Gildersleeve.
