We’ve all heard of the spike in gun violence in Chicago. Over the holiday weekend, 14 died and 82 were shot and injured. Anti-gun loons jump at the number of shootings and scream that this has to do with the lax gun laws.
But what is missing here? Oh, right. The LEGALLY armed citizen who stopped a violent attack. Do you see that in the news? Do you see that on CNN, Huffington Post, or any other major news source for that matter? Of course not, because that doesn’t support the anti-gun agenda.
Basically, some thug got mad that someone moved his drink from the top of their car and he started threatening them.
One of the victims had noticed a cup of liquor on top of her vehicle and asked attendees of a party next door who it belonged to, Hain said.
When she removed it, Denzel A. Mickiel approached her, shouting obscenities and threatening her and her friends, according to Hain and court records.
Mickiel, 22, went into the residence, returned with a gun and began firing at the group, she said.
The ‘victim’ was also an active member of the military. He retrieved his gun and took cover, firing at Mickiel and hitting him twice.
Mickiel was taken to the hospital in critical condition and remains there. If he survives, he’ll be facing attempted murder charges and has been ordered held on $950,000 bail.
Bravo. I honestly LOVE hearing stuff like this. Get these street thugs quivering in their boots. They don’t expect you to fight back, so you have an advantage when you do. Why? Because they don’t want to get shot! The more this happens, the less violence will we see on the streets.
