Chicago is generally a city wrought with crime and violence, and it’s all thanks to the liberal gun laws that have attempted to all but disarm law-abiding citizens. Although the sensitive Democrats have tried to demonize guns, they keep being proven wrong by good people carrying their own guns legally. Now, after a Chicago phone store employee took action, liberal heads will explode as their narrative crumbles around them.
The Chicago Tribune reported that two men armed with handguns made their way into a Calumet Heights T-Mobile store. The thugs made robbery threats at around 11 a.m. Even though the criminals demanded cash, the store employee had a different idea. He was a Concealed Carry License holder in the state of Illinois, and when he reached in his pants, he pulled out a gun instead of the cash requested, much to the dismay of the would-be thieves. The armed employee was able to fire multiple times and hit the armed thugs, sending them fleeing to a local area hospital.
While the attackers names have not been released, they are known as a 35-year-old who suffered from gunshot wounds to the left arm and groin area and a 24-year-old who was shot in the left arm and abdomen. Robbery charges are pending and both are still in the hospital with serious injuries.
Neil Tadros, district manager for T-Mobile, said the employee’s actions were taken to protect himself and others. “Thank God for concealed carry,” he said.
AJ Joudeh, regional manager for T-Mobile, closed the store down for the day after the shooting and sent everybody home.
Joudeh also said that the store is not owned by T-Mobile, but it is a retail establishment that sells their products.
Tadros said, “Thank God for concealed carry! A lot of people think they can go out and rob people without anyone defending themselves. It’s a great thing to have to protect yourself, even when you’re not in your business. If you’re out in the streets and someone is threatening your life, you can go out and protect yourself.”
Stories about good people stepping up in dangerous situations are sadly under reported by the liberal mainstream media. But there’s a very good reason they don’t want you knowing about them, and it’s because they don’t fit a leftist agenda. They are likely disappointed the employee wasn’t harmed by the weapons of the armed criminals. Had that been the case, they’d be standing on the body, demanding more gun control. Guns save lives, but liberals don’t want you to know that.
