Armed Uber driver with concealed carry shoots gunman

That’s right. An armed Uber driver witnessed a crazy person shooting at a crowd of people. Did he hide and wait several minutes for the police to get there? Nope. He shot him with his concealed weapon. Oh, and all of this happened in Chicago, where, until recently, concealed carry was illegal.

From Chicago Tribune:

Authorities say no charges will be filed against an Uber driver who shot and wounded a gunman who opened fire on a crowd of people in Logan Square over the weekend.
The driver had a concealed-carry permit and acted in the defense of himself and others, Assistant State’s Attorney Barry Quinn said in court Sunday.
A group of people had been walking in front of the driver around 11:50 p.m. in the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue when Everardo Custodio, 22, began firing into the crowd, Quinn said.
The driver pulled out a handgun and fired six shots at Custodio, hitting him several times, according to court records.  Responding officers found Custodio lying on the ground, bleeding, Quinn said.  No other injuries were reported.
Custodio was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital, where he was treated for gunshot wounds to the shin, thigh and lower back, authorities said.

Read the Rest

The Democrat governor of Illinois vetoed the bill that ended up making concealed carry legal in Illinois, but fortunately, his veto was overridden 41-17.

Remember, good guys with guns save lives.

Uber driver “saves crowd of innocent bystanders”

“Chicago has seen a drastic decrease in crime … since the state began issuing concealed carry permits to citizens”

My thoughts when I saw this article were not “oh, thank God there was an armed man around to protect people from the other armed man.” My thoughts were more like, “shit, I wonder how many of the Uber drivers or Airbnb hosts I had in California a few months ago owned or were carrying guns, and I had no idea?

This article might as well have been written by the NRA themselves. It’s no surprise that its author is an anti-government NWO conspiracy theorist either, though. I wonder if they’d still be calling the Uber driver a hero if he’d have missed? Because that kind of thing never happens in America :/ The author has also completely ignored the fact that if guns were harder to obtain, there probably wouldn’t be an “erratic gunman” to defend people from in the first place.
