Surveillance cameras capture an attempted armed robbery on video.
A 19-year-old man attempted to rob a 25-year-old woman at gunpoint waiting at a bus stop. But what he didn’t know is that she has a concealed carry license.
She pulled out her gun and shot him in the neck. He later died.
A decade or so ago, she would have been dead. Thanks to the NRA and IL gun groups for getting Illinoisans our Constitutional Right. #2A

A woman fatally shot a man who was trying to rob her at a bus stop Tuesday morning in Chicago’s Fernwood neighborhood, Chicago police said.
The shooting and attempted robbery occurred at a bus stop in the 500-block of West 103rd Street at about 6:15 a.m., police said.
The incident was captured by surveillance video. The victim, a 25-year-old woman, was waiting for her bus when a 19-year-old man attempts to rob her at gunpoint.
The woman, who has a conceal carry license, was armed as well. Surveillance video shows as they struggle, she pulled out her gun and shot him in the neck.[…]
Neighbors in the area say they are proud the victim protected herself.
“It’s tragic that he did die, but the lady had to do what she had to do,” said neighbor Bianca Daniel. “She’s on a bus stop, probably going to work, you know, and she has to encounter that early in the morning. I’m kinda of proud that, like, that’s what she did because she stuck up for herself.”
Those that know the area well say it’s unfortunate someone was killed, but the victim had the right to fight back. More
A good girl with a gun did what she was forced to do. If she had been unarmed this story would have turned out much differently. my prayers are with this young lady.
Robbers should think twice about robbing somebody these days, what do they think Conceal and Carry is for? Victims are now shooting back.
