    Copyright © 2018, More than 265,000 Illinois residents have a concealed carry license, about 2 percent of the state's adult population. But the state does not keep records on when these license holders fire their weapons, how often they do it, or if they wound or kill someone.

    Duncan - Under the laws of the State of Illinois a person has the right to use lethal force (e.g., a firearm) in self-defense when they "have a reasonable fear of imminent death or serious bodily harm to one's self or to another."

    Serious bodily harm - definition: loss of an eye, cuts requiring sutures, broken bones, rape, kidnapping, etc.

    Need the attacker have a weapon? No. A "disparity of force" or "force multiplier" can suffice as giving rise to "reasonable fear." E.G., multiple attackers; large, strong attacker v. small, elderly, or disabled victim; (Trigger Warning) an attacker trying to crack a victim's head open on the pavement, etc.

    If the attacker has a weapon, must it be a firearm? No. "Deadly weapons" include: knives, bottles, clubs, rocks, etc.

    However, the "reasonable fear" ends (threat no longer "imminent") if/when the attacker "de-escalates" or withdraws from his/her attack. Similarly, it is hard to argue "reasonable fear" lethal self-defense when someone is merely waiving their gun around or is firing at a victim from a block (660 feet) away.

    And lethal force is not justified to defend mere property.

    We do not shoot to kill. We are permitted to shoot to STOP the attacker. If he gets shot in the toe and stops, fine. If he is killed, so be it. His fault, not ours.

    But BTW - an armed victim has about 1.5 seconds to stop an attacker who has a knife and is 20 feet away before the villain reaches the victim.

    As always, it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    My prayer: "If I must draw my weapon, may the Lord guide my heart. And if I must fire it, may He guide my aim."

    AS ALWAYS, THIS DOES NOT CONSTITUTE LEGAL ADVICE. CONSULT YOUR OWN ATTORNEY. I AM AN ATTORNEY - BUT I AM NOT YOUR ATTORNEY.

Looking for info on old McKinley Park storefronts and taverns

Walking around the neighborhood you can't miss all the buildings, mostly sitting on corners, that use to be stores or taverns in the past. I'd love to hear from any residents that remember what some of these places were, when they closed down, and what it was like inside. I've tried doing research online, but it's hard to find specifics.

A couple buildings I've noticed close to me:

corner of 36th & wood
36th & honore
old bar at 36th & damen
wood & 34th pl
Wolcott & 38th st

Any info would be appreciated. I love learning about our neighborhood's history.

  • I don't have pics but I think 36th and Wood used to be called the FBI Tavern. Never had the chance to visit.

  • 36 and Damen was the 3600 Club alot of Daley family members patronized it

A Letter from George Dear 12th Ward Family, ...

A Letter from George Dear 12th Ward Family, Summer in the city is always an amazing time. Our Ward will be lit up with events from every corner. Our beloved Farmer's Market will be back at McKinley Park every Sunday till October this year. It's a great brunch time event with free live music, kids activities, yoga and the freshest produce and food items. We have worked hard for permits, parking, cleaning the park and more to make these special Sundays happen. Please make sure to bring the family, some lawn chairs and an appetite for local produce. It's a great time. I have collaborated with local artists, namely the Open Center for the Arts from Little Village, to create an expansive outdoor art project. The $100,000 project includes beautifying viaducts, park bathhouses, schools and more. Make sure to call our office to volunteer. Brighton-Kelly Baseball has brought a fun and safe way for kids and families to enjoy themselves in summer for over 50 years at Kelly Park. Bring the family out to a game to support local kids and meet new neighbors. The list could go on forever in the many ways that the 12th Ward is a great place to enjoy the summer. The 12th Ward has also become a much safer place to live and enjoy with crime on every level decreasing. So, from shopping on 26th Street to baseball to fishing in the lagoon, we have it all. One of the best ways to enjoy summer is by creating clean and greens to reconnect with neighbors and meet new ones. Call my office for support with tools, advertising, organizing and cleaning the block as a community. I have worked hard to create local employment through many years of negotiating and cleaning up this ward. There are local jobs flourishing and I call on all of you to heed the call to work right here in your home Ward. Below are several new local businesses hiring. Watch for updates as even more businesses open their doors in the 12th Ward. My office is your office, so please stop in on Monday for Ward Night until 6 PM or make a courtesy call. I’m here to serve you. 12th Ward Service Office 3476 S. Archer, 773-523-8250.
