    Database: 38 concealed carry shootings in Illinois, 11 people killed
    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.

Passenger Fights Off Carjacker In Chicago

Vanegas was texting in the back seat of his car in his family’s SUV when they were parked at a 7-11 Friday night near Kimball and Irving Park.

    Passenger Fights Off Carjacker In Chicago
    CHICAGO (CBS) - A carjacking ends in dramatic fashion after the passenger in the car fights back. "I just grabbed him by the neck," said Abraham Vanegas. "And then he turned and we hit the wall." Vanegas was texting in the back seat of his car in his family's SUV when they were parked at a 7-11 Friday night near Kimball and Irving Park.

    Any description of the suspect?

  • Zonamiss All over the north side

    What time of night did this happen? Description of suspect? Did carjacker get in through unlocked driver's door if this man was sitting in the backseat, or was there a struggle/threat? So tired of useless reporting.

    A friend and I ate there the last night it was open. The owner told us that ten years was enough for her, but recommended we try her sister's new place on Clark which is fast casual. FWIW the menu at Mythos that night was almost the same as the original one; her street food rebranding didn't work evidently and while originally open during the day, they had stopped lunch service. Friends and I really liked Mythos and are sorry to see it go.
    The new restaurant going in seems to be Mexican. I don't remember the name but it didn't appear to be Asian.

  • esinclai Chicago Quasi-Geek, 17 Year Rockwell/Lincoln Sq.

    Correct, it is a Mexican place - the signs on the windows a couple weeks back named it as Xochimilco.

    Unclear if it is related to the small chain which has other locations in IL (http://www.xochimilcorestaurant.com/).
