Unless things have become so bad in Chicago, that alongside the concealed carry permits, one recieves supplementary combat training so that they can
transfer thier range skills to a real world situation effectively, this tactic will be largely ineffective in terms of crime numbers, since every time
a person dials the emergancy services to report a shooting, wether it be a good one or a bad one, that adds to the statistic.
The only positive to take away from this, is that it may be the case that with armed citizens, at least some of the innocent person who would have
died, will instead be the ones on the trigger end of the gun, and that is something.
Personally speaking, I think it would be sensible if groups of citizens were trained to actually pro-actively remove threats, if the situation there
is so bad that there is basically open warfare in the area. Why not supplement the paid police force, with a motivated and trained citizen militia?
Causing trouble in the neighborhood? Not from the confines of a body bag me thinks. That may, however, be just a little too real for some politicians
and activists to be able to handle. God knows there have been times here in my home town where a liscense to crack a skull or two might have been
handy to keep the peace.
