We finally have a mayor in Detroit that understands our rights. More and more people are not putting up with this crap.

Yes, you are right, but not me I don't think that way.

Recently every case of self defense that I have seen as noteworthy happened in Detroit. What will make me even happier is when people in Chicago start defending themselves.

Good and decent men don't look at single women as targets. But there is the small handful of creeps who prey upon others such as single women, the elderly, etc. I have been 'taken' by a couple unscrupulous repair people and it makes me so angry I let it happen but I didn't know it was happening until it was all done.

But here is a true story. My very selfish and inconsiderate husband left me in 1994. He was difficult to live with. When I joined this forum I couldn't help but notice the vast majority of men here dearly love their wives, want them to be happy and are very kind and caring towards their families. That was very foreign to me. It was definitely an eye opener for me. It was so wonderful to see.

There has been one case of self defense from a Chicago citizen that was legally conceal carrying. Slowly but surely the citizens of Chicago will take back their city from the thugs.

Never bring a crowbar to a gunfight. Well done, lady.

Recently Mr. McDonald (of McDonald vs. City of Chicago case) died. On the day he died, another elderly black man in Chicago successfully defended himself in public. He had recently gotten his carry permit and was carrying when two (I think) punks decided to mess with him. There was an article on that very recently, either here on FTF or maybe on GunsSaveLives. Not sure if this is that case or not:

I'm not sure the mindset of Chicago is the same as Detroit. Many areas of Detroit could realistically be considered a free for all, whereas while Chicago has its own war zones, the thinking there is that the police will protect you.
