Dharapak/APMayor Richard Daley says he doesn't know if a man who used an "illegal" firearm to defend his home against an attacking home invader will be charged for the "crime" of defying Chicago's prohibition.
...Daley refused to say today whether an 80-year-old Army veteran who shot and killed an intruder will be charged under the city's handgun ban...The man has been hailed as a hero by his family and neighbors, but Daley cautioned that "guns is not the answer to the problems that we see in a home, in the streets of America. It's as simple as that.
What was the "simple" answer in this case, then, Mayor? We know you have a taxpayer-funded security detail to shield your precious hind end from bayoneted rifle attacks, but what's an elderly (or any other) citizen supposed to do against a violent home invader with "a 13-page rap sheet"?
