    No charges for man ... who fired at armed male several times - and missed.

    "After the shooting, police responded and determined that the man was shooting in self-defense. The man had a valid firearm owner's identification card, a valid concealed carry permit and police were able to determine that he had completed a required concealed carry class and was properly trained, Sullivan said."

    Thankgoodness warning-shots are de facto legal, are similarly hazardous air-shots also?

    Also thankful that he had jumped through all of the hoops that Illinois has put in place to allow/privilege a person to defend themselves. Otherwise he would be going to prison.

    Why would it matter if he did or did not do all those things? What bearing does it have on the right to defend oneself?

    Wasn't there another S. Austin man that had his CCW revoked? Just odd....

    It has no bearing whatsoever on the right to self defense. It does, however, make it harder for the state to screw him over for having the audacity to own a personal firearm.

    That could have been a case of unscrupulous "instructors" cutting corners (and hours) in the state-mandated training

    Here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania there is no training requirement, and we're not overloaded with people shooting themselves, or others, any more so that those states that require training. Oh, our license only costs twenty bucks, and in many cases can be issued while you wait.
