    80-Year-Old Chicago Man Kills Armed Home Invader (updated 5-26-10)

    Excerpt:

    "No charges have been filed against the homeowner, but Chicago currently has a statute outlawing the possession of handguns. Its legality is currently being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

    A high-profile Chicago attorney has already stepped forward offering to represent the man pro bono if he faces charges for possessing a weapon.

    "Self defense isn't just a right, it's a duty," said attorney Joel Brodsky. "If this man is prosecuted for saving his own life it's not just a travesty, it's justice turned inside out."

    -- John D.

    ...but justice has been "turned inside out" for DECADES in America.

    What the elderly black woman has to say (the neighbor, not the "victim's mother" is hilarious (and correct).

    Decision is supposed to be coming in June. Daley says guns arent the answer. His answer is to call 911 when someone shoots at you, I guess. Unless of course it was someone shooting at him, then guns would be the answer.

    Another topic I became aware of after seeing a video posted on liveleak's website
    http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=d79_1274936383

    It is interesting to read about the laws in the various states and even cities across the country and also to see how people react to situations such as this.
