The media seldom mentions the 2,000,000 or more times a citizen uses a firearm in self-defense. Many times, these incidents are unreported and if they are reported, they go unmentioned or appear deep in a newspaper. Sometimes there is just no avoiding reporting a good outcome when a legally armed citizen uses a firearm. Such was the case last Thursday when Cicero, Illinois police officers engaged a suspect who was firing at them with an automatic weapon. Officer Luis Duarte was hit several times during the shootout. Suddenly, an armed citizen got out of his car and fired at the suspect, hitting him once, which ended the gunfight. The Cicero, Illinois Superintendent of Police and Town President Larry Dominick praised the citizen for intervening. The name of the armed citizen has not been released.
Cicero is in Cook County. Cook County has 89,779 Illinois Concealed Carry Licensees and 598,205 FOID card holders, as of last week.
