Even in the People's Republic of Illinois, Self-defense Works

Not in Chicago, but the fact that a Chicago paper is reporting (neutrally) on an act of self-defense is nearly a miracle in itself. Police: Homeowner shoots, kills intruder in apparent home invasion -
Two individuals reportedly entered the residence, the release said. One was shot by the homeowner; that person was transported to Mendota Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead in the emergency room.

The second individual left the scene in a small, dark vehicle, according to the release. After the sheriff’s office passed on a description of the vehicle to local police departments, the Ottawa Police Department pulled over a vehicle matching that description on the north side of town and a suspect was taken into custody.
No Brady-Bunch nonsense. No quotes for police chiefs saying it's better not to fight back.

Maybe there is hope for Illinois after all.
