    Default Chicago CCW holder helps cops

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/09/14...r-injured.html

    A licensed gun owner was hailed Thursday for his role in helping police in suburban Chicago stop a suspect who was firing an automatic weapon, officials said.

    Officials commended the unnamed civilian for his actions as they stood outside a hospital where Cicero police Officer Luis Duarte, 31, was undergoing surgery for four gunshot wounds suffered during the shootout, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

    “We were lucky enough to have a citizen on the street there’s who’s a concealed-carry holder, and he’s also engaged in gunfire,” said Cicero police Superintendent Jerry Chlada Jr.
    See, it is possible to get a concealed carry license in Illinois.
    Although the reporter is calling him a "licensed gun owner" whatever that is.

    Was is really an automatic? Or a full semi automatic?

    Illinois requires a Firearm Owners ID (FOID card) to *OWN* a gun. So all legal gun owners are licensed.

    “We were lucky enough to have a citizen on the street there’s who’s a concealed-carry holder, and he’s also engaged in gunfire
    Why? Just because or like NYPD, unlike them he could hit what he was aiming at?
