Remember folks... This is Chicago, a city with VERY restrictive posession gun laws. All the guy was charged with was felony robbery? What about a weapons charge?

Although this guy is a hero, he had his finger on the trigger the whole time he had the robber’s gun, while he was pointing it at his freaking leg!

Samaritan?? Why not fellow, or just person!!! You know how bad you make it for being just a DECENT person, by using a religion related word, in a world that needs more inclusive narratives? I can smell from Chile the fear of leaving behind the obsolete and turning into socialists hahahahhah

Ah good Samaritans might be from the Bible but now it's a normal term used to define good people who help others I don't think there's anything too religious about it Anyways this is my opinion only U can have a different one for sure ☺️

I'm the what if the guy. So, what if the white guy went after him just cause he's black. The biggest resaon is that what is being robbed and where is the person/people that got their stuff stolen. Just a what if guy

This is disturbing on many levels. Fair play to the guy who confronted him. It could all have gone horribly wrong. The robber has a history of robbery. Why is he not in jail? Thankfully no one was hurt

Nice job La Pierre! You are a true American and us real Americans are proud of you!!! Stay healthy and safe. Criminals don't follow gun laws. Law abiding armed citizens can stop criminals. Gun laws hurt law abiding citizens only. They also affect minority groups more than anyone else. Do the math.

YouCantHitATarget YoureNotAimingAt
Attempted robbery and a slew of other past history, yet, the criminal had a weapon, in one of the strictest gun control localities in the nation. It’s due to straw-sales. The criminals will ALWAYS have access to firearms. It might be more expensive with stricter laws but there will always be access.
YouCantHitATarget YoureNotAimingAt
Back then they taught gun safety. Now gun safety is taboo and rare. This is why you don’t want to be scared of a firearm. You want to be competent and safe. Even if the government doesn’t want you to have one, criminals always will, so gun safety people, and don’t be afraid, it’s just a tool
Dave Wellings
You don't have much time to react. "I decided to shoot as many as I could as quickly as I could. I did a fast draw, and shot with one hand (my right), pulling the trigger prior to the gun being aligned on the targets. All actual shots plus my draw time occurred easily within 1.6 seconds or less. This is a statement by subway shooter Bernard Goetz 1984.
