Another Good-Guy with a Gun in Illinois!

What’s better than a feel-good story about a good-guy with a gun defending themselves even though they were in a state that strongly discourages gun ownership?

How about two of them?

This time it was in Elmwood Park, Illinois when a motorist defended his life from a robber at a gas station.

Surveillance of the incident shows a man identified as Ronald Morales, 43, approach a car with his pistol held by his side. He then tries to enter through the passenger side door and points his gun at the motorists.

That’s when the driver steps out of the vehicle and shoots at Morales. The two exchange gunfire before Morales runs off.

Police said that Morales was shot several times and later died from his wounds.

The driver will not face charges thanks to the crystal clear surveillance video as well as witnesses that corroborate his story. He told police that he feared for his life.

This is a terrific example of why it is always a good idea to carry. Even something as routine as pumping gas in broad daylight can turn south in a hurry.

Watch the video and tell us what you think of this drivers actions in the comments!

Here is yet another case of a law abiding citizens defending themselves from a criminal with a LEGAL FIREARM. and yet the anti-gunners keep saying that NO ONE NEEDS A GUN TO DEFEND THEMSELVES. AND THAT THESE THINGS NEVER HAPPEN. Well they’re idiots because things like this happen everyday. and in a FBI and CDC report from I think 2016 defensive gun use happened some 1.5 million times. And in most of those uses no shots were ever fired. Yet the anti-gunners keep saying that they never happen.


The most aggravating aspect of it is that they are idiots by choice. The evidence is clear and easily available, but they choose to ignore it because it doesn’t fit their agenda.


Wow,I used to live not too far from this area many years ago…!!
Anyway doesn’t matter where you live evil exists everywhere,and one must always be prepared.
