Good thing he was breaking the law

Cause if he hadn’t, the home invaders could have killed him and his wife.

There is no way, barring cyborgs or alien technology, that people in their 80s can reliably defend themselves against criminals in their 20s or 30s.

The invader was probably emboldened by Chicago’s harsh gun control laws, and expected the occupants to be unable to defend themselves.  Those same laws obviously didn’t prevent him from carrying a gun around; this time, though, he wasn’t the only one breaking the law.

If this man and his wife are charged for defending themselves, it’s a case tailor-made for jury nullification; they may have broken the law, but it is a bad law, and should be struck down.
