Your Friend The Handgun

Nothing new here, folks.

Only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun. Who’s going to stop the good guy with a gun? The world wonders:

Man shot sister’s kids’ dad, innocent woman in domestic fight: Prosecutors

By William Lee Contact Reporter Chicago Tribune

A Navy veteran seriously wounded the father of his sister’s children and an innocent bystander during a Thursday domestic quarrel that turned into a shooting in the Burnside neighborhood, prosecutors said Saturday.

Timothy McGhee, 26, is charged with attempted murder in the Thursday morning shooting in the 700 block of East 92nd Place. On Saturday, Judge Laura Sullivan ordered McGhee held without bond.

In court, prosecutors said the 26-year-old man was dropping off his children with McGhee’s sister when they began arguing. As the argument intensified, McGhee came out of the home and got involved in the quarrel, prosecutor Joseph Carlson told the judge.

As the man walked back to his car, where his girlfriend and his 7-month-old child were waiting, McGhee pulled out a handgun and opened fire on the man, Carlson said. The man ran back to his vehicle to retrieve his own handgun, but did not fire it during the fight, Carlson said.

I’m feeling safer already.
