I saw this story last night on FR. I think Homer Wright needs a defense fund.
Shot an intruder in his home. Sounds like a proper gun use to me. Let me on that jury.
I think Homer Wright needs a deadlier gun and a wiped-off knife to place in the perp’s dead hand.
Another leftwing run city where self-defense is a crime.
Anyone who would willingly live in the cesspool called “Chicago” is a clueless idiot.
It’s now unlawful use of a gun to fire it in your home at an intruder? They even charged the intruder for burglary.
I’d like to know if he voted for Obama. If he did, he can stand with his own.
>> Police have charged Homer Wright with one felony count of unlawful gun use.
Sounds like lawful gun use to me.
Go to Hell you #ing Libs that would rather see good people die at the hands of predators.
Shot him in his house? Chicago is not an American city. In Texas the guy would get a medal and a fruit basket.
Such BS... they are condoning crime now.
In Texas the guy would get a medal and a fruit basket.”
And an offer of free transportation to the gun range for more target practice.
He really should of thought ahead, while he was voting for all those damned liberal democrats.
Sounds like the Homeowner had some firearms violations himself and may have been a prohibited person himself.
That being said, I expect a jury to toss this, or the prosecutor before hand. It’s untriable. This guy is eighty for Petes sake.
It's like The Man telling women that they can't have their precious babies slaughtered and sucked out of their uterus if they feel like it. Telling a Woman what she can and cannot do with her own body! Where will it end?!
I swear, the whole damn world has gone nutso when we start giving that kind of overreaching tyrannical power to The Man, Whitey Cracker... who is most likely a racist anyway.
your home is your castle....
The home owner was forcefully interfering with government sanctioned redistribution of wealth therefore the home owner is guilty - in Chicago such action might even rise to a hate crime.
In Texas the guy would get scolded for letting the perp live.........
Looks like his crime was possessing a gun after he had been convicted of crimes involving guns twice in the past. So the issue is the lifetime ban, not the use of the gun.
