Plus its hard to conceal carry a semi-automatic rifle. Why is this incident even being brought up in a CCW article?
And the rest of the Chicago citizens cannot defend themselves with a firearm.

A veteran off-duty Chicago police officer was shot twice early Monday during an attempted robbery outside his car as a young child sat inside, authorities said.
While the 34-year-old officer sustained gunshot wounds to the chest and wrist, his wounds did not appear to be life-threatening, Chicago Police Department Superintendent Garry McCarthy said.
The officer’s wrist was broken, but the bullet that struck his chest inflicted only superficial damage, the superintendent said.
“He’s obviously shaken up, [but] he’s in good spirits,” McCarthy said this morning, after visiting the officer at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. “Right now it’s as good as it could possibly be.”
The wounded officer has been with Chicago Police Department since 2002.
