Skip to comments.WI:Pair of men with concealed-carry permits engage in shootout
Posted on 07/12/2013 5:54:11 PM PDT by marktwain
Two Milwaukee men each with a state permit to carry a concealed weapon traded dozens of shots in a rolling shootout through two sides of town and down a freeway, the kind of scenario concealed-carry opponents warned would turn road rage incidents deadly.
No one was killed or injured in the June 26 incident, according to a criminal complaint that charges just one of the men with a crime. Prosecutors aren't saying any more about the case, and the shooters couldn't be reached for comment Friday. But the gunfight is bound to spark more debate over concealed carry.
Adamany said he had just left the Taco Bell near S. 14th and W. Burnham streets and had pulled over to send a text message when a gold Dodge Magnum pulled up. A passenger said, "What are you looking at, white boy?" showed a chrome handgun and fired at Adamany's car, hit the driver's side mirror, then sped off.
Adamany told a detective he reached for his gun immediately but the safety was on. He said he called 911 and began following the Dodge as it headed for the freeway and said that someone in the Dodge fired a few more shots at him. He said the two cars were swerving around other traffic before the Dodge left the freeway briefly at McKinley Ave. then re-entered, still heading north.
That's when Adamany began emptying the magazine of his gun, shooting out the window with his left hand while driving and using the phone with his right hand, he told police.

Much about this story is very weird.
An armed relative of Martin?
So which is the “white boy”? LOL
Can’t remember the last case like this I heard of. None the less it will be recited for decades.
Both of these guys are dumb asses.
Does it matter that CCW permittees commit fewer crimes of all types than the general population?
It has nothing to do with concealed carry...this happens every weekend in Chicago
Odd, this story would come out now.
May be both need to hit the range and try again next time.
I think the conceal carry is irrelevant in this case.
Idiots will be idiots regardless of license.
I find it very hard to believe that the perp with the tats has a ccw.
How about just callin the cop’ers since they pulled away after shooting the mirror.
Granted, I’d be pissed and would love to empty my Glock 27 with the competition ... uh...... err..., if I hadn’t lost it deep sea fishing... yeah fishing.
He lost me when he followed them
shouldn’t that read “two ex-CCW holders?”
Just get the license plate number and leave the chase.
Call the police.
If the guy is still shooting, stop. You protect yourself best by getting distance between you.
It might be a decent idea to follow at about a quarter of a mile back while you’re trying to zero the police in on his location.
Sounds more like gang violence then any thing
**** “May be both need to hit the range and try again next time.” *****
“Weak with them Range Time is”
When I go to the gun store or to renew my CCW I see people who look like this right beside me. Up to the point where they start shooting at each other (or at us) you can’t logically deny them the right to buy or carry can you? I guess the theory here is that if they didn’t have concealed permits they would not have been carrying guns. I don’t believe that.
Darwin was cheated
“shooting out the window with his left hand while driving and using the phone with his right hand”
This why women should have never been given driver’s licenses.. they’d have only been able to do two of these...
