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...
Time to get a Glock or a DAO pistol.
The rate that concealed carry permit holders are now losing their permits for gun related violations
Between, October 1, 1987, and November 30, 2008, Florida issued permits to 1,439,446 people, many of whom have had their permits renewed multiple times. Only 166 had their permits revoked for any type of firearms related violation about 0.01 percent. I was just looking up the new numbers. Updating those numbers to January 31, 2010, Florida has now issued permits to 1,704,624 people. The number who have had their permits revoked has risen to just 167. In 14 months, just one person with a Florida permit has lost his permit for a fire arms related violation. There are currently 692,621 valid permits. That is a revocation rate of 0.00014 percent.
If you “mean mug” me, ill shoot you too. I ain’t gonna let a cracker dis me an git away wid it.
as a wi permit’holder, if the nutjob droveoff i would have tried to get his plates, called cops, and drove the other way,/and if the mirror came off i’d try to grab it for ballistics, and grt he hell out of there the other way.
you don’t want to engage and be a willing particpant. not the point of ccw.
They certainly resemble some of Holder's People.
It's all just a little too "convenient" for my tastes. But then again, there's a lot of that goin' around lately. d:^)
yup, morons do this all the time in the inner city and no hoopla about them not being ccw folks.
shows he just isn’t trained himself enough on his draw.
He lost me as soon as he re-engaged, putting himself back into jeopardy. This isn’t a game of laser tag; he put people’s lives in danger.
He’s a fool.
Adamany said when he first took off after the Dodge, he though he was doing the right thing. I “just kept thinking: What about the next person? What if they didn’t have a gun?” he said. “I think they were looking for a random person to shoot, honestly.”
I think what he really meant was: “I think they were looking for a random white person to shoot, honestly”. Justice for Trayvon fever.
I admit, the thought crossed my mind. We need some more information to be sure.
Did he throw in a creepy a$$ cracker for good measure?
“What you looking at White Bread?”
We know these two clever fellows did not need a CCW to carry a gun.
the usual anti-gun pantywetters are all over this
How does he fire with his left hand and phone with his right hand and drive at the sme time? It seems to me that this guy needs to be sent to driving school.
I don’t even want to think about how he does it. LOL
Scott said he finally had to exit I-43 at North Ave. because all of his tires had been shot out.
Seems Adamany could hit what he was shooting at.
If the first shooter was being chased by the victim of the shoot, was the first shooter arrested/taken into custody? How else could the author know these were both CCW holders? Confusing script.
