Another Shooting in a Gun Free Zone

Of course, permitted concealed handguns do not exist any place in Illinois given that this is one of two states that completely ban them any place. Yet, the ban doesn't seem to have stopped this attack:
TINLEY PARK, Ill. — A gunman fatally shot five women in a robbery at a store in a suburban Chicago strip mall and fled Saturday, prompting police to sweep through neighboring shops as terrified customers watched. . . .

Thankfully none of the dead women were able to be armed (due to the wise policies of IL and Chicago) or things might have been a lot worse.

We expect this kind of behavior from criminals, but lawful civilians exacting vigilante justice is unacceptable in a civilized society.

We good people are better than that - and to make that perfect societal omelette, some eggs will inevitably be broken. It is a worthwhile investment in our childrens' future.

The families of the dead women can take great comfort in that.

Gotta love the Land of Lincoln. And the interesting part, one of the victims was from South Bend, Indiana. Hypothetical situation, but wouldn't it be something if she had an Indiana CCW and was forced to disarm knowing what state she was going to? Of course, don't expect the MSM to let that leak if that happened to be the case.

What's even freakier in my case is that I was right across I-80 from the complex the night before it happened.
