    E-swap turned into holdup , but everyone had guns

    Range Day

    All these attempted e-swap robberies are making me lose faith in human nature. Not that I had much to start with.



    Concealed-carry permit holder shoots alleged armed robber in Waukegan


    By Luke Wilusz

    A concealed-carry permit holder shot a man who authorities said was trying to rob him Thursday afternoon in north suburban Waukegan.

    The 30-year-old Gurnee man told police he used the Letgo app to set up a meeting with 20-year-old Lawrence Dye, ostensibly to sell something to Dye, according to a statement from Waukegan police. When the man arrived at the meeting place about 1 p.m. near Fulton Street and 9th Avenue in Waukegan, Dye and another person tried to rob him.

    Dye pulled out a handgun and the victim, who has a concealed-carry permit, pulled out his own gun and fired three shots at Dye, police said. Dye was hit in the leg and the other male suspect ran away.

    Isn't it interesting the number of times we read about robbers who have guns pulled & yet the "victim" manages to draw their gun & shoot them. It's as if the robbers think that showing the gun will make the other person automatically back down. And they don't seem to be prepared to shoot. Funny how that works that the ultimate edge in an altercation turns out to be a looser.
