Ok folks let's say some with a gun had spotted this guy as he approached and had shot him. The problem now in Chicago is that the response would have almost certainly been a retribution shooting, with another in response to that one, and so on. This gets back to reality of gun violence not only in Chicago but nationwide. Thanks in part to the NRA we are a nation that resolves interpersonal and intergroup conflicts with guns.

It is Not the fact that someone with a CC will Intercept and reduce or Prevent a violent Act. What it does is make those looking at causing those acts to look over their shoulders and wonder just who might be CC, and make them think before the crime happens, preventing it.

When Dinkins was mayor of NYC, more than 2000 New Yorkers were murdered each year. Guiliani dropped the count down to about 600. Even with Bloombag in office (but still following Guiliani's policies), last year's death count was 400 something.

Guns don't kill people. Liberal policies kill people.

Rest in peace, little girl.

Kill the criminals or lock 'em up and throw away the key.

Law abiding gun owners are not shooting people.

Criminals are shooting people.

Passing more laws will not stop criminal behavior.

And just how do you propose to disarm the gang bangers, by disarming the law abiding gun owners?

This "guy who was spotted", what astrological sign was he born under? It is a signficant variable in order to truly understand what may have happened in your scenario...

More sad news out of Chicago today as violent gangs continue to take over the unarmed city. The young girl and honor student who performed at President Obama's second Inaguration just last week has been gunned down and killed. More from the New York Daily News:

 A 15-year-old Chicago honor student who participated in inaugural events celebrating President Obama's re-election was fatally shot Tuesday just blocks from her school.
