Chicago Man Paying For Armed Neighborhood Security

posted on September 13, 2016

A Chicago resident, concerned about violence in his neighborhood, is taking NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre’s statement, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” to heart.

According to a report on Breitbart.com, De Mudd has begun paying a security company to provide armed guards—mostly off-duty police officers working for the company—to patrol a portion of the Gold Coast historic district six days a week.

According to Breitbart, Mudd believes the police department is spread too thin to cover much of the city, so has spent $5,000 for security and anticipates spending $50,000. And while the security is working, he says it’s not a final fix to criminal violence. “I have solved the problem for my neighborhood, but what I’ve done is I’ve just pushed the problem to another street corner in Chicago,” Mudd told CBS Chicago. “That’s not the results that we, as citizens, should be looking for.”
