1. In the comments:

She has a cc license but she was carrying illegally because we are not allowed to carry on CTA busses and trains . She should have been unarmed. This would have turned out very differently. The law needs to change so that we can protect ourselves!

Technically she was not on the CTA bus yet, she was standing on a public sidewalk, so no crime committed by her today, correct?

Correct but she was waiting for it to get on it. So it tells me she usually carries her gun when she gets on bus. We need to change so that law abiding citizens can carry especially in places that there is always crime.

I'll bet the guy was counting on her being unarmed with the bus being a gun-free zone.
We'll see how this plays out in court. Gun-free zones are are open season areas to criminals.
