Man with concealed carry license steps in, shoots gunman who shot 3, Chicago police say

Per my own experience: if you pull a gun on a threat, and have good trigger discipline, and they back off and no longer remain a threat, it isn't necessarily a problem. I pulled on a man road raging and entered my car. He backed away and started shouting about injustices. I had literally 2 seconds from when he stopped next to my car and opened the door. I reacted as I did. Im glad I didn't pull the trigger but I didn't have a lot of time to make thoughtful choices. I couldn't see if he had a weapon when he entered my car. But when I could see his hands, and he backed away, I chose to not shoot. I have no regrets. I wasn't charged or taken into custody. He was arrested. Its not black and white. And there isn't always much time to make decisions.
