How Has the Illinois Shall-Issue Law Worked Out?

The Chicago Tribune has been recording incidents.  Some are what you would expect:

FEB. 26, 2018

100 block of Harbor Drive, Oswego
Assailant armed.
Some time on Feb. 26, Dave Thomas heard screams in his Oswego apartment building, grabbed his AR-15 rifle and ran down the hall. He confronted a man who was stabbing another man and scared him off. Thomas is a gun instructor with a CCL.

JAN. 8, 2018, 5:45 P.M.

5500 block of West Thomas Street, Chicago
Fatal shooting.
Assailant armed.
About 5:45 p.m. on Jan. 8, a man walked up to three people in Austin and said, "This is a stick-up, give me everything," according to police. He started going through their pockets and taking a cellphone and money before one of the men, a CCL holder, drew his gun and fired, killing the robber.

DEC. 19, 2017, 5:30 P.M.

0-100 block of South Western Avenue, Chicago
About 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 19, 2017, officers were called to a West Side cellphone store where a naked man was acting "aggressively and threateningly." Before they could reach him, the store owner fired at the man, hitting him in the leg. The man fell, then got up, broke the store windows and grabbed a shard of glass before the officers used a Taser to subdue him. The owner, a CCL owner, told police the man had knocked computers off a display case. No charges were filed.

DEC. 12, 2017, 2 A.M.

9100 block of South Blackstone Avenue, Chicago
Assailant armed.
About 2 a.m. on Dec. 12, 2017, a man pulled into a lot on the Far South Side. A person standing nearby pointed a gun at him and tried to rob the man, who held a CCL. The man drew his own gun, and shot and seriously wounded the robber, officials said.

Some are not:

MARCH 24, 2018, 9:21 P.M.

3400 block of North Kedzie Avenue, Chicago
About 9:20 p.m on March 24, a man with a concealed carry license was showing his gun to a group of friends in Avondale when he accidentally shot one of them in the head, according to police. The victim was taken to a hospital in good condition.
