I’m confident Democrats in the Illinois legislature’s latest effort to ban most modern firearms will stop the violence… yeah, maybe not.

Via Fox News:

A revered Chicago muffler shop owner became the city’s fifth homicide of 2013, but not before calling his son to let him know he was shot, MyFoxChicago.com reported.

“They shot me in the back,” Michael Kozel, 57, the owner Independent Muffler Shop in the city’s Southwest Side, told his adult son. Those were his last words he said.

The son, who wished to remain anonymous, said he raced to his dad’s shop, only to find Kozel in the back of an ambulance. Kozel was pronounced dead shortly after 9 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Investigators say two men pretending to be customers walked into the shop Wednesday at about 5:25 p.m. The men attempted to rob Kozel and one of his employees. One of the robbers shot Kozel in the back, as he was trying to get to safety.
