How could anyone be that friggin' stupid...Oh wait he's a Chicago bureaucrat! That dumbs&*t need to go and quickly!
Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know thisthey will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave. Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly
I have had people already tell me he didn't make a threat. ok so what is it then ? I take it as a STAY OUT OF CHICAGO IF YOU LIKE GUNS ! No problem will do I will not set foot in that city ever again !
if a civilian said that they would train his employees to shoot cops that come to their business because they are carrying evil guns wonder what he would do???
"Gun control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound." L. Neil Smith
The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
He sounds like a political hack that has lost the battle. He can not control the drug gangs or the streets of his city. He is afraid that citizens may bring about a more safe city.
The Chief is careful to not attack the gang problem they are after all job insurance for the city police. Armed citizens do not belong to the Police Union and could prove to be a more honest and less expensive answer to the crime problem.
Where else in the country do we have cops shooting CCW holders? Answer: no where. This guy is another hyperbolic politician with his head so far up his own rear end that him and Rahm have finally come face to face.
And as to the issue of CCW holders not being as well trained as our police with a firearm? I had a recent conversation with an Illinois State Trooper and they get 200 rounds per year to stay proficient with their firearms. I asked if e thought that was enough and he said not even close. But alot of troopers refuse to spend their own money on ammo and that is all they shoot in a given year. Hell, I shoot that on a relaxed Saturday at the range.
