Subject: Above the law in Chicago

Just thought you may be interested to see what else the great state of Illinois is doing for their state and the nation (if the occupant of the Oval Office can possibly get it done). Maybe you thought "O" was such a special gift! Pshaaaw. He is just getting started! Barb

Dear Barbara,

It’s no secret that Chicago, Illinois is not gun friendly.

Chicago, and Illinois in general, have long been on the cutting edge of gun control. They’ve given us municipal handgun bans, mandatory gun registration, firearms owner ID cards and the most anti-gun President of all time, Barack Obama.

It should then come as no surprise that Chicago politicians think they’re above the law. While Chicago has some of the most anti-gun laws in America, politicians in Chicago have placed their own safety over the safety of the citizens who elected them.

Ordinary citizens are forbidden from owning handguns for self defense, but Chicago's elected officials had themselves classified as "law enforcement officers" so that they could carry handguns for self defense.

Recently, Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman took the city, the Illinois legislature and the state's political corruption to task over this very issue.

the most anti-gun President of all time, Barack Obama.

I keep hearing this, and yet the President has done exactly nothing about gun control, either pro or con. It may be the one policy area he hasn't addresed in the last year.

News reports say that the fear of Obama "taken ur guns" has driven guns and ammo sales into the stratosphere. I think this may be the most blatant example yet of business, in this case the gun industry, playing conservatives as rubes in order to squeeze every last dime out of them.

Oh well.

Sure the guns 'n ammo bidness has pushed this meme as far as they can go & beyond. It's really working for them, isn't it?

So now we have the most rabid of our citizens armed to the teeth (for no reason whatsoever), and BeckRushOhannityOreilly can stroke their fear & anger. Good times, folks, good times.

I don't know about anyone else here, but I've never felt the need to arm myself. In most cases, unless you're really experienced, you run the risk of either injuring yourself with the gun and/or some potential attacker can grab the gun from you & then...

I have family members who are avid, but responsible (ie, use the meat, etc), hunters, and they really enjoy it. I have no problem with that.

But ginning up ersatz fear & outrage over absolutely nothing (i.e., LYING) is getting really old, really fast.

Get a clue! BHO is NOT out to take away your stupid guns, and you probably don't need them anyway.

Potato Head said...

A European commenter put the matter succinctly years ago: a government that can't protect your from harm is failed state. The homicide stats for the US bear him out. That so many Americans think that needing to be armed to the teeth is a sign of strength, rather than a sign of their country's collapse, is a pristine example of neurotic denial.

What could possibly go wrong?

Only this: three dead police officers in Pittsburgh, two of whom left behind five now fatherless daughters.

...a friend of [shooter] Poplawski, said the gunman feared "the Obama gun ban that's on the way" and "didn't like our rights being infringed upon".
