Rahm gives 100% support to anti-gun Chicago police chief

Rahm gives 100% support to anti-gun Chicago police chief

In a press conference Monday, Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago expressed his “100 percent” support for Police Chief Garry McCarthy, who recently referred to law-abiding gun owners as agents of political corruption and has been under attack by the black caucus of aldermen for his inability to reduce violence in their neighborhoods.

Attacking legal gun ownership has been the default position for Emanuel, McCarthy, and nearly all the Democrat candidates in the election to replace Jesse Jackson, Jr. as the utter failure of their policies to help the citizens of Chicago becomes more apparent with each murder on the streets.

Illinois Review, which obtained the audio from McCarthy’s radio interview, writes:

McCarthy, who spoke with Bill Cameron on WLS AM 890 last Sunday, expressed his conviction that firearms owners who lobby their elected representatives or who donate money to political campaigns are engaged in corruption that endangers public safety. He also went on to express his belief that judges and legislators should rely on public opinion polls – rather than the law – when interpreting the Constitution.

After dismissing the citizen’s right to redress grievances, McCarthy took aim at the 2nd Amendment, opining that it limits citizens to owning smooth-bore muskets and supports mandatory liability insurance for firearm owners as well as the mandatory application of GPS tracking devices to civilian owned firearms.

McCarthy may be wincing on the inside at Rahm’s gesture; the last time he offered his “100 percent support” was to Chicago Public Schools CEO Jean-Claude Brizard, who “resigned” just after the teachers strike concluded.

Knowing that Supt. McCrackshot has a habit of shooting out streetlamps, I wonder if Emanuel has streetlight replacement figured-in to Chicago’s budget! There’s no shortage of “love” for the Supt. over at http://secondcitycop.blogspot.com/

“He also went on to express his belief that judges and legislators should rely on public opinion polls – rather than the law – when interpreting the Constitution.”

That’s like saying the Ten Commandments were Ten Suggestions.

That’s OK! I throw 100% of my support to the law-abiding, gun owners.

The “Deadfish” mayor isn’t the only thing that stinks in Chicago.

I’m surprised they even raise an eyebrow at “Agents of political corruption,” Chicago, that lovely city, where democrat politicians go to be buried after they die, so they can remain active in politics.

“Could you come to the office, and bring your big fucking mouth with you?”

I know this is a stupid question, I have heard all the quick answers.

But, why do they want our guns? They know hand guns kill more people every day. Yet they want our long guns – why? It seems we have a population of people who love to point out others stupidity and leave it at that. What is one answer we can all stick to and repeat over and over again right in the face of their fained stupidity till we win?

Michelle Obama might have went a bridge too far even for ABC, she played stupid about how Hadiya Pendleton was killed in Chicago: “She was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need,..” ABC memory holed it for her.

    Betty, the short and true answer is they don’t care about which guns they take, they care about the power to do it. They couldn’t care less if handguns kill more people than rifles, because if they did, they would seek to ban handguns instead of rifles. I won’t even deign to give them the satisfaction of using the rifle’s preface moniker.

    The whole farce is about control and power. If they can bully people into doing what they want, they win. Here’s a good example of what I mean:

      Thank you, I followed your link and I think you’re right. It reminded me of another instance of that type of bulling, I think is was Mayor Bloomberg’s private security following somebody.

      A few months ago my son showed me a video about how to handle a routine traffic stop. Here it is: http://youtu.be/eDJrQBwJpqk

    Betty, IMO Paul is right.

    I think one of the reasons behind the grab is that people who can legally own guns have a different mindset than those who do not, no matter if they actually have any.

    People who legally can own weapons are much more likely to get uppity about crooked politicians.

    Long guns give you the ability to “reach out and touch someone”. They are a greater threat to someone intent upon oppression than a handgun.
