Chicago must have something in the air that breeds idiocy in political types.

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/isra-chicago-police-superintendent-mccarthy-crosses-the-line-191588711.html

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Feb. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --The following was released today by the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA):

Chicago's embattled police superintendent dug himself deeper into a pit of controversy today by claiming that lawful firearm owners are agents of political corruption. Appearing on a Chicago Sunday morning talk show, superintendent Garry McCarthy expressed his conviction that firearm owners who lobby their elected representatives or who donate money to political campaigns are engaged in corruption that endangers public safety. McCarthy went on to express his belief that judges and legislators should rely on public opinion polls when interpreting our Constitution.

After totally dismissing the citizen's right to redress grievances, McCarthy trained his constitutional wisdom on the 2nd Amendment. Despite recent court decisions to the contrary, McCarthy opined that the 2nd Amendment limits citizens to owning smooth-bore muskets. McCarthy went on to say that he believes that the 2nd Amendment supports mandatory liability insurance for firearm owners and the mandatory application of GPS tracking devices to civilian owned firearms.

" Garry McCarthy 's understanding of our Constitution barely qualifies him as a meter maid, never mind the chief of the nation's third largest police department," commented ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson . "What on earth would possess McCarthy to assert that constitutional rights should be meted out based on public opinion polls? Let's not forget that public opinion polls once opposed a woman's right to vote while it would be a safe bet that, at one time, polls would have shown lynching as an acceptable form of justice. It has been said that our Constitution exists to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. McCarthy's view of our Constitution is dangerous and unbecoming of a civil servant."

"McCarthy needs to understand that the lawful firearm owners of this state will continue to lobby their representatives and continue to support candidates who represent their interests," continued Pearson. "If Garry McCarthy doesn't like that, well that's just too bad. If McCarthy is so interested in influence peddling, he should pop into some of the gin mills ringing the Illinois Capitol and count the ruddy red noses of taxpayer-funded lobbyists for the City of Chicago."

The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. For more than a century, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.

Any experienced Democrat politician will follow the eastablished line--blame someone else for your utter lack of competence. Wait, doesn't that state belong to the DNC? What idiot of a mayor would put up with a police chief like that ????

Obviously like minds like dbag Rahm Emanuel.

How many Illinois politicians are in prison (two governors, three?) or headed that way (Jesse Jackson Jr.)? Illinois is so corrupt that this kind of nonsense will probably gain traction. I'm sure the gunophobes, starting with Obama and Emanual, will fully embrace it.

Is this the same guy who thinks his officers will be gunning down people with carry permits?

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013, 2:29:11 AM PST
Yep same scumbag, also said people should only be allowed smooth bore muskets.
Makes you wonder, it is difficult believe these guys are that stupid. The chief from CA was right up there as well.

"A gun is an offensive weapon used to intimidate and show power," James added. "Police officers don't carry a gun as a defensive weapon to defend themselves or their other officers. They carry a gun to be able to do their job in a safe and effective manner and face any oppositions we may come upon."

If any organization knows about corruption, I suspect that the Chicago cops do.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013, 5:34:33 AM PST
The ISRA? This is the same group that was asked to write an amendment to a law (by the author no less) to make sure no bonifide sporting weapons were included. After writing the amendment they immediately sent out fund raising letters saying the very guns they exempted were going to be banned. These guys are probably the most dishonest lobbyists in Illinois. To believe ANYTHING they put out at face value shows you are very gullible.

============================
or in other words - the power hungry dirt-bag wants only himself and his officers to be armed. HE knows better than us. ;) Basically, in his opinion, HE can have a gun - WE can not. He's just another holier than thou control freak who thinks he is better than the rest of us. It's people like him that make me want to be armed.

Actually, that's no less idiotic than what liberal Supreme Court Justice Breyer does when he bases his decisions on laws of foreign countries.

Doesn't change what the POS said.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013, 5:52:03 AM PST
True indeed.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013, 5:55:48 AM PST
Which reminds me there are two kinds of people in the world, those that want to control others and those that do not.

"McCarthy opined that the 2nd Amendment limits citizens to owning smooth-bore muskets."

Wow, this guy is dumber than a brick wall. The next time I saw him, I'd just ask him the following questions:

1) Does that mean that you agree that all citizens can carry smooth-bore muskets then without restriction?
2) Do you realize that a musket ball fired from a smooth-bore musket is incredibly inaccurate? If so, do you claim responsibility for all missed shots since you wanted people to have intrinsically inaccurate guns?

I would also, by the way, carry a smooth-bore musket as I asked him these questions.

That's what I don't get the stupidity is astonishing from a chief, well really anyone but a 5 year old. Interesting too is none of these appointed fools or politicians address the question of how to get guns out of the hands violent criminals only the law abiding.

CHICAGO POLICE NOT RESPONDING TO 911 ROBBERY CALLS ANYMORE

Deleted by Amazon? OK, I'll make the same post in a manner that Amazon can't delete it. Sorry, sad liberals.

McCarthy clearly suffers from being a liberal. That means he's not smart. He probably thought to himself "if I say that the Constitution only allows people to carry smooth-bore muskets, then nobody will want to own such antiquated and useless weapons." And it would be hilarious seeing a gun battle between Chicago gangs using smooth-bore muskets firing large balls of metal with incredible inaccuracy, ending up with 700 dead Chicago citizens. That's how liberals do things. They make laws that they think are smart. Then it turns out that those laws are incredibly stupid. Then they make another law to try to patch their first law. And that turns out to be incredibly stupid. Repeat.

By the way, Amazon apparently deletes any post that has asterisked out curse words. So any time a liberal does that, just report it for deletion, if you want it deleted.

I suspect most of that is due to auto censor settings. It is best to just misspell words which seems to work the best.

There's an easy way to test that theory. One liberal posted that I was a retar*. Report my post for abuse. If it gets deleted, then we'll know.
