Was listening to the NBC5 news program this morning, and they were discussing the generic topic of "gun violence" with a CPD rep and a community policing spokesperson. After talking about the value of gun buybacks, the host mentioned that while the public was used to hearing about people carrying guns being criminals, there had recently been a case where an intended victim had defended himself against a carjacker.
She actually asked if CCW was an option for people to consider, and to his credit, the CPD officer stated that it was, if people had options for safe storage and training.
A refreshing change after the years of Daley and Streetlights insisting all guns - and their owners - were bad
You will not 'rise to the occasion', you will default to your level of training - plan accordingly.

Despite their rallying around us at election time, honoring only 8 hours of Illinois' 40+ hour law enforcement class towards a 16 hour requirement shows the contempt that our elected officials hold us in.

I know the majority of cpd rank and file are all for it.nice to hear a cpd rep have a positive view on ccl holders,which I assume is the view from the top.

So how come special ed always says “there’s just too many guns on the streets, and too many people willing to use them”?

Sounds like a typical gun grabbing statement to me. Blame the gun and not the gangs/drugs/thugs problems

Well, you can't blame the gangs or thugs, they are cronies of the politicians.   And you can't blame drugs because a high populace is an easy to control populace. 


The Second Amendment of the Constitution protects the rest.

The Guns and Firearms have no gender, race, etc.

If in making what we consider to be a proper waving of the finger at the above listed groups........we would well not us but the Media and the CPD chiefs, would be pointing fingers at people of color, all shades and NOT be talking about in large part about the white segment of society.

And since we don't point out these differences in Chicago, read any article or listen to any report on the radio, and it's 2 men wearing jeans with red caps.
2 girls and 1 guy running south on blah blah blah st.

Can't be bothered with a specific description based on what race, ethnicity someone is.

This is a good about-face from CPD.

 

I'm glad they're finally getting on board with legal CCL, instead of threatening to shoot CCL holders, like Gary McCarthy did.

And the populace just got more easy to control thanks to legal weed.

Yes imagine that
A still federally illegal drug not listed in the constitution and Illinois makes it legal with the stroke of a pen!
And yet firearms which ARE in the constitution are considered the bad juju in Illinois!

And so the universe turns..........

I look for a lot of snacks at dem rallies next year - that will seal the deal for a winning election outcome.

Common sense? Sorry, not allowed.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

Anyone check to see if that officer is still employed.  He's probably working midnights in Gresham for going off script.


You'll not stand out in any way. Your entire image is crafted to leave no lasting impression on anyone you encounter. You're a rumor, recognizable only as deja vu, and dismissed just as quickly.

Just this morning in today's Chicago Tribune (7/2/19) is an article on crime in Chicago and the head of the CPD is quoted as saying that shootings happen because someone decided to carry a gun with him that day. That if the gun was left home the shooting would not happen. I guess some guns just get itchy in your pocket and make you want to shoot people. Of course he doesn't say that maybe some parts of his city are so dangerous that it makes sense to be prepared to defend yourself if needed. Nothing has really changed over the years regarding the attitude of the powers that be in this state, and especially in the city of Chicago regarding guns and law abiding citizens. Johnson did say one thing that made sense, and that was if someone is arrested for a crime and used a gun, the bond requirements and punishments need to be tougher than they currently are. Right now the shooters being arrested are without a doubt back on the streets a lot quicker than those that were shot.
