Shall we all wear safety pins to demonstrate it takes the 2A to defend the 1st Amendment rights of everyone, even whack jobs? 
 
Nah. Let them figure that out on their own.


I've been wearing a safety pin like this for years:

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.

Do rent a mobs count as part of Obama's employment incentive program?

 

Yes.  But only if they're left wing mobs.

Can someone ask these "protesters" if they could come a little farther south with these gatherings?
It's always up north, is it an "breathe the air" thing up there?

All 5 of them live in deerfield or glenco or somewhere up there.
They came south with their gun shop tour, which was nice because I learned about gun shops I didn't even know existed :)

They have 30-35 protesters standing on the corner with signs. There were at least 125 people in Portillo's when I left. They look pretty lame.

Does anyone have a diesel truck they can leave idling nearby - to keep the protesters warm, of course. :devil:

What I liked was the parking lot was packed, short wait in the drive-thru. The lack of a counter-protest did make the protest fairly lame, less than 25 when I was there, a lone unidentifiable guy with a camera, and no reporter.

I just came from Portillo's, the place was packed. I didn't see the protesters, I drove around the parking lot a few times and went inside briefly, didn't see a single "signs save lives" person. They must've given up before I got there.

 

What I did see was a lot of folks wearing NRA hats, as well as Vietnam veterans caps who were mingling with a Deerfield Police Officer out front. 

 

So, like the rest of Lee Goodman's demonstrations, this one looks to have been another failure. I guess he'll have to try again when the new Mariano's opens in Bannockburn.

Yea at 10:30am on a Tuesday. I guess these people don't have jobs.

 

They are being borrowed from the anti-Trump protesters. They are all down there and getting paid so I guess they are moving them around.

Yes, and anti-gunners were a good distance away from Portillo's and not spending money.  Pro-gunners were inside Portillo's, spending money, and talking with management who were appreciative.

When they came to Lombard to 'protest' they only hung around for about an hour. That might be their MO. Show up, make a presence for the cameras for an hour and move on.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars... ~unknown

 

The problem is not guns! It's hearts without God, homes without discipline, schools without prayer, and courts without justice. ~unknown

While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." ~ Samuel Adams 1779 to James Warren

 

Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions.

They should have stopped on the West side of Chicago and rented some of the BLaM Protesters ! Then they would have also gotten the support of the CPD Superintendent !!

It was all good.

Rubicon took on Lee and his rabbi with some Old Testament razzmatazz and dispersed the protestors.

 

One protestor asked me:  "What are you all so scared of in there?"

 

"Absolutely Nothing." is the textbook answer that I gave her.

How much money do you think a Lee Goodman has spent at Portillo's in his lifetime?

 

Are you calling him fat?

Stung by the result of McDonald v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 3020 (2010), the City quickly enacted an ordinance that was too clever by half. Recognizing that a complete gun ban would no longer survive Supreme Court review, the City required all gun owners to obtain training that included one hour of live‐range instruction, and then banned all live ranges within City limits. This was not so much a nod to the importance of live‐range training as it was a thumbing of the municipal nose at the Supreme Court.

Hey Lee, get your own hot dog stand and plaster it with as many signs as you want. What a maroon!

The picture in the Tribune article showed about seven protesters...

And an almost equal number of pro-gun people.

Oh that's a good one. I really like how they cropped out their short bus too.

LOL. He's mad.

 

 

 

Here is what Dick Portillo told reporters. He forgot to mention what he told us, that he has a concealed-carry permit and thinks people should be allowed to carry guns where they want.

 

And why should Dick P. have to tell the world he carries?

Thanks for posting this. I was surprised to hear "much smaller" pro-2A group. I guess I should have showed up instead of expecting others to do the legwork for me.

 

Also what accidents??? Where are these angry accidents that Lee Goodman and his group are referencing??? There are millions of guns and I don't hear much about any accidents.

Someone needs to ask Lee G to pony up the link or news article about handgun accidents at Portillio's!
And a link or article about the gun owner who got angry at Portillio's and settled an argument or blasted away inside!

And the little old lady, the carnage is not from the bad people, it's from the normal people who have access to guns and bad things happen!
Are you F'en serious lady?

What carnage is she talking about that was committed by a normal person?

How can the news stations show this crap without doing a fact check?
They spew this garbage as legit and written in stone just because it's a group pushing its agenda?

I had Portillos for lunch. Delicious. Even though the one I went to is posted due to Chicago's ridiculous infringement via the liquor licensing laws. Their chocolate cake is fantastic!

There's a new Mariano's opening up at the corner of Golf & Elmhurst.  Course, if they're banned....

 

I feel a little sorry for these places.  All they're wanting to do is comply with the law, then Goodman and his ilk try to disrupt that for their own personal gain.

 

Does anybody have Goodman's address?  I want to send him a model plane to put together, he clearly needs a hobby.


I want to CCW my Mossberg 500. That's legit, right?

Yes, he needs a hobby, but first he needs a conscience.  In order for him to put that model plane together, he has to stop trying to impose his views on others - which is a moral failing -  that requires a conscience adjustment or transplant.
