CTA bus shooting in Chicago leaves 3 wounded
 

“Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly “free” state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors?

"Public" Transportation is another way of saying Social Transportation.  Its just another way for politicians and public unions to fleece the tax payer.

 

The amount of money that is paid out to "workers" very quickly outpaces the utility that the transportation service provides and surpasses the amount of actual revenue that the service can generate.  So money is diverted from other government revenue sources to pay the salaries of the transportation union employees who keep voting their political bosses back into office as long as their bosses continue to steal money from tax payers to keep public transportation up an running, in other words, keep the transportation union members employed.

 

If anyone objects to having their money taken away from them and given to other people they're attacked for hating poor people and they're called racist.

 

Uhh, that's not how public transit works.

Kind of fits in this thread:

A CTA train operator is charged with being a felon in possession of a handgun, striking a cop with his car, and driving over 100 MPH in an attempt to evade arrest early Friday, according to Chicago police and prosecutors.

Perhaps most surprising of all is this: The CTA hired the accused man four years ago, shortly after he completed probation for illegally selling handguns in Chicago.

...According to a Sept. 2013 Chicago Tribune report, prosecutors accused him of buying four guns, including a MAC-11 pistol in Florida, and then re-selling them near his home on South Eggleston Avenue in March 2012. Ironically, one of the weapons was found in a convicted felon’s car after the man crashed while trying to evade police following a traffic stop, the paper reported.

I think this has the makings of a VERY good case to show that the non-carry rule is idiotic and puts people in unnecessary extreme danger. AND that lawful firearm owners are not only effective in stopping crimes from occurring, but also exercise care in not going "OK Corral" as idiots try to claim. This is a textbook case of "see what happened to the guy who couldn't defend himself, and look what happened when the guy who COULD stepped in."

 

Harm is now attached, so this is an ideal case to bring to the courts to get the prohibition on public transportation thrown out.

Follow-up:  

Both the alleged attacker and the gun owner were taken into police custody, but the owner was released without criminal charges. The alleged attacker remained in custody pending charges Wednesday afternoon, said police spokesman Anthony Spicuzza.

Well, today 3 yutes tossed a guy to his death on the third rail in the subway downtown.

Thank goodness they did not use a gun, but don't ever think the bad guys are gonna fight fair.

 

Too bad the victim didn't have one.

Hmm, I missed this one. I wonder why no charges were pressed by the CPD, even though . . .

 

 ". . . state law prohibits CCL holders from bringing concealed firearms on public trains and buses, or any public facility “under the control” of transit agencies."

 

Could it be that they were instructed not to, because this would be a perfect case to illustrate that firearms carry and use by law-abiding citizens are not only necessary because of the crimes that abound on the C TA, but also that the only reason this prohibition exists is to restrict CCL owners from traveling on public transportation and make them less inclined to carry?

 

My attorney has instructed me to INSIST upon charges being pressed on me, and to file a 14th Amendment civil rights lawsuit for failing to be given equal treatment under the law if they don't, so that I can press a 2nd Amendment violation case and get this prohibition destroyed in the courts.

Never heard or have been able to locate where someone demands to be arrested and charged.
Nor any 14th lawsuits.
But before getting to the fair treatment, isn’t it in the law enforcements discretion to either arrest or not? Charge or not?

I’d never retain a lawyer who suggests to ME that I should demand to be arrested and charged at anytime!

We've discussed creating a situation where the state is forced to take this to court, to force the issue, as a stated matter of civil disobedience, so the unconstitutionality can be directly and openly challenged by an ideal plaintiff.

 

That's the only way that this sort of thing won't get shuffled along and not create precedent. You can see it happened with the decision not to charge the CCL holder on the Blue Line incident above, because the state knows that if it went to court, they would lose just like the lost just about every other firearms restriction case that they've had brought against them.
