Not that I like the guy but Obama had nothing much to do with it that I know of. I don't eventhink he lived here then.
The Chicago ban was championed by the then Mayor Jane Margarete Byrne, a bleading heart Liberal. She even put on a little show for the poor folks
living in the Cabrini-Green Housing Projects on Division St. with a pledge that, she would stay "as long as it takes" to clean up the housing
project (one of many in Chi-Town).
She did this only after making sure the building was completely locked down with what amounted to a whole Precinct of CPD. And you guessed it armed
with lots of what????????? "GUNS"!!!!!! This lasted for about a week if i remember correctly. Ok we'll say two for safe measure.
Since then her gun control torch has been caried by the likes of the big old Fascist Richard M. Daley our current Mayor, (not much but a gangster like
his father Richard J. Daley) the esteemed hypocrite Rev. Jesee Jacka**, and other anti-gun nuts who seem to believe that somehow by taking guns from
lawful citizens it will stop the murders. We have all seen it hasn't. So far as I've heard we have 20 kids killed thus far in Chicago this school
year. But hey that gun ban is really working.
Can't really blame it on suburban guns either, we have bans in alot of our surrounding burbs. Here are a few Wilmette, Oak Park, Morton Grove,
Evanston, Winnetka and those are only the ones that I'm positive about. There are many more.
And Daley has been on a campaign to destroy gunclubs and shops all around the Greater Chicagoland Area (ie. Chicago and Burbs) for quite some time.
There is not 1 gun shop left within the city limits, and he has also used his political influence to get Cook County (Chicago and it's burbs are in
Cook County) to pass a hand gun/assaultweapons ban and pressure the clubs and stores in the suburbs. And for the nay sayers yes Daley influence is
that strong it is felt all the way down in Springfield (State Capital). Believe what you want but when Joseph Kennedy wanted his son to be President
he went to see Richard J. Daley (R.M. Daley's Daddy). And where was the election decided? Yep, Chicago. So you see my point.
Any way Richard M. Daley (today's Mayor, the son) made sure that his O'hare expansion took the land that a famous Chicagoland gunshop (Gun World)
sat on. In previous years he had a part in getting shops like Bell's Guns shut down and even a trap shooting range down by Belmont Harbor on the
Lakefront shut down. Anyway, here in Illinois and more closely in Chicago we have to be vigilant to keep what little Gun rights we have left.
