“I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.”

The leaders show no respect for the law or the constitution... And the citizens follow suit, shocking!

Chicago Homicides Outnumber U.S. Troop
Killings In Afghanistan
The Daily pointed
out in a Friday column that more
Chicago residents -- 228 -- have
been killed so far this year in the
city than the number of U.S. troops
killed in Afghanistan - 144 -- over
the same period.
The war zone-like statistics are not
new. As WBEZ reports, while some
2,000 U.S. troops have been killed
in Afghanistan since 2001, more
than 5,000 people have been killed
by gun fire in Chicago during that
time, based on Department of
Defense and FBI data.
Most Shooters In Chicago Don't
It’s getting easier to get away with shooting
people in Chicago.
Last year, gunmen who shot and wounded
someone got away without criminal charges
94 percent of the time, according to a
DNAinfo.com Chicago analysis of police data.
80-year-old Chicago man kills intruder, may face charges
The Supreme Court is currently hearing
McDonald v. Chicago, which could repeal
Chicago’s longstanding handgun ban. But
justice may come too late for an elderly
Korean War vet who was simply defending
his 83-year-old wife and 12-year-old
...after her 16-year-old son, Cornell Ferguson, and his friend Johnqualas Turner were gunned down...
... The word around the
neighborhood, she says, was that the
shooter (or shooters) wanted to “make a
statement” to the neighborhood—This block
is mine—and fired on the boys for no better
reason than that they were standing there...
of the people who killed someone in Chicago
in 2012 have gotten away with murder—so
far, at least. “Those stats suggest a crisis,”
open your eyes and ears and pay attention, and when the cops come, immediately drop your gun...don't act like a child
I'm with this chief 100%...If you draw your gun on an officer, that officer should blow that SOB away...if you gun strokers want the wild west. be prepared to get shot...
