Daley reacts to SCOTUS decision by stomping feet and holding breath
In an effort to make sure that only criminals and his private security force can easily obtain fire arms, Chicago Mayor Daley vows to fight for his gun ban.
“As a city we must continue to stand up ..and fight for a ban on assault weapons .. as well as a crackdown on gun shops,” Daley said. “We are a country of laws not a nation of guns.”
The sheer amount of irony in that last sentence just made me spit coffee all over my computer screen. While we may be a “nation of laws,” Chicago certainly isn’t…since it’s deemed itself a sanctuary city for the harboring of illegal immigrants. And while I can’t speak to whether we are a “nation of guns,” I can say that, after the number of shootings in Chicago lately, The Second City certainly appears to have its share.
