“This is what I said from Day One: More guns is not the solution to gun violence. That’s akin to saying everybody should drive drunk to stop drunken driving. It doesn’t work that way.”So what's giving Chicago Police Supt. McCarthy flashbacks? Something he thinks will be an excuse to restrict Concealed Carry in Illinois.
After Wednesday’s meeting at Kennedy-King, McCarthy also disclosed that one of the men shot this week at a North Side nightclub had one of the state’s new concealed-carry permits and that the gun is now gone.Here's the rub. It was a GUN FREE ZONE. An establishment where CCW was barred due to 50%+ sales of alcohol. Evidence? Why the news. Watch the video. Look at the sign over the reporters' left shoulder.
“We’re trying to determine, is this a case where that gun was taken from him when that shooting occurred?” he said.
Know what that is boils and ghouls? That's an IL mandated GFZ sign.
So McCarthy, again an expert in drinking and shooting, assumes that because an individual has a CCW license, then that person is automatically carrying in a place in violation of the law and spouting out w/ blame w/o any evidence whatsoever. Typical of his police work and the libel/slander that license holders face from anti-gun fanatics in Illinois.
