Chicago Gun Ban in Action

Convicted felon brings loaded gun into bond court

In an embarrassing security breach, a convicted felon arrested on a drug charge was able to bring a hidden loaded gun into the Cook County Jail complex -- and into his bond hearing -- before later dumping it at a jail laundry room, prosecutors said today.

Ellison has told investigators that the gun, a .380 semi-automatic with one bullet in the chamber, was tied to a string and "dangling'' inside his shorts near his groin, a source said. The Cook County sheriff's office apparently missed finding the gun in a pat down and when he sneaked away from the metal detector and body scanning machine at the jail, a source said.

I'm sorry but this is so amazingly stupid it's funny.

Convicted felon.
Armed Security.
Metal Detectors.
Multiple Pat Downs.

Yep. "Tough Gun Laws" are really effective
