Duh...What Do I Know About Self-Defense?

Chicago politics never cease to amaze me. Here is a city that has one of the highest gun violence rates in the entire country, yet has banned handguns in the city for over 28 years. For 28 long years, the handgun ban has produced nothing but ordinary citizens fearing for their lives. Some citizens are so afraid to be unarmed that at least one, Otis McDonald, sued the city for the right to arm himself. His case was propelled to the United States Supreme Court, where he triumphed over the idiocy of the gun control-friendly government of Chicago.

Not happy with the fact that 28 years of gun control has resulted in so many deaths of innocent civilians at the hands of criminals that ignore the ban, Chicago Mayor Richard “I’m as crooked as my dad” Daley Has introduced what he proudly proclaims as the strictest handgun ordinance in the United States today.

According to the Associated Press, this would ban gun shops in Chicago and prohibit gun owners from stepping outside their homes, even onto their porches or garages, with a handgun.

The ordinance, which Daley urged the City Council to pass, also would :

• Limit the number of handguns residents can register to one per month and prohibit residents from having more than one handgun in operating order at any given time.

• Require residents in homes with children to keep them in lock boxes or equipped with trigger locks.

• Require prospective gun owners to take a four-hour class and one-hour training at a gun range. They would have to leave the city for training because Chicago prohibits new gun ranges and limits the use of existing ranges to police officers. Those restrictions were similar to those in an ordinance passed in Washington, D.C., after the high court struck down its ban two years ago.

• Prohibit people from owning a gun if they were convicted of a violent crime, domestic violence or two or more convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Residents convicted of a gun offense would have to register with the police department.

• Calls for the police department to maintain a registry of every handgun owner in the city, with the names and addresses to be made available to police officers, firefighters and other emergency responders.

Those who already have handguns in the city would have 90 days to register those weapons.

This idiot (that’s Daley) was quoted by AP as saying, “As long as I’m mayor, we will never give up or give in to gun violence that continues to threaten every part of our nation, including Chicago.”

Mr. Mayor….you gave up when you forced honest citizens to surrender their weapons.
