VIDEO: Chicago Police Chief: Second Amendment Is A Danger To Public Safety


By Dana Loesch | February 17th, 2013 |07:21 PM

Chicago’s Chief of Police, who previously blamed ”government-sponsored racism” and Sarah Palin for Chicago’s gun violence, declared that the law-ful exercise of the Second Amendment was a threat to public safety. From the Illinois State Rifle Association:

Appearing on a Chicago Sunday morning talk show, superintendent Garry McCarthy expressed his conviction that firearm owners who lobby their elected representatives or who donate money to political campaigns are engaged in corruption that endangers public safety.

How has someone that dumb

mananged to survive in the world for this long?

You would think someon that stupid would have, by his age, walked out into traffic or stuck a butter knife in an electrical socket just to see what would happen.

And your police union who lobbies the very govt you work for...

Isn't engaged in corruption that endangers public safety? You're lobbying for your own monopoly on firearms to oppress the people in your city through corrupt acts. You do this as you sleep safely in bed as a high priority response in emergency situations and you have your handgun on your nightstand while average people are shot and laid to waste as helpless victims of criminals and govt. hypocrite!!!

The typical politician:
"They tie up heavy loads that are hard to carry and put them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves aren’t willing to lift a finger to move them. They do everything to be observed by others: They enlarge their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels. They love the place of honor at banquets, the front seats in the synagogues, greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by people."
Matthew 23

What do you expect from the

What do you expect from the police chief of a city whose mayor is Rahm Emanuel?

Law enforcement officers who don't respect the Constitution are a far greater danger to the public than any number of private citizens with guns. I only want police chiefs who are card carrying members of Oath Keepers.

That guy is a mental midget.

Anyone, who is not an idiot, knows when interpreting the Constitution it boils down to Original Intent.....not public opinion polls.
