Chicago Mayor Richard Daley Threatens to Shoot Reporter at Gun Control Event
Newsbusters ^ | 5-21-10 | Lachlan Markay

Posted on 05/21/2010 8:04:17 PM PDT by Justaham

In a bizarre attempt to demonstrate how vital gun control is in his city, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley threatened to stick a bayonted rifle up a reporter's rear end and pull the trigger. Of course if a Republican had done the same to demonstrate the conservative position on gun control, there would be a media bonanza. Not so for the Democratic mayor.

"If I put this up your—ha!—your butt—ha ha!—you’ll find out how effective this is!" Daley told Mick Dumke of the Chicago Reader. Dumke had posed the very sensible question of how the city's draconian restrictions on gun ownership had helped, given that firearms are still widely accessible, and used in violent crimes throughout the city.

If Daley has body guards, I would bet they are armed. Just another fat Rosie O hypocrite.

Daley is pathetic. Another statist gun-grabber. Or maybe he's going for the Salesman of the Year Award....

Daily seems to say, “ Only the government needs arming, the public must accept laws and face consequences.”

If the reporter had said that to Daley, he would have been arrested for making terroristic threats.

I’ve got a bayoneted SKS if the good mayor would like to try it for himself.

Sounds like a terroristic threat to me.Daley deserves to do about 10 years at Club Fed for that one.

Funny, if Daley was just a normal citizen, he’d be in jail for making terroristic threats.

Mayor Daley is lucky he wasn’t speaking to Barney Frank or he might have been taken up on his offer.

Anyone else notice that, as we approach galactic central alignment, it is becoming almost impossible for Democrats to maintain their homo-sapien facades?

These dorks are mentally *melting* with every passing day, and looking more and more like semi-sentient polliwogs, or poorly-implemented animatronic prototypes.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

If the reporter filed a formal criminal complaint it might get legs, or ANYONE could file a criminal complaint.

Making Criminal Terrorist Threats is still against the law?? Last I looked it was a FELONY, Why Hasn’t he been arrested??

best laugh I have had today. You do not arrest king Richie.
King Richie sets the rules and obeys or dis obeys the rules/laws.

He is a democrat for goodness sakes. They make the rules they do not need abide by them too

They vote for themselves. Nursing homes, hospices, and cemeteries are overwhelmingly dimmocrat.

He threatened to anally rape a reporter with a gun if he did not shut up. Marxists do have an anal rape fixation however, usually it is directed at the male children of the reporters who attend public schools - not at the adults.
