Despite the fact that it is illegal for ordinary citizens to carry concealed weapons in Chicago, it's different for alderman. An 1872 state law allows aldermen and other municipal officials, as peace officers, to carry guns, make arrests and detain suspects "after receiving a certificate attesting to the successful completion of a training course administered by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training Standards Board."
One law for us, another law for the rest of you.
Oh yes, some pigs are more equal than others.
I guess I missed the part of the Constitution that restricted the second amendment to aldermen and other municipal officials.
I'd like to see a push to get this "loophole" repealed. I wonder what HCI et al. would say?
These politicians need to be mugged. Brutally.
There are many circumstances in this nation of ours that are, more and more often, beginning to be very similar to pre-WWII Germany!
A true "ban" would forbid everyone from having an "assault weapon", am I correct in believing that the police will still have these weapons and that the "ban" is really just disarming the subjects?
