The Chicago gun debate finally shows signs of changing. With the Supreme Courts decision on the citys gun ban imminent, people might be beginning to understand that gun bans dont stop criminals from getting guns.
At a press conference two weeks ago, Mick Dumke, a reporter from the liberal Chicago Reader, asked Mayor Richard Daley what should have been an obvious question: Since guns are readily available in Chicago even with a ban in place, do you really think its been effective? Daleys response wasnt very helpful. Picking up a very old rifle with a bayonet that had been turned in during one of Chicagos numerous gun buybacks, Daley blustered: Oh, it's been very effective. If I put this up your butt, youll find out how effective it is. . . . This gun saved many lives it could save your life.
Reporters greeted Daleys outburst with a moment of stunned silence. But it wasnt Daleys answer that was important. The novelty is that a reporter actually questioned Daley on whether the gun ban had failed. . . .

"If I stick this up your butt you'll see how effective it is!"
Well, lets take the mayor up on his word and stick it up his butt and check the effectiveness of the ban. I don’t know how else to resolve the controversy.
Resolve? Easy. Drop Daley on the South Side WITHOUT bodyguards OR a firearm.
The fact that Daley was holding a rifle proves that criminals can possess guns in Chicago, ban or not.
I am still laffing !!!!!!
Yeah, King Richie can say it, but if a little serf in California says the exact same words to King Richie he gets arrested . . .
Not bad. I think I like my idea better.
I have come to hate liberals more and more each and every day. They will all burn in hell forever for their crimes against humanity.
