Okay. State Sen. Donne Trotter is a typical pos Crook County democrat pol. But not to be picky however, Emily Miller has a couple salient points incorrect. I don't know if it's 'her' or her sources.

  1. 'Mr. Trotter was arrested ... with a loaded .25-caliber Beretta.'

    The gun wasn't loaded. The magazine did have 5 rounds in it but it wasn't in the gun and no round was in the chamber. This 'almost complies' with our STOO-PID Laws. The problem is the loaded magazine, that's a no-no. Otherwise it basically complies with transporting a weapon and its ammo and any lawyer would beat this charge.

  2. 'Illinois is the only state in the union that denies citizens all rights to bear arms'.

    I have no idea of what that's supposed to mean. I have more than enough firearms, and I can use them. Eev to protect property and I don't have to retreat.

    What we the sheeple can't do is (cough) 'legally' carry a loaded weapon.

  3. 'but Mr. Trotter got himself an exception — a special permit to pack heat to and from his side gig.

    No he didn't. And there's no 'special permit' for anyone. What he had was a job for a security company licensed to have armed security guards. And he apparently went through the training (I guess -LOL) and passed the qualification test to be an Armed Guard (ok stop laughing). But anyone can transport their firearm(s) to 'their job' (like at a Gun Shop) or to anywhere - just not loaded and ammo separate.

  4. 'he describes himself as “an advocate of gun control” who “ushered in Illinois’ first comprehensive law banning assault weapons”.'

    We do not have any Assault Weapon Ban -- period. So I don't know where this came from. (either he was drunk ;-) or the source was wrong.

Again, this guy is a pos but we shouldn't exaggerate. Facts is facts and the facts prove he's a pos. That's enough, no embellishment required. Speaking of facts. Barry is full of carp too about those 'cheap handguns' (maybe he should visit more often /s.

The boyz in da hoodz fave handgun is the 'Glock 40' - as in Glock .40cal S&W (don't know that model number sorry). But a S&W .40cal is okay too, or any expensive handgun in .40cal S&W. The days of 'cheap handguns' is looong gone. The fricken 16yo gang-bangers make more in a week than a union plumber. (YouTube Vids can be found of these mutts waving those pretty guns and wads of cash around)

Thanks, I was wondering about some of those points too. Like you say, we don't need to embellish when it comes to turkeys like Trotter.

Excellent point about the cheap handguns, there's no such thing any longer that I'm aware of. I remember many years ago the term “Saturday Night Special” and those were truly cheap handguns, nothing but junk but they'd fire a round most of the time.

If it was up to Obummer there’d be no hand guns in the country and probably no long guns but fortunately it's not up to him and he'll have a dang hard time trying to take them.
