Skip to comments.Now Trayvon Martin used to bash gun rights - Top Chicago cop gets aggressive over 2nd Amendment
Posted on 01/16/2013 12:47:20 AM PST by Tailgunner Joe
Handguns cannot be purchased in the city of Chicago, but more than 7,400 guns were confiscated by police last year, according to a CNN report.
Now, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has voiced opposition to concealed carry in a city where last year more people were murdered than in Afghanistan.
When people say concealed carry, I say Trayvon Martin, McCarthy said.
He was speaking to a largely black audience at a Rainbow PUSH event in Chicago.
The Chicago Tribune reported McCarthy, Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr., local radio host Cliff Kelley and others discussed gun laws, Chicagos homicide rate and recent mass killings in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., to a few hundred people.
McCarthy emphasized opposition to concealed carry, even though Illinois is the only statethat doesnt permit the practice, the Chicago paper noted.
Just because its 49 to one doesnt mean that Illinois is wrong, McCarthy said.
He insisted supporters of concealed carry dont understand the consequences.
When people say concealed carry, I say Trayvon Martin, McCarthy said, referring to the unarmed 17-year-old who was shot and killed last February by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida, sparking controversy across the country.
I say Trayvon Martin, McCarthy continued, according to the Tribune, because the answer to guns is not more guns, and just simply putting guns in peoples hands is going to lead to more tragedy.

What a gay wad.
It’s all designed to foment a race war. Guess who’s going to win.
I am almost certain that when it ‘all comes out in the wash’ we will find that the angelic Trayvon was trying to kick a guys roll what he thought was a weaker older man and tried to get his gun. He paid for his stupidity with his life.
Let's hear you say it while someone is on top of you pounding your skull into mush!
And if you read between the lines. What he also means is that the lives, welfare and peace of mind of the citizens and residents of Chicago mean Jack-shit to the Politicians and so-called elites of that city.
When the dam break on the underlying emotions places like Chicago are going to make Beirut Lebanon in the late 70’s and early 80’s look like a tourist haven. It’s no wonder they want the Sheeple to be unarmed and defenseless.
McCarthy says Trayvon Martin, without actually knowing whether George Zimmerman is culpable in Martin's death - or whether Zimmerman was a victim of a vicious assault by Martin.
The jury hasnt even been picked in that case yet - if indeed it ever finally is. NBC News is liable to find itself paying for George Zimmermans - and his entire extended familys - own family witness protection program. But that isnt actually enough of a penalty for their fraud, because it has occasioned other assaults against people in other states - all of us need a witness protection program to protect us from the consequences of their fecklessness. NBC - and the entire journalism establishment centered in the Associated Press - should be sued under RICO. And, considering the reckless and malicious deceit involved in the coverage of the Martin case, NBC and the AP are culpable whether or not George Zimmerman is convicted.
OK, Chicago cops, get in there and take all the guns away from your gangs. Let us know how it goes.
Fence around the city and dump a few truckloads of guns and ammo. Problem solved.
As a matter of fact, yes, it does.
It's like saying, 50 men are marching and 49 of them are out of step.
So you agree, thugs beating up citizens should get at least one to the chest....
When people say concealed carry, I say Trayvon Martin,
The guy is right. One less criminal dope dealer and sneak thief,to worry about. Of course he means just the opposite ,but Trayvon Martin is one good reason to carry
When people say concealed carry, I say Trayvon Martin, McCarthy said.”
When people say criminal....and many other things that I shouldn’t post.........I say Garry McCarthy.
Usually appointed by liberal intercity mayors.
Their voice DOES NOT reflect the feelings of front line law enforcement.
I don’t believe the goal is a race war. The goal is to disarm law abiding citizens. Why? It gives the government control and it gives the mugger/home invader added security-no concealed carry surprises.
The government and the thugs both win. But then I repeat myself.
Funny, so do I.
Good information and comments here from Chicago Police Officers on the fraud on the public committed by the Chicago PD Superintendent:

This is hilarious: Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy held a news conference Monday where his department put on display several of the firearms seized during the first two weeks of 2013, according to a police news release.
But that wasnt exactly the case.
A police spokeswoman said McCarthy had hoped to display 25 weapons from among the more than 300 seized since Jan. 1 but in fact the ones shown were from last year. Some dated from last summer, according to inventory tags on the weapons.
Reporters attending the news conference at the Gresham Police District station, 7808 S Halsted St., noticed the inventory tags, and McCarthy was asked about them. He said the guns werent the actual ones seized in 2013, but were representative of them. Busted!
As posted here in numerous comment sections, theses photo ops are almost always staged. Staged with the same guns, over and over and over. Some reporter finally looked at the inventory tags and noticed they didn’t match the story being told. The article closes with this whopper: Police spokeswoman Melissa Stratton said the department had intended to show this years seizures, but the firearms werent inventoried in time. The weapons shown match the guns that we took off the street in characteristics like maker and caliber, she said.
The spokeswoman said future news conferences are expected to display the guns confiscated in the periods addressed. “...weren’t inventoried in time”? That’s a violation of General Order seeing as how all property seized must be inventoried by the end of the officer’s tour of duty. You think that coppers are just allowed to leave guns lying around district stations until they get around to inventorying them?
As to the future gun displays - they just won’t have dated inventory tags or the reporters won’t be allowed to approach the display tables. But it’ll be the same guns as last time.
