Were pleased to say that we are on Chicago Police SuperNintendo Garry McCarthys radar.
In fact, were under his skin too.
He whined at a news conference yesterday for media to quit adopting the rhetoric of the gun advocates in writing that Chicago has strict gun laws. His Orwellian comment was about as laughable as his tenure as Chicagos Police Chief.
The Washington Times picked up the story.
Police superintendent: Chicago does not have strict gun laws
Chicago (Washington Times) - Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy implored the press Monday to stop characterizing the city as being strict on guns.
One of the things that I would like to again try to clear up, and I ask you to please stop adopting the rhetoric of the gun advocates, Mr. McCarthy said. Chicago does not have strict gun laws.
The state of Illinois does not have strict gun laws, he continued.
Despite the superintendents claims, Chicago has some of the strictest gun-control mandates in the country. Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are completely banned and, until a 2010 Supreme Court decision, so were handguns.
Residents now can get a permit to own a gun, but the process requires training, background checks and a firearm owners identification card.
Weve been tying Chicagos Draconian gun laws to the violence in that city for quite some time now, and contrasting that violence with nearby Aurora, Illinois which is the states second largest city. Aurora doesnt have Chicagos silly gun laws concerning handgun ownership, and that city had ZERO homicides last year.

Up is down
Black is white
These people are trying to change the narrative and control the discussion and vocabulary. Not as easy as it used to be.
What he means (inadvertantly) is Chicago doesn’t convict anyone on gun laws...
Chicago does not have strict gun laws.
What he means is that the letters “g”, “u”, and “n” are still in the alphabet.
He has the strict laws, JUST ENFORCE THEM!
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy and his loyal few will be nominated to get some of that "homeland security' extra ammo when the time comes to kill American citizens who happen to be conservative...
Looks like McCarthy's one of the thug 'in crowd' - a true believer... Orwell know of what he spoke... bald faced liars are total giveaways...
(anyone out there who thinks the ammo - enough to kill all citizen many times over - ISN'T meant for citizens, please tell me what it's for...)
New York Times suckups?
