That is fine. Even union thugs should have concealed carry rights.
But they don’t deserve cop pay.
In places more civilized than Chicago the general public legally carries concealed weapons every day. They also ride public transportation, walk the streets, drive cars, go shoppibng, etc.
Chicago’s problem isn’t legal gun ownership - it is with political correctness that is responsible for allowing an animalistic, criminal segment of society to run amok.
The Obama labor front wants weapons?
Obama wants to take one more step toward the real leftist goal which is a guaranteed minimum income for all - no work required.
Howie Carr warned about this a few months back. He said that if teachers were armed they would demand to be classified as LEO, thus retiring early, in their 40’s, with LEO pensions and benefits. Thus all the work that Govs Walker and Christie accomplished would go right down the drain.
I wonder what the police union would have to say about this?
why not just automate busses and replace the drivers?
instead of google cars, google buses.
no driver, no driver union.
What could POSSIBLY go wrong?
On any given route and any given bus, ILLEGAL carry gang-bangers and neighborhood thugs are in possession of a firearm. These Onion-goofs should have been bitchin’ about having to protect themsleves decades ago!
Dear bus driver:
The crooks are already packing on your precious bus.
This law just evens the odds a bit.
The problem with you insisting on packing, is that now the bad guys know it, and you’ll be the first one shot.
The first rule in security is DON’T TALK ABOUT IT!

How about getting the same pay as a NONUNION E-2 in Afghanistan?
It's not about arming the drivers at all really, it's about getting more MONEY for the Obama Supporting union thugs.
The reality is this: "gun free zones" exist across America. Those "gun free zones" are nothing more than KILLING FIELDS for any certifiable nutcase to go out and kill otherwise unarmed, innocent people.
I suppose if the CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) wanted to declare all busses "gun free zones" they may as well just put a big sticker on the side of every bus that says "Welcome aboard our gun-free busses. All passengers unarmed, driver carries no cash. Have at it!"
Wonder how many non-gang bangers would be riding the busses then. Probably not many smart people anyway. Either that or there'd be a whole lotta lawbreaking otherwise honest citizens who want to protect themselves in the hell-hole called Chicago. (I know, I go to Chicago every day to work. It's getting bad. Really bad, and I work in the financial district.)
Are you going to be held legally liable like the cops for failing to protect someone?
OH, wait.......never mind!
Their reasoning is -- we've tried "gun control" for 50+ years and that certainly hasn't worked; time to try something that might work....
Makes sense to me!!!
Now let me get this straight.
The Obama Labor Force wants guns to do potential battle with The Obama Gangbang Force in Chicago.
Obama followers killing Obama followers.
civillians and union thugs both carry now, they think it doesn’t happen now?
