Posted on 09/22/2013 3:36:19 PM PDT by VideoPaul
Gov. Pat Quinn says he would consider using state resources to help combat Chicago street violence, but only if city officials want the assistance.
Speaking on this weeks mass shooting in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, Quinn was asked whether there have been discussions about sending in the state police or Illinois National Guard to assist Chicago police.
"I live on the West Side of Chicago. It is an area that has been inflicted with violence, and weve got to protect the people, Quinn said.

Crook County has been protecting its own for centuries.
Government has done such a great job already, lol
How about letting people arm themselves with background checks and concealed carry permits and let them do YOUR jobs.
http://nation.foxnews.com/2013/09/22/illinois-governor-considers-national-guard-combat-chicago-crime, isn’t this a bit extreme I was going suggest this as a sarcastic comment...
>>”weve got to protect the people, Quinn said.”<<
Translation: “We’ve got to protect our phony-baloney jobs!”
I think they should smuggle arms to the “moderate” rebels in Chicago
Interesting that Governor Irrelevant is open to using MORE PEOPLE WITH GUNS to combat violence in Chicago, while all the time trying to keep ordinary citizens, who are the victims, from defending themselves against the vermin that prey on them.
****”I live on the West Side of Chicago. It is an area that has been inflicted with violence, and weve got to protect the people, Quinn said.****
But how is Governor Irrelevant, living amid the crime and violence, somehow NEVER a victim? Because he has PEOPLE WITH GINS protecting him and is family 24 hours a day.
Protection apparently only Governor Irrelevant and Rahmbo the potty-mouthed mayor are entitled to. The citizens who elect them and pay their salaries can go fend for themselves, unarmed.
All at once Quinn has shown himself to be WRONG about “less guns meaning less crime” and a hypocrite about the lives of those he’s sworn to protect.
Mr. Quinn could put his socioeconomic theories to work in his own life by dismissing his (and Rahmbo’s) armed bodyguards and walk unarmed among us, and see how long they survive. But, wanting to save their own skins and ONLY their own skins, they enjoy the protection of small arms while denying it for everyone else.
And that’s why he’s Governor Irrelevant.
Bring in the NATIONAL Guard to guard Chicago. Sounds like the first step to martial law.
“How about letting people arm themselves with background checks and concealed carry permits and let them do YOUR jobs. “
That’s the ultimate solution. For the time being I’m ok with using NG troops - if they are allowed to load live ammo in their weapons and if their rules of engagement allow them to fire on the cock roaches if threatened. But, that won’t happen. So, with that enevitableity I say keep the NG out of it.
——I think they should smuggle arms to the moderate rebels in Chicago——
A domestic version of “fast and furious”
Holder would approve....
Clothes make the man, and people act out the parts they are given.
I can’t understand why Mayor Rhambo won’t deputize the Million Moms for Gun Control, and have Caliph Baraq use them with the ATF to clean out the Chicago ghetto.
Yeah, Quinn is so open minded his brain fell out.
Rahm will never allow it because the National Guard and State Police will end up decimating the police force and city government.
If the National Guard goes to Chicago, what would be their orders or rules of engagement?
