So, a state senator worked a late night side job the night before as a security guard? I find that a little hard to believe.

Am I the only one that noticed that?

How can you "forget" you have a gun in the bag you are about to take with you into a secured area? And from the night before?

This has stupid written all over it.

:rofl:

That was the best excuse he could come up with? That isn't even remotely believable. I guess in the heat of the moment, it was the best thing he could come up with to cover his hypocricy.

Whatever else, I have to see one carrying a .25 as their duty weapon while acting as a security guard, more than a bit.................. silly.

Almost as silly as the excuse he gave, eh?:wavey:

Reports say the gun involved was a .25 Beretta.

The ORIGINAL James Bond gun was a .25 Beretta. Maybe this Chicago schmuck was role-playing!

It's not that he wants to eliminate guns completely, it's just that HE doesn't want anybody ELSE to have them.

"Today's incident underscores just how pathetic the anti-gun philosophy has gotten," he concluded. "Perhaps now he will realize how other citizens feel when they run afoul of some anti-gun law or regulation. He should apologize to every gun owner in Illinois."


I'm with Alan on this one.

Laughable at best but he will get away with it. No fine, no jail and will be elected by the morons that live in his district, alive, zombie and dead voters alike.

I was never so happy as the day I left that crappy, corrupt state and moved to free AZ!

IL state law allows for armed guards to carry on their way to and from work. This wouldnt be the first time an "important person" or relative of a politician got the licensure to be an armed guard and was given a phoney job that they didnt show up for. They get away with it too. Welcome to the Peoples Republic of Illinois Comrade, enjoy your stay.

I find it totally believable that he is using a .25 while doing security. The trick is you have to run up and put it on the back of their neck like a tazer.

Yes, but once they leave we can revoke their visas and shoot' em a little on sight if they attempt to re-enter.

I suggest that we designate Oklahoma as 'no longer allowed in Texas' sanctuary for those not deemed worthy of the Republic.

okie can keep an eye on 'em.

Uh, when one's peers are hypocrites and professional liars, pushing the hubris envelope gets you more clout, not less.

I hope he sees a pro gun judge (if he ever sees one) that gives him an odd sentence like making him pay for a lifetime NRA membership and make him wear a NRA pin on his suit everytime he's in public. That'll never happen but one can dream....

I'm a security guard. I provide myself with my security.

I hope he feels the rath of the very laws he supports.

I can't think of what it was, but there was a local politician that proposed and advocated for a law and ended up getting convicted of that very crime.

One mayor of Atlanta launched an investigation into corruption only to find himself in the hot seat.

The irony is, if he was charged under state law...the 7th circuit just ruled the law unconstitutional today (as half a dozen threads report). That could mean a free pass or, at least, it could be used as an excuse to give this guy a free pass.

This is possible, but at this moment I would accept it as a collateral bureaucratic cost of victory.

Besides, when he eventually applies for a permit under the reworked law, he would have a FEDERAL conviction for a firearm in a controlled airport area; that is illegal even for permit holders. Based on all this, I believe he will never hold a permit in his future.

I think the "security" involved picking up she male hookers or blow in a bad part of town. I guess he was still hung over, high, or had a sore butt and forgot the gun was in his bag.
