Anti-Gun Chicago Legislator Arrested At Airport With Gun

“Gun Control” is by far one of the most hypocritical of all government policies.  When politicians and their misguided followers suggests that weapons need to be controlled, they are by no means talking about the weapons that are actually take millions of lives, the weapons that are wielded by the military and the police.  Instead they focus on disarming the general population, which is an obvious attempt to gain more control over them.

Most anti-gun politicians still carry guns themselves, or have people follow them around with guns to protect them, so they obviously know that there is value in being just as armed as someone who may hurt you.  Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, so it should be no surprise that it is also leading the country in violent crime.





The hypocrisy of these policies were made even more obvious last week, when an anti gun senator in Chicago was arrested for bringing a gun to an airport.

ABC News reported that:

“State Senator Donne Trotter vowed to stay in the race for Jesse Jackson Jr.’s vacated Congressional seat despite the federal charge against him…He was arrested Wednesday at O’Hare, where security discovered a gun in Trotter’s carry-on bag.  Trotter, a Democrat who has served in the state legislature since 1988, spent Wednesday night in police lockup. Thursday, the judge set Trotter’s bond at $25,000.”

The article goes on to say that while he did have a permit to carry, the gun wasn’t licensed in the state of Chicago.  Obviously, permits or licences shouldn’t even be necessary to begin with, but Senator Donne Trotter doesn’t see things that way.  Ironically, he is a co-sponsor of Governor Pat Quinn’s latest bill banning “assault weapons” and large capacity clips.  The bill would specifically ban the AK-47, AR-15 and TEC-9 semi-automatic weapons.

Right now, re-election is not looking so great for Senator Donne Trotter.
