CHICAGO—A veteran Illinois state senator was arrested Wednesday after allegedly trying to board a flight from Chicago to Washington with a gun and ammunition in a carry-on bag, authorities said. Sen. Donne Trotter, a Chicago Democrat who recently announced he would run to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. in the U.S. House, was carrying an unloaded .25-caliber Beretta handgun and a magazine clip with six bullets when he tried to board a flight at O'Hare International Airport, according to Chicago police.

And of course this “lawmaker” will get put UNDER the jail until it rots, just like you or I would under the same circumstances... right?

Impossible. There are no privately owned handguns in Chicago. Gun control made it so.

He’ll be treated to steak dinner and win for enraging conservatives and released. Probably will also get an invite to the White House.

" .25-caliber Beretta handgun "

I've already used the i-word once on this subject, maybe I better not use it again today.

Liberalism.

For when you’ve got no talent, no brains, and no morals.

and a magazine clip with six bullets

Why is it that I was able to teach my daughters the correct terminology of firearms before they were 7 years old, but journalists just can't quite manage to EVER get it right?

The reason to be liberal is usually a sense of elitist entitlement.

Must have been planted. Trotter is a anti gun advocate who has co-sponsered 31 anti gun pieces of legislation.

No, that is Mel Reynolds. We all know what kind of person will be elected from a district that reelected JJ jr. while he was in a mental ward. I hope Reynolds does win. It will be like Caligula making his horse a senator of Rome.

Very astute observation. I would just edit it to say ‘Gun control liberal style’. Liberals have no problem w/ guns. Theyre problem is you can have them. In the liberal world youd be prohibited but they wouldn’t. Look at the remaining may issue states. I strongly suspect the carry rolls are mostly or completely composed of well connected liberals. OCare waivers would be an ancillary example.

.25 caliber?

Dangerous round - to the guy who uses it!

Like my wife’s firearm instructor told her: “If you shoot someone with a .25, and they find out about it, they going to be mad at you.”

Yeah, they are both pond scum! Just the right kind of “black leader” to replace JJJr, and stay in the seat until they die or get arrested for some crime or another.

Republicans are not allowed in Chicago,what do you think all the shootings are about.
Looks like Sen. Trotter wanted to take the show on the road.

Having said that, however, at least it satisfies the #1 rule of a gunfight: “Bring a gun.”
But barely.
