Just a suggestion here....but couldn’t we just talk Chicago Cubs former player...Larry Bowa...into running for the office? I mean...he did ok as a Cubs player, and as a Dodgers coach.

Durbin must not like Trotter.

Must be personal.

Durbin knows damned well that with Trotter being black and a State Senator, he will be looked after and handled with kid gloves.In a months time this will dissappear.

By the way Durbin in that story also said the election was a repudiation of the Tea Party, perhaps froma democrat standpoint he can believe that, but the Tea party is still around, and will be herad from, because the Tea party is not a party, its citizens fed up with Washington BS.

He’ll pay a small fine and the story will disappear in a few months.

For once I agree with the turd.
Let the Senator experience what the Plebs go through
when they have to deal with the idiots in Chicago.

ALLES IN ORDNUNG!

Es La Ley!

Zero Tolerance!

From the Third Reich to the socialist pestholes of Latin America to Obama’s America - note carefully the rejection of jury and judgment in favor of absolutely rigid laws. Then remember that the Greek City States knew that their civilizations were too large for the mind of man to write laws so wise and insightful that they could cover all circumstances.

The reason for airline security is to prevent Muslims and other trash from hijacking airplanes. If an American citizen forgets his gun and boards with it, is that person a risk or not.

If not, why all the fuss?

Or was TSA just another make work program for the below 80 IQ population?

That translates to “Make work jobs for HolderPerson, Democrapic Party voters.

PS Also means mean people with below mean level IQ’s and government issued guns they really are not properly trained to use.

"Durbin says Trotter deserves no special treatment on O'Hare gun arrest"

What else did you expect that Durbin was going to say? That's not what he thinks. He's a Democrat, he has no core belief that laws apply to politicians, and he voted "not guilty" on Clinton's impeachment. His was the standard politician's lie in answer to the question.

Well, he may not deserve it, but he’s sure gonna get it (the special treatment).

This is not the Soviet Union, if that law is good enough for the regular guy it is good enough for a politician. No one is above the law.

If the law is too onerous for this country then it needs to be fixed.

He be prosecuted, go before a judge (more than likely a demodummie) and,
#1 The case will be dismissed or,
#2 He will be found “not guilty by reason of insanity”....More than likely the second senairo. What he did was indeed insane. If you are carrying a weapon, you know damn well you have it on/with you.

NO excuse!

So it would be safe to say that Durbin, along with all of the other scumbags in Congress should not receive “special” treatment for ANYTHING.

i.e OBAMACARE

Effing hypocrites. The whole lot.

No, no, no. You don't 'understand'. Ya see, the situation was like this....

State Sen Donne Trotter was in sooooooo much of a rush from his second job as an 'Armed Security Officer' which he needs as he's only -- 'a poor corrupt public official' -- to catch his plane that he just simply forgot about that gun.

Ya know, that .25 cal semi-auto with only a five round magazine that he uses in his job (end laughter) which was in the bottom of a carry-on garment bag that he had brought along straight from his second job as that Armed Security Officer.

Or something like that.

He must work at a 'Kinder / Gentler' Security Company where the Armed Guards carry .25 Cal Semi-Autos so they won't really hurt anyone too bad if they have to shoot them.

Interesting that the Chicago Tribune didn’t bring up anything concerning Trotter’s past history as an anti-gun nut in the state legislature.

Dick Durbin is obviously racist.
