Ask police chiefs we asked ours about the need for background checks on gun buyers. They will tell you universal background checks would reduce the number of guns ending up in the wrong hands.
"To me, it's a no-brainer," Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy told us last week. "We should have background checks on every person who buys a gun to prevent criminals, terrorists or, where appropriate, mentally ill people from getting guns. It would stop criminals from buying guns at gun shows. It would help prevent illegal guns from getting into the hands of criminals."
Police chiefs want universal background checks. So do voters. A CBS News/New York Times poll in January showed 92 percent of poll respondents support universal background checks. A Fox News poll showed 91 percent support from registered voters. Polls by Gallup and USA Today/Pew Research Center show the same results: overwhelming support for federal background checks.

the has minnions, we call it MSNBC.
Isn’t Garry McCarthy the Blue Gang thug who got drunk with his brother in Boston when he was a cop and started shooting wildly in the air?
I think we should eliminate the restriction on guns to felons. After all its just one more law an active felon is going to ignore and a truly reformed felon is left defenseless.
Dangerous people should be in prison and free men should be armed if they wish.
I am disgusted by the ilk of so called elected sheriffs/chiefs who support any of this anti-second amendment nonsense.
Any elected sheriff that supports this should be put on a master list and voted out of office.
What use are background checks if criminals do not buy guns through dealers but off of the streets? Ban private sales and criminals will still buy guns off the streets. We have a criminal that put out the new gun laws here in Colorado. Looks like she is helping criminals by not passing laws against criminals and attacking law abiding persons.
Ask police chiefs we asked ours.....
Lost me right there...
these crapeaters in the regime’s private media are the enemy of America and the Constitution....
time to take out the garbage.
“They will tell you universal background checks would reduce the number of guns ending up in the wrong hands...”
Seems to have worked well in chicago....(s)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! McCarthy is just a Fascist Gauleiter, in the City of Big Fascists...
My conservative congressman’s son used to be a crime writer for the Chicago tribune but they shuffled him off to weather after he wrote about the state paying sex offenders as babysitters back in 2011.
“or, where appropriate, mentally ill people from getting guns.”
How do you stop mentally ill people from becoming a Chicago police superintendent? Obviously background checks don’t work.
FROM NYPD RANT: HYPOCRISY ON HIGH: I'm sure Police Officer Garry Francis McCarthy sure felt that very same way back on that St. Paddy's Day in the 46 Precinct, when off-duty and in the bag, he and his brother, Jimmy, (NYSP Trooper - also off-duty and in the bag) allegedly started a near riot by allegedly shouting the N word at the locals while allegedly attempting to shoot out the street lights while allegedly being intox to the point he (they) almost couldn't stand.
Yep, Garry, that sure was a dozy of a 10-13(CPD 10-1) that you allegedly started that night with that mostly black crowd.
Garry McCarthy would have fit right in with the rest of the gang in the dock at the Nuremberg trials in 1945...
police chiefs, no matter their police experience, are political hacks appointed to the position and thus beholden to the libtard dumbass mayor. sheriffs are usually elected and from rural areas where more people have common sennse. all 63 of our sheriffs in CO are against all the anti-2A bills in the CO senate and have been threatened by some of the senate dims.this ani’t the state i moved too 30 years ago
Does this idiot truly believe his criminals get their guns at gun shows? He obviously doesn't get out into Chicago much.
I think you're right - I guess sociopathic fascistism would qualify as "mentally ill".
No, he doesn't believe his criminals get their guns at gun shows. He's a lying sociopath, who knows that the Der Stürmer of the Midwest, the Sh*tcago Tribune, will publish any lie that spews from his Fascist lips...
