    Im going to found a new charity; “Slugs for Thugs”.

    Your donations will help replace ammunition used by law abiding citizens to send budding thuglets to meet the “Great Peacemaker” in the sky, and thereby saving taxpayers from having to pay for these vermin wasting the courts time, and supporting them at the Gray Bar hotel.

    C’mon Folks…..give ’till it hurts. ( them )

    Well, Eddie Johnson (Chief of CPD) is not at all anti-self defense. Real estate agents are applying for FOID/CCW permits because they are in a compromising field of work. Homeowners are not being denied the right to have guns at home. That whack job preacher who insisted that guns used in crimes in Chicago has shut up about it because of the Tribune’s reports of guns being stolen from parked rail freight cars on the south side. Mare Rahmbo is an idiot, crime on the streets has risen since he took office, and I’m glad I don’t live there any more.

    Da Bearsss!
