    After Shooting, Chicago Democrat Advocates Residents Get Guns and Carry Permits


    After Shooting, Chicago Democrat Advocates Residents Get Guns and Carry Permits

    LaShawn Ford has served as an Illinois State Representative since 2007. Like his fellow Chicago Democrat General Assembly members, he has been a fairly consistent vote against gun rights since, well, forever.


    But he recently appeared on radio station WLS-AM encouraging residents to arm themselves and get their carry licenses.

    What caused Rep. Ford’s sudden, very public change when it comes to guns? Could it be the “come to Jesus” moment this past weekend outside his home that left one man dead? Or was it the fact that his car was riddled with gunfire during the incident?


    Regardless of the reason Ford has changed his way of thinking, we welcome it. His constituents deserve the proven personal defense benefits of firearms ownership and concealed carry.


    WLS-AM has the story of what happened outside Ford’s home:
    After another violent weekend that saw eight people killed and at least 32 others wounded, one lawmaker is taking action by encouraging his constituents to arm themselves.


    Bullets from a shooting that left a 22-year-old dead in the Austin Neighborhood on the West Side Sunday also found State Rep. La Shawn Ford’s (D-Chicago) car. …


    “I think about it all the time,” Ford said of the shootings that plague his community. “That’s why I’m working with a concealed carry instructor and we’re going to go through the neighborhood and we’re going to encourage people to get their concealed carry license because it makes no sense for people not to have the protections that they need.”


    You’re absolutely right, Rep. Ford. We’ve been saying the same thing since the beginning of time.


    Better late than never for you to notice the proven benefits of firearm ownership for good guys and gals. We’re glad to have you on our side.

    Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms. — Robert Heinlein

    There's this movie...it stinks BUT...it teaches a very good lesson. It's called The Strangers. No guns to any worthwhile degree were involved. BUT. If the lead male character knew how to use one and put a shell in it...HE might have survived. As it was, he didn't. Knives were used a great deal. knives. masks. unknown identities. hit and run type fighting...there was a plot but no story line so you didn't know a lot of the why of what was going on....but hell...isn't that life? in general? LOL

    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    The Devil whispered in Trumps ear and said,
    "you're not strong enough to withstand the storm".
    President Trump whispered back,"I am The Storm"!

    Truth be told a lot of inner city blacks are pro gun rights even if they hate the police. They know the Hood Criminals have guns so being armed is important.
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan
