As you, I don't doubt he is capable of saying something like that, but I can not find the name of the radio show, or

I just googled his name using Google News for the past week. It only returns stories which contain no specifics.
no name of the show; no date of interview; no location; and no exact quote.
Yesterday we had someone attribute something to Thomas Jefferson and one of our other participants posted a
link that demonstrated old Tom never said any such thing.
Skepticism is needed.

The name of the radio show is apparently "Connected to Chicago" and it airs on 89 WLS on Sunday mornings. I have not heard the audio but the reporters name who did the story is Bill Cameron. Mr. Cameron is also the host the of the show. The pod cast is not yet available and I have not yet been able to find the audio of the interview. I will with hold judgement until I hear it, but knowing Chief McCarthy's record and from what I have been able to find on this particular matter, it appears that McCarthy did in fact say what he is accused of.
89 WLS - Connected to Chicago with Bill Cameron
Also, I would not be surprised or skeptical of anything that comes out of a Chicago Politician's mouth.

The Second Amendment is a Danger to Politicians that want total control of your mind and your soul so they can run over you with their leftist agenda.
.....my Glocks says: Not happening.
.....my Remington 870 says: I concur
.....my Sub 2000 says: Amen
.....Florida Sheriffs say: Chicago?....what do they know about guns? Come on down to Sunny Florida, but be nice while you're here. Guns? We all got 'em
and we don't take crap off anyone from North of the Mason Dixon line. Y'all come back now.
Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

Chicago has a long and lurid history of corrupt, sold out officials. Nothing has changed. Unfortunately some of them have apparently moved to places like New York, Colorado, California etc.

The crack is getting to McCarthy. He needs to stay out of the evidence locker.

Maybe somebody better hold him to his oath of office........Oath of Office
I (state your name), do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, and defend them against enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge, the duties of a peace officer, to the best of my ability, so help me God.

Here are the exerpts from the show. These are in qoutes indicating what he actually said. The linked article in the OP says that McCarthy "expressed" this or that, not direct qoutes:
89 WLS - Top Cop is on the attack against gun rights groups
Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy is on the attack against gun rights groups who oppose new gun control, and he launched the attack here at WLS.
Taping Connected to Chicago for Sunday morning at 7, Superintendent McCarthy came up with a novel new way to try to accuse gun rights groups of corruption.
"If there was special interests affecting police work, I believe that would be called corruption. So, if it has do with donating money versus a popular vote, I think we have a bigger problem in this country and somebody's gotta wake up to that," said McCarthy.
In response to the question, are gun rights groups somehow corrupting public safety, McCarthy had this to say, "Well, how is it that they're controlling politicians. How are they controlling elected officials? It's not by popular vote."
Gun rights groups deny they're corrupt. They argue they're simply petitioning government to protect the 2nd Amendment.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Of course it does. That's not what I'm talking about. Those same officials that get driven through the Chicago democrat machine are usually very politically astute and smooth operatives. Very seldom do you find verbal mistakes from them.

sounds more like to me chicago and its way of dealing with
crime is failing

What can you expect from a political appointee?
So the 2A only applies to smooth bore guns? Does he intend to turn in his departments guns, since there were no police departments when the 2A was penned? Does he also feel the 1A only applies to the written word, or at best hand set printing presses? Chicago, like NYC and most of Southern CA are lost causes. Pull the plug and let them rot in their own corruption.
