    My letter that went to the Chicago Tribune today:

    "Sen. Trotter trying to get on a plane with a weapon is Chicago hypocrisy at its best. A city-based state legislator, who regularly votes with the anti-gun crowd on legislation like Illinois gun regulations and concealed carry, has been exposed. Sen. Trotter can carry a gun, but the rest of you, the great unwashed, are denied that right. He forgot he was carrying it after working the night shift at a security company. I never forget where ANY of my guns are, and if I were earning somewhere in the vicinity of $200K per year, I doubt if Id be working night shift security - unless I wanted an excuse to be carrying a gun. This story stinks on several levels and Id rather not have Donne Trotter occupying a Federal legislative position."

    I love that he got caught. I hate that he will get away with it. And you know that he will!

    Tonight I will dream that he is prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Tomorrow I will wake up and face reality.

    By definition my country now calls me a radical

    Typical "do as I say not as I do" politician who is above the law. Unfortunately he will get away with it. I can picture his conversation with the investigators..."so I was working security last night wink wink. And by the way how do you feel about your property taxes? Surely you're paying too much. Let me look into that."

    So you don't care about equality under the law?

    Under the law? Sure, but not equality in my mind. As a private citizen I can hate anyone I want and I can hope he gets on of the judges that hate guns and would punish anyone with a gun.

    Well I'm willing to bet that if he receives as much flak from the public as Bob Costas did, there's a chance that he'll resign. Unrelenting ridicule and public humiliation seems to be the best tool for making people step down when no morals are there as legs to stand on and a logical defense can't be made. Ehh never mind, it's Chicago. That's what fuels them.

    Well there's hope #2 I guess. Maybe it will shed some light on the issue and the people, (we know it won't be the politicians) will be made more aware of the existence of something called the freedom of self protection and would be willing to stand up and fight for it.

    IDK. Outside of the gun community this is getting no publicity. I'll go out on a limb and predict the charge will be downgraded to a misdemeanor (if not dropped entirely). Trotter will spend 0 days in jail. In January he'll be in DC as an vocal advocate of Federal gun control laws. I have no doubt he'll still own and carry guns. Gun laws are for the commoners not politicians.

    And that right there is what should cause an outrage. It's only what is accepted and is absolutely the opposite of what 2A stands for.

    Chicago Anti-gun politician arrested

    Hmm... I suspect it was plated and from a Pawn Shop. Maybe a "Saturday Night Special"? Remember those? They were the Assault Weapons of the '70s.
