Every law abiding, pro-gun citizen in Chicago, no,... make that in Illinois, should pack their things and move out of State. Let the State dry up. Face it, they will never get the 2nd Amendment rights they should have had already.
Oh, by the way Mr Chief Smarty pants, a concealed permit holder is not going turn toward one of your goons with a pistol in their hand in the first place.

Still, the overall reality at time of inbound LEO's arriving isn't much different anywhere else across the country. Beware what you're holding, how you're holding, move very slowly and non-threateningly, and very smoothly/slowly do everything the inbound LEO's dictate you do at the moment they direct you to do it. Same ol', same ol', for avoiding getting shot. Nothing new, here, other than Chicago PD's "newbie" status on such an environment, which will likely be "sticky" for awhile until everyone gets into the swing of things.
Let it happen ... and quickly. For every upstanding man, woman, child in Illinois.
Ya know the ONLY defense I have for Chicago is if you are single, in your early 20's till mid-late 30's or possibly older, you can drink until 5am if you like partying every now and then. I had some fun in Chicago with some friends just visiting to see a concert but would I live there? HELL NO! And it does not surprise me the Chief of Police making such a statement.
A thug with a badge is still just a thug.

It seems to me that what he was saying is his officers can't tell a cellphone or a flashlight from a gun so if people really do have guns then his officers are going to shoot more people. A preemptive CYA. Notice he didn't say if they point a gun at the officers or don't obey when told to put down the gun. Nope, all they have to do is have a gun and turn around. What if they don't hear/understand what the officer says. Properly trained, they won't point the gun at the officer but it doesn't sound like the police have any intention of letting the CHL carrier figure out what is going on before getting shot.
Just another Chicago thug......I could name so many more.
This guy is a black eye to those who serve in the LE profession, an absolute disgrace.

I think he's saying that the LEO's he's hired and the people who elected him are all morons.
Hopefully, then, NYC, Los Angeles, D.C. and other "hot" (head-in-sand) spots of almost-never-issue-CHLs will be forced to follow as well. The citizens in such places have lived with defenseless crime against them for altogether far too long. It's about bloody time they have the yoke removed from their necks, in that regard.
