    And, anti-gunner to the last ...

    The Emanuel Administration also is proposing “Safe Zones” on and around buses and trains.

    The bill would increase jail time and fines for the use of illegal firearms there.

    As a city, we have a responsibility to protect riders of buses and trains, especially the many students who rely on the CTA as a key mode of transportation, from the dangers of gun violence. I am very pleased the Public Safety Committee has taken the next step in creating new Public Transportation Safety Zones and increasing penalties for serious weapon and gun-related offenses near bus stops, bus shelters and El stations and on buses and trains,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement.


    Funny, but I thought the CHL statutes were there to ensure citizens had the ability to protect themselves. It's not as though waggling a nanny finger at upstanding citizens is going to keep an armed felon from coming aboard public transit. If anything, criminalizing otherwise lawful carry will simply help ensure criminals find zero citizens capable of effectively withstanding violent predation when it does occur.

    I can't either ......why am I suspicious that when it is voted on and signed into law it will more resemble an "end around" the carry laws and state laws?

    Well, with bans around buses, around trains, around schools, at anyplace with a "No Guns" sign, at any employer's property or parking lot with such policies/signs, and any and all city/state/fed buildings and premises ... that'll pretty much mean only felons and non-traveling citizens (or walkers) will be armed. Perhaps that's just what they want.

    Nothing "anti-gun" surprises me out of Chicago. Should not surprise anyone else.

    I'm surprised it is not MORE strict than it will be. That's Chicago for you.

    Yes, because the criminals are very worried about making it illegal to shoot someone near a bus. Sure this will drive the crime rates down.

    Wait, laser sights are banned?

    Well, God forbid someone actually hit what they're aiming at. I guess dead bystanders are better than dead criminals in Chicago...

    Remember the film ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK? Perhaps we should just build a giant wall around Chicago because it's already just a giant prison filled with criminals...
    A prison to those who live there and criminals being both the lawless and lawmaking!

    This may be a step forward but as history has shown, two backward steps will follow. For me, any anti-gun effort pushes me to stay away and not spend any money.

    - What's the point of increasing penalties if they continue to drop firearms charges like they currently do?
