Look-Alike BB-Gun Seller Busted

From the Department's website, this Alert System notification:
  • Chicago Police have cited a Northwest Side business for illegally selling BB-guns and confiscated several look-a-like firearms from the store. Divas, at 4758 W. Belmont Ave., which sells music CDs, videos and other items, was cited for not having a license to sell firearms and for illegally selling pellet- and BB-guns within the city limits.
Is anyone surprised that they managed to find a dealer who sold these guns to minors in violation of City Ordinances? Isn't this a little late? The shooting has already been ruled justified, so why are they all of the sudden cracking down? Anyone?

Another feel-good but dumb law passed by the Alder-imbeciles elected by Chicago’s ignorant voters.

How about a little parental education about Darwin’s theory instead? Making quick moves with anything that looks like a gun will get you killed quickly. Playing in traffic is dangerous. Bad heroin might kill you. Street gangs can be a hazardous to your health.

A "look-alike" gun with a bright orange plug stiking out of the barrel is not a look-alike gun.

Anyway, you can count on the press for not getting the facts staight. This sounds suspiciaously like a "soft pellet" gun--pretty harmless.

Big brother is getting sillier by the minute.

Its obvious to me why theyre cracking down
1 to prevent another kid from getting aBB gun and getting shot
2 to appease the community who doesnt take responsibility for itself, by shifting the blame on the store owner and not the robbery offender

to doubter, I guess you never saw the news reports about the companies that offer a special coating for real guns in any color you want, including safety orange, any real gun can be made to look like a toy gun with this proceedure, so once again, main point is, point what looks to be a gun at the police, expect to get shot

Lets get this out there, this was no 017 TACT arrest for the so called BB guns....this was a 017 BURGLARY MISSION team arrest. I work 017 tact, so please dont associate this 'Newsworthy' arrest with the 017 district tact team. Grant it its good after the situation in 018, but if you knew this women who made the news, its a BS pinch, just like all of hers.....Save the 15 minutes of fame for something news worthy, and not for a so-called BB gun arrest, when it looked like some neon orange 'soft-pellets' on the news last night! 017 Tact is nowhere near praising ourselves for this pinch...no more details her to give out!!!STAY SAFE!!!

This sounds like a big job for the Area 2 Gun Team! Those nasty air-soft jobs need to be removed from our streets!

Felony UUW arrests (well almost!)with lots of commendations and ribbons for our heroes!

God save the King and his Area Two Gun Taem!

the 017th dist burglary team wrote an ANOV to the owner. they didnt pinch him. let's get that straight. let's put ourselves on the news so we get credit for something that happened in 16 in the first place. those girls have never even caught a burglar!!!! and they are a on a burglary team. they are a joke . 017th dist 3rd watch guess she can pat herself on the back now. b.s. ANOV is what it was.

NO, I never saw that, but I agree completely with your main point, just don't know how you got there.

You would paint a real gun to look like a fake gun so you could do what-commit an un-robbery?

Maybe you thought I was disagreeing with Crimefile, but his post wasn't up when I posted. He's got it right.

You mean if I write an ANOV, I can get on the news? On TV? Reporters fawning all over me? I can hold my own news conference?

I didn't realize that when I wrote all those books of ANOVS at Wrigley last year. I coulda been a star. I coulda been a contender.
Stellllllllllllllaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Why all the haters?
Nobody else could figure out it was a newsworthy event?
A little good police press goes along way.
By the way, the girls ran into a burning building and evacuated it today. Got a litlle smoke, got some oxygen from the firemen and didn't hit the IOD like alot of you goofs would!
Oh and they will probably get a better furlo than our 017th district Tact ranger too.
