The mayor, who was raised and lives protected every minute of every day by men with guns, is in the Sun Times Friday
, making fun of Fred Thompson for campaigning at gun shows:
Mayor Daley ridiculed Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson on Thursday for strutting his stuff -- and showing off his "machoism" -- by campaigning at gun shows.
Daley said there should be a national debate about gun violence. It should be at the forefront of the presidential debate among Daley's fellow Democrats and among Republicans now consumed by the war in Iraq, he said.
Actually Mayor, there has been a national debate about guns in recent years. And if we're reading the results correctly, you guys lost:
- 90 million gun owners in the USA
- they own some 250 million guns
- more than 40 states have some form of Concealed Carry or shall-issue laws.
And of those 90 million gun owners, 36 million identify themselves as Republican. Then throw in a few million independents and your red-dog democrats. Correct us if we're wrong, but didn't 50 million votes pretty much win the presidency last election? Thompson is campaigning where the votes are Mayor - kind of like you do in the churches and graveyards across the City.
And if the Supreme Court strikes down Washington DC's gun ban, we hope Fred will be here, campaigning among all the new gun owners in Chicago.
