Daley's Wild West

  • A shootout at a jewelry store during an attempted armed robbery left four people shot -- including the two would-be robbers -- in the Marquette Park community on the Southwest Side Wednesday evening.

    No charges have been filed as of early Thursday and the two attackers are hospitalized.

The third person shot seems to have been a jewelry store worker; the fourth, a driver in a car outside NOT involved with the robbery. Anyone want to lay money on whether of not Daley claims this is exactly why we can't have guns on the streets? Innocent people get shot and won't someone think of the children?

Here's a fact buried near the end of the story you'll never hear any of the gun grabbers talk about though:
  • Police recovered three guns on the scene...
Three guns. If the store owner only had one gun, where did the other two come from? After all, aren't handguns still outlawed in Chicago? It certainly isn't possible that two individuals bent on committing a breach of Illinois law would dare to carry unlicensed unregistered handguns into a place of business, is it?

If this store owner didn't have a gun, would we be reading another story about how police investigating a "check the well being" call at a local jewelry store found the owner and two workers bound together and shot in the head at close range? Small comfort. Good thing this guy had a gun.

2 bad guy walked in with a .45 and announce the stick-up; the two employees of the store each pull a pistol and the el shootout starts... poor planning on the bad guys part...they had to get buzzed in and out of the jewelery store and had no way out as they were getting thier ass kicked.... classic! One employee was hit in the leg, both stick-up guys are critical....poor slob at the red light out side took a stray round to the face.... 'but he ok'... a video of this would be priceless!

All store owners should have guns? How about all lawful citizens should have guns? Or not - their choice. But the option should be open. I also think the registration system should go away. I've already burned $80 in that bottomless hole on one gun over 4 years.

Can any of you cops tell us, how many crimes have been solved with that registry?

Asshat Daley and family has armed servant/bodyguards surrounding him 24/7 365 days a year. Of course he doesn't give a shit if a citizen or business man gets his shit blown away. As long as he's safe he and his family are safe he could give a shit about anyone else. Kudos to the jewelry store owner. I just wished he would have spent a little more time at the range. The outcome might have been much nicer.

The bad guys were unarmed. The store owner put drop guns on them after cheating them on some jewelry they had bought. Most of these little shops pay you 10 cents on the dollar, but sell it at a higher mark up. The so-called bad guys were just trying to be right.

48 other states have Concealed Carry or Will Issue laws in effect. No blood baths, no road rage, no major incidents.

Also, no skyrocketing crime rate.

So your reason for banning guns is what again? What genetic defect do Illinoisans and Chicagoans have that would suddenly fill them with bloodlust should they be exercise a Constitutional Right?

Or do you just hate white, black and brown people?

We don't have a handgun ban in Oklahoma, in fact we have "shall issue" concealed handgun licenses, and our streets don't run red with innocent people's blood. Of course, our crime rate is nothing like Chicago's either.

All I'm saying is that it is the not the law-abiding citizens that cause trouble, so disarming them and preventing them from defending themselves effectively is counterproductive.

Ok, maybe we have some good supervisors. But what about 008 being the largest and most populated district along with the biggest back-logs in the city. The 10 sector dog ass, do-nothing cry babies (811, 815, 813, 858) that do nothing but make life harder for every other beat car.
And what about that coward (Eric C.) in the 20 sector that almost gets coppers hurt every night he works with his calling in loud reports every fucking night to fireworks. This pussy tries to show off to his young female PPO's by getting in foot chases. Maybe the PPO's could teach you how to cuff an offender, bitch. Then he gets in foot pursuits with 9 year olds playing tag and doesnt give a slow down or disregard until every fucking car in the district shows up. He won't stop a real ghetto rat because they scare him. Secret is out, E.C., everybody knows that you are a pussy. Now quit your pussy nonsense and get back to the desk.
In summary, 008 would be the best district to work in if we get some decent coppers to work the 10 sector protecting where the police live and if Eric C. brings his fat ass back to a desk job. Peace, I'M OUT.

According to most cops, people can't have guns. Ever notice that on domestics, cops always ask about guns in the house? Old lady is mad and tells, so cops steal the guns because they're not registered or no FOID card. Registration and FOID cards just seem to be an illegal tax on a right.

Dope rip! has dope written all over it. Chicago is very "dry" of cocaine presently. It may be because of political troubles in Mexico that are preventing shipments of coke to USA, maybe enhanced enforcement at the borders ... several large seizures recently ... CCSPD hit 250 kilos last Saturday ... the streets are definitely effected by this. kilos were about $21,000 six months ago, they are about $26,000 - $28,000 now.

I'd say the jewelry store was the "safe house" with armed security and a couple of entrepreneuers decided to "strap up and stick up"

No facts to back this up...just thinking out loud!

So let me get this straight. It's illegal to have a gun in your home or on your person in Chicago unless you are a cop, alderman, or the mayor (because the two latters are considered "peace officers"). Guns are too dangerous for me to keep in my home, and yet some how cops, who are also human just like me, seem to manage to keep guns around their families with no incident. I can have a long gun, which is impractical to clear tight hallways with and is more easily taken from me in a CQ confrontation than a handgun would be, but I have to pay to register it and keep up on the paperwork, or the cops will come to my house and seize it.

And yet, I can purchase a handgun out of county or under the table on the street, kill an asshole trying to steal my TV at 1am, and be okay..even if I do not have a FOID?! Does that even make sense!?

We should just do away with firearms laws in IL except for a background check at purchase, and a permit for concealed carry that requires qualification, but a reasonable fee. Who gives a shit if I have an AK at my home. I'm not committing a crime until I use it to commit a felony. Inanimate objects don't cause crime!
