"Representative" Guns

  • Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy held a news conference Monday where his department “put on display several of the firearms seized … during the first two weeks of 2013,” according to a police news release.

    But that wasn’t exactly the case.

    A police spokeswoman said McCarthy had hoped to display 25 weapons from among the more than 300 seized since Jan. 1 — but in fact the ones shown were from last year. Some dated from last summer, according to inventory tags on the weapons.

    Reporters attending the news conference at the Gresham Police District station, 7808 S Halsted St., noticed the inventory tags, and McCarthy was asked about them. He said the guns weren’t the actual ones seized in 2013, but were “representative” of them.
Busted!

As posted here in numerous comment sections, theses photo ops are almost always staged. Staged with the same guns, over and over and over. Some reporter finally looked at the inventory tags and noticed they didn't match the story being told. The article closes with this whopper:
  • Police spokeswoman Melissa Stratton said the department had intended to show this year’s seizures, but the firearms weren’t inventoried in time. The weapons shown “match the guns that we took off the street” in characteristics like maker and caliber, she said.

    The spokeswoman said future news conferences are expected to display the guns confiscated in the periods addressed.
"...weren't inventoried in time"? That's a violation of General Order seeing as how all property seized must be inventoried by the end of the officer's tour of duty. You think that coppers are just allowed to leave guns lying around district stations until they get around to inventorying them?

As to the future gun displays - they just won't have dated inventory tags or the reporters won't be allowed to approach the display tables. But it'll be the same guns as last time.

Isn't it interesting as well that all of the guns were assault rifles, high capacity clips, or automatic weapons? Exactly the kind of firearms that are being targeted by Raum and the sup. odd since most weapons taken on the streets and those used in shootings are handguns.

Oh no we don't have time to inventory the guns. But we have PLENTY of time looking up what make and characteristic and cal. the guns were and time to search for ones that look just like the ones we have.

P.S make sure you find the scariest looking ones.

Saw an interview on a news show with the Mayor of Newark Corey Booker. Topic being gun control. It was a liberal show with all liberal guests. Booker explains how he isnt worried about legally owned guns or assualt weapons. Because not one of those were responsible for any murders in his town. Too bad the idiot we got from Newark doesnt share his opinions with the black mayor from the town he used to be police chief in.

What ever came of that gun "found" by Stuporintendent Gun Magnet at the liquor store in 011, 015(?).

You remember that one, dontcha?

GM-Squared and his entourage, while enroute to blow some more smoke up the ass of a local media outlet, just so happen to cross paths with some suspicious perps exiting a liquor establishment.

The perps are stopped, searched and sent on their way (WITHOUT the almighty Contact Cards being completed from all indication - for shame!) before the Gun Magnet does what he does best - finds a pistol. Only this pistol is sans magazine or ammunition. Hhhhmmmmm....

He then directs his driver to pawn off the documentation and inventory of said weapon at the district desk while he greets the media whores curbside. Driver produces said pistol from his waistband (so much for preservation of evidence) and says something to the effect of "the Superintendent needs this gun inventoried", and relays the entire story to officers working the desk.

Desk personnel smell a rat, and press the driver for particulars: were the guys stopped contact-carded? Were they thoroughly searched? Did the liquor store have surveillance? Was the store thoroughly searched for the magazine to the weapon? Doesn't he find it funny that the gun was empty? Did he or the Supe retrieve business license information? Call a district beat car to document the incident or notify field Lieutenant per protocol? Why wasn't the ET requested to process/recover the weapon?

A few more questions and the Supe's driver reportedly gave up and pawned off the entire "investigation" to a tact team happy to both pad their stats and bask in the presence of McTootMyOwnHornForTheMedia.

So now The Great White Dope gets caught in yet another lie. Ironically outed as a fraud by the same soulless media that put him on a pedestal for his Oscar-worthy NATO performance. We know Garry carries 9-Point-5's water, but how much embarrassment is one tyrant to tolerate before he cuts his losses?

Tick Tock, Garry.

GET READY FOR GOVERNMENT BY IMPERIAL DECREE -- OBAMA "LOOKING FOR THINGS HE CAN DO ON HIS OWN" ABOUT SO-CALLED "GUN VIOLENCE"

News report just now. "Announcement to be made in a few days."

The NRA has gained about 100,000 members in the past few weeks, gun stores can't keep any stock in the cases...and Obama knows he's sliding.

One day, he spoke of using Executive Orders -- and the next day he very publicly signed off on lifetime Secret Service protection for himself.

Increasingly obvious what we're faced with.

Parallel story -- El jefe Antonio Villaraigosa of El ciudad de Los Angeles has picked up the "we can't wait another minute" rhetoric of the gun banners, and is yelling for every illegal in the US to be made a citizen, quick, quick, quick. Obama agrees, and things are moving really fast there as well.

Missouri is following the lead of Wyoming lawmakers, who have taken up a measure that says states’ rights for its citizens to bear arms cannot be taken away by the federal government. Guernsey says his bill says it is unlawful for Missouri authorities or firearms dealers to enforce any federal law relating to a personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition. Wyoming’s “Firearms Protection Act” bill would make any federal law banning semi-automatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries. Guernsey’s bill is modeled after that state’s legislation.

“This bill specifies that it is unlawful for any officer or employee of the state or any political subdivision, or any licensed federal firearms dealer to enforce, or attempt to enforce, any federal law relating to a personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition that is owned or manufactured in this state and remains exclusively within the boundaries of the state,” Guernsey said in an e-mail. “Any federal official who enforces, or attempts to enforce, any such federal law or order will be guilty of a class D felony. The Attorney General may defend any citizen in violation of any such federal order. Further, any federal law or order created or effective after January 1, 2013, is unenforceable in the state if it attempts to ban or restrict ownership of a semi-automatic firearm or any magazine or require any to be registered in any manner. The bill does contain an Emergency Clause.

They are so stupid but the media is also to blame for this. They accept an answer that was given by mcdoofus, then they accept an answer given by someone else(the guns not being inventoried on time). As we all know, all court proceedings have to be over before guns, dope or what ever else is inventoried can be released unless it was marked disposed by custodian, then maybe it could be released. But those guns still have to be delivered to forensics to be tested. So it's going to be several months before any gun can be released. And it doesn't matter if it's a weapon turn in, found weapon or what ever the circumstances are the guns still have to be tested. Only in this city they get away with such stupidity.

They threw an old desk and chair and some papers inside the offices and then claim that's where they negotiate fuel purchases from.

Which by the way cheats Cook County and Chicago out of millions of dollars in taxes on said fuel purchases.

Funny thing is no-one has seen anyone in the office or coming and going to it.

Not to mention the gun 'buybacks' that are a waste of time and another dog and pony show. From USA Today 2 days ago:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/01/12/gun-buybacks-popular-but-ineffective/1829165/

Gun buybacks popular but ineffective, experts say
Dan Horn, The Cincinnati Enquirer11:15a.m. EST January 13, 2013
Buyback campaigns more often than not end up with hunting rifles or old revolvers from someone's attic than with automatic weapons that criminals might use, analysts say.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
• Government estimates more than 310 million guns in U.S.
• On the positive side, buybacks raise awareness, rally community
• Researchers say money for buybacks better spent elsewhere
CINCINNATI -- The rifles, pistols and shotguns always look impressive when they're displayed at news conferences celebrating the end of gun buyback campaigns.
Spread across tables or piled high into overflowing stacks, all those weapons reinforce the notion that trading cash for guns works. It gets guns off the street, organizers say, and makes the city safer.
The problem, according to years of research, is that it does neither.

barrels go from 24" to a "possible" 6.5 with average of 16"or so
also who would lug a thing around weighing in 5.5 lbs on up to 8.5 lbs +kind of hard to keep under a coat
it was "drama" pure and simple
after all a glock type weighs in at 2lbs or so total length 6"+ and 5" high and WILL fit under a coat being a 1"+ wide thin
and of course being able to hold 30 rounds + with the average of 15 or so far better choice
as west side pointed out
what happened to the two guns the streetlightmarksman "found"?
you think they would be framed and on a alter some place
with his ego i'm sure he would never let the press forget
BUT that doesn't play into their scheme of things

I am glad to hear it. I just signed up a moment ago, too.

I've never owned a gun and never before considered NRA membership. But the so-called gun "debate" is emerging more and more as a government power grab to take away our rights as citizens.

Oh no we don't have time to inventory the guns. But we have PLENTY of time looking up what make and characteristic and cal. the guns were and time to search for ones that look just like the ones we have.

P.S make sure you find the scariest looking ones.

I swear....

1/15/2013 12:15:00 AM

Yeah, plenty of time go through all the weapons and put the "scariest" guns out there. Hell, with all the lying going on I'm sure some of thoes guns were recovered many years ago. Maybe some are even department guns or SWAT guns put out there just to make it look good. This crew is capeable of anything.

Assault weapons are the first step on the slippery slope that the socialists/democratic party want to take this country onto.

After they get our assault weapons banned, the next step will be the handguns, rifles and shotguns.

We need to do just rename these weapons so that the bleeding hearts aren't afraid of them: how about, "defensive" weapons?

I don't care what we call them as long as we get to keep them.

The Second Amendment must not be watered down.

What is really amazing is that a reporter took the time to look at the inventory slip. When I first saw the news showing these weapons I smelled a rat. The only way weapons like this were all recovered in the first ten days of this year is if someone's collection was confiscated. I would be willing to bet that if 300 weapons were actually recovered during this period 99% were handguns. The firearms section at Homan is probably at least one month behind in testing recovered weapons due to the fact that they are short handed too so anything inventoried this year is probably sitting there untested right now. The sad truth is that this clown has made a once proud department a laughing stock to the rest of the country.

"Obama will be issuing an Executive order about Federal firearms rules."

* New York State has just passed extremely stupid gun laws -- ban on patrol rifles ("assault weapons") but can keep ones already owned if "registered," magazine capacities reduced from 10 to 7 rounds!!!, and some nebulous "mental health workers" mandated to tell the state if they think someone "may become violent."

Under New York State law -- which McCarthy has been using as a model for what he demands here -- he's not "may become violent."

McCarthy is a KNOWN POLICE FIGHTER.

Between this and the often-mentioned presence of alcohol and the discharge of firearms, and having to be disarmed and handcuffed by police, there is no way this individual should be carrying a gun.

Dear Newtown parents --

I am so sorry for your loss.

You need to take some time for yourselves.

We don't even know exactly what happened yet. It is not necessary for you to be at meetings "deciding whether the school should be remodeled."

Everything is so rushed, so forced today. This is not fair to you.

It is not obligatory for you to instantly form a ready-packaged organization that, like 100,000 others, has a logo of multicolored hands, and a web site, and ribbons to wear...who came up with all of this cookie-cutter-identical material so fast?

The "corporate promotions" warehouses are full of this stuff -- I suspect that that has more to do with it than anything one finds historically in American culture.

The organization seems to have a motto of "Someone has to do something about something but we don't know what."

Of course you don't.

Who would?

Don't be be forced into someone else's mold. Don't be pressured to perform for the media or special interest groups. They may have to be ready to go on the air at 5 PM, but you do not. Their priorities are not your priorities.

You have your own emotions. You do not need to act as a lightning rod for other people's; that's a lot of work.

Take the time for yourselves. Go sit with a friend and get coffee and talk. We don't want to see you for a year or so, OK?

And that's exactly why McBarstool shouldn't have expected to trot out the last 2 weeks worth of guns. First of all - the firearms section needs to deal with them. They are backed up. Fact. And so why would you put the most recently seized guns out, compromising their value in court? Stratton proved herself to be an idiot - the guns were inventoried. They simply haven't been processed yet. Big difference.

question from a troll: The Federal 7th Circuit has ruled that those mud rats in Springfield have to craft a CCW law within 180 days. If they fail to do so which is likely since they fail at everything else, can he hold them in contempt of court at the end of the 180 days? If they are in contempt, can he lock up the entire legislature for a period of time at his descretion for contempt of court? If not, what exactly is the penalty for contempt of his court order? Does anyone know? I am thinking of a different version of the hypocratic oath doctors take. If the legislature is locked up on a contempt citation, they would do no harm. I would find such a situation amusing, the longer they are locked up the better.
