Ed, Hush Now

  • Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson called on state lawmakers to approve legislation to more aggressively regulate gun dealers in Illinois, pointing to a newly released trove of data that shows many guns recovered by police in connection with crimes can be traced back to licensed gun stores in the Chicago area.

    The call for legislative action came as Johnson and other advocates for stricter gun rules convened Sunday at police headquarters to highlight findings of a new report tracing so-called “crime guns” — firearms found at a shooting scene, in the possession of gang members or otherwise being used illegally — to their original point of sale.
Neither the Tribune, nor the ABC report, list the number of guns that are stolen - just that 60% come from "out-of-state," meaning that any Illinois law will be ineffective. In fact, the the Admin Fax Message board is filled with Stolen Weapon notices - non-LEO stolen guns - along with yet another stolen FBI weapon last week. The feds (FBI, ATF, other agencies) probably account for one-percent of the stolen guns circulating in Chicago, they lose that many. Hell, how many guns disappeared from that Englewood rail yard? And how many times?

The list of gun shops that end up having sold "crime guns" is amusing:
  • The report says Chuck's Gun Shop in Riverdale, Ill. and Midwest Sporting Goods in Lyons, Ill. are the top two source dealers of traced crime guns in Chicago. The remaining stores in the top ten are: Westforth Sports in Gary, Indiana, Cabela's in Hammond, Indiana, Shore Galleries in Lincolnwood, Illinois, GAT Guns in East Dundee, Illinois, Suburban Sporting Goods in Melrose Park, Illinois, Pelcher's Shooter Supply in Lansing, Illinois, Blythe's Sport Shop in Griffith, Indiana, and Sporting Arms and Supply in Posen, Illinois.
We don't think a single one of these shops has faced so much as a review of their Federal paperwork, even during the Sparklefarts administration. What does that tell you? They're following the law, period.

Shore Galleries is one of the places that most departments in northeastern Illinois recommend to their officers to buy duty weapons. We've bought at a few of those places, and we're certain they move many tens-of-thousands of guns a year. How about instead of listing how many "crime guns" are recovered in Chicago from these "point of origin" stores, the media prints how many guns total AREN'T recovered anywhere near a crime scene? That would flip the entire narrative on its head - less than 10%? Less than 5%?

How many guns from GAT Guns end up recovered in Chicago as a ratio to how many they sold? Less than 1%? While we'd love to see it as close to zero percent as possible, the fact is that if 99% or even 95% of guns aren't being used criminally, it looks to us like the system is working and may need some small tweaks.

These gun shops are only now a problem as of 2017--- it is not a coincidence that Trump is president. yeah right... hey kidney bean-- didn't the doctor tell you no heavy lifting following surgery-- lifting all that democratic water is going to rupture your wound. I give you a D for effort. All this gun violence is a reflection of your poor leadership as the supe.

When those at the top fail, they look for excuses. They never look at themselves or their failed policies. They will blame things like not enough gun control. It is a very easy target for them to blame and to try to make themselves not responsible. They call for more gun control to make it look like they are doing something. Every administration that is failing will call for more gun control. More gun control is the disease.

We like how you think, SCC...

We suggest that the gun stores targeted by this hit piece
put out the number of guns sold and the newsies or CPD
can put out the number of those guns traced back to those
gun stores actually recovered so that "We The People"
can crunch the numbers and come up with the actual
percentages instead of the bullshit statistical
misstatements of "XYZ% of guns recovered at Chicago
shooting scenes were traced back to ABC Gun Store."

Intentionally slippery premise to prop up
a false argumentation to support a bad
data set to further a bullshit narration?

Enacting "more and better laws" only punishes
lawful gun owners and does dick-all to address
the violent, death-loving culture that has destroyed
swaths of the South and West sides.

Meanwhile?
the BEE-AY-DEE M/Fers who drive Chicago's
gun-related crime, swagger with the impunity
City Hall, the court system, "The Community"
and the media have given them.

...Not a Police problem from where we stand.

Conservative estimates say there are 300 million guns in the US. That is about how many have been sold since 1970.
Considering that guns don't wear out, and we have working guns that are over a hundred years old, it is more likely there are about 500-600 million guns out there.

How many guns are used in crimes?
99% of guns are never used in crimes.

The system is an inconvenience to most law-abiding citizens, an infringement on the rights of some law-abiding who get misidentified. But it isn't even a speed bump to a criminal.

They don't give a shit, never gave a shit, and won't ever give a shit about the Law. It's just not an impediment. The only thing that is, is locking them up for long periods of time - and keeping the there.

Dollars to donuts that the criminals didn't go into the gun shop to fill out a 4473, pass a background check, come back in a few days, and pick up their firearm... Some asshole straw purchaser did it for them. Then marked it up, and sold it to the prohibited person because the penalties for that are stiff on paper, but limp dicked when it comes to Foxx filing charges.

Look at the woman from Indiana who bought 52 firearms, brought them across the state line, and resold them to the 'bangers in Chiraq. Most charges dropped, one was a misdemeanor, she got 6 months probation with "time served" credit, and did nothing.... That's no message, it's free pizza from Dart. That woman ought to have been in prison for 1000 years - that'd send a message, not 6 months w/ "time served".

Leave the legal dealers out of it - focus on the crimina.... oh never mind, this is Chiraq, and Crook County...what was I thinking?

How much more can a gun shop do other then obey the Law? The grabbers have been trying to sneak thru legislation that would close all these "non-Cabela's" type gun shops. Rock River Arms and Springfield arms negotiated an exemption for themselves, which would have screwed IL. gun owners, but the bill hasn't passed yet. Fat Head Ed is shilling for it.

Guns are not problem, I live in small Indiana town where everyone owns at least 1 gun, and guess what no shooting at all accidental or not. It's not the gun it is the person pulling trigger. Control them and problems solved, until you get the community values under control you will have the same problems. They need to see that bad decisions have very bad consequences.

A simple geography lesson would have come to the same conclusion but no "connected" people would have got paid to tell ya the closest gun stores to Chicongo end up with the most "crime guns" , and what the hell is a crime gun anyway ? Do they grow legs and arms and walk around and fire themselves ? Still takes a person who is in possession of a fire arm illegally to then use it in an illegal fashion , doesn't that make the person using the firearm responsible for what happens when they use it ? And if everything they are doing and have done is illegal then explain to me what new magic law with out any enforcement is going to "fix" this issue ?

Oh and Fat Bobble Head Kidney Bean .......Don't think anybody is going to a "gun show" in Indiana and buying a "bushel bag" of guns to bring back to your City to commit crimes , yep your following the party line but the "numbers" you love show much that's a big head bald face lie

None of this is rocket science. Use a gun or other lethal weapon in crime, automatic 15 years with on time off and no concurrent sentencing. It is not a gun problem is it is a people problem. Get the multiple offenders and gang members off streets for a long time. The simple fact is your not going to rehabilitate them so treat them accordingly.

I believe they are barking up the wrong tree. The Gun dealers are not the main problem. It is the purchasers that are the problem. Commonly referred to as "straw purchases". I believe if they look at those guns more closely, they will find a number of weapons purchased by just several individuals, who in turn, sell them to the gangs, or whomever. I believe that these persons should be charged just a the offender, who shoots someone. FYI

The laws already on the books are not enforced by Cook County judges and prosecutors. If someone legally buys a gun and gives/sells it to someone who can't own or possess a gun, then they committed a crime but that does not fit the democratic agenda so they blame it on the lawful gun stores. If someone is charged, there is no punishment.

The criminals and bad guys will do illegal shit regardless. Theft is a crime, but clothes have anti-theft devices on them, the clothes still get stolen. Cell phones have tracking devices, the stores in the hood are not supposed to sell stolen phones but they do, guns are required for the drug dealers and they do not give a fuck how they obtain these weapons. I am shocked that by now, cops are not allowed to stop random vehicles and search them. Yes that is fucking dangerous but the correct information should give the citizens a choice. You want the crime reduced, then allow us to stop cars and search them. Then the offenders punished for real. Day for day imprisonment, zero parole. Fuck you, good bye.

So if they can trace the firearm back to the store then they obviously know who purchased the firearm FROM the store. How did the firearm get to the scene of a crime? How many straw purchasers have been charged with Federal gun offenses? How many were convicted? What was their sentence? These stores are following the law, the straw purchasers are almost never charged with giving the firearms to the gang members, and the extremely rare conviction for a straw purchaser results in a slap on the hand. All smoke and mirrors.

Meanwhile in some states in the Union, a person can purchase a firearm from another person with nothing more than a few Benjamins and a handshake. States that can't match the body count of Chicago.

Here's food for thought. There is a company in the Philippines called Armscor (you may have heard of them). They specialize in the manufacture of 1911s. If you can get the proper licenses, you can start a firearm company and outsource the work to them. They'll put your trademark on them and everything.

This has created a huge pool of gunsmiths who can competently manufacture 1911 style hand guns in their home garages, and some do, without serial numbers. These are the true "ghost" guns. Sold all over the world.

Criminalize gun ownership and you can render the populace vulnerable to thugs. Then you need more control to "protect" people. Unfettered access to email, phone calls, homes, etc.

Excerpt:
Cat Back: Federal Investigation into Ford Explorer a Reminder of Progress with Carbon-Monoxide Reduction [UPDATE]
October 13, 2017 at 1:00 pm by Bengt Halvorson



UPDATE, 10/13/2017: Ford is offering to reprogram the air conditioner, replace the liftgate drain valves, and inspect some of the sealing in these 2011–2017 Ford Explorer models, over concerns about carbon monoxide (CO) levels in the cabin. Beginning later this month, Ford will mail out letters notifying North American owners of this “complimentary service” that will be offered November 1, 2017, through December 31, 2018. Owners may also call 888–260–5575 with questions. Ford points to unsealed holes from third-party equipment installation as the cause of high CO levels in Police Interceptor Utility models. It insists other Explorers from those model years are safe. “Our investigation has not found carbon-monoxide levels that exceed what people are exposed to every day,” said the company in a release. Ford has informed NHTSA of this action, but a spokesperson for the automaker clarified that it isn’t part of any deal to close the agency’s investigation.

left unprotected. You stay with Rahm until the
death. If you are not prepared to die for Rahm,
get off the detail. Guys on detail think their odds
are better vs. actual police work. Ya pays yer
money and ya take yer chances.

Shore Galleries sucks ass, Ray O'herron's and Gat Guns are the real deal.”

********

I almost agree with you completely.
Shore Gallery was okay before the old man died and his kid is a complete jerkoff.
Fat Harvey (RIP) was a good guy,,,
Inventory is down to nothing.
As stayed...Shore Galleries sucks ass...

GAT Guns for some reason is simply a shithole with plenty of shithead customers.
Snowflakes buying off brand junk his and her .380 autos in different his/her colors...
Prices are ridiculous and there’s no special police price other than a slight discount on overpriced ammunition.
And what’s with that ridiculous building? Was that a restaurant at one time or??

I’ll stick with O’Herrons, thank you.
It is a police supply business.
Everything is in stock, prices are right, building is new, clean and well organized.
Very professional, in MHO.

Stay safe, CPD.
You are appreciated by those that matter!

Last time I shot at Gats a group of gang banger look-a-likes came into the range with about 1/2 dozen semi-autos in a plastic grocery bag. They started shooting and when they were done they would carry the gun back to where the plastic chairs are and sit down waving them around.

Gats only has video to monitor the range and they dont do it very well. For duty guns they give us no discount. About the only good thing I can say about them is they are outside of Cook County even tho they probably upp their ammo prices accordingly. They sure as shit charge premium for their guns.

They aren't terrible but they aint great either. I like Ohearons, does anyone know if they give a break to retired guys?

99.9% of the time, you would have been correct. This time, you got it wrong.

There's a link to the actual report at the end of the ABC story. Looking at the actual report (which was quite obviously intended to reach a predetermined conclusion), there were two things that jumped out at me right away:

Page 9: "The vast majority of crime guns were handguns possessed by adults who were not the original purchaser of the firearm, and if arrested, were charged with illegal firearm possession" (emphasis added, the entire sentence is in bold in the original report).

If the person committing the crime wasn't the person who purchased the firearm from the gun dealer, how can they claim that the gun dealers are the problem? Oh...maybe because the gun dealers are diligent enough about straw purchases?

Page 10: "The vast majority (91.6 percent) of Chicago’s crime guns that are successfully traced back to an FFL involve someone who has only one crime gun traced back to their name as the original buyer" (bold added).

So, by their own admission, the vast majority of criminals didn't buy the guns they used at gun shops, and the vast majority of the people who DID buy the guns at gun shops aren't obvious straw purchasers.

So what problem, exactly, are they expecting to solve by adding regulations to gun shops?

I also found this contradiction to be pretty entertaining:
Page 2: "Not surprisingly, it is the very states with the least restrictive gun laws that are the sources of the guns coming into Chicago and being used to commit crimes."

Really, and which of those dastardly, weak gun law states is the number one source of crime guns traced in Chicago?

Page 8: "More than two of every five traceable crime guns recovered in Chicago originate with their first point of sale at an Illinois dealer"

Whoa, what? Illinois is the source of the largest percentage of guns used in Chicago crime? Damn those weak gun law states.

The second highest source of guns, providing just slightly more than half as many as Illinois, is Indiana. It's only coincidence that Indiana is pretty much within walking distance of Chicago...proximity can't possibly have anything to do with it...it's gotta be those weak gun laws that, strangely, don't cause Hoosiers to shoot each other at a rate several times the National Average.

I mean, I realize the Mayor's Office's entire purpose was to blame others for it's own failings in controlling crime, but could they have possibly been any more transparent about it?

Why should anyone care as long as they are keeping the killings mostly in house. Let the herd thinning continue, step back and enjoy the show.

Who will have buns when they ban guns. Only the law breakers. They don't obey any laws now what makes the stupid snowflakes they would obey tougher gun laws. Reality is they are bad people that deserve very harsh penalties up to and including death. In fact the only good gang member is a dead gang member. You'll get when one attacks you or a close family member.

Just the other day I saw two guns walking down the middle of the street in broad daylight looking for someone to shoot. I believe they walked all the way in from Indiana on their own. As they swayed through the hood and came upon a couple of hoods, the guns came on target and fired, dropping thier targets. The guns then just calmly walked away with their grips hanging low.

Come on Eddy and Rahm, stop with the gun law bullshit and the talk of guns from other states being the problem. Its the people, not the guns. Additionally, it looks like the national media cares a bit less about all of our violence in the hood.

Can we stop calling our SUP special ed, it is a diservice toall of our special needs kids.

Isn't it odd, that the guns coming from "out of state" aren't being used "out of state?" Don't they have thugs, elsewhere? BTW, Close Ties to Mississippi. So who's bringing the guns in??

More than 4,000 guns were traced to Mississippi, especially in the rural, western part of the state, more than any outside state other than Indiana. During the migration of families from the South in the 1940s and 1970s, Chicago was a top destination, according to James N. Gregory, a history professor at the University of Washington. In 1970 there were more people from Mississippi living in Illinois than in all other Southern states. Family ties may help explain why many guns bought in Mississippi end up in Chicago.
