“If I Put This Up Your Butt, You’ll Find Out How Effective It Is”
Chicago’s Mayor Daley, answering a reporter’s question about the effectiveness of gun control policy:
Here’s the back story:
A reporter asked the obvious question: Given the numbers of shootings in the city, isn’t the handgun ban ineffective?
The question was more than fair. In Chicago, the only people who are confident in their 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms are the criminals, the cops and the politicians.
Law-abiding citizens can’t own handguns. They don’t have an army of bodyguards, as does Daley. Political hacks have guns. They get out the vote for his machine.
And the retired neighbor who’s never been arrested in his life? Oh, no. If he has a gun, it would be anarchy in the streets, according to Daley.
Confronted with a logical question, here’s what the mayor did: He picked up a rifle from the prop table of guns, raised it and began to babble.
“It’s been very effective,” said Daley of the handgun ban. “If I put this up your butt, you’ll find out how effective it is. Let me put a round up your, you know.”
The mayor of Chicago then went on to say if the justices were attacked by thugs with guns, they’d see things his way.
“Maybe they’ll see the light of day,” Daley said. “Maybe one of them will have an incident, and they’ll change their mind overnight, going to and from work.”
