  1. ArmaLite, Springfield Armory, RRA, and LMT have been prodded to leave Illinois for years. Les Baer has already crossed the river to Iowa. Emanuel may succeed where others have failed.

  2. When you’ve governed as corruptly as Chicago Dems where they are still shearing the sheep, they don’t want armed sheep that will eventually figure out what’s going on.

  3. This is the Chicago Way. Only the Democrat Drug Gangs have guns in Chicago. Chicago can’t even close underused schools to provide better resources to the education environment because Emanuel fears that kids crossing gang boundaries will get murdered. Who is running Chicago?

    • This is just one story that made ripples recently:

      The gist of it is that the local mob visited the new construction site for the new Pete’s supermarket and they said, “Hire us”. The site manager said something about competition but nonetheless offered them application forms to fill. The response was a display of guns and “You either do as told, or you’re outta here”. The same day, the Chicago Public Health inspector shows up and cites Pete’s for more than 20 safety violations, shutting down the construction. Who’s running Chicago? It’s running on its own.

  4. Firearms are a great investment at the moment. If they lose bank credit let’s get together a credit union for them. They would pay better interest than the bank, and I suspect the money would be more secure, both from bankruptcy and robbery.

  5. When we reflect on Rahm Emmanuel’s distaste for liberty and success, and his abject failure to salvage Chicago, we can take heart knowing that his protege is president.

  6. I haven’t seen full numbers for 2012 yet, but based on recent years, and Chicago’s 500 murders in 2012, I say confidently that over 5% of the nation’s homicides by firearm discharge were in Chicago.

    Emanuel telling other people what they ought to be doing is chutzpah.

  7. These days, having a gun factory is probably the same as simply printing dollar bills.
