The Firing Line

The long reach of NYC influence

Uploaded on March 02, 2013

Only in the Windy City of Chicago, Illinois can a completely inept set of politicians like Jesse Jackson Jr. and Sandra Jackson be replaced by a New York City super-PAC backed candidate advocating even stricter gun control laws.

Yes friends, Mayor Michael Bloomberg's PAC spent over $2 million dollars backing Democrat Robin Kelly. Why? Because the leading contender, Debbie Halvorson, also a Democrat, did not favor gun control measures in this highly visible contest highlighting corrupt behavior from Illinois politicos.

Living in a city with some of the most ridiculous regulations on firearms is difficult enough without the likes of Mike Bloomberg peddling his own personal agenda.

The long reaching influence of New York City is now spreading its way across the Midwest. My only question is: Where is next?

Any City that elected Rahm Emanuel deserves it's fate. Since you live in Chicago you might approach your Alderman and propose that money collected from Red Light Cameras be used for Gun Buy Backs. that might slow down restrictions on gun ownership. By the way, what is the money from Red Light Cameras used for now?

I obviously don't support the sentiments of the writer. Some things to ponder. The NRA spent zero dollars in this fight. So you had 2 million versus a not so strong candidate. And still the pro gun rights candidate garnered 25% in a very heavily Democratic district in a vote amongst Democrats.

I move that Chicago become a separate state so the rest of Illinois can get on with a relatively normal life. This is ridiculous!
