I admit the downdings are deserved. Twice. I should have made the assertion of hypocrisy myself, and not included the gun advocacy site at all. I should have realized how unwelcome that site with it’s harsh tone would be regardless of anything else.
Second-My position on guns is one that many disagree with here.
Rather than edit now, I’ll just say I assert the hypocrisy based on his anti gun record, and disassociate my self from Gottleibs words. And re state my support for any lawful responsible citizen with reasonable levels of training to own a gun, and get a CCW permit. Trotter is a classic anti gun Chicago legislator. He is dead wrong in numerous ways on that. At some level his gun carry is a violation of his oft demonstrated wishes for the rest of us.
His quote on CCW from ‘95 is to insist on a psych review of the applicant. He has had no such evaluation. Of course that was just a poison pill he was not going to vote for CCW unless no one could qualify except perhaps himself.
