Rahm Emanuel's Handgun Bill: More Money Grubbing or A Nazi Tactic?

Rahm Emanuel's Handgun Bill: More Money Grubbing or A Nazi Tactic?

I would hate to think that the Jewish Mayor of Chicago would stoop so low as to using Nazi tactics in order to stifle law-abiding citizens of Illinois from invoking their Constitutional Right to Bear Arms. But, the fact remains - he has been able to ram his gun bill proposal through Springfield with such speed you begin to wonder what sort of an alliance has been made between the Demi-Crooks of Illinois. I mean - ever since Rahm Emanuel has been elected Mayor of Chicago he has been able to do damn near anything he wants without so much as real opposition. What is this new game they are playing?

It was no secret that Rahm Emanuel always coveted being Mayor but this dictator of Illinois shit has to go. Funny thing too, because I never thought for a moment that so many of our "looking out for themselves" politicians would let him do so without so much as a whimper. I don't know but it kind of reminds you of all the neighborhood mutts trying to sniff the backside of a prized Poodle to curry favor for the upcoming mating season.

Then again, maybe Rahm Emanuel's misguided gun bill is just another way to fleece Illinoisans out of more money. After all, Rahm Emanuel has turned out to be one hell of a money grubbing motherfu$ker - shh shut your mouth - just talkin' about Shaft, I mean Rahmbo man.

Money, money, money!

What is it with this guy's affinity and love for gathering in the bucks anyway?

But for a guy who is supposedly very smart, he is actually pretty stupid or smoking some really powerful weed if he thinks that the gang-bangers are gonna be coughing-up a fee to register their illegally gotten guns.

Now that is a real laugher!

Seriously, though. The only ones who would be hurt by Rahmbo's handgun bill will be the law-abiding citizens of Illinois. And let's not forget another important fact - what he is proposing is akin to imposing a Jim Crow Poll Tax on the people and any politician who is dumb enough to go along with him deserves to lose when up for reelection. And you can bet that downstate Democrats will be put into that position should they gamble and go along with the dictator. Downstaters will just not tolerate this affront.

Buy hey, let's say this Nazi tactic and/or the latest money grubbing thing goes through; I can see many, many people refusing to comply with that new law, even if that means putting themselves on the same side of the law as the gang-bangers. And given the fact that the US Supreme Court has already shot down former Mayor Daley's attempt at gun control and stated that a resident does, in fact, have the right to possess a gun in their home - well you can just bet that people will take the risk and worry about a judges ruling after that burglar gets shot dead.

And you know what? I wouldn't blame them because we all have the right to protect our lives, liberty and property!

Besides, there is this little thing about trying to enact new law after the fact. Since Illinois already has a requirement for gun owners to register for a Firearms Owners Identification Card in order to possess, purchase or even get ammo - this attempt clearly shows an attempt to circumvent existing law. And adding what amounts to a poll tax after the people have already complied with all previous requirements, well let's just say this will be headed to Federal Court where Illinois judges cannot interfere.

Those who believe that what Rahmbo is trying to do is about saving innocent children from being shot - well you better think again. We already know that the gang-bangers will not ever abide by any gun law and that they will always have access to guns. It has always been an issue of illegal possession versus legal possession - PERIOD! Unfortunately Rahm Emanuel, like his predecessor, doesn't want to put the proper resources out on the streets to combat an out of control gang problem. Then again that would probably stifle a few Chicago aldermen who have been known to have ties with those gangs in their wards and who themselves carry concealed weapons. Talk about the hypocrisy!

Beware folks - this sort of thing has been on the liberal agenda for a very, very long time. And when you add in the fact that Illinois politicians have been slowly stripping away the peoples rights for quite some time while enhancing theirs - well, don't blame me that you weren't warned. After all Chicago's loyal Democratic voters have been blindly following an ideology that has done nothing but screwed them repeatedly. And if those loyal Democrats in gang-infested neighborhoods tell us their lives are better under their Machine Politicians - then they get what they deserve.

Remember this too, the Democrats have already assured themselves a 4-3 majority on the State Supreme Court and as such, Chicago Democrats will always dictate what is what and what isn't. Please click on this link to learn how Illinois violates Federal Law regarding the election of Supreme Court Justices and how it maintains that majority.

As for the question of Rahm Emanuel's gun bill being a Nazi Tactic or simply a money grubbing thing - well folks - it is both.

Sadly, law-abiding citizens should be concerned that Rahm Emanuel's handgun bill has cleared a House Committee. A committee that is legendary and well known more for burying good legislation than ever trying to enact it!

And if you ask me that sounds a lot like something out of Nazi Germany!

  • Why has Rahm gotten what he wants so quickly at the state level: RahmMadiQuinn, the triune junta that runs the Illinois Combine which mows over the people.

    Whether RMQ gets more money from these "licenses" or more control, it does not matter. One is as good as the other. Both are great.

    And... RMQ were duly elected. Do not look for any real opposition. Some like to have the work of deciding lifted from their shoulders.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    Richard, I see you understand the situation completely. Thanks for the great comment.

  • First, given Emanuel's family background, I don't think that the Nazi comment was appropriate.

    If you go to the Windy City YR of Tuesday, you'll see my view of his moneygrubbing, including the point I made there and on the CTA Tattler, that while Madigan and Cullerton can block reforms, they need the help of suburban legislators to get any revenue bill through. They were strong-armed on the RTA tax and willing dupes on the income tax hike, but it is questionable whether they will go much farther, as indicated that it was the Republican House budget that was enacted in 2011.

    On guns, I am somewhat indifferent, but Daley never proved that his unconstitutional ban ever took guns off the street. Anyway, the only way Blago won the 2002 primary was that he told people in southern Illinois that he was against gun control (lied to them too), and the people in Southern Illinois won't ever vote for this.

  • In reply to jack:

    Very rare I disagree with you in context, but I do not believe Rahm's family, or Jews for that matter, DO NOT hold dominion or preference over what happened in Nazi Germany. I lost half my family and we weren't Jewish. The fact is - Rahm Emanuel has resorted to strong-arm tactics throughout his political career to further a Liberal agenda - and sometimes that agenda clearly oversteps the boundaries of good government. Historically, when people cede that much power to elected officials that power could become so corrupted that a rebirth of a police state, i.e. Nazism emerges. That is the cost of apathy. So whether appropriate or not - it is what it is and if that were to bother him, or anyone else than he better reconsider how he uses his dictatorial powers to avoid such comparisons. In my eyes what he has done is in many ways no different the tactics used - Rahm is just a different face.

    If that ruffles the sensibilities of the politically correct then so be it. People better remember their history because it is much more real than they can imagine if they continue to accept more intrusions upon their liberties. Can't sugarcoat reality Jack.

  • In reply to Michael Ciric:

    Well, I would rather leave it on the level that there isn't democracy in Illinois, and Emanuel has shown some strange tendencies with regard to Freedom of Information and shaking down the taxpayers.

    That has nothing to do with who has preference with regard to the Holocaust; remember I mentioned Roma (Gypsies) a couple of days ago. And I note that you didn't use similar terms with regard to the MQ part of Richard Davis's RMQ, and no one has mentioned the C part of RMQ, i.e. Cullerton. I also don't drag Blago's ethnicity in any discussion about that convict.

  • In reply to jack:

    I would rather too to be honest but Rahm's actions go beyond even the normal Demi-Crook attitudes; the strong-arming tactics are legendary in the House. Of course I also said "I would hate to think..." But I do find his actions to be disturbing if not ironic. Family history or not Rahm has displayed a power freak characteristic and that is always dangerous. Mayor Daley was a bully but generally did his bidding more akin to a snake in the grass as most in the machine (in reference to the omission of the Cullerton Clan) do. Rahm on the other hand has stood before us and matter of factly done his thing. Dangerous so far as I can tell.

  • In reply to Michael Ciric:

    Chico would have turned everything over to Burke and the unions. Braun would have probably turned everything over to the 7th Ward/2nd District superficially fueding political machines. So, to that extent, Emanuel is preferable.

    As you note, Mayor Daley was also a bully but didn't make that as obvious as his Father did. If Maggie hadn't become sick, we never would have known whether King Richard II was going to abdicate. Yet, it looked like even after 22 years of "beneficient" dictatorship, even he got a glimmer that he was no longer effective.

    Rahm has already been knocked down; for instance, the State Educational Labor Relations Board upheld an unfair labor practice charge on Brizard trying to go around the union on implementing the longer day this year, and the Tribune Editorial Board railed against the SELRB's decision. While I see no need for an SELRB, too bad, that's the law, Tribune.

    You are teed that unlike both Daleys' and Jane Byrnes's "lets get the suburbs to pay for the CTA by fomenting another region-wide crisis," Rahm wants to tax your gun, instead of all the other things mentioned by the YR. But I noted he doesn't have the votes in the state legislature to do it, nor the ability (cp to Blago) to pander downstate to get them.

    I also noted that you didn't take up the opportunity of putting perjorative terms on the dictators Richard Davis and I mentioned in the legislature, and their penchant to cram through unconstitutional laws, yesterday's story about the law on recording the police on the street being only the latest example. I find them much more dangerous.

    I finally noted that I was indifferent to the gun issue, but on the other hand, something should be done to stop the shooting gallery in Chicago. According to the news, at least everywhere south of 67th to 127th is one. South Shore, Jeffery Manor, Avalon Park, and Roseland used to be safe neighborhoods. No more.

  • In reply to jack:

    Oh yeah last point - are you saying the judges ruling on that repressive eavesdropping law is dangerous? If so why? Police are paid by taxpayers and as such we are entitled to record them. Especially in Chicago - where, shall we say, one must be careful when determining whose side the cops are really on. I am glad the judge saw the error in a law that only would benefit a "police state."

  • In reply to Michael Ciric:

    No, and in fact I don't see how you got that.

    I said (1) the legislature is dangerous because most of what they do is pass unconstitutional laws, including the eavesdropping one, and (2) those with all the guns in Chicago are dangerous.

  • In reply to jack:

    Sorry Jack - I think I must have speed read right through that. My apologies. I Get what you meant and yes you are right.

  • In reply to jack:

    "First, given Emanuel's family background, I don't think that the Nazi comment was appropriate."

    Absolutely. That was a pretty disgusting reference.

    I fully support our mayor and this bill. Guns have no place in civilized society.

  • Everyone is entitled to their opinion but given the level of negativity your own blog got on the gun issue you might want to rethink that. p.s. even if I post something that comes back with negative comments - I wouldn't shut down my comments. Think about it.

  • Thats because you are clueless. The Nazi party did the exact same thin when they came to power. Chicago had the toughest gun laws and the highest murder rate in the country. The Constitution specifically gives Americans the right to defend themselves IF THEY SO CHOOSE so we are not at the mercy of a tyrannical government.

  • In reply to lrdvdr41:

    Well said Irdvdr41.

  • Jenna, your decision not to have a gun does not protect you from criminals. For example, Washington DC had twenty seven times more murders than the larger city of El Paso, TX in 2010. The guns are going to be "in civilized society" regardless. The question is "how easy do you want to make it for you to be raped or murdered".

  • Rahm may be preferable to the others you mentioned but let's not forget that old adage "be careful what you wish for." As for perjorative terms, I am sure that my blog history has about covered all of them. This post was about Rahm and his strong-arming no one else and the irony of it all.

    As for the gun issue - everyone is entitled to their opinion of them but as you stated elsewhere - tough the law is the law and people have the right to which I am 1000% committed to. Besides that is the only way you level the playing field against those with no regard for current law.

    Yes Chicago is a shooting gallery but don't blame the gun industry - blame the gang-bangers (people kill people - not guns) and the authorities for their unwillingness to protect the public.

    This was, by the way, a Daley folly too. Blame everyone but those where the blame needs to go. Rahm, I would have thought, was smarter than that but his true liberal colors come forth - blame guns. Absurd!

    As for my use of terms - not to worry - I will call an ace an ace whenever and where ever I see it especially when it comes to Lord Trevallin Madigan and Pancho Villa Berrios. No one is immune from their actions.

  • Do not worry about Rahm, he will probably be in jail with Holder, Brauer, Hillary and the other crooks that will be in court over Fast and Furious gun running progrm to send guns to the mexican drug cartels.

    Interesting Hogi - Never thought of that. Thanks.

    Second Amendment to the United States Constitution - A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.[.

    Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution - Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    Enactment of this type of legislation equates to a means test for second amendment rights. If you cannot afford to register, you do not qualify to exercise your second amendment duties? I don't think so.

  • In reply to Mitch Mathews:

    So Right Mitch! That is exactly why this would be headed to Federal Court without interference from a State Supreme Court purposely rigged by Democratic Politicians. That 4-3 majority has been, for the most, an impediment to the people of Illinois and a boon for the Demicrooks.
