I must have missed the memo.
Apparently it’s “Bring Your Gun Week” on the CTA. At least that’s what you might think in hearing about two gun incidents on CTA buses in the last two days.
First there were the passengers last week who got into a fight on a bus. A video shows the bus driver breaking up the altercation, and then discovering a gun on the floor. The apparent gun owner then high-tails it off the bus after the driver says, “Oh, we have a weapon here?”
Then on Tuesday a passenger found a gun on a seat and picked it up, thinking it was toy. He dropped the gun, which hit the floor and discharged, striking a friend in the leg.
Now don’t these CTA gun-toters know that while the Illinois Legislature approved concealed carry of guns, it’s still illegal to bring a gun aboard a CTA bus or train.
