Chicago’s Mayor Daley On Arming Police With “Assault” Rifles

“Many times [the police are] outgunned, to be very frank,” Daley said at an event in the Englewood neighborhood. “When they come to a scene, someone has a semi-fully-automatic weapon, and you have a little pistol, uh, good luck.” -Mayor Daley

Semi-fully-automatic huh? Neat.

How long until that bozo is gone from Chicago?

  1. What a dope…. And how come this arguement doesn’t fly when it comes to private citizen gun ownership? He wants police to be “equally armed”, but the every day law abiding Joe on the street can just suck it, I guess.

    1. +1 paladin!

      Where can we get these semi-fully automatics? In imaginary land right where he keeps the rest of his brain cells?

    I was just gonna say the same thing as Paladin!
    If that’s enough justification for police to carry “SEMI-FULLY-AUTOMATIC”, why can’t a citizen carry ANYTHING AT ALL?
    It’s NOT a problem that a citizen cannot have access to their 2nd Amendment rights; when the police in Chicago need to start packing fully automatic weapons?

    At this point it’s not really news this guy is a big dumb jerk.

  3. It is interesting, though, that they are calling them assault rifles-typically the act of putting an AR-15 into a police car magically transforms it from an assault rifle to a patrol rifle.

  4. I have no problem with the police owning whatever guns they want…as long as the average citizen can own them too.

    So in Chicago, the police would be allowed to carry pepper spray. Oh, wait, that’s basically illegal for civilians in the city too.

    I guess if an officer finds a robber, they could hit them with their assault car…

  5. You know the best part, is that he’s been pissing and moaning about handguns for so long, now he’s saying that they are just ‘little pistols’. COME ON! All this crap about not being able to have a handgun, and now the issue is that the ‘little pistols’ aren’t enough. Really!?! Can’t wait for him to be gone, and hopefully Brady will replace Quinn

  6. […] is trying to get his police for a new type of firearm. I’ve not heard of this but thanks to Every Day, No Days Off I know about the amazing new semi-fully-automatic weapon: “Many times [the police are] […]

  7. Guns suffer from the same problem that makes driving in this country suck too. The people making the laws don’t know the first thing about what they so determined to regulate. As the old saying goes, dazzle them with brilliance or baffle them with bullshit; this guy will keep baffling us with bullshit and that’s why idiots from Chicago will keep voting for him.

    1. Daley isn’t running again, so thankfully no one can vote for him.

    Am I the only one who’s heard the term semi/fully automatic used to refer to select-fire weapons?

  9. Did anyone else notice that the date was APRIL 27, 2008. This is old news. The more recent press conference he gave he threatened to sodomize a reporter who questioned the effectiveness of his gun ban with the insertion of a SKS “up your butt” and then the discharge of a round.

    Later his press secratary stated that he was not going to insert the barrel of the SKS up the reporters butt.

    He was going to insert the bayonet.

    No, I am not making this up.


    PS As to how soon he is gone the answer is NOT SOON ENOUGH !
    PPS Also prior to the LEOs being issued the ARs they had to pass the push up test, No I am not joking.

    1. How come he gets to have one of those? I thought bayonets were BAAAAD. I mean, what if some hood shows up and tries to do a drive-by bayoneting on me?
