Illinois mayor can ban booze and guns under coronavirus emergency act

Deborah Feinen using her powers…

Yeah, that won’t cause a panic. Oh, and they have ZERO confirmed cases in the city. Never let a crisis go to waste…

From NY Post: The Second Amendment be damned! At least an Illinois mayor seems to think so.

In an executive order, Champaign Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen declared a coronavirus emergency — not one case yet in the city of 87,500 — and included ordinances that let her ban the sale of firearms and ammunition as well as booze.

“None of the options will necessarily will be implemented but are available in order to protect the welfare and safety of our community if needed,” city Communications Manager Jeff Hamilton told local NBC affiliate WAND-TV.

Feinen let it be known that she is in charge. “So many of those powers, I have had from the beginning,” Feinen told WAND-TV. “All we have done is enumerate them and now the public is aware of them. So, I am the liquor commissioner. I can shut down bars yesterday, I could have shut them down two years ago. Nothing has changed with respect to that, it is just that we have laid it out, so people are aware of that. In respect to the other items that are listed in the attachment, they have been listed in the city code for 15 years.”

How can this be happening? Mass shooting in California at “celebration of life” event

California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. This includes age restrictions, gun registration, limit on ammunition purchases and red flag laws.

Last year Governor Newsom signed into law an additional 15 new gun control laws. He said at the time: “Gun violence is an epidemic in this country, one that’s been inflamed by the inaction of politicians in Washington. While Washington has refused to act on even the most basic gun safety reforms, California is once again leading the nation in passing meaningful gun safety reforms.”

How’s that gun control working in California? Yesterday’s headline: 1 Killed and 5 Injured, Including 7-Year-Old Girl, in Shooting at California Family’s ‘Celebration of Life’ Party.”

Details from Yahoo:

“A shooter fired multiple rounds at a gathering of people at an apartment in Tulare, Calif. on Wednesday night, killing one and injuring five others, including a 7-year-old child, according to police.

Tulare Police Sgt. Ed Hinojosa said during a press conference that the suspect opened fire at a “party or some type of celebration of life going on for somebody who was buried today that was apparently involved in a car accident a few days ago.” He added that there were about 50 to 60 people present.

A 23-year-old man has died and five others were injured: two men, two women and the 7-year-old girl, police have confirmed. The girl was being treated for multiple gunshot wounds and had been transported to Valley Children’s Hospitals. As of Thursday morning, no updates on her condition have been provided. The police department did not immediately respond to a request to comment from TIME.

As mourners left the apartment, the shooter approached a group outside in a front driveway, and opened fire. “We were all dancing, listening to music and drinking and the only thing I remember is hearing one shot, and then after that we heard like 10 rounds,” an eyewitness told ABC7 News. “Then everyone dropped to the floor and then we just heard screaming. Then after that everyone ran inside.”

“There was blood everywhere,” another eyewitness told local newspaper The Visalia Times Delta.

Hinojosa said police arrived to a “chaotic” scene after receiving several calls around 10:30 p.m. reporting multiple gunshots fired. He did not elaborate on a description of the shooter, but speculated that the incident could be gang-related.”

Not a gaffe: Joe Biden will go after gun industry and your guns

For me the Second Amendment ranks way up high of one of the issues that I really, really care about. Any candidate who promises to take away my guns is NOT going to get my vote.

Joe Biden is that candidate. He’s promised to “take down” the gun industry.

As reported by Breitbart in February:

“During a Monday night speech in South Carolina, Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden referenced gun manufacturers and said, “I’m going to take you down.”

Read their whole story here.

Biden also received the endorsement of Pancho Beto in which Biden appeared to seek the help of Pancho Beto in gun confiscation. From Twitchy:

“Joe Biden tells Beto, of “hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” fame that “you’re going to take care of the gun problem with me. You’re gonna to be the one who leads this effort.”

Read that whole story here.

Joe’s plan to chip away at the Second Amendment includes the following:

Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines; buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities; reduce stockpiling of weapons; and end the online sale of firearms and ammunitions.

Along with Joe’s plan to raise my taxes, I cannot support someone who seeks to destroy my 2A right. No way, no how, Corn Pop!

Demorats are truly ignorant: Former congressional candidate embarrasses herself with tweet about guns

This womyn – Saira Rao – actually ran for a congressional position in Colorado. She lost in the primary.

She thought she’d be clever with her tweet. So clever that she had to delete it.

And these are the type of demorats who want to run our country? Scary.

Posted forever on Twitchy.

Strict gun-controlled Chiraq: “Eruption” of gun violence in February

How’s Mayor Lightfoot’s “grand plan” to address gun violence going? Just as one with common sense would expect…

From MyFoxChicago: Overall crime in Chicago decreased in February 2020 compared to the same month last year despite an eruption of gun violence, according to statistics released by Chicago police.

Murders and shootings reported last month in Chicago were up from February 2019, police said in a statement Sunday. The 34 homicides reported in February were a 41% increase from the 24 reported the same month last year, while the 137 shooting incidents were a 25% increase compared to 109 in 2019.

So far in 2020, 68 murders were recorded in Chicago, police said. The number of shooting incidents came in at 274, with a total of 325 victims. The Sun-Times has also counted 68 homicides this year within city limits.

Last month’s gun violence included two mass shootings. The first was on Valentine’s Day when someone shot six people at an apartment in Parkway Gardens. On Feb. 25, one person was killed and four others were wounded when three males opened fire into an Avalon Park convenience store.

February also saw a weekend in which 11 kids were wounded by gunfire — at least three of them in accidental shootings. The weekend before that was the deadliest February weekend in almost 20 years with nine people killed in citywide shootings.

Meanwhile, more than 1,500 illegal guns were seized by officers so far in 2020, an increase of about 100 from the same period last year, police said. Of those seizures, 81 were assault weapons.

Overall violent crime — including murders, robberies, burglaries, thefts and motor vehicle thefts —were down by 3%, police said. Thefts saw a 13% decrease and burglaries dropped by 9% compared to the same period last year.

Lightfoot and interim Police Supt. Charlie Beck announced plans to add more police officers to the transit system after a multiple instances of violence were reported at CTA stations — including a fatal shooting Feb. 17 in the connecting tunnel at the Jackson station downtown.

Hours after that plan was unveiled, a man was shot by a Chicago police officer in an incident caught on video at the Grand Red Line station. The FBI is assisting the Cook County state’s attorney’s office’s investigation into the shooting with “possible criminal charges” looming.

Earlier in the month, a man who shot someone outside a Lake View bar was fatally shot by responding officers in an exchange of gunfire.

Santa Clara County DA’s Office creates team to remove firearms from dangerous offenders

I’m all for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. What I’d like to see is stronger enforcement of current gun laws and harsher punishments for prohibited offenders.

Just serving a warrant can be dangerous enough for police. Can you imagine how volatile situations may become when trying to confiscate a violent criminal’s firearm?

Chiraq off to a typical week: 5 shot, 1 fatally Monday

The shootings never stop in Chiraq, even during Monday’s “accountability” meeting.

From MyFoxChicago: One person was killed and four others wounded in shootings Monday in Chicago, including a 27-year-old woman who was fatally shot while trying to fend off someone breaking into an apartment in Albany Park on the North Side.

She and a friend were inside the apartment about 9:32 p.m. in the 4400 block of North Francisco Avenue when they heard a knock at the door, Chicago police said. A male wearing all black with a ski mask tried to force his way in after they answered the door. Stephanie Brooks was shot in the chest as she tried to close the door, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

In non-fatal shootings, a 15-year-old boy was critically wounded after he was shot in Morgan Park on the Far South Side. He was walking about 6:48 p.m. when two males approached him in the 11300 block of South Aberdeen Avenue, pulled out a gun and shot him in the abdomen and shoulder, police said. The teen was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

A 60-year-old man was shot while standing in a yard in Austin on the West Side. The shooting happened about 10:20 a.m. in the 500 block of North Leamington Avenue, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition with gunshots to his abdomen and chest, police said.

A 22-year-old woman was shot in Lawndale on the West Side. She was walking in the 2200 block of South Keeler Avenue about 9:15 a.m. when she heard gunshots and realized she was hit, police said. The woman was taken to Stroger Hospital with a gunshot wound to her leg, police said. She was listed in good condition.

A man was wounded in a shooting in Little Village on the Southwest Side. The 19-year-old was standing in an alley at 12:52 a.m. in the 2800 block of South Komensky Avenue when he heard shots and felt pain, according to police. He was hit in the abdomen and taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.

Five people were killed and 17 people were wounded last weekend in Chicago.

Chiraq’s gun control laws at work: Eleven children wounded in shootings since Friday night

Right before I published this post I saw that the number of kids shot went up from eight to eleven.

Mayor Lightfoot’s “Accountability Monday” meeting should be fun.

MyFoxChicago reports that since Friday night eight children were shot and wounded. The minors were wounded at a “gathering” at an apartment complex on the South Side. From their report:

“Three adults also were wounded in the shooting at the Parkway Gardens housing complex.

Police said a 14-year-old girl, 18-year-old man and 23-year-old woman were listed in critical condition. The girl suffered wounds to her back, shoulder, lower backside and leg, while the woman suffered wounds to her back, shoulder, head and stomach. The man suffered multiple wounds to his leg.

A 20-year-old man who suffered wounds to his face, chest and leg was listed in serious condition.

Another 14-year-old girl, who suffered a gunshot wound to her leg, and a 15-year-old girl with gunshot wounds to her leg and foot were in good condition, police said. The release said the circumstances leading to the shooting weren’t immediately known. Police said the 23-year-old woman was armed with a handgun, but didn’t say whether she fired the weapon.”

And despite having a “Child Access Prevention Law,” three minors were wounded during accidental shootings. These incidents involved a seven-year-old girl holding a gun and shooting an 11-year-old boy; a young boy playing with a gun and shooting an eight-year-old boy; and a 14-year-old girl shot in the cheek by a 15-year-old boy.

I wonder if any adults will be held responsible for allowing children to access their firearms?

Read about all the shootings here.

Chicago man on probation for robbery charged with double homicide

What do you know…another criminal who didn’t follow the laws and received lenient punishment. It’s almost appears that Chiraq’s strict gun control laws are meant to punish law-abiding citizens.

Alvin Thomas/Chicago Police photo

From MyFoxChicago: A 20-year-old man on probation for a robbery conviction is now charged in connection with a Sunday robbery in Chinatown where two men were shot to death when they resisted, police say.

Alvin Thomas, of South Shore, faces two counts of first-degree murder in the early morning shooting Feb. 9 in the 2000 block of South Wells Street, Chicago police said.

Huayi Bian, 36, and Weizhong Xiong, 38, were standing in the parking lot of an apartment complex with a 44-year-old woman about 2:13 a.m. when a man walked up and tried to rob them, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The woman complied, but the men resisted, at which point the man fired multiple shots, police said. Both men were shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. The woman wasn’t hurt.

Thomas was arrested minutes later at 2:27 a.m. in the 2100 block of South Archer Avenue, police said. He is due for a bail hearing Tuesday.

At the time of his arrest, Thomas was on probation for a 2018 robbery charge in Chicago, according to county records. He was released on home electronic monitoring after posting a $5,000 bond, and pleaded guilty to the charge in July 2019. He was sentenced to two years probation with credit for 319 days already served, county records state.

While out on bond, Thomas was charged with manufacture and delivery of cannabis in February 2019, but the charge was dropped the next month, according to county records.
