Chicago Police Superintendent Says Lenient Gun Laws Equate To Government-Sponsored Racism
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's new police superintendent, Garry McCarthy, makes the outlandish claim in a speech he delivered at a Chicago black church that government laws allowing Americans easy access to guns is the equivalent of government-sponsored racism not unlike slavery and Jim Crow laws. Absolutely unbelievable. Not surprisingly, the church event he was at was hosted by Father Michael Pfleger of St. Sabina Church, the controversial Catholic priest with close ties to Obama's former controversial minister, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Pfleger and Wright have been big proponents of a local Chicago ordinance banning guns, which was overturned by the Supreme Court as a violation of the Second Amendment. McCarthy says the NRA doesn't like him and he's okay with that.
