I'm sure Daley had nothing to do with canceling this African-American group's meeting.

"Gerald Vernon says he did everything he should have to obtain a permit to hold a meeting at the Tuley Park field house on the south side. He told the park supervisor he expected 150 to 200 people to attend, filled out the paperwork she gave him, paid a $100 fee, and walked away thinking he'd reserved a meeting room for the evening of June 30. The group that would be convening was Illinois Carry, an organization advocating for the right to bear concealed firearms."

But on Wednesday, a week before the scheduled date of the event, he got a call telling him his permit had been revoked.

Vernon says a Tuley Park official informed him he has to submit a new permit application that will be reviewed before he gets approval for the meeting. But when I contacted the park and asked about it, I was told the event had been canceled altogether.

Says Vernon: "This just sounds a whole lot like Daley's bull****."

This article was written by Mick Dumke the same (very liberal) writer that Daley threatened with a rifle at a press event two weeks ago. I can't be sure, but I'm thinking that Mick has to be reconsidering some of his previously held beliefs.

Doesn't sound like Daley is too fond of the 1st amendment either. Maybe an official Chicago state religion is next for him or quartering of Chicago Police in Gold Coast Condos at his discretion?
