    Those of you that have followed the McDonald case will enjoy this.

    Mick Dumke, the reporter Daley offered to shoot a few weeks ago reported that ...

    "In a novel twist, Daley also claimed credit for drafting a new ordinance allowing the legal registration of handguns in Chicago, even though he didn’t do so until after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling effectively ended the city’s handgun ban.

    “I understand some Chicagoans wanted to be able to keep guns in the home, and I listened to them,” he said."

    So, who knew? Dropping the 28 year old gun ban was all Daley's idea in the first place. He was just responding to his constituents needs. Imagine my surprise.

    Yeah, and it was Hitler's "idea" to let the Red Army bivouac on the Unter den Linden too.

    In the words of Pee Wee Herman:

    I meant to do that!

    “I understand some Chicagoans wanted to be able to keep guns in the home, and I listened to them,” he said."

    ..........And then sought another way to instute a defacto ban.
