    Supposedly Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has stated somewhere that he was going to train Chicago PD to initiate contact with CCW holders and kill them.

    Supposedly this has gone viral online. Funny thing is a google search I just did doesn't bring anything like that up.

    Here is the ISRA Alert:

    Has anyone heard of this interview that's "gone viral"?

    I thought CCW is illegal in Illinois.

    quite frankly, that is probably the dumbest rumor i have ever heard.

    even if it were true, i cannot imagine any officers ever going through with it.....why would they knowingly endanger their own lives, far above the call of duty, by engaging in a conflict with people they know to be armed?

    It's a little tongue-in-cheek. McCarthy (aka McStreetlight and lately McKillTheCitizens) was talking (again) about how CCW is so dangerous, because such citizens carrying in accordance to law will obviously be brandishing, pointing guns at the police, and causing all other sorts of mayhem. The standard "little people can't be trusted" line.

    ISRA is sarcastically saying "That idiot can't possibly mean that the police should shoot CCW holders on sight, so don't go spreading nasty rumors about what a tool he is."

    I think it is the literal opposite of "damning with faint praise". I'm not sure what that would be called.

    Amazingly other cities and states do not have this problem. Must be something in the water in Chi Town.

    I think the ISRA needs to stop spreading disinformation. A couple weeks ago our guns were going to be banned by the end of the week and the house wasn't even in session. Now we get an email warning about a rumor that's gone viral, but a google search on Garry McCarthy brings up no hits where it's being discussed on social networks or forums. So just how viral is it?

    Don't they have better things to do?

    So, nothing new in Chi-Town then?

    The only people in Chicago with CCW permits are political cronies and the police higher-up's in-laws.

    And they been killing each other on sight for 100 years anyway.

    CCW is coming to Illinois and it looks like Chicago is not going to be able to stop it.

    The emphasis should be on the last sentence in the first paragraph of the email alert. The ISRA is cautioning against spreading misinformation.
    No argument that McCarthy is an idiot top cop gun hater. His own ranks despise him and mayor Emmanuel for thier administrative lunacy.

    I saw the story about McCarthy's comment on Illinois Review a couple days before ISRA sent that. I don't think viral is quite the right word, but we've discussed ISRA's hyperbole several times here of late.

    Why is it that all the really stupid gun haters are named McCarthy? Maybe we should ban assault McCarthies.
