A chief of 'Only Ones,' and a felon?

So apparently, this is the situation in Illinois: private citizens cannot legally carry a defensive firearm in public; felons can become police chiefs (but if they were not "Only Ones," could not legally buy so much as a single round of ammunition or a Taser); and in jurisdictions like East St. Louis, a police department that was already unable to effectively rein in crime is further depleted with strikes and lay-offs.

And groups like the Brady Campaign have committed to maintaining the state-mandated defenselessness inherent to Illinois gun laws (even to the point of lying about the effects of proposed legislation). Whose side are they on? Certainly
not the peaceable armed citizen's. [More]
That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

Oh, and if you could spare a digg?
