Perhaps if Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy spent less time threatening legal concealed carriers, and more time taking steps to end the rampant gang crime in the Windy City, then governo Pat Quinn wouldn’t need to consider sending in the National Guard and State Police to do the job that the Chicago PD either won’t, or can’t:

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says he’s open to sending National Guard troops or state police to assist Chicago police with curbing violence if city officials want the help.

He says state police have helped in places like East St. Louis, but only when local authorities coordinate things.

Quinn says he hasn’t been approached by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel yet.

Neither Emanuel or McCarthy seem bright enough to face the reality that the city gun laws that ensure that only criminal gangs are armed is the reason the city just “earned” the title of the murder capitol of the United States.
