Democrat State Representative La Shawn Ford wants people in his neighborhood in Chicago to acquire more concealed carry licenses.
In 2019, Ford ran for mayor. Ammoland notes that Ford “favors more tax money going to Chicago from the State of Illinois, and from the Federal government. He thinks there are plenty of police in Chicago, and they should have more controls on what they do.”
However, the state rep is having a change of heart on the gun issue. On WLS-AM 890, Ford told the Mancow Show that he is encouraging his constituents to arm themselves in the face of Chicago’s growing violence. Ford specifically said:
I think about it all the time. That’s why I’m working with a concealed carry instructor and we’re going to go through the neighborhood and we’re going to encourage people to get their concealed carry license because it makes no sense for people not to have the protections that they need.
Urban centers may be witnessing a cultural shift on gun control. Information from gun researcher John Lott and activism from groups such as Black Guns Matter are changing the discussion on gun policy. Historically, blacks have been prevented from exercising their right to bear arms through laws such as the Black Codes and Jim Crow in the South.
Now, thanks to increased gun liberalization at the state level, blacks are now applying for and obtaining concealed carry permits in record numbers.
Illinois has played a special role in the battle to restore gun rights in America. After all, it was in McDonald v. City of Chicago, where the Second Amendment was incorporated at the state and local level. From there, all levels of government—federal, state, and local—had to respect this right. The plaintiff involved in this case was Otis McDonald, a black resident of Chicago.
This call by Ford represents a small, yet important step in changing the conversation in urban centers across America. For too long, gun control policies have rendered countless law-abiding minorities defenseless against crimes. It’s promising that a Democratic politician and former mayoral candidate recognizes the value of concealed carry.
Let’s hope this leads to a reform of Illinois’s gun laws.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
