I think I detect a note of sarcasm

Or perhaps, as Peter Zatloukal has said, an entire symphony of sarcasm:

After hearing the news that consideration was being given to National Guard troops being dispatched to the city of Chicago to quell violence, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Mayor Daley and Governor Quinn.
Mayor, Governor, congratulations. Your pathological efforts to disarm the honest law-abiding citizens of the state of Illinois have finally paid off in a most graphic way. By making Illinois one of only two states in the United States that denies its citizens the rights granted under the Second Amendment, you have succeeded in turning the city of Chicago into a war zone. Since the beginning of 2010, there have been more Americans killed in Chicago than in Afghanistan and Iraq combined. Congratulations, great job, I hope you’re proud.

  1. I’m torn as to whether to go along with the sarcasm. Either they intended these violent consequences, or they are the most blind and stupid people imaginable. It’s one or the other, and in either case they had to willfully flout the constitution, meaning they should be brought up on charges under Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242; Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law, resulting in both injury and death to their constituents.

  2. One nit for the quotee: Rights are not GRANTED in the BOR. They are GUARANTEED. All true rights pre-exist the state. The state cannot grant them, only protect them or infringe upon them. In our current case, mostly the latter.
