WHERE’S COSTAS?

CHICAGO (AP) — A veteran Illinois state senator was arrested Wednesday after allegedly trying to board a flight from Chicago to Washington with a gun and ammunition in a carry-on bag, authorities said.

Sen. Donne Trotter, a Chicago Democrat who recently announced he would run to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. in the U.S. House, was carrying an unloaded .25-caliber Beretta handgun and a magazine clip with six bullets when he tried to board a flight at O’Hare International Airport, according to Chicago police.

    Shouldn’t Hervé Villechaize be shouting, “De plane, Boss, de plane!” to this guy?

    He says he works part time as a security guard??? GIVEMEAFUKINBREAK! Nobody in their right mind would carry a 25 auto as a security guard…not even for a back-up, back-up gun!

    I’m having a hard time trying to focus on reading this article because I am so fascinated about this guy’s skin color being the exact shade as his shirt. What is he trying to camouflage himself as? I’m thinking, I’m thinking…I’ll come up with something.

    They forgot to mention he’s a gun control proponent. That may not be relevant to the story though.

    It’s a sneaky set up. This was no mistake. This administration wants to ban guns, period. This golden hued man is from the Chicago glee club that Obama and Rahm came from. A straw man. This was meant to draw attention to how even a politician can endanger the public with a gun. He knew that he was going to be caught just like everyone else in the world would.

    He obviously hasn’t flown in the past 10-12 years either. A freakin’ lighter these days is a weapon of mass destruction. Fcuking pussies!

    Frosteetoes — I’m afraid you’re right. The Left is going to do and say anything and everything in order to disarm Americans. This guy will run for office ane he will be elected if obama wants him to be.

    I hate the part where I have to be a cynic.

    @Kairn, he looks like some stuff one of my dogs puked up, after he got into a bag of those yellow marshmallow peanuts.
    If that helps…

    @Doc; I agree it wasn’t a backup but as a skilled Illinois Democrat it was probably a “throw away” that he forgot he was carrying. In any event, it pretty well guarantees his victory even from jail.

    @judgeroybean, I agree. He has to be a felon to run, and this was the most direct way to make it happen.

    Who carries a 25. WHAT A PUSS. It ain’t a hand cannon unless it starts with a 4. It’s like bringing a knife to a gun fight.

    The gun was a diversion to draw attention away from the crack pipe in his pocket.

    Did he have a carry permit? If so how with Chicago’s gun control.
