Illinois Anti-Gun Legislator Arrested For… Wait For It… Trying To Bring A Gun Onto A Plane

Chicago Anti-Gun Pol’s Arrest Shows True Gun Control Hypocrisy – CCRKBA

Today’s arrest of Illinois State Sen. Donne Trotter by authorities at O’Hare International Airport for having a gun in his carry-on bag is a revealing look at the hypocrisy of anti-gunners, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Trotter was arrested at a security checkpoint early this morning. A candidate for the 2nd Congressional District seat vacated recently by Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., Trotter had a .25-caliber Beretta semiautomatic pistol in his bag. The Chicago Tribune said Trotter told police he worked late last night as a security guard and didn’t realize the pistol was in his bag.

“Trotter is a South Side Democrat and he was a leader in the move to ban so-called ‘assault weapons’ during his first term as a state representative,” noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “A man who favored banning firearms for thousands of his fellow Illinois residents shouldn’t even have a gun, much less be packing one illegally into an airport.”

Trotter has reportedly been charged with one count of attempting to board an airplane with a weapon, which is a Class 4 felony.

“Senator Trotter, by his own action, has demonstrated the monumental hypocrisy of gun control advocates who try to disarm average citizens while reserving the right to bear arms for themselves alone,” Gottlieb observed. “He should not even be serving in the state legislature, much less be running for a seat in Congress, which already has its share of gun prohibition hypocrites.

“Today’s incident underscores just how pathetic the anti-gun philosophy has gotten,” he concluded. “Perhaps now he will realize how other citizens feel when they run afoul of some anti-gun law or regulation. He should apologize to every gun owner in Illinois.”

  1. I wonder if you will hear this on the news…if he was a republican you would, just imagine if this guy was a member of the Tea Party.

    • Probably NOT dakwolf. The Liberal Media won’t tell the truth as long as they can continue to BLINDSIDE the American public and color things to cover their a$$.

  2. he’d be happy to apologize if you promise him something, like a get out of jail card

  3. This guy is a moron. How did he think he was going to board an airliner with a gun in his bag. “he didn’t know it was there”……yeah, right! I might be crazy, but I’m not stupid enough to believe that line!
    Trotter should be thrown out of the government. I wouldn’t hire this clown to flip burgers at McDonalds! He’s not intelligent enough!

  4. it is a felony so he won’t be able to own a gun now.

  5. Douchebag is a Senator and works as a Security Guard

  6. Of course, when will we all wake up and relize the rules are for us not them. The sooner the better, then we can get rid of every one of them.I guess you would call me a gun nut, who do I bother only assholes that wish to Control Me!!!
