SHAMEFUL:  Quinn campaigns against guns while ignoring carnage from his early inmate release program

Pat Quinn keeps upping the ante in his jihad against scary guns.  It’s all an effort to distract from his scandal-plagued record as chief executive.  Just yesterday, his Democrat allies on the Cook County Board passed a measure to put a non-binding referendum on this November’s ballot there.

  The Washington Times today is headlining that federal gun prosecutions by the U.S. Justice Department have plummeted 25% since George Bush’s last year in office, 2008, despite no shortage of referrals from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives (and really big Fires).  Since 2004, prosecutions are down 42%.
