CHICAGO ISN’T SAFE:  Subway behind bulletproof glass

  Chicago is so safe that this Subway franchise has to protect its employees with bulletproof glass, as reported by CBS Chicago. This isn’t the first fast-food restaurant and convenience store we’ve seen in not-so-nice areas of Chicago to employ ballistic glass. That’s the sort of safe we don’t need in the rest of Illinois.

  Michael Bloomberg should ask for his money back. He’s dumped $50 into his gun control machine now called Everytown for Gun Control – and the third graders he’s spent all that money on can’t even run a decent publicity machine or make a decent photoshop. But then again, what do you expect of employees like Philadelphia Mayor Michael...

Hey Bruce Rauner:  Your huntin’ dog doesn’t hunt gun rights!

Illinois Republican gubernatorial nominee and multi-billionaire Bruce Rauner has been Captain Invisible on gun rights. He plays the role of a conservative, of sorts, in his campaign thus far.  To tout his 2nd Amendment credentials, he loves to brag on his hunting dog, as though gun owners are low-information voters who will clap on cue because some guy says...
