Chicago Police Superintendent: Lawful Exercise of Second Amendment Threat to Public Safety

It's no secret that police chiefs in large urban areas are usually anti-rights.  But to say those of us who lawfully exercise our rights to keep and bear arms are a threat to public safety goes to the extreme.  Dana Loesch writes over on Red State, that is what the police superintendent in Chicago said.  She credited the Illinois State Rifle Association for the report:
Chicago’s embattled police superintendent dug himself deeper into a pit of controversy today by claiming that lawful firearm owners are agents of political corruption.  Appearing on a Chicago Sunday morning talk show, superintendent Garry McCarthy expressed his conviction that firearm owners who lobby their elected representatives or who donate money to political campaigns are engaged in corruption that endangers public safety.  McCarthy went on to express his belief that judges and legislators should rely on public opinion polls when interpreting our Constitution.
It's not bad enough that Chicago, with some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation also has one of the highest murder rates in the country.  McCarthy thinks they are not strict enough.
