Clueless in Chicago

Okay! Here's a guy who's been mayor - for just the longest time - of a city with some of the strictest handgun regs in the country, a city which also vies annually for Murder Capitol of America. The State of Illinois finally considers the possibility of joining the twentieth century, handgun-wise, and what does Mayah Daley have to say about it? Aw, you already know...
Chicago Mayor Richard Daley is criticizing state legislation that would allow gun owners to conceal and carry their weapons. Lawmakers in Springfield are considering a bill that would permit gun owners over the age of 21 to apply for a concealed carry permit.

Speaking out against the legislation, Daley invoked the assassination of Martin Luther King, Junior.
As I recall, MLK was murdered by a guy with a rifle. But what the hell - incongruity has become a trademark of anti-gun whiners from sea to shining sea. Why should Daley be different?
