Mayor Daley Shoots Gun Control In Foot

America’s gun control proponents might want to consider shooting (pun intended) this memo to Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley.

“Dear Mayor Daley: Please shut up. You ain’t helping us.”

Is there anyone doing more damage against advocates of gun control than Daley? The man is a walking billboard for right-to-carry laws. Anyone needing proof of that might want to read the statements he made in the wake of an 80-year-old Chicago man fatally shooting a career criminal who invaded his home.

The background story goes like this. The elderly man is a Korean War veteran who bought a handgun after three thugs robbed him at gunpoint in his home in late 2009. Chicago police would not reveal this elderly hero’s name, but my late older sister had a nickname she would give any old-timer she ran across, Pop Bucket.

For the purposes of this story, we’ll simply call the Chicago man, who defended his life, family and home in defiance of Daley’s tyranny, Pistol Pop Bucket. In late May, Anthony Nelson broke into Pistol Pop’s home. According to news reports, Nelson had a criminal history that included prison stints for drug and weapons convictions.

Nelson and Daley, before the incident, probably had little in common other than protoplasm and the firm conviction that Pistol Pop wouldn’t have a handgun in his home, because the city of Chicago bans them. Nelson got his rude and final awakening after he fired at Pistol Pop and missed. Pistol Pop returned fire, fatally wounding Nelson.

Daley has yet to get his awakening.-[source]
