Anti-Second Amendment Democrat Arrested With Gun at Chicago’s O’Hare

Infowars | Dec 6, 2012

By Kurt Nimmo

The arrest yesterday of Illinois Democrat Donne Trotter by TSA agents for attempting to bring a .25-caliber Beretta pistol on an airplane at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport demonstrates the hypocrisy of the anti-Second Amendment crowd.

Trotter is charged with one count of attempting to board an airplane with a weapon, a Class 4 felony.

Donne Trotter is a long-time gun-grabber. He opposed concealed carry legislation in the state and worked to outlaw so-called assault weapons. During an unsuccessful Democratic primary bid in 2000 against U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, he criticized his opponent for missing a special legislative session attacking the right of Illinois citizens to own firearms.

In 1995, Trotter went up against fellow state senator Kirk Dillard after the Republican proposed a concealed carry law. Trotter argued that passing the law would turn citizens into vigilantes.

“Trotter is a South Side Democrat and he was a leader in the move to ban so-called ‘assault weapons’ during his first term as a state representative,” said Alan Gottlieb, chairman of Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, in a press release. “A man who favored banning firearms for thousands of his fellow Illinois residents shouldn’t even have a gun, much less be packing one illegally into an airport.”

“Senator Trotter, by his own action, has demonstrated the monumental hypocrisy of gun control advocates who try to disarm average citizens while reserving the right to bear arms for themselves alone,” Gottlieb continued. “He should not even be serving in the state legislature, much less be running for a seat in Congress, which already has its share of gun prohibition hypocrites.”

Trotter’s arrest follows remarks by sportscaster Bob Costas and sports writer Jason Whitlock after linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and then committed suicide with a handgun. “If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kassandra Perkins would both be alive today,” Costas said Sunday, citing an article condemning the Second Amendment.
