WGN Chicago Reports Pro-CCW Poll Results

How odd . . . WGN in Chicago put a poll on CCW in Illinois on their website.

Well, OK, that's not odd.

The poll ran for about a day (actually, it's still running, apparently until midnight central time) and, last time I checked, was running 77% "yes" on CCW and 23% "no."

You're right, that's not odd either . . . but I'm getting to it.

The odd part is that WGN news reported these results on the 9:00 news broadcast. They didn't even attach a sarcastic editorial about how dumb their viewers are. The words "cowboy," "swagger," "tragedy," "hidden guns" and "blood in the streets" were conspicuous by their absence. I have to admit, I'm not sure what to make of this. Earlier in the same broadcast, they discussed the CCW bills in the legislature and mentioned the Sheriffs' Association's resolution in favor. Illinois is beginning to have a different feel politically on this issue, even if all the other issues are depressingly consistent.

Won't mean a thing so long as Daley and his machine rule the State. There might have been a chance of enough following Reskin(sp?) and Blagojevich to make a difference had Obama not been elected. But somehow I just can't imagine a federal district attorney in an Obama administration being able to do any serious investigation of crooked Illinois politicians. And so long as the Chicago machine rules Illinois there'll be no legal CCW for ordinary citizens there.
