Deacons for Defenselessness causing hardship to Riverdale

The mayor of Riverdale, IL (home of Chuck’s Gun Shop), although a proponent of strict gun laws herself, takes issue with the harassment campaign engineered by Jesse Jackson and “Snuffy” Pfleger against Chuck’s Gun Shop.

A suburban mayor is speaking out against a protest in her village last weekend. That demonstration ended with the arrests of Reverend Jesse Jackson and Father Michael Pfleger. They have led two protests at Chuck’s Gun Shop in Riverdale. The mayor there says the demonstrations have cost the village thousands of dollars.

The mayor says resources spent on protecting protesters’ rights and safety will be better spent elsewhere, in particular, trying to prevent gun violence. This was all sparked by an incident over the weekend, a protest of a gun shop in Riverdale.

I do not contest the right of people to protest whatever they feel compelled to protest. The Constitution protects such speech, and I would not want to live anywhere that such protections were not provided by law.

Still, when the protests are damaging to the very people they’re ostensibly intended to protect, perhaps a different approach is indicated.

Mayor Evans has expressed interest in accompanying the Deacons for Defenselessness to Springfield, where the legislating is done (Blagojevich’s and Daley’s wishes and delusions notwithstanding).

If it’s new laws they want, their protests should be where laws are made–not at Chuck’s, where they are obeyed.

    Yeah, I had seen that. To be honest, I had harbored some doubts about it initially–but I’m starting to get on board with the idea (now that I’ve given it a bit more thought).

    Getting it passed won’t be easy, I’m guessing.

    No, it’s going to be a hard battle, with enemas I mean enemies like Jesse (I am important) Jackson, Throwing his self preceved power against it. Just remember every little bit help in the fight for our rights.

    It’s the hand gun that separates the men from the boys, because a man will shoot it once and put it down a boy will shoot it many times wandering why it hurts so much.
