As many of you readers know, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart recently launched an offensive against Illinois’ newly-passed concealed carry law.
Describing the new law as a “monstrosity,” Dart complained that the law is fraught with loopholes that will allow dangerous individuals to acquire carry permits.
Dart complained further that restrictions limiting access to state and federal crime databases inhibit his office’s ability to object to the issuance of carry permits to Cook County residents.
In the end, Dart threatened to seek an injunction against the issuance of carry permits to anyone in Illinois until such time that the carry law was amended to his liking.
The timing of Dart’s rant against concealed carry is rather interesting. Just days before his tirade, the “Chicago Tribune” ran a feature story exposing the failure of the Cook County Probation Department to keep track of criminals out on probation. The article details the threats posed to society by criminals left unsupervised by Cook County’s broken probation system – the most glaring of which was the murder of young Hadiya Pendleton by three-time loser Micheail Ward.
