Anti-Gun Sheriff Ignorant Of Law

     Lake County, Indiana Sheriff John Buncich doesn't understand Indiana firearms law and he's hostile to your rights.  He sure does appear to like Chicago law, though, which might explain why he asked -- no, demanded -- Lake County Commissioners bar private sales at local gun shows.  They refused; it's a moot discussion anyway, as that's not a power local governments even have in this state. So far, gun shows are doing better than ever up there.

    It seems Sheriff Buncich -- a lifelong Democrat -- picked up his strange notions at a big "summit" put on by Cook County Illinois Sheriff Tom Dart, who finds gun shows a lot easier to blame for Chicago violence than that city's gangs (among other things, people at gun shows aren't nearly so dangerous to infiltrate).

     Anti-rights bigotry: it oozes over borders, aided by ambitious, ignorant politicians.  Hey, Sheriff Buncich, try to remember which side of the border you're on -- and what the laws are in this state. Oh, and you might want to control actual illegal gun sales by members of your department before you complain about legal sales by other citizens.

The sheriff is bought and paid for by Bloomberg.

Funny thing is..... there isn't a 'Know the Law' hurdle to being elected sheriff. One just needs votes.... no matter how one gets them.

Clearly, that means any blooming idiot can become a county sheriff.

Is this the same sheriff who -- a year or so back, after a ludicrous Indiana Supreme Court decision -- announced that he would raid homes without warrants?

Now if only Mickey Bloomberg would remember which side of the Border HE is on....

As the rule of thumb goes: "If you want to know what skullduggery the Liberals are up to, just observer what they're accusing the Conservatives are doing."

If you were in law enforcement, it would seem an actual knowledge of the laws you're enforcing would be helpful.

How exactly can you write about this and not spew forth an increasingly vile stream of profanity directed at these people?

"Hey, Sheriff Buncich, try to remember which side of the border you're on -- and what the laws are in this state."

You could also add "...and WHY your residents LIVE THERE".

Here's a hint:

1. Jobs within commuting distance
2. All the guns you can buy
3. Not located in Texas

Take away any of those 3 legs of Lake County prosperity, and everyone who can afford to go will move somewhere else. It's mighty fortunate that you nice folks down in Indianapolis took #2 out of the hands of local government. We're all grateful for that...even moreso when one of the agents of said local government starts shooting his mouth off in public.

And there I thought you were going to write about Joe Biden and shooting through doors...

'taint true. You gotta get a LOT closer to the border for that to happen..

As long as you stay south of I-80, people are fairly decent.
