Feds Find 23 Guns In Office Of Indicted Chicago Democrat

Original post

A longtime Chicago alderman and staunch gun-control advocate who was arrested on federal corruption charges stemming from an attempt to use his position to extort a company hoping to renovate a fast food restaurant in his ward was found to have 23 firearms in his offices, according to a local CBS affiliate.

Edward Burke, who has for decades been one of the city’s most powerful and most notoriously corrupt officials, reportedly relied on a city ordinance stemming from the 1870s that designated all Aldermen as “peace officers” allowing them to carry and store weapons in their offices and city buildings – where even those with a concealed carry permit are not allowed to carry them.
