The state police have revoked O’Connell’s permit based on a provision of the concealed carry law that says permit holders can’t be the subject of a “proceeding for an offense or action that could lead to disqualification to own or possess a firearm,” said Monique Bond, a spokeswoman for the agency.
As much as I hated Chicago’s gun laws, this does us no favors and as expected, the mainstream media is all over it. It would be interesting to know why Mr. O’Connell felt the need to pull a gun in a dispute over rent money. There may be more to it. I hope there’s more to it. There really needs to be more to it. Otherwise, Mr. O’Connell is living proof that for every stupid rule/law, there was some idiot who made it necessary.
