Beware the Law-Abiding Citizen–Legal Gun Owner Fires at Chicago Commuter Train

The call came in just before noon last Thursday. A man with an assault rifle was firing at a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) Blue Line train at the busy downtown station of LaSalle Street and Congress Parkway. The suspect had 60 rounds of ammunition. Chicago police arrested Lorenzo Jones, 25, preventing what might have been Chicago’s own Long Island Rail Road Massacre in which 6 were killed and 19 wounded in 1993. Jones, they said, had an extensive arrest record but also a valid Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID) making him “eligible to possess and acquire firearms and firearm ammunition.” Whether Jones was issued a FOID card despite his arrest record or authorities fail to revoke his FOID card as his arrests piled up, he was a “law-abiding citizen” in the eyes of the law!

Join our action to tell corporate America to get off the “sidelines” and take a stand against gun violence including the “can’t miss” sniper rifle sold to civilians. When corporations want sane gun laws, we will have sane gun laws.
