Chicago Anti-Second Amendment Politician Victim of Armed Robbery

Chicago Anti-Second Amendment Politician Victim of Armed Robbery

Dean WeingartenArizona -(Ammoland.com)- Aaron Goldstein, above, is an ambitious Chicago politician and Progressive lawyer.

He was campaigning in his ward in Chicago when he and his crew were robbed at gunpoint by three young men. The robbery took place on Thursday afternoon, 11 January, 2018.

From the chicagotribune.com:

The robbery took place about 3:25 p.m. in the 4600 block of North Albany Avenue in Albany Park, when three men in their early 20s approached them, according to a law-enforcement source.

One of the men flashed a handgun and demanded the camera equipment and other personal belongings from the team, according to police.

The gunman and two other men robbed Goldstein and four others of camera equipment and their cellphones before they ran away, the law enforcement source said. As of Thursday evening, no one was in custody, police said.

Police described the three suspects as between 20 and 24 years old. They did not release a detailed description of the suspects.

 

The cliche in this story is that a Conservative is a Democrat who has been mugged. I do not think it applies to committed Progressives. They have so internalized their false assumptions about reality that it is nearly impossible to change those assumptions.  Consider  Mr. Goldstein's policy on guns. One of his key assumptions is that the sole vested interest of the NRA is to sell more guns.

From chicagotribune.com:

He will undertake unique, progressive solutions to the spread of gun violence, including going after gun manufacturers and the NRA whose sole vested interest is to sell more guns.

He will aggressively wage a fight against Trump and his policies that hurt and disrupt Illinois and its residents. He will aggressively protect Illinois' environment and promote a sustainable economy. He will eliminate legal obstacles to all Illinoisans having access to affordable, quality health care, which he believes is a fundamental right and not a privilege.

While the NRA is not opposed to the sale of firearms, it is not the NRA's only vested interest. Maintaining their membership base is far more important.

His assumptions do not include the rule of law and a government limited in power by the Constitution. They cannot. They are directly opposed to it. You cannot have quality health care as a “right”, and have limited government.

As a Progressive, you can be sure his desire to “eliminate legal obstacles” does not include a reduction in government regulations and rules, but in adding to them.

I do not expect Aaron to learn much from his armed robbery experience. He will find ways to rationalize and deflect the experience to blame capitalism and the existing “system” for his difficulties. He will find ways to label the robbers as the real “victims”.

A consistent refrain in modern Progressivisim is the elimination of any responsibility for personal actions and choices.

    Too bad they didn’t pistol whip that communist piece of human waste!!! The perps r probably good democrat voters. I grew up in a beautiful south side neighborhood. It’s now a war zone. What has happened to my home town of Chicago? Back in the day before the democrat party became a bastion of communist scum , they use to b able to run the city where most neighborhoods were safe. The original Mayor Daley knew how to run a city. Sure he wasn’t the most honorable guy BUT like zI said he knew how to run the city.

    @Viper1 – The problem with your statement is there are not suppose to be any guns in Chicago!

    That, you are right about. I realized that as I was writing my post, however, Chicago’s very strick gun control laws doesn’t seem to be working (in my opinion as planned) and Chicago continuously being the example of how gun control doesn’t work would probably like nothing better than to impose their 3rd Reich tactic on neighboring states that doesn’t have as stringent control laws on guns. Rahm Emanuel who is an ardent anti Gun proponent would use any opportunity to expand Gun bans. My only surprise is he hasn’t claimed the guns used in the murders and other gun… Read more »

    It would not surprise me if this was a set up to say if there was no guns this would not have happened. The lack of a good description also leads me to believe they didn’t want anyone cuaght, out of 5 victims not one could give a decent description except maybe early twenties. Fake news to bring about results.

    He’s a “progressive” Chicago politician. Which means he is as creepy and corrupt as it is possible for a human to become. It means he has utter contempt for other humans and is so blinded by his self regard and perceived virtuousness that he is literally incapable of empathy or analytical thinking. Trust me, I suffer the consequences of the policies that these loathsome parasites enact. Frankly I wouldn’t give a tinker’s damn if he ceased to exist.

    No, that was when they put the barrel up his you-know-what. It’s a little game they play in the hood after they rob you called “hide the barrel”. Some people like it, like him, as you can see by his smile.

    I love this idiocy. No description of the suspects, I see. Now, that is almost a marker that the perps are minority, given that part of Chi-town likely black. We are so afraid, so weak, so cowardly, unable to face reality. No doubt, a downhill slide for this society.

    Actually, Albany Park is NOT black. It’s blue-collar white neighborhood on the North Side. There’s a large Korean neighborhood nearby (not known for its lawlessness), and a small Filipino enclave around the corner. But mainly, it’s Polish and Italian.

    I live in the Phoenix area, where the newspaper of record is the “Arizona (People’s Democratic) Republic” (my inclusion within parentheses). There are many felonies committed in the area, especially in the minority residential and business districts, but the Republic is loath to provide any description of a fugitive or captured perp, unless he is a Caucasian male. A typical report would be, “Police are on the lookout for a male, 17 to 20 years old, black hair, brown eyes, 5′ 4″, 186#, who speaks with an accent….” and so on. With so many details, would it not be useful… Read more »

    He must be too low on the food chain to get a permit to carry. I feel certain that if he and his henchmen could they would have guns to protect themselves. This is funny and the looks in his eyes could be from amazement that some of his people would actually do that to him. Deer in the headlights?

    Never call the scum “progressives” as it’s a term they invented to cover up what they really are: Marxists.
    Same goes with the term “liberal” adopted as camouflage by socialists.
    Call the buggers what they really are.

    First of all, That pic. Wow. Creepy. Unfortunately, our unlucky (deservingly so) pol will continue his anti 2A work and rhetoric, with an even more zombie like stare, and blame us for putting evil guns into the hands of poor, misguided individuals, like his robbers. Because WE’RE the bad guys.

    Guns aside, I would imagine that Aaron and his Crew, would have given up their belongings if the three-thieves had baseball bats or tire irons. Does he NOT SEE that it is truly the people, not the weapon of choice??? Either way, they would still be cleaning their shorts, after the incident.

    Clark Kent was a pseudonym used by an individual who had to make a switch after his other three letter handle became too wildly synonymous with stupidity.

    Whether or not this is the same individual remains to be seen, but good memory on the part of Wild Bill for this post.

    @ Wild Bill, I never stopped, though sometimes it is not always done strictly on Ammoland. Work and Family dictated time spent last year, though for us cursed with memory Gil will forever be the buffoon to end all. One thing to consider however, though it may have changed in times since, the old Clark Kent/Gil would post on California time most commonly, or between the hours of 1 and 4 AM East coast time. That is why I have not fully committed to acknowledging this as the same individual. If it is someone new to Ammoland, a name change… Read more »
