Welcome to Chicago, a sanctuary city where illegal felons are welcome and protected! So, no wonder they’re getting bold by the minute!
Illinois Attorney General candidate Aaron Goldstein, 42, and his campaign team were robbed at gunpoint in Chicago as they were filming promotional photos for an upcoming campaign.
Well that should turn him into a Republican. If he was carrying a concealed firearm, they probably could’ve stopped the robbery. Maybe if he just tried to reason with the criminals more, they wouldn’t rob them right? Did he not explain to the young men that they were not allowed to have guns? Did he request to see their conceal carry permits? I’m sure they were all card-carrying NRA members! (just kidding)

The Chicago Tribune reported that Aaron Goldstein, 42, and members of his campaign team were approached by three men in their early 20s. One of the men had a handgun and demanded Goldstein and the campaign aides turn over the camera equipment and other personal belongings, including their cell phones, which they did.
According to the Tribune, law enforcement sources confirmed that they had no one in custody and did not release a description of the suspects.
Goldstein’s campaign manager Robert Murphy, who was not with the candidate at the time, explained that he was taking promotional campaign photos with an “in-the-neighborhood kind of” message, according to the Tribune. The incident took place in Albany Park.
Murphy, a Chicago committeeman, told the Tribune that no one was harmed during the robbery, and that the campaign was assured by the police that the robbery was not a targeted act.
Goldstein, Murphy and campaign spokespeople did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Ah, Chicago, the most fierce gun laws and here we have a Democrat robbed at gunpoint! Glad no one was hurt, but the irony of wanting a “neighborhood photo shoot” and getting robbed in that neighborhood with a gun is not lost on me!
Hysterical. Glad no one was hurt, but of course, the police aren’t releasing descriptions of the suspects, don’t want to be accused of racism, do we?
