It was odd to see a member of Lake County Sheriff John Buncich's department advocate breaking the law. The exact wording in the story was: "Lake County police Cmdr. Rob Arnold said, 'All the sheriff is asking is make the promoter have a guy with a federal firearms license check all these yard-sale transactions out.'"
So Buncich wants to impose nonexistent laws on citizens. Who made him king of this county?
According to our county commissioners, we've had law enforcement at these shows for the past 16 years and they have not reported problems to him in any of those 16 years. Lake County Commissioner Gerry Scheub says there is no problem, and our crime data prove him correct.
So why is our sheriff so happy to impose his own rules on honest citizens? Why is Buncich submitting to the wishes of failed Cook Country Sheriff Tom Dart?
Gun trace data show more than 90 percent of the crimes in Cook County use guns from Illinois, not Indiana gun shows!
