Typical Democrat. Democrats do not want law-abiding citizens to have guns for protection yet have no problem using them to defend themselves. Ex Chicago Mayer Daley was cut from the same cloth yet loved his 24-hour armed body guards and Chicago Police Dept. protecting him. Trotter is the same type of hypocritical Democrat.
(CHICAGO) (WLS) — Bond was set Thursday at $25,000 for State Senator Donne Trotter after he was charged with trying to bring a handgun onto an aircraft.
Trotter was arrested Wednesday at O’Hare International Airport, where security discovered the gun in Trotter’s carry-on bag.
Defense attorney Joshua Herman said he hoped Trotter would be released on bail Thursday. Under Illinois law, Trotter would have to post 10 percent of the set bond, or $2,500, to be released.
Trotter, 62, told police the gun that was confiscated was the same one he uses for work as a security guard, police said.
Trotter has a valid firearms owner identification card and a permit with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations to work as a security guard.
Trotter, a Democrat who has served in the state legislature since 1988, spent Wednesday night in police lockup.
