Sniping from Illinois Senate Pres.

Excerpt from an article on gun ownership:

In other action, Senate President Emil Jones (D-Chicago), who has been a vocal advocate for civil rights and racial sensitivity, said he planned to increase pressure on the University of Illinois to eliminate Chief Illiniwek, the longtime school mascot who dances in Native American dress at university sporting events.

But pressed on how he planned to accomplish something other critics of the chief have tried to do for years, Jones resorted to a joke that seemed to reinforce the kind of stereotype he was complaining about.

"I'm going to scalp him," Jones said.

Editor's note: How professional of Mr. Jones to insert the total non-sequitor of Chief Illiniwek into an interview about gun owner's rights.
