Father Pfleger is at it again, but this time suggesting a criminal act

Updated: May 20, 2020

Hot off the presses is Chicago priest and rabid gun control advocate Michael Pfleger offering to take President Trump on a ride to Indiana in order to purchase guns across state lines:

Father Pfleger, are you suggesting commiting a crime and trying to include the President of the United States? Per the ATF:

“Father Mike“ (as his flock calls him) has been in the news a bunch due to his activism, most recently in Washington D.C. in late September:

CHICAGO (WLS) -- With little more than boxed lunches and warm clothes to sleep in, hundreds of Chicagoans are driving through the night to Washington, D.C. with a message for Congress: "#EndGunViolence."
Traveling aboard a caravan of buses organized by Father Michael Pfleger and St. Sabina Church, the group will rally outside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday; that same day the House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on "Protecting America from Assault Weapons."

So, he wants to “end gun violence” by traveling across state lines and conduct an illegal transfer of firearms? Really????? Of course, this is coming from the same guy that has illegally armed guards:

An armed security guard associated with staunch anti-gun and nationally known social activist, Father Michael Pfleger, was arrested on May 27 outside St. Sabina’s Roman Catholic Church on the South Side where Pfleger is a senior pastor. 
The Chicago Police (CPD) charged Henry Eugene Hale, 35, with possessing a firearm without a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card. He was released on $150 bond.
A spokesperson for the CPD told Chicago City Wire that police officers approached Hale at the church, which  is at 1200 W. 78th Place, when “they saw him holding a firearm.”
