Gov To Declare Martial Law In Chicago? Open To National Guard On The Streets (Video)

By Susan Duclos

Martial Law could be headed to Chicago as the Governor of Illinois Pat Quinn says he is ready to issue the order to bring the National Guard in if Mayor Rahm Emanuel tells him he needs help to eradicate crime in his city. Chicago, a city with some of the most restrictive gun laws in the U.S.,  meaning the majority of weapons being used for crime are illegally obtained, yet already in 2013 the death toll has reached 317.

Germantown Now asks some very pertinent questions, which are shown below before the news report on martial law coming to Chicago.

So what if the Illinois National Guard is called to state active duty? How many troops would be activated for this duty? Will the troops be issued their individual weapons? If so, will they receive ammunition for those individual weapons? What happens if a gunshot from a guard weapon is determined to have killed an innocent? Will the state stand behind the person who fired that shot, if one can be identified, so that he or she will not stand naked before justice?

All questions that Quinn's statement did not answer.
