Apparently during today’s election, Democratic mayoral candidate Tom Knox’s headquarters was robbed by a gunman:
Two armed gunmen robbed a Knox campaign office in the 4600 block of Frankford Avenue. Police say the robbers were wearing red “Knox for Mayor” t-shirts when they entered the office.
Investigators say one robber showed a gun in his waistband and demanded money from the workers.
I guess if you’re a criminal, it’s safer to rob the campaign headquarters of a candidate has steadfastly supported gun control, than it would be to risk that the guy you pick off the street might be one of the 32,000 people in the city with a license to carry a concealed pistol. 32,000 in a city that size are still pretty good odds, but it would have been a pretty sure bet that no one in Knox’s campaign was strapped.
