Monique Davis is very anti-gun but very pro-military occupation.
A longtime Chicago lawmaker Tuesday called on Gov. Pat Quinn to send the Illinois State Police and the Illinois National Guard into Chicago to help quell gun violence.
Rep. Monique Davis, a South Side Democrat serving in her 13th term in the House, said she wanted troopers and National Guardsmen "to come to Chicago and work with our mayor, Rahm Emanuel, to provide safety for the children, especially, and for all who walk in Chicago. We deserve. We’re important. Our kids are important."
She also asked that Quinn appoint a task force to "guide the behavior of the National Guard. We don’t want them to have us fearing them also. We want them there for safety and protection."
But only two other Democrats accompanying Davis at a Springfield news conference agreed.
"I happen to disagree with calling in the state police and the national guard," said Rep. Mary Flowers, D-Chicago, "but what I do agree with is that the governor needs to do something. We must be respected in our community. We must have jobs in our community."
