Chicago Values: 13 Shot In 30 Minutes
UPI FILE
President Barack Obama speaks to reporters at a news conference following the 2012 NATO Summit.

On July 25, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel said, “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values.” On Aug. 12, President Barack Obama said, “Chicago is an example of what makes this country great.” On Aug. 24, 13 people were shot in the Windy City over the course of 30 minutes.

In total, 19 people were shot from late Thursday through early Friday morning.

Four men were shot in the Little Village neighborhood about 5:20 p.m.

About 9:30 p.m., eight were shot at 79th Street and Essex Avenue.

Two were shot on East 37th Street at about 9:25 p.m. About the same time, there was a drive-by shooting on West 39th Place.

At about 9:40 p.m., one man was shot on South Jeffrey Boulevard.

Early Friday, a teen was shot on South Vincennes Avenue.

At 1:30 a.m., another teen was shot on West Grenshaw Street.

Since 2001, more than 2,000 troops have been killed in Afghanistan. In the same amount of time, more than 5,000 people in Chicago have died from a gunshot wound.

    NEGROES CAN NOT HANDLE STRESS. PERIOD. WHEN NEGROES GET MAD, THEY START SHOOTING.

    I THINK THE KENYAN – LIKE, Oprah Winfrey – ONLY LIKES CAUCASIAN CHICAGO. AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED, THE KENYAN AND Ms. Winfrey [ANOTHER ALLEGED HOMOSEXUAL] CAN E-V-A-P-O-R-A-T-E!

    • Robert Smith

      Chicago? 30 minutes? Sheesh, what about NY? And all but one of those was shot by the police.

        oh ya, one scenerio makes all data invalid, huh?

    • Huapakechi

      You denigrate a race when you should look just a little deeper. the lack of a family structure (thanks to lbj’s war on poverty welfare programs) has brought about a generation of all races that does not have the moral stability of a troupe of monkeys.

      • Mike in MI

        Huapakechi -
        The Bible doesn’t say, “Evil people will get better and better, become more loving, more Godly, become better people.” or such like. Watch, you ain’t SEEN “bad” yet.
        It’s going to get interesting to see how Obama lines himself up in relationship to such madness ’cause these are the kind of people he wants and needs to have vote for him.
        He’ll court them and turn our legal base totally upside-down, inside out and backwards on their behalf.
        Besides that he’ll need such scum as “enforcers” (Storm Troopers) of what he plans to do in his next term…if he doesn’t get put back under a Chicago bridge. But, doubt not, there are hordes of people who want what he promises.
        People like him have always done it.
        He should be any different????????

    • Gordon

      Ya but 98% of those Chicagoans killed probably were doing something to place voluntarily themselves into that situation. e.g. If you don’t want to be shot, don’t be in those areas.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Gordon,”

        IT IS NOT ABOUT BEING IN THE WRONG AREA. IT IS ABOUT UNCONTROLLABLE TEMPERS. NEGRO HUSBANDS AND WIVES SHOOT EACH OTHER WHEN MAD ENOUGH.

        NEGROES BELIEVE THE ONLY THING OTHER NEGROES HAVE TO LOSE IS THEIR LIVES. THERE IS NO MONEY TO STEAL. NEGROES LIKE TO HAVE THEIR WAY BECAUSE THEY HAVE LITTLE EDUCATION AND ARE NOT USED TO OTHERS CARING ABOUT WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. THEREFORE, WHEN NEGROES ARE HAVING A CONVERSATION WITH EACH OTHER AND A DISPUTED TOPIC ARISES, IT IS BEST TO “WALK AWAY” BECAUSE IF ONE NEGRO FEELS HER/HIS POINT OF VIEW IS BEING IGNORED OR DISRESPECTED, HE/SHE MAY “PULL-OUT” A PISTOL.

        Personal Liberty HAS ANOTHER THREAD ABOUT A SHOOTING AT A BARBERSHOP. MANY NEGROES CARRY THEIR PISTOL EVERYWHERE THEY GO – INCLUDING TO CHURCH. GUNSHOTS WERE FIRED [BY AN ELDERLY-NEGRO FEMALE] DURING A SERVICE AT MY GRANDFATHER’S CHURCH IN RURAL MISSISSIPPI MANY YEARS AGO. NO ONE WAS HURT, BUT, THE OLD LADY “GOT HER MESSAGE ACROSS” – DO NOT “MESS” WITH ME!

      • Jon

        That’s the whole point. Chicago is one of those dangerous areas which should be avoided by any sane person.

      • Gordon

        CAH, tryiing to follow you…… Are you saying is that black people are incapable of rational thoughts and actions when angered?

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Gordon,”

        THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS NO. WHEN NEGROES GET ANGRY, IT IS OVERWHELMING AND NEEDS IMMEDIATE SATISFACTION.

        “Gordon,” LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE [A COMPARISON] – SERIAL KILLING VERSUS “DRIVE-BY” SHOOTING.

        Theodore Bundy KILLED FEMALES IN WASHINGTON STATE, UTAH AND FLORIDA. THOSE KILLINGS TOOK PLANNING. Attorney Bundy PICKED HIS PREY BASED ON THEIR PHYSICAL APPEARANCE [BRUNETTES] AND THEIR LEVEL OF VULNERABILITY. HE “SCOPED-OUT” EACH SITUATION. A TIME-CONSUMING ENDEAVOR.

        ON THE OTHER HAND, NEGROES LIKE “QUICK” SURPRISE. IF A NEGRO IS “TICKED-OFF,” HE HAS TO GET YOU R-I-G-H-T N-O-W. HE CAN NOT EAT; HE CAN NOT SLEEP. SOMETIMES – EVEN THOUGH A NEGRO MAY HAVE HIS PISTOL WITH HIM – HE UNDERSTANDS THAT MOMENT IS NOT AN IDEAL TIME. OR, HE MAY NEED TO GO AND GET HIS PISTOL. “AT ANY RATE,” HIS TARGET WILL BE HIT WITHIN A TWELVE-TO-THIRTY SIX HOUR PERIOD. IF HIS MISSION WAS SUCCESSFUL, HE HAS PEACE. IF HE MISSED HIS TARGET, HE WILL SOON TRY AGAIN. IF HE HIT AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER, HE WILL WAIT UNTIL THINGS “COOL DOWN” WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT – THEN, HE WILL SELECT AN IDEAL MOMENT WHICH CAN ENSURE A SUCCESSFUL ELIMINATION.

        IF A NEGRO IS MAD AT SOMEONE, THAT PERSON NEEDS TO A-L-W-A-Y-S “LOOK OVER HER/HIS SHOULDER.”

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Gordon,”

        I MEANT TO HAVE SAID THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS YES – THEY ARE INCAPABLE.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        CORRECTION – Theodore Robert Bundy [BIRTH NAME, Cowell] “DROPPED-OUT” OF, University of Puget Sound School of Law. SOON AFTERWARDS, HIS “ACTIVITIES” BEGAN. HE WAS NEVER AN ATTORNEY.

        I WROTE MY EARLIER COMMENTS BASED ON MEMORY; I USED TO BE INFATUATED WITH Theodore Bundy.

    • Ron r

      idiot!!!!!!

    • therealhawkman

      There’s something seriously wrong with your brain. I think it’s called “cranial anal inversion.” Or, for those of you like brother HORTON; He’s got his head up his arse.
      I think HORTON hears a WHO dat.

      • Gordon

        IF you are directing that comment at me…… let me just say that I have no confrontations with people wanting to shoot me where I chose to live….. but of course I moved out of our native Chicago area decades ago to raise my children in a softer and safer environment. Someday look at a RandMcNally map book. See all those little dots with names by them. Those represent people living near each other. Some areas are better than others. Pick one.

    • ron . r

      Well fake uncle Ruckus there you go again diong your best black face. Though I know you are just another Reich wing idiot it’s about time you come clean for the masses. Don’t worry you will not loose your tittle of MSAWT.Although the real tragedy here is the out right over the top racist articles written on this site and passed off as truth. And now they have you on this page pretending to be a self-hating NEGRO and others thinking they are having a real debate with a real man. Next they will subscribe to the theory that it was in fact Abraham Lincoln who shot John Wilkes Booth, and the civil war was fought over state rights. Coward!!!

    • ron . r

      Dear Mr. Horton (Willie I presume) why did your mother not take the pro-choice route??? I am sure had she known she would raise a MSAWT son she would have considered it.BTW are there any more of you in-breeders left???

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      I WONDER WHAT IS THE DISTANCE BETWEEN “Man’s Country Bath-House” AND THE CHICAGO SITE FOR THE 2012 NATO Summit. DID THE KENYAN HAVE “PLAY-TIME?”

  • Warrior

    Believe me, “progressives” view these events as just late term abortions.

    • eddie47d

      Guns are the great equalizer. Supported and encouraged by Americans of all persuasions. Those doing the shooting have an absolute Constitutional right to own and use those weapons to solve any threat they feel is coming from anyone else. If someone is intruding in your space sock it to them and don’t hold back. There are several Stand Your Ground Laws that will even back you up. Since so many Americans want all to be armed then this should be considered acceptable losses in defending all gun owners rights.

      • Ken Hehir

        You know I’m real tired of morons like you eddie47d,if you had one clue as to what our founding fathers thinking behind the 2nd amendment maybe you would not write such boneheaded satire.As far as stand your ground laws go I have yet to find any that say drive-by shootings are covered under those laws.

      • momo

        Get a clue eddie, Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, but the bad guys don’t follow laws.

      • Butch

        momo, the POS commie sympathizer eddie can’t be bothered with the facts. this can only happen where law abiding people are unarmed because of the local laws.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “eddie47d,”

        I WILL TELL IT LIKE IT IS, SIR. CAUCASIANS WANT CAUCASIANS TO HAVE GUNS – NOT, NEGROES. “SHOOT ‘EM UP…SHOOT ‘EM UP!” IN CHICAGO SCARES CAUCASIANS. MANY CAUCASIANS HAVE PURCHASED GUNS AND HEADED TO SHOOTING RANGES. AS A NEGRO MALE, THIS CHICAGO STORY IS NOTHING NEW. MEMPHIS NEWS IS A “REAL TRIP!”

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Ken Hehir,”

        I UNDERSTOOD “eddie47d’s” COMMENTS. THOSE SHOOTERS IN CHICAGO DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND “Stand Your Ground Laws.” THOSE CHICAGO SHOOTERS ARE USING ILLEGAL GUNS.

        Mr. Hehir, NEGRO MALES BELIEVE LAWS ARE FOR “white people” AND USED AGAINST “black people.” THOSE CHICAGO SHOOTERS DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS.

      • bobbyp

        Like Ice T said to have a gun to protect us from GOVERNMENT TYRANNY.

      • cawmun cents

        Just yell the word “Detroit” at eddie47d and the argument is OVER!…..haw!
        Progressives,and their fantasy world……hilarious!
        -CC.

      • Hedgehog

        Hey Eddie: Your Founding Fathers gave you the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment, in order that you would be able to defend yourselves against governmental malpractice. Of course, if all the people shot were Democrats and fellow travelers, you may have a valid point.

      • Mike in MI

        Hey, eddy (the human backwater, head swirling round and round, the heart of it filled with dirty black bubbles and rotting animal matter) -
        If these animals want to kill themselves…give ‘em more guns and ammo. Save everybody the cost of trials.
        Hell, these are the very “communities” that Barack “community organized” back in the day.
        Somebody like him, you can look at the current result of his work and (if his basic philosophy doesn’t change), you can lay money down, he will reproduce again in everything his hand touches. (“A tree is known by the fruit it bears. A good tree bears good fruit. A rotten tree bears ROTTEN fruit.)
        So, what do you think you can expect for Amureeika? Go ask any refugee/escapee/new citizen from the old Iron Curtain countries!

      • eddie47d

        I don’t accept the moronic behavior of any gun owner who abuses the privilege of self protection. Many legal gun owners also fit that definition in being reckless and threatening. Just ask the Oak Creek shooter. Also remember that 63 of those 90 Stand Your Ground killings in Florida didn’t have a valid reason for killing anyone but the State couldn’t charge them because of the laxity of that law. Now dig a little deeper and see how your laws have become a license to kill with impunity. Yes “momo” and Ken good guys don’t always follow the laws either and I don’t think the Founding Fathers would be approving of their behavior either.

      • TML

        eddie47d says, “…the privilege of self protection.”

        Self-protection isn’t a “privilege”, Eddie… it’s natural right.

      • Gordon

        Hey youze guys…… 98% of all major shootings take place in “gun free zones”…. like Chicago IS, but black neighborhoods are “everybody got illegal gun zones” and many carry with the intent of killing. Again, for a few measly bucks you can pile in a car and move away and start over at zero somewhere else. Other people have done it.

      • sam1966

        Wrong, wrong, wrong TML. It’s a God given right. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!
        하나님과 국가 대 한!

        You need both love of country and fear of God to be a patriot.

      • TML

        Sam say, “wrong wrong wrong, TML. It’s a God given right.”

        Natural right / God given right….. what’s the difference?

      • TML

        Sam says, “하나님과 국가 대 한!”

        Btw… why Korean? lol

    • Ken Hehir

      Really I thought this was a new Chicago style olympic event suggestion.

      • Mike in MI

        This is the place Barack had suggested for the summer olympics this year. Can you imagine???
        Somebody on the international olympic Committee must have known about him, even then.

      • eddie47d

        Oh Please what drivel! London had bombings that killed a few and the Olympics went off with nary a hitch. I think those 30,000 security personel kept things somewhat safe and also Chicago doesn’t have mass casualty bombings. Now keep your Obama hatred loud and proud so we can listen to your further ridiculous rants.

      • Mike in MI

        Hey, eddy -
        Somebody else – not me – told Barack to go shove his beautiful speech and his offer to do this year’s summer Olympics in Chicago in a place that sees Rahm more often than the sun.
        Left the Great One (a legend in his own mind) totally nonplussed. HE ALWAYS got His Way before…? Who else could be a man so great he gets a Nobel (Pizza) Prize before he accomplished anything? …And then proceeded to dismantle the greatst country in the modern world …brick….by…brick.
        Or was that the Nobel Prize in Economics? Probably most fitting, since he has so convincingly proven to the world, beyond a shadow of a doubt, when the Keynsian Ecanemic model is applied and assiduously adhered to it will trash and crash the economy of the entire world.

      -CC.

    • Doug

      Are you sure Bruce? Do we really need laws on top of laws?
      Bad driving is bad driving and should be prosecuted as such. Only thing saying it is drunk driving does is bring in more money to city or town or what have you. Killing a person driving a car is the same whether drunk or sober. How many people do you think died in that same time frame from taking their prescribed medicine or poison is what it really is! It far out numbers people killed in car accident regardless if they were drunk or not! Where is the outcry to stop the Pharmaceutical companies from killings millions of people???????

      • Mike in MI

        Well Doug, -
        What possible difference should it have to make to someone who is so-o-o-o-OH quick to draw out such a beyond important comment.
        Hearing that, it should make your heart pound, your knuckles get white and your ears get red and flutter and your breathing come in gasps until you foam up and HOLLER,

    • Mike in MI

      That’s absolutely true…
      ‘cept where the neighbors and hoods the Obumpus Organized are concerned. Not only did he encourage them to get guns but also much heavier weaponry for the coming battle to put the hated, awful, horrible, disgusting, selfish hokey honky hillbilly, ##!()&%&#*++)% in their place. Specially when the UN army’s battle-hardened Ishmaelites and moslem civilization disrupters are called in to give their ignoble assistance

    • Gordon

      Sure, law abiding victims don’t have any guns.

      • Gordon

  • eddie47d

    Chicago has always been a hard working industrious city and that is what Obama was referring to. Trying to tie these shooting into his remarks is nothing more than a cheap “shot”.

    • momo

      And just what the hell would Obama know about hard work, that fool never had a real job in his life.

    • Butch

      You mean like Obumma equating Robmey’s work at Bain w/ a woman dying from lack of health coverage? Never mind that that woman DID have health coverage. There is no level to which the Fraud-in-Chief won’t stoop to maintain power.

      • Robert Smith

        The point is: If you aren’t working or old you aren’t generally covered for health care.

        Health care is just another corporate control over Americans. Would you really trust your government less than the president of a company who is dedicated to extract as much money as hecan for stockholders and his cronies?

        How can anyone be against universal health care and call themselves “pro-life?”

        Rob

        Obama didn’t make the ad. It came from a PAC producer and as far as I know it was only seen on the news. It got stopped before it paid in an advertising slot.

        You have a lot of lies as ads being put out by the bigger PAC’s from the right wing side by far.

      • Gordon

        Robert Smith= are you equating a man who is doing a good job profiting for a corporation with a man who is doing a horrible job running a nation with a massive ponzi scheme and massively increasing debt and financial loss to everyone? .

    • TML

      However it was meant, Chicago is far from being a model city for America. Illinois itself has a long authoritarian record, inconsistent with founding principles.

      • Gordon

        When I lived near Chicago, it was referred to as “The Enema Hole of the nation”… still is. Nobody from out-of-town wants to go there.

  • cawmun cents

    What is most ultimately funny is that these people pretend they actually care about this kind of action and reaction.They give lip service indicating that they want to fix the plight of people in the inner cities.They procure funds by which to do so,and they end up lining a politicians pocketbook,instead of helping anyone.If you were to do a survey on how much help the Democratic party has been to poor inner city folk,you’d probably find out that the sentiment for their”help”wasnt as strong as they make it out to be.
    Of course you would have to survey the actual folks down in the projects to really find out what that sentiment was,not some college students who you had given a grant to keep them busy being a democrat.
    So what I am saying is that you scratch their backs and they reciprocate,right?
    Exactly.
    If I give somebody what they want I will get their support in return,right?
    The condition is that what they want and what they need are two different things.
    If I gave them what they need then they would be free thinkers and they wouldnt need my support any longer,right?They could help themselves then,and use the resources to best keep me(me being gubment)from runnig their lives.But when they are stuck in a rut of habit,and the resources involved never make it to them because some fat bureaucrat has lined his pockets with the funds that could have helped them in one way or another,then they have to make it however they can.
    Usually behind a gun,they will ply their trade.
    The Democrats will say that the Republicans dont care and provide no help to those who live under such conditions.
    That is likely very true.
    But the democrats procure and spend great wealth, through taxing the whole of the populace to have those resources to procure,and yet when all is said and done,no changes have occured except more bureaucrats get their pockets lined.
    But the poor inner city folk are still killing each other and having to make crime their chief enterprise for survival.
    How can this be?
    If you redistribute wealth,then shouldnt people be happy and quit killing themselves to live?
    Or is the symptom of their universe not the one that is diagnosed by the spin doctors of the party which supposedly has their backs?
    If those who spent their time pushing the democratic party were to just take a look at the results then maybe they wouldnt need ultra rich movie stars and athletes to tell them how to vote.
    But there is no interest in changing the conditions but rather looking as if they are trying to do something about the problems.That is where they excel at mind-screwing the general populace and making them believe in their fake benevolence,which never serves to help anyone.
    People still out there killing themselves to live arent getting any benefits from these democratic politicians,but if you listen to what those politicians tell you,then you’d think they had a cure for the inner city cancer that is rampant throughout America’s large cities.
    The band-aid they apply doesnt even stick long enough for the blood to quit leaking out.
    As per usual they have no real answers to the malaise they have caused.
    They want these conditions to continue to occur because it makes them look benevolent and like they are really caring and helping when they procure funds to line their pokets with.
    The they turn and point the finger at the Republicans and scream,”the rich dont want to fix the problems that you poor inner city folk face!”
    Meanwhile.back in Chicago,people are getting shot and dying at a rate worse that our troops in a foreign war.
    If that doesnt startle you,then you are part of the conditions which lead to such occurences happening.
    But what do I know?
    Apparently very little……
    Cheers!

    I THOUGHT GUNS WERE ILLEGAL IN CHICAGO!!!!!!!!! That’s right the mayor rahm (another dumbazz) said just don’t hurt the children. Let people use thier 2nd amendment right and this wouldn’t happen… How many were killed in DC and LA, I’ll bet just as many, but the press makes sure we don’t hear about it!!

        Don’t outlaw guns, outlaw, outlaws, it’s simple as John Adams said, “A armed man is a citizen, a unarmed man is a slave”, the libs want you on their plantation, enjoy your masters, idiot’s.

      • eddie47d

        Quite often an armed man is a slave to himself and full of fear. A unarmed man attempts to live a peaceful life without a weapon and only has to fear the man with that gun.

      • Gordon

        Who was it that said that when we legalize alcohol all the problems would go away. When we legalize drugs all the problems will go away. When we legalize guns all the murder will go away. When we shrink the military all the wars will go away..? As CAH said above, negros are incapable of rational thought when they are angered or upset. mmmmmm?

      • gunsrule,commiesdrool

        You are right,we can’t stop the gun runners from plying their trade becuse now the Bubbament is gun running.

        • Hammer

          The State of Illinois has someof the toughest gun laws and restrictions in the country and Chicago’s gun laws are very severe! Works pretty well for them!

    • Gordon

      amen

    • Hammer

      Hey not so fast! . . .My grandparenets have been voting the straight democratic ticket for over a decade now. . .Straight from the Rose Hill Cemetery! Just one more reason the Democrats don’t whant the ID requirement for voting. If voters had to show ID, they could lose an election and that can not be allowed to happen.

  • http://omniv8 pete0097

    It would be interesting to see how many of those gun users were legal. I bet the percentage is low. They will just use this as another reason to ban guns from legal owners.

    I would like to see the statistics as to how many of the 5000 were gang or drug related. Sounds like a serious police problem to me.

Since many cops are veterans and have knowledge of weapons you would think they wouldn’t have been so reckless in wounding so many innocents.After the Aurora shooting all the macho gun owners came out and said they would have saved the day.(” If Only they had been there”). Nothing more than fabricated fantasy. Those police in NY proved beyond a reasonable doubt that there would be more casualties not less.

        2 shots in the head with a Government 45 (1911), worst case of suicide we ever had in this town.

    • Gordon

      serious question= If there were a street fire fight shoot out, and you were one of two officers in a police car, would you drive into the middle of a dozen blacks shooting it out? See you are smarter than that too.

    The “Chicago Values” explain the lack of respect for human life Obama and Holder have demonstrated in F&F.

  • JPF

    If Chicago IL represents all of America thanks to Obama, we are screwed. Perfect example of gun control, Chicago has strict gun laws but the thugs will always have them and use unarmed citizens for clay pigeon target practice. Romney may not be the best choice but he is a vehicle for putting America back on the right track. The train of destruction is speeding recklessly on tracks leading to a cliff abyss. It will take time to slow down the train hopefully before reaching the cliff. Stop and reverse to undo damage and repair.

    • eddie47d

      Put your thinking cap on for a change. Both sides of gangs have guns and both sides are shooting at each other so having more guns wouldn’t change a thing. Innocent bystanders do get killed but think again would they be able to respond to a moving and probably a speeding car? Would they or you be able to respond quick enough to take down some gang banger running to get away. I doubt it so keep that fantasy thinking cap on. Enough of this warm fuzzy IF ONLY I had a gun crap. This isn’t about someone trying to break into your home so cool the heroics.

      • Gordon

        OK, just thinking here. The street gangs with guns fight it out, avoiding the armed citizens everywhere, then sooner or later the gangs will be reduced in size just like the homosexuals who don’t reproduce. In a couple generations they should be self eliminating.

    Illinois and particularly Chicago have some of the toughest gun control laws in the country. There is NO CONCEALED CARRY law in Illinois. About the only ones that do not have guns are the innocents. Works quite well!

  • Chitown

    The only time BO comes to Chicago is to ‘Campaign’ and he stays in a hotel. His so-called home on the south side is very close to where all the shooting/killing are taking place. Over 500 killed this year. During Iraq war, more people were in Chicago than in Iraq. Black gangs are rapidly increase and their guns are bought illegally. Rahm & his socialist people are pushing gun control in Chicago, using the killings as ‘needing gun control’.

    Black mobs attacking people on the ‘Magnificent Mile’, some victims are severely injuried.

    His buddies controlling the city are shutting down police stations. CPD street force is down by 3K, new hires are only replacing the retired or quitting cops. CPD Hqtr. is like a ghost town w/empty cubicles. Cops are overworked, unable to take ‘time due’. Jails overwhelmed due to closing of stations. County jail bursting at the seams. They should ship all the gang bangers to the FEMA jails that are already prepared.

    “Since 2001, more than 2,000 troops have been killed in Afghanistan. In the same amount of time, more than 5,000 people in Chicago have died from a gunshot wound.”

    Perhaps we should pull everyone out of Chicago and send them to Afghanistan. They would be safer there.

    Here is a new story for the Anti-Gunners, Maybe every State in the Union should adopt this one, OR how many have it but was ammended.

    Why didn’t someone think of this before?

    Vermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont’s own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere.

    Maslack recently proposed a bill to register “non-gun-owners” and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.

    Maslack read the “militia” phrase of the Second Amendment as not only the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as a clear mandate to do so. He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a “monopoly of force” by the government as well as criminals. Vermont’s constitution states explicitly that “the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State” and those persons who are “conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms” shall be required to “pay such equivalent.”

    “Clearly,” says Maslack. “Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves, so that they are capable of responding to any situation that may arise.”

    Under the bill, adults who choose not to own a firearm would be required to register their name, address, Social Security Number, and driver’s license number with the state.
    “There is a legitimate government interest in knowing who is not prepared to defend the state should they be asked to do so,” Maslack says.

    Vermont already boasts a high rate of gun ownership along with the least restrictive laws of any state. It’s currently the only state that allows a citizen to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. This combination of plenty of guns and few laws regulating them has resulted in a crime rate that is the third lowest in the nation.

    “America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.”

    This makes sense! There is no reason why gun owners should have to pay taxes to support police protection for people not wanting to own guns and unwilling to protect themselves. Let them contribute their fair share and pay their own way.

    Sounds reasonable to me! Non-gun owners require more police to protect them and this fee should go to paying for their defense!

  • JimH

    As someone who lives 40 miles west of Chicago, I can tell you 99,999% of those shootings are gang related.
    Very few are by CPD. Unless “hizoner da mayer” is covering it up.
    If you listen to the local news most are reported as gang related.
    People who are willing to kill other people is the problem. A gun ban hasn’t worked and more laws will be just as useless.

    • Gordon

      Exactly. If many/most law abiding citizens carried concealed, then criminals would think twice about confronting someone they are not acquainted with. Few criminals expect to be shot, and fewer want to die….. unless they are CAH described blacks.

  • Freedom from gov’t

    I’m sorry killerbee that just sounds ridiculous to me. Police have alot more than just laws about guns to enforce so I truly wouldn’t see the savings or the point. On the other hand the sooner we rid society of criminals (irresponsible people) the better and safer it will be for all. We as a nation will never have complete control over guns or drugs, for that matter. I know it sounds crazy but we should use both of these to our advantage to purge society. Pass federal laws that end entitlement for any who can’t pass a drug test. At least that would cut off some of the monies that they need to carry on such activities.. Kinda like how we try to stop funding terrorism. Another thought that I have had for awhile is to poison confiscated drugs and put them back on the streets, so any who refuse to stop using (or living a more responsible life) will become violently ill or possibly even die from usage. Waiting or trying to rehabilitate these people is becoming very expensive and success rates are extremely low. It might be a good idea in our day and time of dna proving that crimes of violent nature, except for self defense of course, should be punishable by death. If we had federal laws for capital punishment and had daily televised executions maybe criminals will start getting the message. Reoccurance of killing,child molestation,rape,etc… should never be allowed to happen. Taking away guns isn’t the answer. Taking away the lives of these types of criminals will.

    • Gordon

      Recidivism is extremely high, depending on which figures you quote…. so public execution on the 6 oclock news would be helpful. 96+% of child molesters do it again after incarceration…… = 6 0clock news would help the children. Just the facts mam, just the facts.

    • 45caliber

      Freedom:

      Violent crime is NOT a federal law and is not enforced by them. Those are state laws. The feds don’t like it because it means that they don’t decide who is guilty and who isn’t. Let’s keep it as a state crime.

    Imagine that, in the most gun restricted place in the US!!!
    In my town, where quite a large percentage carry, NO ONE was shot.
    We must really be evil here!

  • GRAMPA

    If we declare Chicago a war zone It could get more foreign aide and we could train them to handle a gun. I am sure we have enough left over from fast and furious to provide them with all they need!
    wake up people this is the people you voted in. We don’t feel sorry for your ignorance for voting for someone because of the color of his skin. Mayor Rahm Emmanuel Is not one of you He is there for his own power only. When you stop acting like third world people and start having some higher moral standards, you will start living in a better community where life is valued. The first step is to realize that you need two parent homes. Marry and care for the girl you get pregnant and raise your children with respect for others and themselves.
    How many children’s lives have been wasted by neglect. It is not up to government to provide parenting. I do not candy coat what I say because I came from a poor family who lived in southwest Detroit. I did however have a very important thing. two parents. two strong parents that taught me to respect them, our neighbors,and myself. This combined with a strong work ethic, i was able to go forward and make a better life for myself, my wife, and kids. Yes it can be done but not by governments help. In this world you have only one you can depend on. If you fail yourself you have no hope.
    Good luck people of Chicago you will need it.
    God bless America.
