If gun control worked then Obama’s Chicago should be the safest place in the world because it is nearly impossible for law abiding citizens to get a gun. However, Chicago is now the top murder city in America topping New York which has three times as many people.
The latest mass shooting took place last evening just after 10 pm. Thirteen people including a 3 year old boy were shot at the basketball courts in a neighborhood called Back of the Yards.
How in the world did this happen? Very few people in Chicago have guns and a carry permit is as rare as an honest politician. Police believe the shootings were gang related so it is safe to assume that none of the guns were obtained legally and none of them were registered (unless they were stolen from the registered owner).
Do you mean to tell me that the gang bangers, you know criminals, did not obey the gun laws? Well perhaps if we had passed EVEN tougher gun laws like say, background checks this would not have happened (background checks are already required).
Right, because criminals would submit to a background check. Criminals do not buy guns from sources that require background checks. Private sales are supposed to have a background check and selling guns without doing them is illegal which would make the gun seller as much of a criminal as the buyer. So it is reasonable to conclude that this was not some issue where the check was not completed when it otherwise could have. It is obvious the guns used were from an illegal source, obtained illegally and sold illegally.
Well hell, that never happens. I mean it is not like Barack Obama and Eric holder were illegally shipping firearms to other countries. It is not like New York police officers have ever been caught smuggling guns in and selling them. It just could not happen.
Heroin is illegal to buy, sell, or use and yet people buy, sell, and use it each and every day. So laws banning something do not stop people from doing what is illegal.
Laws banning guns do not stop people from using guns for violence. Chicago is a prime example as was demonstrated last night.
This will not stop the gun grabbers from trying to impose more gun control. For some reason whenever a criminal uses a gun illegally the gun grabbers want to disarm those of us who had nothing to do with it.
Chicago is an example of what happens in every place where guns are banned. The cities in America with the highest rates of violence with guns are the ones with the toughest gun control.
Gun control does not work. If the daughter of the Former PM of the UK can be held at gunpoint in a nation that collected nearly all the guns and made owning them illegal then gun control does not work.
The reality is this is not a call for gun control it is a call for people control.
Once they have the guns they can control the people. Think the tyranny is bad now?
Wait until they do not fear you as an armed free person…
Never surrender, never submit.
In 2012 more people were murdered in Chicago than in New York even though Chicago has a third of the population. The linked article has a lot of information regarding the murders and how many of them are related to bad people who use firearms but the overarching theme is that nearly every city on the list has a strict gun control policy.
Another reality is that many, if not all, are heavily populated with Democrats and run by liberals.
There is no denying that liberalism and Democrat leadership are the root cause of the high murder rates because liberal policies encourage this kind of behavior.
Liberals do not believe in personal responsibility. One needs look no further than Barack Obama who has never taken any responsibility for anything bad that happens under him. He blames everything bad on George Bush or the Republicans in Congress or the TEA Party.
He is quick to take credit for anything good. He took credit for the death of Osama bin Laden even though the military took him out.
Look at the two politicians recalled in Colorado. They are blaming voter fraud, misinformation and anything they can think of rather than the reality which is they thwarted the will of the people.
These murder cities, led by Chicago, have dense populations of liberals who support liberal politicians so they can get their “free” stuff. Get me my food stamps and Obama phones and I will vote for you while my children and peers are out knocking off liquor stores and committing welfare fraud.
The criminal elements in these cities prey on the poor and the defenseless. It is nearly impossible for law abiding citizens to own or carry firearms in Chicago and many of these other murder cities. The criminals, on the other hand, get plenty of weapons including firearms.
Liberalism is hazardous to your health.
This is Obama’s Chicago. It is his buddy Rahm’s Chicago.
Obama was a ghetto organizer before he got into office and those ghettos are now well organized.
Don’t worry though. In keeping with the lack of responsibility inherent in liberalism they will blame this on everything from Bush, to guns, to poverty. Remember, the people who are doing this are not responsible for their actions.
They must be victims of something other than the liberalism and liberal policies that they have in common.
These cities have been turned into shooting galleries and murder-hoods.
Never surrender, never submit.

The Trayvon Martin shooting did not make the national stage until the race hustlers saw a Jewish sounding name associated with the shooter. At that time the Jesses and Als of the race hustling movement started talking about a white man shooting a black kid and not being prosecuted for it. When it was discovered that George Zimmerman was Hispanic (that is how HE identifies himself) the race hustlers and their enablers in the media invented a new term, the white Hispanic.
Now that George Zimmerman has been rightly vindicated the race hustling industry has become even more unhinged. Across the nation minority groups, revved up by the New Black Panthers and the Sharpton race hustling enterprise, have gone into overdrive. There are protests, there are acts of violence and there are acts of vandalism. These things are taking place because those who thrive on racial discord are working overtime.
A Chicago church has an electronic sign in front with the message; “It Is Safe To Kill Black People In Amerikkka.”
There is a lot of opposition to the kkk in the name of our country because it is claimed that this divides us even more along racial lines and is a message of hate. The church defended the sign by saying:
The message on the sign is not a message of hate. It is a message of awakening and call to action. It is a message not intended to divide, but to cause honest reflection in order to make this country a better place for ALL.
The use of “kkk”, was done to call attention to the fact that, just as in the ‘glory days of the KKK, it appears far too often that the murder of African Americans is permitted, and the mistreatment of African Americans historically and currently is far too cavalierly considered.
Let us think about this for a moment. The church is contending that the not guilty verdict of Zimmerman is indicative of a society that far too often allows the murder of black children and that the message is not one of hate.
OK, but the majority of blacks (kids or adults) murdered in this nation are murdered by other blacks. The sign indicates that the issue here is white on black and the reference to KKK is what cements that point of view. Forgetting for a moment that the KKK came out of the Democrat Party and focusing on the reference to white hate against blacks leaves us with the reality that the church really is spewing a hate filled message and is inciting violence directed toward white people.
The truth of the matter is that Chicago is a dangerous place for black children and it is dangerous because other black children MURDER them. Greater than 90% of the murders of blacks are committed by other blacks. Chicago, a gun control city, black children are dying left and right (mostly from gunshots). Where is the outrage?
Where are messages from the church telling blacks to stop murdering each other? Where has the outrage been all these years as hundreds of black kids are murdered each year in Chicago alone?
Why is this church stoking racial discontent by implying that blacks are dying at the hands of whites when all the evidence shows otherwise?
This church and the race hustlers in this country do not care about black on black crime. They don’t really care that black kids are being murdered. They only care when the murderer is not black because they can whip the less educated and uniformed into frenzy and demand more from government. They get to justify their existence by ginning up the rare occurrence of white on black murder.
They should be ashamed of themselves and they are responsible for the violence.
Here is my message to this church and the race hustlers.
CLEAN UP YOUR OWN HOUSE AND START HOLDING BLACKS TO THE SAME STANDARD YOU WANT NON BLACKS HELD TO WITH REGARD TO MURDER.
Do it for the children…
Never surrender, never submit.
AND EVERYONE ELSE…
Jonylah Watkins was only six months old when her life was suddenly ended by a gang banger with a gun. Thirty-three year old Koman Willis, a man with documented gang ties, shot the baby as she sat on her father’s lap in his parked vehicle. Jonathan Watkins was the intended target because he allegedly stole Willis’ video game console.
Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation yet it is among the most dangerous places to live. More people are murdered with guns in Chicago than in most places (if not all) in this nation and certainly more than any place where the right to keep and bear arms is not infringed.
We have been through this before. Criminals do not obey gun laws so people like Willis will continue to use firearms illegally. Law abiding citizens are stripped of their rights while those with no regard for the law continue to obtain and use firearms illegally. There is no doubt that gun control and the failure of the judicial system resulted in the death of this innocent child. You see, Willis has 38 prior arrests so it is highly unlikely he is allowed to own a firearm. It is also a mystery why a person with such a record is not behind bars where he could not shoot people.
Chicago is an open fire murder zone where people are shot and killed each and every day despite the fact that guns control is extremely strict there.
This is the progressive dream city and it still has gun murders. The reality of this escapes progressive politicians like Barack Obama and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley who continue to harp on gun control as a means to end gun violence. Disarming law abiding citizens will not make them safer. There is no clearer example than Chicago but the progressives push on. They only want the agents of government to have firearms.
While gun control certainly plays a part in the violence in Chicago it is not the only reason. There is a fundamental breakdown in the family unit and in societal norms. Society is definitely in decline when members of the society think an appropriate response to the theft of a video console is to murder the alleged thief. When neighbors are so terrified that they will not cooperate with police, when young men father children with many women or women have many children with multiple men there is a problem. That problem is exacerbated in the generational welfare state.
People lose all self respect and all respect for life. The code of the street and the gang becomes the norm and we end up with babies being murdered because a father allegedly stole a video console.
While politicians beg gang members to stop shooting children and churches beg the community to come together and repent the violence continues.
It continues because people are no longer accountable for their actions. It happens because people become dependent on the government and lack the responsibility and social mores that keep a society together.
Basically, people become animals and act like them while an overburdened judiciary keeps turning criminals back to the street and government keeps digging in deeper to keep people on the plantation.
It is sad that Jonylah was murdered but even sadder that her death was not an isolated incident in the jungle known as Chicago.
It is also sad that the gun will be blamed for this as it is for all gun related murders.
Never surrender, never submit.

Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy has blamed everything for the plethora of gun related deaths in his city. He has blamed Sarah Palin and is now blaming the Second Amendment. Yes, the right to keep and bear arms is evidently the problem in Chicago where the right is infringed. You see, in Chicago there are very strict gun control laws that violate the US Constitution.
Yet the city is deluged with gun violence and gun crime.
The reason is obvious; criminals do not obey the law. If there was ever a fine example of how gun bans do not work, Chicago is it. The reality that gun control does not stop gun crime has been debated time and again and is generally pointless since brain dead liberals in the anti gun crowd do not understand common sense.
The same people who use all sorts of illicit drugs (those banned under law) think that laws banning guns will stop people from using them illegally.
The bigger issue here is that the police chief of a major city is expressing his view that part of our Constitution is a problem and that those who follow that Constitution are a threat to public safety.
The real threat to our safety is public servants like McCarthy who are not upholding their oaths. These people are dangerous because they believe it is Ok to ignore the Supreme Law of the Land to push their agenda. People who do this are the very reason we have a Second Amendment. It is in place to protect a preexisting right so that we the people have the means to fight tyranny within their own government.
McCarthy wants guns banned and the Second Amendment ignored so he and other like him can do as they wish and can abuse people at will.
They are dangerous and are a stark reminder of how important the Second Amendment actually is.
McCarthy believes the Second Amendment limits citizens to only owning smooth bore muskets. First of all, the Constitution does not limit citizens; it limits the government (which is why liberals do not like it). Second of all, the Second Amendment does not prescribe any particular type of firearm. Additionally, if McCarthy thinks that the Constitution only applies to items available when it was written then he and his officers need to give up their modern firearms. He needs to stop speaking on TV, the radio and the Internet and limit his communication to the newspapers and the US Mail.
McCarthy, not content with his anti Second Amendment lunacy, also said that judges and legislators should rely on opinion polls when interpreting the Constitution.
I imagine that would only pertain to things that liberals agree with. Public opinion polls showed that a huge majority of people were (and still are) opposed to Obamacare (is it any wonder why?).
What about any opinion polls showing that Obama should be impeached? How about those where people think Obama is not eligible to hold office?
In fact, the majority of people polled support our right to keep and bear arms so McCarthy would be SOL on that issue as well.
People like this are dangerous. He is unable to police his violent city and he is an idiot. He needs to be replaced and Chicago needs to stop violating the Constitution.
But in typical liberal fashion he blames everything that is NOT the cause of the problem.
If Obama had a son..
Never surrender, never submit.
