Chicago’s ruling political class seems especially proud of all of the “layers of security” their strict gun control offers their residents.  We see it as keeping the law-abiding good guys from being able to defend themselves from violent, predatory criminals running free without any deterrence in the form of knowing a victim might shoot back.

Who is right?

Well, without Chicago-style gun control, most of Illinois had a fairly uneventful weekend.  With Chicago style gun control, Chicago had a bloodbath.

We predict shameless Chicago politicians will point to the violence this weekend as a reason for more gun control.  For low-information politicians, why not double down on failed policies once again?  Sadly though, they will agitate for spreading Chicago-style gun control throughout Illinois to keep us all safe, just like the residents of Chicago are safe.

Also, it’s Hip Hop Against Violence Week.  That’s sure worked out well for Chicago’s Hip Hop culture, has it not?

As part of those events, there’s the HIP-HOP 4 PEACE PROGRAM:

The purpose of this project is to improve the image and unity within the Hip-Hop Community while reducing crime and violence in our schools, home and community. Celebrities, elected officials, community and business leaders will educate our youths about the consequences of illegal firearms, gang violence, criminal activities and war.   Celebrities will produce PSA’s, visit schools, youth centers, prisons and housing projects to reinforce our message and offer incentives to participants that help us in our efforts to reduce gun crimes, war and violence.  There will be support from our Artists & Student Mediation Board and Senate Minority Leader Malcolm Smith’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Gang Violence Prevention.  Participants that are incarcerated, recently released from jail, on parole, probation or a work release program will have an opportunity to volunteer their time towards mentoring at-risk youth and mediating disputes that could lead to violence.

Why are we just a little cynical?  Because it was a bloodbath in Chicago this past weekend.

Chicago (Sun-Times) – Five people have been killed and at least 15 others wounded — including a 12-year-old boy left in critical condition — in shootings around the city since Friday night.

The most recent fatal shooting happened about 2:10 a.m. Sunday in the 300 block of South Cicero in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side, police said. Edward Jordan, 53, of the 4900 block of West Lexington, was shot in the neck and later died at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Including this triple shooting in a park in the Englewood neighborhood (not even listed as one of American’s worst 25 neighborhoods, by the way) that occurred in a “memorial park” named after a tragic crime twenty years ago, according to Second City Cop.

Chicago (CBS Chicago) – About 9:15 p.m. Saturday, a shooter or shooters opened fire at a group of people at Ryan Harris Memorial Park in the 6800 block of South Lowe in the Englewood neighborhood. Shaneda Lawrence, 30, of the 9600 block of South Peoria, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at 12:46 a.m. at Stroger Hospital. A woman in her 20s was shot in the wrist, and a 24-year-old man was shot in the back.

  1. And the very folks RESPONSIBLE for the longstanding and ongoing Citizen disarmament that’s CAUSING, at least in part, this bloodbath are the very same people the NRA and ISRA say we should TRUST and NEGOTIATE WITH to create a permission slip structure for the exercise of a fundamental enumerated right.

    The very people so dedicated to Citizen disarmament politics are willing to witness this bloodshed endlessly in order to keep their unconstitutional bans in place and we are told to “be patient” and trust that negotiations will bring about a “good bill”.

    That’s malarkey!! It’s long past time to tell the truth. There is no partnering with the loyalist mentality that dominates Illinois politics and the Chicago machine. There is only standing up to them and bowing down before them. Time to PICK A SIDE openly and honestly. I choose to stand. No deals. No concession. No bowing. No begging. One COUNTRY – one LAW. One Supreme Law – the Second Amendment AS ENUMERATED! Shall not be infringed. Period.

  2. Watched from a front row seat last night as CPD did their best to keep a lid on the problem parts of town, including fixed post foot patrols, three officers left on a corner, no car, just there to keep the natives from acting up. They did not look happy.
    Strangely, little Italy, Chinatown, and the yuppie/hipster areas had none of this, and the night was quiet there. When are we going to quit pretending and identify that this stupid behavior has nothing to do with race and culture?
    And calling me names saves no one. This is a black cultural problem, and everyone ignores that. The soft bigotry of low expectations……


    Anon, no wonder you wish to remain anonymous. You’re either a troll or you’d be ashamed to have people know your name.

    This has EVERYTHING to do with race and/or culture, and it aint’ the WHITE race, son.

    In EVERY SINGLE ONE of these reported instances of violence, Nary a one has involved WHITES as the perpetrators. They’re always the VICTIMS.

    Hmm. Ann Coulter says it of the isloonist terrorists. Pretty soon it starts to be a description of the suspect.

    The suspects in these crimes are always black youths. ALWAYS.

    I’ll say it, cause the chicago dispatchers are prohibited by the P.C. leadership FROM SAYING IT.

    Guys, you’re ALWAYS looking for young black male suspects. Ignore the white guy. he didn’t do it.

    Not a racist thing to say, just a description of the suspects. Hat tip: Ann.

  4. Ken, I mis-typed my comment and indeed meant exactly as you stated. I’m not a troll, but in a position that revealing my conclusions would be professional suicide. The obvious conclusion everyone who works in this field is that its a racial issue, and compounded by a culture that glorifies violence, ignorance and irresponsibility. The time for sticking our head in the sand is ending. “Blame whitey” won’t cut it anymore. The most dangerous threat to a black male under 30 is another black male under 30. Jesse and Al will never admit it.
