Is it the availability of guns that’s the problem in Chicago?


During the weekend the NRA convention was in Indianapolis, 75,000 NRA members turned out, many if not most of them armed.  The Indianapolis Metro Police said it was the quietest weekend for crime in downtown Indy in the entire month.

That same weekend in Chicago, without 75,000 armed good guys in town visiting, it was the usual bloody weekend with dozens shot, a few killed and thousands of other crimes committed.

And we weren’t aware that the Chicago indoor football team name was the Slaughter.  We couldn’t think of a more appropriate team name for the Windy City.


The Windy City’s spring slaughter season

by Ted Nugent

(World Net Daily) –  Just as birds are genetically programmed to fly south in the fall and my sons and I head for Alaska for our ritual spring father/son bear hunt and fishing trip, when the weather begins to warm up this time of year the urban gangsters increase their perpetual slaughter of other gangsters and innocents.

Again, on cue, this past Easter weekend in Chicago, eight people were killed and 44 more were wounded. As the Carpenter’s once sang: We’ve only just begun …

We can expect the Chicago “gun-free-zone” gangster-on-gangster carnage to continue throughout the summer and well into the fall. It happens year after year. I’m surprised that Las Vegas hasn’t developed a betting game to wager on how many gangster-related shootings will occur in Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Newark, New Orleans, Philly, Compton, Oakland, etc. It’s a sure bet on all levels as long as denial goons like Rahm Emanuel and Mike Bloomberg continue to harass and infringe on law-abiding gun owners instead of looking into recidivistic gangsters.

The definition of insanity, anyone? How’s that goofy firearm owners ID card thing working out for ya all, Chicago?

Like a broken record, liberal excuse makers blame guns, gun manufacturers, bullets, magazines, the NRA and deer hunters for the gangster-related violence that plagues certain areas of our cities. They believe – or at least say they believe – that banning guns would reduce the carnage.

They are wrong. It never has and never will. It is a lie, and they know it.

Surprisingly, Mayor Rahm Emanuel had it just about right when, in response to the Easter mayhem, he said it’s not about what the cops can do to reduce the violence, but rather what parents can do to instill values in their children.

Whoa! Stop the presses!

So it has come to this: asking parents to instill basic values in their children. Does the mayor also tell Windy City parents not to feed their kids glass sandwiches for dinner?

There’s more biting commentary at the source.  Read it.  It’s delicious.


He sums it up:

But Mayor Emanuel isn’t honest. He’s cunning, manipulative and deceitful, straight out of his fellow Chicagoan pal Obama’s blame-game playbook. He falsely places the blame for the violence on guns instead of focusing on the ridiculously obvious problem for all the bloody mayhem and chaos in the Windy City and other cities: liberalism, which has created lost and dependent generations for decades.
