(CNSNews.com) A gun-rights group says that Chicagos Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel bears some responsibility for the murder rate in the Windy City, which now totals 470 homicides this year, because of the strict gun-control laws there.
Rahm Emanuel has some blood on his hands, said Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, in a statement. He and the city council have done everything possible to prevent law-abiding Chicago residents from exercising their restored Second Amendment rights in the two years since the Supreme Courts landmark McDonald ruling.
In June 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 against a handgun ban in the city of Chicago in McDonald v. Chicago.
But just four days after the Supreme Court decision, the Chicago City Council adopted the Responsible Gun Owners Ordinance which, among other restrictions, requires prospective gun owners to take a firearm safety course at a gun range in order to obtain a permit to own a gun in a home. At the same time, the city councils decision placed a virtual ban on gun ranges in the city.

Rahm Emanuel has some blood on his hands...
Now, now. Lets not forget the tremendous job he’s done at keeping the evil Chik-fil-A out of Chicago.
If it were not for the fact that the all the dead in Chicago vote DemoRat, every election, for eternity, the Ballerina would murder himself out of power.
This man needs a crisis to govern, he will turn this into a reason to raise more tax money and take away more civil rights.
It’s obvious. The left DELIBERATELY and intentionally, with full knowledge and awareness, lets criminals keep their illegal guns, while it moves closer to taking guns from honest, law-abiding citizens.
That way the crooks can just walk right in and take what is “rightfully” theirs.

Government’s incessant meddling with gun control will only exacerbate the problem.
Politicians do not fear thieves, thieves are smart enough to leave armed people alone. Politicians fear the people, who understand that Politicians are thieves. Politicians know that gun control only works on law abiding people.
If a politician is for gun control, you know that he knows he deserves being killed and is afraid of the people.
Chicago is quite the quagmire isn’t it?
Wow, 470 deaths already, and the year’s not out yet. (Last year it was 445.)
And that number doesn’t include injuries, psychological trauma, families ruined, etc. Way to go, Democratic Chicago.
AND YET, fraud aside, all these council members and The Mayor were elected by the citizenry .....
They are reaping what they wanted. Free will and all that.
Don't forget, The Chicago City Council members do have concealed carry.
I speak as one who lives in the shadow of Shitcago.
