500 peeps is equivalent to my kids’ whole grade school.

Where’s the outrage? Doesn’t this upset anybody in Chicago?

“How many by legal gun owners?”

The question should be, “How many are NRA members”

Surely they have THOSE stats.

Cook County’s gun CRIME laws are among the laxest in the nation.

I say put up walls around these slay zones, drop a bunch of machetes from helicopters and put it all on PPV cable.

Time to think out of the box here.

That’s what I’m talking about.If these idiots ever figure out that shooting people is serious work and not a social event/photo-op,then we’ve got a problem.

How long do you think these”Pros”would last in a shoot-out against someone with serious skills?If they send these guys to take away our guns,well-I almost pity them.Almost.

I remember when “Law and Order” was considered a government responsibility. How could we ever entrust our protection to a government composed of crooked judges, corrupt bureaucrats, creepy legislators, an ignorant electorate, all led by the biggest liar ever. Show me way to next Gun show.

Biggest gun show east of the Mississippi is taking place this weekend at the Dulles Expo Center in VA. It’s a three day event with record crowds.

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says the city has logged its 500th homicide of the year.

Is that a problem? Seems like we got rid of 500 violent thugs who would have just added to the clogging & congestion of our penal system, including paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to feed, clothe & house these thugs, all paid for by the taxpayers.

.
McCarthy issued a statement Friday calling the milestone a "tragic number that is reflective of the gang violence and proliferation of illegal guns that have plagued some of our neighborhoods."

What do you (McCarthy) mean? Proliferation of illegal guns? You mean the criminals refuse to obey the strictest gun control laws in the country? According to a libturd's mindset, that just cannot be! Oh the horror of it all!

This is not random, these fellows are targeting each other. Government offers half hearted solutions like “We have to get guns off the street”, IMHO they use them to scare people into thinking “guns” are the problem, I’m not scared of any gun!
