What would happen if people in Chicago were permitted to freely possess and carry?
It would be fun to try it and find out.
If banning guns worked, Chicago would be a model of safety. Their ban wasn’t meant to keep criminals from getting them, only law abiding citizens.
Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. Yet there have been 41 murders in the month of January which puts it right on track to meet last year’s 500+. That’s 2x what LA has and 4x what New York City has, and Chicago ranks 3rd in size behind those two cities. Holder’s people just like to kill.
Cheap shots from corrupt liberal bosses. While the DC Supreme court decisions may have paved the way for law-abiding citizens to rearm themselves legitimately, Chicago’s murder statistics aren’t affected by them. That is the sole boon resulting from corrupt local government’s choice to ignore the real, ethinic/racial problem.
It’s against the law to sell crack or meth in Chicago too... and it’s against the law in all the surrounding cities. And ALL over the country too.
Does the above fact have a chance seeping into the brain of a New York Times person? Will they ‘get’ what that might mean?
Does giving organized crime a billion dollar industry seem like a good idea to ‘oh so liberal’ journalists? Might there be implications and unintended consequences?
Are they stupid?
As expected, the “solution” offered by the article is to make the infringements even stricter, make the penalties tougher, and apply them across the entire nation!
Not only are the victims mostly poor minorities, the perps pose no threat to the elite.
They’re not going anywhere near these neighborhoods without a plenty of armed security and a pre-visit security blanket.
But MN dems invite more thugs here from there then won’t why crime want up.
Rev Acree needs to get out of Chicago a little more... The lessons that need to be learned from Chicago have nothing to do with extending their stupid laws to more civilized areas of the country. Clueless... totally clueless.
Just pass a law requiring registration and buying a license.
They get it. They’re running our country.
