Sounds like a target-rich environment.
Ah, Obama’s “civilian army” warming up a bit in Chitown.
"My kind of town, Chicago is" - NOT. Just keep disarming yourself, Chicago, and see what happens when the mobs know you are easy prey.
And this is why a 30 shot mag is necessary.
The former Obama chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel is doing a great job in Chicago. Under his visionary leadership Chicago is sinking into a cesspool of violence, indolence and hopelessness.
Gee. I guess that taught them. They sure won't do that again.
In an earlier time, that sentence might have concluded "...never to be seen again."
Yet liberals believe that gun control will make these urban areas safe. Forget politically correct propaganda. That mob is the sad result of the decadence that liberal policies spawn. Hypocrites like Rahm Emmanuel should enroll his kids in Chicago’s union controlled public schools and get a dose of reality.
ISRA Press Release:
One Rampage Too Many - Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy Has To Go
CHICAGO, March 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The following was released today by the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA):
The ISRA is once again calling upon Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to fire Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy . This latest call for McCarthy’s ouster comes after a mob of young thugs - estimated to be in the hundreds - swarmed the Magnificent Mile shopping district Saturday night and began beating dozens of innocent shoppers. This latest mob action appears to be the most serious in a string of events over the past two years involving gangs of youths randomly attacking shoppers on North Michigan Avenue.
“Just like dyeing the Chicago River green on St. Patty’s Day, cracking tourists’ heads on North Michigan Avenue is becoming a Windy City tradition,” commented ISRA Executive Director, Richard Pearson . “The first warm night of the year, and all hell breaks loose in the city’s most tony shopping district. It should be clear to everybody by now that Supt. McCarthy has lost control of the city. What are things going to be like when the weather really heats up? What has to happen before Emanuel wakes up and gives the nod to a more effective top cop?”
“The ISRA has been cautioning folks against making Chicago a leisure time destination for a few years now,” continued Pearson. “Unless you’re the kind of person who wants to be terrorized, beaten, raped or robbed, then you should definitely find another place to vacation. For the law-abiding citizen, Chicago has become just too dangerous to visit.”
“While vicious mobs have been busily destroying Chicago’s tourism industry, Mayor Emanuel and Supt. McCarthy have been busy as well vilifying law abiding firearm owners,” said Pearson. “If they spent more time thwarting crime and less time trying to take guns away from hunters and sportsmen, then Chicago might be a better place in which to live and work.”
“The sad events of Saturday night will certainly bolster efforts to pass concealed carry legislation down in Springfield,” said Pearson. “Good people have a right to defend themselves against lawless thugs. I’m positive that the prospect of encountering armed citizens would make such flash mobs vaporize in a hurry.”
The ISRA is the state’s leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. For more than a century, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.

Sad to say, but...where’s the Mafia when you need them?
Predictable, everywhere liberals get a foothold. Disarm the populace and watch the welfare fed thugs go into action. Economic activity fizzles and the place turns into a wasteland. Ask politicians for the answer and all they ask for is more “funding.” Wash, rinse, repeat.
They’ve pretty much got it all down pat now with the fourth or fifth generation of this CRAP.
Amazing how every newscaster reporting on this is a well-spoken pulled together African-American. Every single network carrying this story.
Actually, I think Obama’s civilian army is the DHS. These are just “his people.”
Yes, but he walks so gracefully. Emanuel was a ballerina, you know.
Perhaps... maybe we should give them something like midnight basketball to keep them occupied. /s
Ever notice how these “Amish” (sic) punks are so brave when there in a crowd and are cowardly twerps when by themselves.
The mobs can have Chicago. Eff ‘em and eff Mayor Ballerina.
The current unjust “justice” department will not prosecute feral street gangs because they are the “oppressed” “downtrodden” “etcbull$h!t”
The left is trying to take away guns from normal, non-violent citizens. (Translation: White)
Therefore ........... (you figure it out)
Ever wonder what those “well-spoken pulled together African-American” newscasters really think about this sort of thing? I have, but I don’t think we’ll ever find out.
