"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.

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.

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.

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)

Whenever you have a violent crime and the media doesn't mention the assailants race, it will turn out that the perp was black nearly 100% of the time.

If someone were to assemble a six man team of marathon running knife fighters in a “v” formation, they would reduce this mob like a hot knife through butter. Their mission would be simple: keep the formation, and give 4-6” hopefully abdominal gashes on every “yoot” within range. And keep moving.

By the time the report of dozens of cut and bleeding “wilder’s” started reaching the police, the team would be blocks away and making good their escape in an unmarked van.

Importantly, this many bladed weapons victims at once would quickly overwhelm the nearby hospitals, so mortality through “bleeding out” would be high. By the time the authorities got it together, the team would be a state away, all forensic evidence eliminated, and they would be sipping cocktails at different tables in a sports bar, while rooting for their favorite team.

This problem is not going to be solved until a lot of miscreant bodies are found floating down the Chicago River.

And it would work, for this quarter. Anyone with an ounce of brains (on both sides) would retreat at this point, mend their ways, and keep clear of these situations. However, those hardcores (read MANIPULATED NO BRAINS) of the party would then start (or be goaded into) the escalation.

Chicago burning? Oh yeah baby! Makes no difference if the point you are trying to prove is pointless, tear it all down! We'll show THEM!!!

Unfortunately, I think we're already at and getting ready to move past that point... Make your plans now, because the game is afoot...

The rat pack flash mob spring debut has begun, and this is just the beginning. There aren’t enough police in Chicago. End of summer last year there were several police officers on each corner of the mag mile on weekends. Probably with colder weather there was minimum presence now. I’ve walked all over that city and for the amount of people in comparison to police there’s literally no police presence at time. And while the candycane liberal lightweight cosmopolitian metrosexual pansies in that city and liberal fascist political scum whine about gun control, they don’t even consider the deadly work of a blade, which can disable muscle and ligaments stopping mobility of body parts faster than bullets with silent efficiency. Jugular, clavical, brachial, femoral arteries are lethal hits too.

While a gun can be handy, I’d recommend a fixed blade, folder, and a blackjack for Chi-town streets. Just bring some handiwipes for the mess.

What Cyrus said at the beginning of The Warriors is now coming true:

Can you count, suckers? I say, the future is ours... if you can count!

Now, look what we have here before us. We got the Saracens sitting next to the Jones Street Boys. We’ve got the Moonrunners right by the Van Cortlandt Rangers. Nobody is wasting nobody. That... is a miracle. And miracles is the way things ought to be.

You’re standing right now with nine delegates from 100 gangs. And there’s over a hundred more. That’s 20,000 hardcore members. Forty-thousand, counting affiliates, and twenty-thousand more, not organized, but ready to fight: 60,000 soldiers! Now, there ain’t but 20,000 police in the whole town. Can you dig it?
Gang Members: Yeah.
Cyrus: Can you dig it?
Gang Members: Yeah!
Cyrus: Can you dig it?
Gang Members: YEAH!

Now, here’s the sum total: One gang could run this city! One gang. Nothing would move without us allowing it to happen. We could tax the crime syndicates, the police, because WE got the streets, suckers! Can you dig it?
Gang Members: YEAH!

The problem in the past has been the man turning us against one another. We have been unable to see the truth, because we have fighting for ten square feet of ground, our turf, our little piece of turf. That’s crap, brothers! The turf is ours by right, because it’s our turn. All we have to do is keep up the general truce. We take over one borough at a time. Secure our territory... secure our turf... because it’s all our turf!

Can you count, suckahs?
