Meanwhile, Peace Reigns Supreme in Gun Free Chicago

Or not, as the case might be. (h/t Larwyn’s Linx)

Chicago reached “a tragic number” today, according to Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy: Its homicide total for the year hit 500, the highest annual total since 2008.

How can that be? Not only are criminals not allowed to own guns in Chicago, nobody else is either. Clearly they’re making this up. How can anybody be killed when guns, through careful and thorough “reasonable gun legislation”, have been made to automagically disappear?

Largely contributing to the spike was the unusual number of homicides that occurred during the early part of the year, when the city experienced unseasonable warmth.

Oh, that’s it of course!


In the first three months of the year, homicides ran about 60 percent ahead of the 2011 rate.


There, that wasn’t so hard, was it?

    What’s different in Chicago since 2008?

    I mean besides the leadership?

    Ya think he might be letting this number run up because it suits his agenda?

    Oh. And FOIST!!

    I actually heard a certain anti-gun priest, on my trusty radio, say guns should be “titled” like automobiles. See how they operate? They equate autos with firearms in their justification of converting a Right into a privilege.

    Ya gotta hand it to these cretins: they never give up. I tried to call and ask if the priest believed our Rights come from God, but they weren’t taking questions for him. Imagine that.

    I wrote about this last night. My opening went:

    Well, that bastion of good government and a disarmed public, Chicago, has had 500 people murdered this year. A fair number of these murders were with guns that aren’t legal in that city. Now, you may ask how this can be?

    How can so many people have been murdered with guns? Isn’t Chicago a gun free city? Well, for all intents and purposes, yes it is. That means that only the criminals have guns. The regular people don’t. Since the criminals know that the law abiding people are unarmed, killing them is very low risk. (Unless they happen to commit this crime in front of a cop. Then he might actually get arrested)

    Of course I’ll be adding a link back here momentarily. :em01:

    Not so fast, there, yer Eminence!

    Around noon Friday, News Affairs released a statement to clarify that Chicago’s murder total remains at 499. A department spokesperson said a death from a few days ago was reclassified as a death investigation.

    It’s the Chicago Way. Now if we can just get the gangbangers to hold their fire for 48 hours…

    But by 2:20 p.m., the spokesperson said the department was again going with 500.

    Crap. Can’t even trick them with the 48 hour rule.

    NR Pax growls and barks:

    OK, I did the math.

    500 murders = 41.6 deaths/month. This breaks down to about 10/week.
    In an area with the kind of gun control that the hoplophobes want.

    Mind you, I don’t know what the breakdown is with the type of weapon used in the 500 murders, but it’s clearly time for us to wall that city off and let nature take its course.

    Someday a future historian will write “The Decline and Fall of Western Civilization.” And I have no doubt that the loss of martial spirit will likewise be listed as the reason for that demise. Let us hope that unborn academic will be more merciful to us than Gibbon was to the Romans.

    Obama fiddled while Chicago burned.

    You ain’t from around here, are you son. The gangbangers are the foot soldiers for the aldermen. They are “The get out the vote” machine. If you want to run and the gang in your ward can get you 25,000 votes you are virtually assured victory. Why do you suppose Jesse Jackson Sr. goes to the County Jail to register voters?

    Conversely, what could the gangs possibly get in return from the politicians? I mean besides big paying gubmint jobs with instant job security and a pension?

    Fact: People with concealed carry permits are:

    • 5.7 times less likely to be arrested for violent offenses than the general public
    • 13.5 times less likely to be arrested for non-violent offenses than the general public


    In Texas, citizens with concealed carry permits are 14 times less likely to commit a crime. They are also five times less likely to commit a violent crime

    Fact: A different study concludes that the four year violent crime arrest rate for CCW (licensed concealed carry) holders is 128 per 100,000. For the general population, it is 710 per 100,000. In other words, CCW holders are 5.5 times less likely to commit a violent crime.

    Fact: Criminals don’t register their guns.

    Myth: Gun registration will help police find suspects.

    Fact: Registration is required in Hawaii, Chicago, and Washington D.C. Yet there has not been a single case where registration was instrumental in identifying someone who committed a crime.

    Criminals very rarely leave their guns at the scene of the crime. Would-be criminals also virtually never get licenses or register their weapons.

    Fact: In 2005, agencies reported 1,400 arrests of persons denied a firearm or permit; but the U.S. Department of Justice accepted only 135 of those denial cases for prosecution.
    Given the poor performance of the Federal government in prosecuting felons identified by an instant background check trying to buy firearms, there is little to support firearm licensing as a crime prevention measure.

    According to LIBS roughly 1.5 children die every day due to a gun..

    Care to guess how many die in Automobiles?

    The answer is: over 13 per day… That’s Thirteen a day…

    Now if your 1.5 figure is an “alarming rate” as you state just what does that make the 13+ per day for automobile’s ??

    You better get hot on banning cars…

    Oh and 4 children a day die from parental neglect and abuse…

    And How about this:

    Total number of abortions in the
    U.S. 1973-2011: 54.5 million+

    234 abortions per 1,000 live births (according to the Centers for Disease

    Abortions per year: 1.2 million

    Abortions per day: 3,288

    Abortions per hour: 137

    9 abortions every 4 minutes

    1 abortion every 26 seconds


    Libs are idiots. We are actually suppose to believe that libs care about the children. They KILL over a million a year ….

    even better: nuke them from orbit. we get rid of a cancer in the heart of America, we significantly reduce corruption, we significant’y reduce the welfare rolls, we destroy their voting rolls, so they’ll have to work harder to get their dead voters to the now radioactive polls. I fail to see any downside to the whole thing, especially if it is a day with winds calm both at ground level and aloft.
