Posted on 06/25/2012 12:04:13 PM PDT by John Semmens
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says a federal courts overturning of a city firearms ordinance wont stop us from carrying out our over all crime strategy.
The problem from our perspective is that too many people have access to guns, Emanuel asserted. We wont have law and order until everyone except the police is disarmed. The City must have a monopoly on the use of deadly force. Only then will the balance of terror be sufficiently one-sided to ensure peace.
As for the courts ruling, Emanuel suggested that the court may take whatever position it likes in the courtroom. But we control the streets. We will take guns away from those we dont want to have them.
if you missed any of this week's other semi-news posts you can find them at...
when they open their mouths, the truth comes out.
“monopoly on deadly force”?
Right on Rahm Fuehrer, right on.
The future of Amerika.
Excellent sarcasm there!
This is how liberals actually think, so the “semi” satire tag is almost not applicable.
It appears you might be responding to the Semi-News portion of Mr Semmens’ excellent post and not to the Semi-Satire portion. Although I’d like to hear that response, too, for good measure.
Good luck getting guns, knives, clubs, and other deadly weapons out of the hands of the criminal class.
When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away.
:) Enjoyed John. Another good one.
Typical RAT deception. The ruling was not on “taking guns away from those we don’t want to have them” it was about something else entirely.
Go ahead Rahm take all the guns away from the Latin Kings, Insane Unknowns and the rest of the Gangbangers. Be a hero.
RESPECT MY AUTHORITY!
President Demands Romney Stop Criticizing Him
President Obama demanded that his presumptive Republican challenger, Governor Mitt Romney, put aside his criticisms of me until the issue of who is to be the next president is decided by the voters.
I would point out that we have one president at a time and one administration at a time, and I think that for the sake of the country Mr. Romney should forebear making any statements that might be construed in a negative fashion by this countrys enemies, the President said. The implication that there might not be 100% support for the Administrations policies gives those who wish us ill an opening they could use to undermine the peoples confidence in their government.
President Obama pointed out that there are many secrets of which Mr. Romney is unaware. Consequently, a lot of what he has to say can only be ignorant twaddle. By persisting in his efforts to assail my record he risks not only making himself look foolish, but endangers the well-being of every man, woman, and child in America.
The important thing is that voters should remember that Im on the job 24 hours a day, everyday, working for their benefit, Obama argued. It was my decision to kill Osama bin-Laden. I meet weekly with my advisers to determine whether anyone else needs to be killed to protect this country. Mr. Romney has never had to make such weighty decisions. Whether he even could make them is something voters may want to ponder.
