446 School age children shot in Chicago so far this year with strongest gun laws in country
Fire Andrea Mitchell ^ | December 19, 2012

The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media.

In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost two weeks to go.

So why isn’t this news worthy? Is it because it would embarrass those anti second amendment nuts who brag about Chicago’s tough gun laws? Is it because most of the kids who were shot and killed were minorities? Or is it because the corrupt media doesn’t want to show Chicago in a bad light? Amazingly, no Obama crocodile tears either.

No matter how tough the gun laws are, the crazed, nut jobs will find a way to get them and if they so chose, use them. No draconian law can stop this, no matter how well intentioned the law is, or if it’s just about leftists grabbing power from citizens and taking away their constitutional rights.

“school age children”...? Oh, you mean the 16-19 year old gangsters who are blowing each other away?

Are these little innocent kindergartners, or are they, by and large, feral teenage youts?

When that statistic is brought out by the MSM the anti-gun nuts will come out and say “See that! Now we really need a gun ban” - so with that logic, we ought to ban abortion tools since 1.4 million kids are killed a year in the US.

Now, I love the idea that the gang-bangers are policing themselves.

But, can’t we find one or two innocent ones that can bring suit (somehow?!?) because they were deprived of their God given rights to self defense? The assclowns who made and enforced these draconian laws must be held to account!!

Another example... Isn’t there one teacher or administrator in Newton who WOULD HAVE had a weapon if she were allowed?? Who deprived her of that right? The person who deprived her is culpable in her murder.

I wonder how many innocent unborn babies have been slaughtered in Chi-town this year?

This is the sort of information that bears repeating during this “national dialogue”. Thank you for posting.

It's Chi-town... Some of those gang bangers are probably getting started even younger than that.

Point is still valid though. Chicago has massive gun control in place and yet... Lots of gun violence.

It’s amazing how these children just don’t matter to the media.

It’s because the perps are mostly minorities.

The left deliberately leaves guns in the hands of criminals while actively working to take them away from normal people.

“Children” means whatever a leftist says it means.

For socialized medicine , it means up to and including age 26.

Get your meme right, pal.

Current MSM focus is ‘assault weapons’. It’s unlikely these yutes were killed by those, so it doesn’t matter.

Just like homelessness doesn’t matter now.

Or our war deaths abroad.

Or unemployment rates.

Obama is king and Peggy Joseph got some free stuff-that’s all that matters.

A few days after the tragic Sandy Hook school murders, a young Marine in fatigues stationed himself at the front entrance of the Nashville elementary school his two children attend. Another parent heard him admit to a reporter that he was unarmed. The other parent commented that, even though the young Marine standing guard was not armed, it made him “feel better” to know he was there.

It’s often been observed that “perception is more important than reality”. The observation is often correct. It is never MORE CORRECT than for those we’ve come to call “liberals”. I prefer “statist” but “liberal” has morphed from its classic meaning to the other end of the spectrum so I’ll stay with it.

Since these folks operate almost entirely on EMOTION and FEELING, REALITY seldom allows FACTS to intrude upon the delusional worldview they have constructed and the comfort that provides them. It is that illogical, irrational and delusional mindset that prompts many of them to continue to quest after a Utopian society. The thought that such a society can and will never be achieved in a fallen world populated with failed sinners never penetrates whatever remains of their cognitive consciousness. It’s a DANGEROUS WORLD and, as the liberals continue to “define deviancy down”, it becomes more dangerous daily.

There is another, far more sinister, level of the “liberal” call for gun control.

It was Mencken who offered that “The urge to save humanity is most often a false front for the URGE TO RULE.” He clearly had been a student of the liberal politicians of his day. Were he alive today and able to observe the likes of Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Obama and the rest, he’d almost certainly have used far stronger language to frame his sage observation.

To conclude, dozens of studies reveal the FACTS concerning gun control. Those FACTS are that where firearms are widely and READILY available to law-abiding citizens, CRIME GOES DOWN! The liberals who willfully ignore the FACTUAL EVIDENCE and continue to call for gun control (i.e. the DISARMING of DECENT CITIZENS, thereby denying them the ability to exercise their God-given right to self-defense) are those about whom Mencken wrote: Their goal is NOT about preserving life. It is about the hell-bent pursuit of the impossible to achieve Utopian world where all are equal but some (that’d be THEM) are MORE equal than others (that’d be US).

There are many PRO-RTKABA videos on You Tube that your often busy lives don’t allow you to find on your own. Search there for “Gun Control”, watch them – and, more importantly – SHARE THEM with the folks in your orbit.

We’re in a fight. And losing will ultimately cost us much more than our right to our guns.

Let’s let Der Fuhrer and his side-kick, Joe, declare guns banned in Chicago as a test case for their new gun legislation. We could see how it works in the most dangerous place in the country, before letting them take away the Second Amendment rights that were enumerated by the Founders.

How many of those guns were legal?

How many lives would be saved if blacks and the mentally ill were not allowed near them?

More than likely, the nearly all lily white MSBFD and CNN sees that they were all children “of color” and already had their parents in the DNC’s back pocket so that it wasn’t politically expedient; a non-story. 93% gives the democrat party a lot of wiggle room when it comes to “principles.” Besides, for every black child killed in Chicago, twice that many illegal aliens will be made “eligible’ to vote.
