For years, voices have cried in the urban wilderness: We need to talk about gun control.
Yet the guns blazed on.
It took a small-town slaughter for gun control to become a political priority. Now, decades' worth of big-city arguments against easy access to guns are finally being heard, because an unstable young man invaded an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., with a military-style assault rifle and 30-bullet magazines. Twenty young children and six adults were slain....

Urban = “dog-whistle” term
And Comrade Obama’s information ministry drones on.
They are already, but two of them, Chicago and DC, have the highest shooting rates of almost any city in the country. Don't know how having new laws will change that.
All the talk about gang violence and shootings being used as a lever to take guns away from honest citizens. I love the argument that if no one had guns there would be no gun violence, as if gang members and criminals would no longer have access to guns. How has that worked out in England and Mexico? And before someone starts blaming the U.S. gun stores for the automatic A-K47’s and M16’s you need to remember they are not legal to own for 99 percent of the population and are unavailable at gun stores.
To which I say: go ahead, push the issue. And then when those of us who live in the Red Zones say, “enough”, we simply stop doing commerce with the “Urbans”.
Which includes food, fuel, power, etc. . . . Methinks they’ll come around. . .
Gun Control has been a big failure in Black areas. All those cities with Gun Control and large Black populations seem to have a lot of Blacks shot and killed.
The real racism in Gun Control is that the pushers of the failed policy want to disarm white folks....so they cannot defend themselves from minority criminals
It is a wonder why Obama did not to to the South Side to spend Christmas and the New Years Eve, walking the talk, block by block, ...
especially the blocks within 1,000 ft of a school

You know you are in trouble when, nationalizing socialist advocates of a government police state are demanding that the people be disarmed.
Yep, 0bama should be running his own “Model Cities” Program to demonstrate how organizing the ‘hoods to chuck their weapons would work so well.
Had there only been bullets in the magazines the children wouldn't have died from gunshot wounds you freaking moron!
Wasn’t the so-called easy access his mother’s fault? I don’t know that any gun merchant sold him a weapon.
OK, which one of you guys is going to go into these urban nieghborhoods and confiscate the gangbangers guns? Andy are you listening? Much easier to TRY AND confiscate and disarm law abiding citizens in rural communities chalk it up on your election calender and make a run for the WH IN 2016. Doochberg and son of sfachime are political whores who have no real good intentions that are not personal ones, all aboard!
