Gun Control: Chicago's new police superintendent blames Alaska's ex-governor for inner-city gun violence and crime, and says gun-rights advocates are racist. Disarming victims doesn't prevent crime, sir.
Speaking to the choir, literally, about gun control, Garry McCarthy, former police chief of Newark, N.J., told an audience at St. Sabina Church in the Windy City about leaving a homicide scene in Newark, returning home and flipping on the TV to find an episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska."
"She was caribou hunting and talking about the right to bear arms," McCarthy said. "Why wasn't she at the crime scene with me?"
We know. We don't see the connection between hunting and gang violence either, but gun-control advocates do.
Sarah Palin was not at that crime scene because she had nothing to do with the crime. As a defender of the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms, she is like the vast majority of law-abiding gun-owning Americans who never fire or even point their gun in anger, unless someone's trying to break into their house.

These gun grabbing Marxists will invoke her name and blame her for everything, which is one reason why all their pathetic attempts to cure their unconscionable problems always fail.
They don’t deal in truth.
McCarthy is the highest paid city employee with an annual salary of $260,004.
Just another big city politician who blames anyone but the criminal.
How stupid. I doubt many of the Chicago thugs hear a word from Sarah Palin. Those folks are Obama peeps, and they don’t give a damn what he thinks either.
There is a reason why places like Chicago, Detroit and Philly have such huge amounts of gun crimes and places like Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, rural Tennessee, Georgia, Texas, et al don’t...
But if I say it I’ll be branded a racist.
See, this is what I don't like about Palin - she doesn't bother to show up at crime scenes in Chicago.
Sounds like St. Sabina’s tax-exempt status needs to be yanked.
I was actually going to call these Marxist morons dumber then a bucket of rocks but then realized that I would owe rocks a HUGE apology..I wonder what would happen if one of those Marxist buffoons were being robbed at gunpoint, what would they take out to defend themselves..a spoon LOL
They act as if crime in Chicago started with Sarah Palin..please, its Chicago, finding dead bodies in the streets is the norm
HOW many times do I have to say it, Palin supports the right the keep and arm BEARS!
(Get your G'RRRR on!)
“Why wasn’t she at the crime scene with me?”
McCarthy, Had she (or the victim) been there armed, there would not have been a crime scene you d@#%wad.
Lol. Some Chicago Lib/Dem has got their hand so far up McCarthy’s rectum he thinks their Rolex is his internal clock.
Attacking Sarah Palin because she is a 2A supporter. Why don’t you just come out and tell the truth McCarthy, you don’t trust your constituents with firearms and alot of them give you good reason to do so.
But you support punishing the rest of law abiding citizens who are savvy enough to know the police cannot protect them personally and they need to do it themselves.
But he just keeps doing what is politically expedient, giving BS hooyah speeches in churches for political points...
Why weren’t the police there to thwart the crime to begin with? Oh, you can only respond after the crimes occur? That’s why citizens need to be armed ... jerkwad.
Hell, I’ll say it, I don’t care if anyone calls me a racist. The blacks are turning feral in the large cities, it is happening in Chicago, in Joliet IL, in Philadelphia, in Newark, in Los Angeles, and coming soon to anytown USA. They are forming large groups of roving predator gangs and taking whatever they want, and God help anyone who gets in their way.
The only tie I can see between hunting and gang violence is that the thugs specifically prey on- and target- weaker people and hunt them down. If we were armed in Illinois, we’d have a fighting chance. Conceal-Carry: When Seconds Count and Help is Minutes Away. 9MM beats 9-1-1 every time.
Because, It's not her job , you money grubbin hack! It's YOURS!
A tip off to a mind numbed robot: The Race Card is flying like flak from a fighter jet.
Oh what the heck. I’m willing to overlook Palin’s affinity for those scary guns for the opportunity to have a president with a record of fighting government corruption.
This guy is digging his own grave. He won’t last more than a year here I am betting.
Why weren't you up there saving the caribou, jackass??
The point? The point is that violent people kill other people, and they do it with whatever happens to be handy. Further, one of the things that fuels the type of hatred that leads people to harm others is class envy. For the record, class envy can be within or between racial groups.
By perpetuating class envy, liberals are fueling violence much, much, much more than any gun rights advocate ever could.
She could wade in the blood of the punk laying dead and it would make no difference. These killers put the KKK to shame.

Can this guy be more contradictory? How do laws facilitate illegal firearms? The intent of making something illegal is to prevent it’s sale and possession, not the opposite. That’s the very definition of illegal.
That doesn’t change because the laws don’t work in the real world. There is no guarantee that any law will prevent anything, especially if criminals refuse to obey it. In this case it only prevents law abiding citizens from owning guns to protect themselves.
So where is McCarthy when a criminal with no respect for the law shoots a citizen who can’t own a firearm legally? Oh yeah, that’s right: when seconds count, cops are only minutes away.
Bush & Palin, ain’t nothin’ that ain’t their fault. Just amazing, simply amazing how far these idiots will go. Keep talking idiots!
And with Zero’s blessing...cops act stupidly dontja know?
It has been done by other ethnic groups in the past. Police would not even patrol certain areas of NYC when the Irish gangs were in control. Chicago was in near anarchy in the 1880s at time and citizens had to hire supplemental police forces or arm to patrol their neighborhoods. Life in Moscow during the 1700s practically stopped at nightfall as the streets became too dangerous to go about in.
Race has little to do with it over time. Today that race just happens to be black. When one knows and understands a big city life can be great when one does not it can be rough. Fortunately, I know this one like the back of my hand.
Gun control doesn't work.
They just haven’t run into the right fella or group of fellas yet....
The advent of the internet and alternative news sources has allowed people to become informed and forewarned, and by doing so, forearmed.
We have been having problems here in St. Louis with a little “game” called Knockout Kings, it may be called other things across the nation, but the premise is the same. Sucker punch, mostly whites, and see who can knock them out. It is usually done with a group. Last month, a elderly Korean guy was murdered by a kid doing this and his wife beat as well.
The courts may recognize that a man can go fisticuffs with a man roughly his age and size, more or less. But they don’t expect you to fight five. Mr. (Insert name, caliber, and nomenclature) may be the difference between you being the next victim of Knockout Kings and the guy saying “Officer, I had to, I just knew they were going to kill me, I was afraid for my life and my families life.”
This is why I encourage those who shoot, to learn how to shoot from the ground and also standing with the weapon tucked at waistlevel with your support hand out to fend off an assailant to create the time and distance needed to deal with the threat. Remember, contact shots are devastating because much of the gases are injected into the wound.
The only ones that have illegal firearms are criminals. McCarthy is to ignorant to see that
"She was driving her car and talking about the right to drive," McCarthy said. "Why wasn't she at the accident scene with me?"
What an idiot.... Make up your own version and post it for our amusement.
This guy is saying that black people can't be trusted with guns, which seems sort of racist.
Actually, this murder was in Newark. Speaking of Newark, McCarthy’s police force failed to notice the body of an innocent bystander at a murder scene for 12 hours.
Betcha Sarah would have noticed the body.
As does Media Matters
Um...because she was in Alaska, not Chicago, you stupid get?
They really must think we are stupid
Give Da Chief credit. A cop who welcomes the presence of ordinary citizens at crime scenes "to watch the guardians".
How refreshing is that?
Gun control itself is racist. It was instituted to prevent freed black slaves from arming themselves against the KKK.
The shooting was in New Jersey. Chicago has strict gun control, therefore no gun crime.
Home of the infamous Father Flakey.
Weren’t there illegal guns in Chicago before Palin was a major player? Good lord how do they remember to put one foot in front of the other when they walk?
Chicago’s new police superintendent trying to pass the buck to compensate for his inability to do the job. He needs to resign and allow a real cop...
I think the nitwit McCarthy was trying to say (very ineptly) that Palin should have been at the crime scene to see what guns can do. So according to this genius’s “logic”, the mere fact that someone owns a gun makes them an accessory to a gun-related crime committed thousands of miles away. Brilliant thinking. (smirk)
How did someone as stupid as McCarthy get the position he holds? If I ruled the world, someone as stupid as to ask a question like that would be working in one of Chicago’s parks, picking up dogturds! That would be more befitting his apparent IQ.
Well somebody in that administration certainly does, dunno about the rank and file coppers. If I were to tell a Chicago officer about the gun issues we had here in Missouri, I would say that the wild west shootouts that were forecast did not occur except in the normal circles.
CCW was helpful to law abiding citizens but it did nothing to reduce the violent crime rate in St. Louis. It did raise the amount of car break-ins, since many venues were allowed to post “No CCW here” signs and even after more than five years of CCW, the thugs are still after people’s roscoes in their cars.
62 cars broken into in the Metro just on Friday night.
Hey, Chief - how about a hunting season for two legged social predators in your city?
Think of it as a modern day bounty - or institute a bounty of $25,000 for every crook killed in during said criminals attempt to commit a violent crime.
