FALSE!

Chicago has very strict gun control, so this could not have happened.

Rahm-n-noodle on a train. All these shooting could have been prevented if only Rahmee boy had been able to register all the handguns in IL sooner. But I forgot, nobody can have a pistol in Chi-town. Right? Flunky fer sure.

I encourage this violence to take place where the rich liberals live in Chicago.

Can we have a list of the racial/ethnic background of the shooters and victims. Ages of shooters and victims would be enlightening. Geographic location would be interesting too. The press will only whine about "guns". History would predict the shooters are 18-24, black or hispanic.

The best Rahm Emanuel autograph Posted by David Hardy · 7 February 2012 04:19 PM Is one found at the bottom of a City of Chicago check to Second Amendment Foundation, for attorney's fees and costs, in the amount of $399,950. Looks like Alan Gottlieb holding it. OK, so it's probably an automatic signature, but the thought of how Rahm must have reacted to the news that it had be sent is amusing. Essentially, Chicago involuntarily becomes the funder of the next round of pro right to arms challenges.

Hard to believe that you would expose yourself to being called the “R” word by making such an inference. LOL! But you are more than likely right on target. Oops! Did I say that out loud?

After clicking the link and reading more, the age spread was broader. Youngest age 10. Oldest age 61. Didn't miss the ethnicity question. Tytus Harris (22), Rogelio Servantes, Clifton Harlson (27), Jamal Harris (19), Greg Clinsey (61), Edgar Delgado (17), Asif Memon.

Read "More guns, less crime" for the stats. Making a guess from long term statistical information is a pretty safe bet. The politicians won't deal with the problem because they are afraid of the "R" word. Instead, they punish everyone for the acts of a well defined minority.

I’d be willing to bet the majority of these killings were in Eric Holder’s peoples neighborhoods involving Eric Holder’s people.
And NOT in the Polish or Italian neighborhoods.
Nor the rich enclaves.

Lucky for us that the way things are going we’ll soon be the well defined minority then we too can get some of them obamabucks. If the muzzies “let” us live that is. I’ve read quite a bit of Lott’s stats over the years. He was another one whose results surprised even him.

Chicago gun murders in one weekend: 7
Murders in my small county in WV, for the years of 2001-2007: 1

Weird. The majority here are armed. LITERALLY, almost everyone. You’re looked at with raised eyebrows if you say you don’t own a gun.

You’d think we couldn’t walk outside without getting shot. Weird how that works.

Every week casualty lists like this come out of Chicago. You would think the units involved would have battle fatigue by now. At the very least, where do the replacement troops come from?

Don't hold your breath. As soon as California shifted to whites being less than 50%, the "minorities" became apoplectic. They realized all the laws written to exclude whites by using the phrase "minority" would no longer suffice. It was amusing to watch attempts to change from "minority" to "people of color". A morning news show had a caller wondering if the phrase "colored people" was going to be the consequence of this new reshuffling of terminology to exclude whites. I wasn't really that amused. The anti-white purpose of these laws has been evident for 40 years. Having to walk on egg shells to avoid offending "minorities" has always rubbed me the wrong way. I expect people to perform, not make excuses for lack of performance based on melanin content. In my line of work, most of my co-workers have a BA or better. It's almost never an issue.

Hasn’t been a murder here in Eagle, Alaska in almost 30 years, and that guy was drowned in the Yukon by his drunk buddies. Funny thing is half the community has guns with them at all times (due to the bear) and we even have an Indian Village; and those guys are a good but hard livin bunch. No locked doors, no keys outta anything, no law enforcement or organized local government, no real crime or problems. What’s the deal with those inner city ethnics?

The Chicago authorities have completely missed a central issue: That is that Chicago has been specifically targeted by violent Norwegian Street Gangs.

These bloodythirsty Vikings are not only well-armed terrorists, they are also masters of disguise; dialect; mis-direction. So successful are they in this cop-fooling ruse de guerre that their vile depredations are commonly blamed on other ethnic groups that are completely innocent! Innocent, I say!

Take a bite out of crime, Windy City Citizens. Report any missing lutefisk shipments IMMEDIATELY to your local police and Sheriff. Carefully track burglaries of costume shops. Check your local Public Library (sorry LIE-berry) for overdue language and dialect tapes. Contact The Avon Ladies to make sure none of them have been mugged and robbed. Ditto Wig shoppes. Also look for strange lights at night at Lutheran Church Halls. (That is where these fiends congregate to get stoked on lutefisk, akvavit, and Viking lore stuff. It is where they plan their heists!

If you spot one of these wild Norwegians in their trademark bulky sweaters, DO NOT APPROACH. Call Rahm Emanuel.

Tytus Harris (22), Rogelio Servantes, Clifton Harlson (27), Jamal Harris (19), Greg Clinsey (61), Edgar Delgado (17), Asif Memon.

So, those crafty Norvegian Gangss have you fooled, too! Tytus=Trygve. Rogelio=Ragnar. Edgar=Einar. Asif=Arne. Greg=Gunnar. Clifton=Canute.

The cops are cracking down in the wrong neighborhoods. In the run-up to St. Olaf's Day, expect a huge upsurge in Norvegian violence. You have been warned.

I am fairly sure that these Viking ax-men may have lost all respect for Chicago when they learned that Rahm Emanuel was a ballet dancer.

For 25 years I’ve lived in a gun saturated neighborhood in far west Knox County, TN and am proudly one of those responsible for the saturation. Not one murder or other violent crime by me or any of mynneighbors in all that time. Funny thing, not one inner city denizen here either.

Well, how ‘bout dropping lots of guns and ammo all over the place, wait until the trash shoot each other and then, when one is left standing, shoot the survivor.

Think of then as home grown Sand Savages, which their behavior resembles.

Besides, as America’s greatest arms salesman, Obama will approve of my suggestion. And, those Vikes are not a ‘protected class’ according to Saint Holder.

IQ I expect.

When half (47%) the people in Detroit And New Orleans cannot read or write, I don't expect it's much different in certain sections of Chicago either.
