It seems every weekend, Chicago has between 10-24 shootings with 1-3 being fatal. Yet, Illinois continues to believe in gun control,,,,,,,,,for honest citizens.

It's working fine, it's just that we aren't yet doing enough on our part by spending enough money on it or relinquishing enough of our personal freedom.
We're getting there however.

Not unless someone put up a lot of hip money.
Chicago shootings are up. Maybe a leading indicator that we’re coming out of the recession?

Just a warm up!
Wait until tonight.
The trend line will be up all summer.

Looks like Obamanation didn’t do a very good job of “Community Organizing”.
The odd thing is that Detroit gets the bad reputation despite being pretty quiet compared to Chicago.
Detroit thugs are learning that granny just might be packin.

“It seems every weekend, Chicago has between 10-24 shootings with 1-3 being fatal.”
At that rate, the trash in Chicago will never thin its ranks.
Send guns and ammo to Chicago’s trash. Do it for Chicago’s future, for America’s future.
And, it will generate more jobs in the funeral industry.
What’s not to like about this?

And no one seems to care. Yet we’re all supposed to be outraged, horrified, and grieving over Trayvon.

For every thug that shoots some other thug, there always seem to be 2 or 3 innocent bystanders that get shot or killed as well.
Where’s the outrage?
(oh, that’s right - blame it on the guns)
