cities are the heartland of Americas real gun culture. It isnt the bitter gun-and-bible clingers in McCain and Romney territory who are racking up a more horrifying annual kill rate than Al Qaeda; its Obamas own voting base.
Chicago matches the murder rate for Japan and is higher than the murder rates for Spain, Poland and pre-war Syria. If Chicago gets any worse, it will find itself passing the homicide rate for the entire country of Canada.
Chicagos murder rate of 15.65 per 100,000 people looks nothing like the American 4.2 rate, the Midwestern 4.5 or the Illinois 5.6 rates, but it does look like the murder rates in failed countries like Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe. To achieve Chicagos murder rate, African countries usually have to experience a bloody genocidal civil war or decades of tyranny.
But Chicago isnt even all that unique. Or the worst case scenario. That would be New Orleans which at an incredible 72.8 murder rate is ten times higher than the national average. If New Orleans were a country, it would have the 2nd highest murder rate in the world, beating out El Salvador.
Louisiana went red for Romney 58 to 40, but Orleans Parish went blue for Obama 80 to 17.
St. Louis has a murder rate just a little lower than Belize. Baltimore has a worse murder rate than South Africa and Detroit has a worse murder rate than Colombia. Obama won both St. Louis and Baltimore by comfortable margins. He won Detroits Wayne County 73 to 26.
Homicide rates like these show that something is broken, but it isnt broken among the Romney voters rushing to stock up on assault rifles every time Obama begins threatening their right to buy them; its broken among Obamas base.

And the worst gang of all is the Democratic party.
Amen to that brother!
Amen to that brother!
Of course one would be quickly and loudly labeled as a right wing racist to point out the obvious here.
My suggestion would be to fence these places in, give them all of the fully auto weapons and ammo they could possibly want and let the situation take care of itself.
In the mean time leave the rest of us the hell alone.
The whole point. The democRAT's policies have created this mess exactly to destroy this country as founded.

Read the comments by the morons who think that if we outlaw guns these gangs will be disarmed. They seem to think these gangbangers are getting their guns at gun shows and private sales and not on the black market.
Aren’t most of the other gangs wholly owned subsidiaries of that one?
Psalm 84 Verse 10:
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. - King David
Interesting DOJ statistical analysis (rare in that it breaks out Hispanic crime instead of lumping Hispanic and white crime together):
Forty-one percent of violent felons were black, non- Hispanic , 30% were Hispanic, and 26% were white, non-Hispanic. Blacks (46%) comprised a higher percentage of murderers than Hispanics (27%) or whites (23%).If you subtract out the black and Hispanic homicides, the white homicide rate is about the same as Europe.
Why are there gangs? The Democrats created 40 years of welfare and a dependent society where the gub’ment check just arrives each month with nothing expected in return. As these people get their meager check they still can’t have what others have so the only way to get it is unlawfully. The dependent society has no incentive to better one’s life.
All examples of Amish concentration.
Most gang members are minorities.
Most gang members are young minorities.
Most gang members live in the inner cities.
Most gang members live in minority majority cities.
Oops, another inconvenient truth therefore the author of the article must be racist.
“All examples of Amish concentration.”
You haven’t watched the new show “Amish Mafia” yet? They are bad to the bone. Best one was a shop in theirnlittl town was selling Amish goods made in China instead of local product goods. The mafia wasn’t too happy with that.
Still too early... Sorry for the misspellings.
No, America has a failure of will problem. One platoon of marines could fix the gang problem if we had the will to let them.
America doesn’t have a gang problem, it has a prohibition problem.
We need to classify all gangs as terrorist organizations and their members a terrorists, as that is what they are. Round ‘em up and ship them off to gitmo with the rest of their murderous counterparts. Tired of being PC....
If CW2 comes,the extermination of gangs will be a priority.
well the feds only want to disarm the law abiding white people it seems sometimes
Thanks for that link. Another interesting stat from Bureau of Justice Statistics, November 2011:
From 1980 to 2008 about 1% of the population consisted of young black males, yet the percentage of young black male homicide offenders was 17% in 1985, 35% in 1993 and 27% in 2008.
If you factor out just 4 neighborhoods in Chicago the murder rate drops to that of Switzerland.
Yes, the Amish are given a pass because they are quaint, but they are in a cult, with all the problems of a cult, including inbreeding.
When one gang-banger murders another, police call this a victimless crime.
Our prisons are filled with close to 30% illegal aliens and illegal gang members.
The largest percentage of violent crimes are committed by minority groups.
Why not call a spade a spade. Why continue to hide this?
Our government has failed us on purpose. Republicans and Democrats have allowed our Southern border to remain wide open.
War on drugs? War on human trafficking? Really? What a farce.
Anyone ever watch the program on T.V. called “Gangland”?
This is a huge slap in the face to all Americans. Just that show alone provides enough evidence to prompt an immediate deployment of troops to our border with Mexico.
The Amish Mafia is only in Hollywood. I live in Amish country and respect them. I really dont like the negroes being referred to as Amish. I know there isnt nothing bad meant, but ..............
[[America Doesnt Have a Gun Problem, It Has a Gang Problem]]
America Doesnt Have a Gun Problem, It Has a Gang Problem that is protected by the left while making criminals out of law abiding citizens who own guns to protect themselves from said gang members
If you’re a criminal gang banger, you’re perfectly legal i nthe eyes of the left- but if you’re an innocent law abiding victim of criminal gang bangers- you’re guilty in the eyes of the left weho have pulled out ALL the stops in order to protect criminals and gangbangers- the left is even goign so far as to try to disarm the law abidign citizens so that criminal gang bangers will be able to rob murder rape steal or do whatever the hell they feel like doing withotu the worry of beign shot i nthe process
I’m telling ya- the radical left and their bleedign heart lawyers ARE traitors to this nation
[[You havent watched the new show Amish Mafia yet? They are bad to the bone]]
The show is also a crock of crap- who the hell i ntheir right mind reveals ON CAMERA their illegal activities so that law enforcement can record and see them breakign the law? The makers of these shows must htink America is stupid or soemthing- it’s just liek hte ‘reality tv show Moonshiners- apparently camera crews have no trouble findign ALL the hiding spots, but law enforecement evidently is too stupid to fidn htem? and the folsk are even suppsoedly showign hteir ilelgal activity on film so that when law enforecement does catch up they can’t deny hteir crimes?
Police man in driver’s seat “Hey fred- did you just see ten camera crew members duck donwn beside gthe road over there?”
Fred “Nope Boss didn’t see nothin- Do you think we’re ever gonna catch those wascaley wittle moonshiners?”
Driver “Doesn’t look good Fred- we just have no idea where they’re makign their shine- they’re good at avoiding hte law ya know”
Fred “Wonder what the TV station A&E is doin down here?- I been seeig their trucks everywhere back i nthe woods-”
Expect nothing like this to see the light of day in the DNC Propaganda Organs, er, I mean, mainstream media. Journalists aren't much into facts - especially non-PC ones.
Besides, the object of the upcoming gun control is the disarmament of the least criminally threatening groups. Of course, those groups are the very ones which the same politicians fear and loathe because in the end those are the ones that might take them down. The other groups (criminals, criminal gangs, gimme minorities, etc.) are their allies and will be affected little by the draconian gun laws.
When you impose a dictatorship, you only want your friends armed so they can terrorize your opposition and help cement your power.
Read John Ringo's "The Last Centurion", especially the section about the re-conquest of Detroit.
“Chicago matches the murder rate for Japan and is higher than the murder rates for Spain, Poland and pre-war Syria. If Chicago gets any worse, it will find itself passing the homicide rate for the entire country of Canada.”
I am very surprised that neither Greenfield nor his editor know the difference between “rate” and totals.
Japan has a murder RATE of 0.4 per 100,000 people, that is one murder for every 250,000 people.
Japan had 506 murders during the last year for which data is available.
Chicago’s RATE is 15.65 per 100,000, nearly 40 times higher than Japan’s.
Bump for reference
Yes, I’m sure all of your statements will be viewed as profiling.
Have you no shame?

I don’t either :- )
