Rahm Emanuel Goes After 1st And 2nd Amendments
Investor's Business Daily ^ | January 30, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Guns: A 15-year-old girl who performed at the president's inauguration is gunned down by gangs less than a mile from Barack Obama's home. What does Chicago's mayor do? He blames banks who lend gun makers money.

Hadiya Pendleton, who just days before had performed with her high school band at President Obama's inauguration, was gunned down Tuesday afternoon in Chicago's Kenwood neighborhood, just blocks from the high school she attended.

The park where she was killed is a little less than a mile from President Obama's Kenwood home.

In addition to Hadiya, two men were killed and eight other people wounded Tuesday night in Chicago, arguably the most violent city in the country despite having the most restrictive gun laws.

Chicago by Sunday had reached 41 homicides, surpassing the January 2012 homicide toll.

With seven homicides, Saturday was the deadliest day of the young year as the Windy City exceeds the deadly toll at Newtown, Conn., without much media fanfare. The carnage included a 34-year-old man whose mother had already lost her three other children to shootings.

Confronted with a rising body count that exceeded 500 in 2012, Chicago Mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, not letting this crisis go to waste, has sent letters to two major financial institutions, TD Bank and Bank of America, which offer lines of credit to gun makers.

It’s always easier for the fool to blame the tool. It takes logic and an open mind to look at the person wielding the tool. Do they blame the car when a driver runs someone down, the knife when someone is stabbed? Of course not, because that doesn’t fit their agenda of control. Rahm will never blame the person pulling the trigger, at least not in Chicago, because those that are most responsible are in a protected class.

People who are always wrong, always blame others.

These are Obozo’s supporters. Thugs and gang members and deviants. But, conservatives are the target of Obozo’s and Emanuel’s wrath. I want someone to call Obozo and Emanuel out; to publicly decry the behavior of those who are supporters of Obozo and liberals. I’m absolutely sick of hearing these cretins blaming all that ails this country, which is created primarily by those who have no values or morals (liberals), on those of us who follow the Constitution and God’s Laws.

Rahm is a blithering idiot. I hope the banks don't justify his ignorance with a response.

Why wasn’t Dead Fish as bothered by the deaths of over 500 Chicago citizens who were murdered last year or the 40 others already murdered this year? Why try to exploit this girl’s death while ignoring the others?

>>Do they blame the car when a driver runs someone down,<<

They do when it is an EEVIL SUV. They don’t when it is a Prius.

The fascist wilding of America.

The political forces of fascism are now becoming cultural. The economic aspect of fascism will soon come into its full manifestation...only cronies of der fueher ( The One) will be allowed the profit which long has been the driving energy behind a free market system.

This little girl deserved to be protected. Instead she was given the legacy of fascism....not love and kindness , but jealousy and death.These are the scions of Emmanuel and Obama.Look on the faces of those who intend to destroy America.

To stop them all, they must be destroyed.But where are the warrior patriots? Who will stand up?

Yeah, Rahm, go after “guns”, not the perp who used the gun. Confronting him would probably make you pee your panties.

“Why wasn’t Dead Fish as bothered by the deaths of over 500 Chicago citizens who were murdered last year or the 40 others already murdered this year? Why try to exploit this girl’s death while ignoring the others?”

And the bigger question, how did all of the shooters manage to get a license to own a gun in Chicago? Did they pay someone off?

Litter of four dead, all shot.

Would have been cheaper to put them all in a giant burlap bag and thrown them in Lake Michigan.
