Obama Touts Gun Control, Not Gang Control, In Hometown
Investor's Business Daily ^ | February 22, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 02/22/2013 3:28:26 PM PST by raptor22

Gun Control: On his way to a play date with the world's most famous golfer, President Obama stops in America's most violent city to push universal background checks that Chicago's violent street gangs will totally ignore.

Janay McFarlane, 18, was killed late Friday just hours after her younger sister joined a group of teens onstage for President Obama's speech in Chicago on gun violence.

McFarlane was shot to death hours after her little sister, Destini, 14, sat just feet away as Obama spoke in the aftermath of the similar murder of Hadiya Pendleton.

The 15-year-old Pendleton was gunned down in Chicago's Kenwood neighborhood, a few blocks from the high school she attended and a few days after she performed with her high school band at Obama's inauguration. The park where she was killed is less than a mile from the president's Kenwood home.

Pendleton's death was one of more than 40 homicides in Chicago last month, a total that made it the deadliest January in the city in more than a decade, after more than 500 murders in 2012.

This carnage in the nation's most gun-controlled city in America has been blamed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others on the flow of guns into Chicago from elsewhere — notably suburban gun shops.

They do not explain why the areas outside Chicago don't have anywhere near Chicago's murder rate. The Windy City's murder rate of 15.65 per 100,000 people looks nothing like America's overall 4.2, the Midwest's 4.5 or Illinois' 5.6 rates.

Obama’s no communist. Stalin wouldn’t have let gangs not under his control to run loose. Obama probably thinks gangs are cool, most of the culture does. The teens I work with want nothing more than to somehow attain thug credibility. We’re screwed.

I thought Tiger Woods met with the president in Florida, not Jack Nicklaus.

Why???? because the gangs may be his new national army stronger and just as well equiped as the military. If you arm every prisoner in the country and give him or her a free ticket to freedom if thye would pick up and fight you bet they will have an army

After all, gangs in Obama's hometown in Kenya use machettes.

“Just One More Law” is Obammy’s battle cry.

Just one more.

One is too many, a million is not enough.

I DEMAND

that Baraq and Rhambo deputize the Million Moms for Gun Control and send them into Chicago this summer to clean up all the illegal guns.

Do it “for the children”

Here is a new thread featuring a new essay and 5-minute YouTube video titled “Democide: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom.” The video has had 12,000 views in the first two days.

I helped to produce the video. It’s an effort to lift the debate from Newtown “small ball” to the big leagues of state democide, where these efforts at “reasonable and commonsense” gun control laws always lead to death by the million in the end.

nobama is now a 100% of the time campaigner, and spends zero percent of the time governing. The Presidency of the US has been turned into a total joke by this asshole.

No! What you would have is a mob, at best.

An army is disciplined, and works together as a unit.

These thugs would mostly be at each other's throats as much as anything else.

At the first opposition to their "army", the "battle" would resemble what happened to the Midianites when Gideon and his 300 attacked their camp. (Judges 7)

Obama’s solution to those inner city problems is to remove those rights provided by the constitution to have and bear arms from all US citizens before any search an seizure begins in those troublesome areas which by the way will never happen.

The egalatarian reason is of course the government cannot allow anyone to own a gun .By removing guns from those who aquired them legally they can now seize guns from those who aquired them illegaly. Don’t hold your breath before the latter happens. But be assured the Demo-Coms won’t rest till they get your legally obtained firearm.

Undisciplined rabble I think is the term. And you are right - there's no honor among thieves. A disciplined and properly positioned small force would scatter them like quail every time. After getting put through a meat grinder a time or two they would lose stomach for such nonsense rather quickly, much like Midianites.

Pish-tosh. A bunch of crooks with guns is Chicago, where they kill each other. An army has direction and discipline. Have you ever seen "Zulu"?

Obama’s foremost talent is community organizer. The Chicago gangs are the very community he organized. The murder rate is a function of his organizational efforts and abilities.

The murders are Obama’s fault

QED

The dims want to disarm the law abiding and leave the lawless alone. This creates chaos. Chaos demands restoration of order. Big brother steps in to restore order. Their kind of order.

This is what they are working towards.
