Skip to comments.Chicago Police Chief Calls for Nationwide Assault Weapon and High-Capacity Magazine Ban
Posted on 09/21/2013 8:14:25 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
On Thursday, 13 people were shot and injured in a park in Chicago. The shootings were carried out by an assault style rifle with a high-capacity magazine, both of which are already banned in the city of Chicago. Nevertheless, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry F. McCarthy has called for a nationwide ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
Illegal guns drive violence. Military-type weapons, like the one we believe to have been used in this shooting, belong on a battlefield, not on a street or in a corner or in a park.
Chicago was named the murder capital of the United States by the FBI on Thursday, and has had more homicides this month than several states yearly total for 2011.
P2 calls for Rahm and FUB0 to head down to the South Side for the next 12 weekends to talk sense into the 0bama voters.
Good luck with that a**hole.
Why do you suppose Rahm hired him?
Good luck dipstick.
Then only criminals would have them. Including making me a criminal for having one.
“Illegal guns drive violence”
So let’s make more guns illegal and we’ll have more violence. Brilliant!
He can call all he wants. He isn’t getting it.
Interesting how he’s spending time blaming guns rather than focusing on his own incompetence in reducing the number of murders in ChIraq.
How about a nationwide gang-banger ban?
“Military-type weapons, like the one we believe to have been used in this shooting, belong on a battlefield”
More death in Chigago than Iraq last year.
Chicago is a battlefield.
Yea, that’ll work. You moron you already ban hand guns........and it hasn’t stopped anything.
The rest of the nation is doing pretty well outside of Detroit, Chicago, and Newark.
Maybe Chicago just has crappy police...or crappy politicians...or crappy laws that subsidize the poor for remaining living inside mass crime zones.
Eliminate Section 8 housing, EBT cards, and single mother benefits and watch how fast people move out of those crime zones.
So you want to ban legal guns owned by non criminals. Smart thinking.
Military-type weapons, like the one we believe to have been used in this shooting, belong on a battlefield, not on a street or in a corner or in a park.
Well dumb ass, Chicago is a battlefield. Thanks to you and the Democrats you serve.
Hey, chief...take care of the murdering criminals in your crummy city, you loser.
You’re doing a hell of a job there in Gun free Chicago Chief.Not.
Duh, don’t you, Chief Garry, ALREADY have such a ban in Chicago?
BTW, won’t the drug gangs have to pay more for the black-market (no pun intended) AR-15s?
Guess that means that the drug gangs will have to sell more drugs to the white-collar yuppies.
Oh I’m bad, I’m nationwide zz top
Yeah, Chi-town’s doing a bangup job.
And yet his uniformed thugs are issued them, for use on the street,or in a corner or in a park.
knowing full well all those guns hanging out in a "corner" are up to something bad...... MORON
Kiss my hairy white butt, Chief.
“Never let a crisis go to waste”
It first came from Rahmbo, right?
NO IT FIRST CAME FROM —> VLADIMIR LENIN <—
F Chicago and all political product that comes from there.
They created it, they own it, and honestly they don’t give a chit.
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry F. McCarthy: “We’re having a hell of a time trying to enforce the various gun bans here in Chicago. Quite frankly, all the wounding and killing makes the police look foolish and stupid.
“So, to distract attention away from our incompetence, I’m gonna make a lot of noise about a nationwide ban on scary military-like rifles and high-capacity magazines.”
Chicongo was named the murder capital of the United States.
No thanks to it’s tutu wearing mayor.
Whoa. Whoa there.
Chicago IS a battlefield.
In the places that use common sense to combat crime, they use a tactic that the left calls for all the time, they “Level the Playing Field”. Normal people are encouraged to arm themselves with the same hardware as the gang bangers. I attended a neighborhood watch meeting here last year where the deputy speaking recommenced that we all "arm ourselves". Now THAT is common sense crime control
I guess Chicago never had a problem with gun violence until little Eugene Stoner was born. /s
Somebody needs to tell this @$$#0£ that Chicago IS a freaking battlefield.
Because clearly strict gun control had worked wonders in makin Chicago the saftest city in the US? Right?
Illegal guns create violence.
So let’s pass a law that will punish guns for their crimes.
First offense: the gun gets its bullets taken away.
Second offense: the gun gets plugged with a rubber cork.
Third offense: the gun gets its barrel chopped off.
Murder: Capital punishment. The gun is punished by hanging in a public square. Then it will be beheaded and melted down.
The innocent thugs who were unwillingly wielded by the guns will not be charged. It’s not their fault.
By the way, what’s a victim?
folk off buddy
you can’t even run your own city
don’t try to tell anyone else what to do
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry F. McCarthy’s suggestion is so full of crap, he could use it to fertilize the entire Sahara desert.
And we’d all be better off if he went there to spend the rest of his life doing just that.
How about he controls his OWN area, and lets us worry about ours.
Good luck getting those guns out of the hands of gang bangers..oh yeah I Forgot, they can keep their guns, its the law abiding citizens who cant have them..I see how it works
What are the Chicago police going to do when the useful idiots entitlements are no longer there? Will all the major cities that are run by ComDems melt down? My bet is that they will.
That will be a place to avoid in such an event.
Garry F. McCarthy can KMA.
Chicago is about 2200 miles from my house and I wouldn’t go to Chicago even if someone paid for all expenses, yet somehow my firearms are a danger to this moron??
Seems that Garry F. McCarthy is incompetent at his present job.... perhaps he should resign. I used to fire people that blamed others for their own failures.
Just another noisy *sshole making the noises *ssholes make.
You outlawed guns and certain magazines.
Murder, torture, assault and battery are also illegal.
I note that more violent crime is committed with hands feet knives bats and various lethal means than all gu. Crimes combined.
Yet, you haven’t seen fit to outlaw those means of violence.
Nor have you outlawed hacksaw blades. They are surely used to cut down the barrels of shotguns.
People are the ones committing these crimes, not the inanimate objects they employ .
You are cruel to deny your citizens a lawful and constitutional means of evening the odds by which they protect themselves.
You are sentencing countless innocents to death and injury by removing their God given right to end violence committed against them.
Is it better for your conscience that these innocence live in constant fear and intimidation because they have not the means to defend themselves?
You are heartless bastards seeking power over a citizenry you were hired to serve.
You have no intention of doing your job and strangling the crime and murder stats to something understandable.
You are effing insane.
Ghengis Kahn wannabe.
You, are not an American.
1). Membership in gangs becomes a felony
2). Murders while in gangs automatic death penalty
3). Drug distribution automatic death penalty
If all liberal hypocrites will give up their armed body guards, I’ll give up my weapon. And I know that will never happen.
Incompetent Fife. Clean up your house before coming into mine acting holy.
Couldn't agree more. Allow the law abiding populace to legally own and carry. Problem solved.
Yeah! Then we can have all of America be like Chicago. What a libtard!!
And we should do this because it has worked so well in Chicago???
This McCarthy moron is the same ahole who once said Americans should only be allowed to own muskets because that was the type of firearm owned by the colonists when the Constitution was written.
I wouldn’t trust him to properly clean the restrooms at police headquarters in Chicago.
I call for this wannabe tyrant to be fired for assailing my civil rights as an American citizen.
I don’t care what you want, chief. God gave me what he wants, and you ain’t taking it.
The problem isn't the tool, it's the fools with it.
We don't have your problems here.
