The weekend’s first fatal shooting took place around 1:45 p.m. Friday in the 1900 block of West Howard Street in the city’s Rogers Park neighborhood when an 18-year-old man was found with gunshot wounds to his torso and back, police said.

You know they will.

Its going to take a while for the number of armed citizens to reach a thresh-hold of effectiveness. The tipping point in Detroit appears to have been a police chief who made it clear that he has the citizens back when they defend themselves. The murder rate in Detroit is down somewhere between 25% and 30% to date so far.

Sinaloa gang members had an agreement with the DEA tombring drugs into Chicago. Educated people in Latin America understand that major trafficking doesn’t happen without government complicity.

http://www.businessinsider.in/CONFIRMED-The-DEA-Struck-A-Deal-With-Mexicos-Most-Notorious-Drug-Cartel/articleshow/28755253.cms

Every conflict taking place around the world has roots in the drug trade. The cartels aren’t the liitle criminal that go to jail. They are private bankers, hedge fund managers, and world leaders.

The Ukraine is to EU Narco Trade, what Mexico is to the US. Syria, Afghanistan, Lybia, Thailand, and Venezuela are key Narco territotries.

Obama’s strange foreign policy? Taliban, Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood are essentially heroin cartels the same way FARC specializes in cocaine. They are all supported by governments in one form or another.

We are a Narco Nation.

It’ll take even longer than usual because Chicago’s requirements and costs to obtain a CCW is so much above and beyond those of other states.
This extended timeframe will be used and twisted by the antigun bums to spin the narrative against us.
“See? Illinois has had concealed carry for three years now, and gun crimes haven’t fallen. That proves that it’s not working!!!”

"30 Shot, 4 Fatally"

Rahm needs to set up some target practice ranges.

Apparently the NRA, the source of all gun violence in the history of the planet, has been surprisingly successful in its organizing and membership efforts in Chicago.

If only the NRA could be stopped. If do, hundreds of choirboys could be saved every year from a senseless death at the hands of self-actuating, semi-automatic .9mm calibre assault Glock machine guns which are sold over the counter with no Rx and mandated anonymity. If only.

But the media and the left doesn’t care. They have NO intention of taking illegal guns from violent criminals, but are doing everything they can to take legal guns from non-violent citizens.

Imaginary Press Conference -

Reporter: “Mr. President, any comment on the disturbing events in Chicago over the last few weeks?”

Obama: “Well like the rest of America, I was shocked and saddened by what I saw on TV, the sheer senselessnesss of it .... first the Bulls get knocked out in the opening round then the Blackhawks are out .... Chicago is suffering, baby!”

“Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a golf game to get to.”

4 dead out of 30 shot, they need to spend more time on the range.
