Good thing they shipped illegals to the safe haven of Chicago to escape the violence of central America.

I think the NRA should provide free instructions on the use of pistols in Chitcago. The kill ratio is way too low for so many shootings. A higher ratio would free up their trauma and critical care resources for more deserving people.

Drugs.

Ooops, I forgot: drugs aren't the problem. BAD boys are.

Solution: legalize everything, THAT will SOLVE all the problems.
Hmmmm, all we have to do is ask the Swiss about THAT. :o)

No doubt they will all be housed somewhere in Rahm’s neighborhood to make sure they are all safe.

Indy is have a similar problem and the Left is doing it’s usal screaming for more cops.

Last weekend, 7 were shot in a party part of town with 20 cops on duty in the area that were there seconds after the shots.

90% of all shooting suspects have prior felonies and 40% of them have prior firearms felonies.

Cops are doing their best to arrest them after the fact, only to see them back on the streets in 5 years or less.

If Mr Rodgers lived in Chicago.... he would come through the door and lock the 18 locks and start taking off his ballistic vest while singing. The fish tank would have a hole in it. You can hear people fighting and banging things upstairs.... then a shot rang out and he falls to the floor.

“You don’t want to be my neighbor” he would then say.

SO true. Maybe other "garden" spots could be Watts, Harlem, Oakland-San Leandro Road, Tenderloin (San Francisco), Detroit Partnership, Florida Market in our nation's capital and East St. Louis.

They are ALL such delightful neighborhoods.

The REAL problem is FATHERLESS boys.
FATHERS are supposed to teach their sons how to deal with adult male authority.
BLACK fathers are supposed to teach their sons how to deal with adult male authority AND adult male WHITE authority,

Mothers can't do it. Ole "Murphy Brown" thought they could but that was a mere figment of some Hollywood writer's warped mind.

One could take "roll" at any local PRISON to see the truth of this.

Central America probably is, statistically, a safer place to be than Chicago.

When are the “death trains” going to be organized for the children of Chicago to flee to safer localities?

This CAN’T be true.

Chicago is a Gun Control Utopia, a veritable paradise - PARADISE, I say - of safe, happy, healthy, liberal Utopian living... a chicken in every pot... pot in every chicken ... Model Cosby families living happily, working side-by-side with their neighbors in interracial happiness, harmony, and complete bliss...

Yeah... I know... it sounds stupid to ME too...

Chicago has an extremely high murder rate. Something over 15 per 100,000 population.
Places like Los Angeles and New York City have more murders per year but a lower murder rate.

Actually the murder rate in Detroit is down 20% this year. Seems that encouraging armed citizens to take care of themselves works. It was down 30% but a high week makes a big difference.

Stats for the last week of June.

I agree with the statistics because too many children have been raised without God in their lives. However, many young boys have grown up without fathers and done very well...due to CHRISTIAN or Organized mothers who aren’t the norm. So nothing is a slam dunk.... even the statistics on crime.

In fact, the juvenile study that is most accurate is that in filling out the questionnaires it seems they entered the field of crime because they had no real relationship closeness with any family member they would not want to hurt, if they were imprisoned.

Many young teens wouldn’t do anything to hurt that Mother, Grandmother or Grandfather they are close to....so fathers aren’t the only hope they have. Even siblings can have an emotional hold on preventing juveniles from being on the wrong side of the law.

I taught CJ in a community college for years, and statistics do not tell the whole story....

Like the 18th Amendment really worked in Chicago...

My Grandfather would drive his truck to Detroit from the North Side and pick up 5 gallon tins of alky, on contract to Dion O'Banion. He would buy a few extra for his own bar, the one he ran for my great-grandmother. Cut 50% with water, colored with caramelized sugar, a dab of iodine for bourbon, and kerosene for scotch. Turpentine was for gin or vodka, not sure which. This is all family lore. (My dad remembered running the bottle capper.)

The War on Drugs is such a rousing success, after all. I still think it just a way to funnel federal price supports to the gangs, in exchange for votes.

For your consideration: Who uses drugs, and if they die, would it it such a terrible loss?

Meanwhile, in small towns across the nation with a much higher gun ownership ratio, no one has been shot in a decade.

==================================

You MIGHT feel differently if your young daughter were the drug user.
Or, if drug dealers showed up in YOUR neighborhood.
Or, if your son got involved with the "wrong" female who misused him.

Would YOU so easily dismiss the young ones?

The question isn't that we make war on bad stuff. It's that AT LEAST we TRY to.

SO TRUE.

My own dear sweet mother was against guns until I reminded her that her folks had a loaded rifle hanging up on a rack in their LIVING room in Phoenix, Arizona, when there were only 10,000 people living there.
She said: "Oh yes, that's true."

Also then-Mayor Dianne Feinstein carried a gun because her sick husband was in the hospital and she was "scared" to be out at night without her gun. HOWEVER she made San Francisco gun-free.

Lol. Hypocrisy is SO fun to expose.

“A higher ratio would free up their trauma and critical care resources for more deserving people.”

“I think you’ve got something there!”

I think it’s the (rather good) medical care available in Chicago. The doctors in the county hospital probably have more experience with gunshot victims than most doctors who served in Iraq.

Wow - I’ll bet the people involved are going to see their insurance rates go up quite a bit </sarc>

I can absolutely guarantee that the weapons per capita of my little central Texas town is 8 or 10 times what Chicago is....

and the only way we'd ever have that many shootings is if their scumbags came down here.

It's not the guns, it's the hands holding them.

“Indy is have a similar problem and the Left is doing it’s usal screaming for more cops.”

Same in Newark NJ, but nobody’s buying it because they won’t let the cops do their jobs anyway.

While many FReepers rightly criticize the permanent welfare class in this country, it is important to understand that the sacrifice of your welfare bastards (or your own) may be required for your life of leisure. I don’t believe the majority of gibsmedats love their children at all, and simply breed them for cash. I’m no saint, but there is nothing I wouldn’t do to keep my wife and children from these environments.
