    Request for DHS troops in Chicago

    Saw on Fox news our hero Jesse.Jackson & the families of the latest round of 157 shootings & homicides are asking Obama to deploy DHS troops to Chicago. Would this action not require a declaration of martial law ? Wonder how Rahm would like this ?

    I say they round up all the Chicago residents, shake 'em down, search all the homes and confiscate all weapons--That's the Chicago way!

    DHS I believe is technically just another Federal LE Agency so the PD/State Government would simply request them to supplement their own department. Obviously this report is false though with Chicago having some of if not the strictest gun laws in the country this cannot be happening.

    Wouldn't it easier to simply relax gun laws, allow all non-criminals to arm themselves and see how that goes.

    I was thinking the same thing. Let the law abiding folks carry to protect themselves.

    No. No. No. You can't disarm the public by allowing them more access to guns! Remember, it's not a crime problem, or a drug problem, or a gang problem; it's a GUN problem.

    Cordon off the entire gang area (all neighborhoods), pass out MORE guns and ammo and let 'em have a go at it.
    Make sure that there is a line of Coroner's vans in place, wait a minute, they are already in line there... so no problem with transportation.

    Too bad Al Capone isnt still alive. The gang violence in Chicago would be non-existent.

    Still want to know why DHS has all this ammo they purchased stockpiled............and whose the intended target ?

    IMO.....Chicago is a prime example of the degredation of our society due to the onset of PC and Libral ethics.....gangs, drugs and Corrupt Politicians like in our other inner cities.....wondering just how far that drug money reaches ?

    Marion Barry.....Washington DC
    Sharpe James....Newark, NJ
    Joseph P. Ganim....Bridgeport Conn.
    John M. Lake........Carney's Pt. NJ
    Leona Beldini........Jersey City, NJ
    Tony Mack...........Trenton, NJ

    Our elected officials........just to name a few......time to reorganize Chicago....legally.

    Good point. Since it isn't a gang or drug problem they should initiate a crack for guns exchange program. Bring us your Glock we'll give you a rock!

    They're making their own bed, let them sleep in their own cesspool.

    I'd bet ole Al Capone wished he could legislate away his opposition?

    Think the ones legislating all this anti-2nd Amendment B.S. don't have armed security or a carry permit?

    Commute the death sentences of all heinous murderers, abolish the death penalty, continue state tax increases for the welfare state and make the working poor join the ranks, then send every governor to prison for corruption and what do you have? ILLINOIS

    After 38 years under socialistic rule of the elite Chicago political machine down state, I was fortunate to escape with the cloths on my back. I empathise with the good citizens of my former state and encourage them to escape before they lock it down and prevent relocation because they are going broke.

    Really? Surely you are aware that Mr. Capone and his crew were not model citizens. In 1933 Chicago had one of the top three murder rates in the country. Nothing has changed.
