    WHY?

    Why does a 7 year old girl die of a GSW in a city with no guns?
    When will the people of Chicago lose their liberal gun-fearing grip on the rest of the state?
    When will a citizen in the state of Illinois be able to protect themselves against stupid thugs that go around shooting each other without a care in the world that they'll get caught, and their stray bullets harm innocents?

    "The White City" is knee deep in the blood of innocent victims... partly because the gangs and the thugs can get illegal guns and kill and the law abiding citizen has a harder time getting a gun than they do...

    Sigh.

    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    Chicago is what it is and I don't foresee it changing anytime soon. I see no reason for me to have to ever go there, so I will just read about it and shake my head for the victims of their own political choices.

    The problem is innocents are paying for the poor political choices of others.....which is being done on a National level now.

    How is it that a child can be born out of a nation with no balls?

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions. That's the truth of liberal thinking, which destroys under the guise of compassion.

    The problem is, they are just as convinced that it's the guns as we are that it's the criminal.

    They should try to figure out the old Ted Nugent quote

    They are looking at the statistics and trying to win votes, but they need to get down in the streets and walk around.
    I use to live in Uptown, Chicago. I remember coming home from the bars about 3am one night. I had to walk by a building that had at least 15 gang members leaning on it, no one else out in the street. I kept my head down and walked fast right by them on the other side of the street. All I heard was one guy say, "D$#% he MUST have a gun on him." I think that says it all.

    The ultra liberals confine themselves to Major Cities like New York, Chicago, LA, San Fran and impose their will on the rest of the state. People that stay deserve what they get for not voting properly or putting the pressure on their constituents. I say let them have their strongholds of liberal ideology. It's their funeral!

    Its the old "if you ban guns only bad guys will have guns" thing. As to when they will come to their senses and join the rest of the sane people in America, that would be the 12th of never.
