    That gun control is working out really well for them, isn't it?

    The antis will gleefully add this number to their gun violence stats.

    Meanwhile, things are quiet as usual in my well-armed community.

    Chicago has been a mess for decades. Even living in a little hole in the wall town in the south, I was familiar with the notoriety of Cabrini-Green. They finally demolished that thing, but the gang members that lived there (who aren't already dead or in prison) are living in the city somewhere. All demolishing the project did was spread them out so more innocent people can get caught in the crossfire.

    Shootings at the rate of one per hour in Chi town. Would not live there on a bet.

    At the rate they are killing off citizens, you probably wouldn't live there long.

    Yep. What they never point out is most of these numbers originate from their "gun-free" utopias...

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    It amazes me that "anti's" don't see this as a problem... They want to make every major metropolitan area just like Chicago. Can some please explain this to me! or at least try to.

    Its their utopia. You are a helpless person in the greater society. In that society you are a pawn, with little value. The police are the only ones allowed to carry a firearm. They can not and will not protect you, the individual, they are only there to protect society and the masters of the utopia.

    Hope that helps...

    Chicago is the gun-free utopia our Community Organizer-and-Chief envisions, and would impose upon us all.
    The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.
