Gun Control? Obama's Chicago New U.S. Murder Capital
Posted 9/19/2013 at 07:04 PM ET
Gun Crime: FBI statistics show Chicago, with one-third the population, passing New York City in the number of murders in 2012. Is it time for a national conversation about gang control vs. gun control?
President Obama doesn't often mention his hometown when he talks about gun control. Then he'd have to explain, in arguably the most gun-restricted big city in America in the last state to allow concealed carry of firearms, why Chicago is now officially the murder capital of the United States.

No wonder Daley wants nothing to do with Illinois politics any more!

Chicago, where we like blood and politicians in jail. Seriously, what did you expect from a city that elects Jesse Jackson Jr? He was in a mental institution and not running a campaign. Yet, his name was followed by a dash and big stupid "D" (instead of "R").
Chicago, along with other cities like New Orleans, Detroit, Gary, East St. Louis, NYC and more, have real problems. Gun violence is merely a symptom of a disease gone viral. Poverty, politics and political correctness has allowed conditions in inner cities to fester until gangrene has set in. Amputation is the only cure and the three P's will prevent that from happening. It will continue to rot until the whole city dies. Sorry for the gruesome analogy but it seemed to fit.
Michigan laws, which Detroit abides by, has no magazine cap restrictions and you can own as many guns as you like. Our CPL's are shall issue. Yet Detroit tops that list almost annually.
Guns or no guns, the "three P's" you mentioned are the real issue.
Someone send me an email (which I haven't fact-checked) that says the US is listed 3rd in murders per 100,000 people in the world. If Detroit, Chicago, Washington DC and New Orleans were removed we woud be 4th from the bottom. So much for strict gun contol laws and years of perpetual Democratic leadership
What we tolerate today our children will embrace tomorrow
Roadkill, delete that email. Detroit and NOLA don't have strict gun control laws and the US isn't even close to 3rd.

Maybe Chicago’s top cop has the wrong target
Almost 20 years after then-President Bill Clinton pushed the idea of “midnight basketball” courts as strategy to curb inner city violence, last night’s shooting of 13 people at a Chicago park in what appears to be a gang-related incident, suggests that it’s not working out.

There you go Gun control at it's best.
And they blame Wisconsin for all their problems, sounds like a place Obama would have lived.
I would expect nothing less from a libertard run City.
