Gun Control? In Chicago?

I’m a little late on this one, but I’d really appreciate it if someone could explain how a Democratically controlled city like Chicago, Illinois, who has one of the most sweeping gun control laws in the nation can actually have 72 people shot over a weekend, as what happened last week. Anyone? Buehler? Buehler?

In case you missed this news story, there were 72 people shot in Chicago last weekend, and something like 11 or 12 people were killed. I hear one person has been arrested. He by the way, wasn’t accused of shooting all 72 people. My question is how in the world can that happen?

The city is run by Rahm Emanuel, who is as sturdy of a liberal Democrat as there ever was. The city has like total Democrat control. And the police chief and Emanuel have been trying to explain how in the world with all of the gun bans in their city, that something of this magnitude could happen. It’s certainly not something that you can blame Republicans on because I don’t think there are any Republicans in that town. And I’m sure there are none in leadership positions.

So, why is it that a city like Chicago has this huge problem with guns? I have my own ideas on the situation, but gee…I’d really like to hear from Rahm on this one. Oh wait. He did come out early in the week and say something about it. What did he say? He said there are too many guns on the street. There are too many people with criminal records on the street. What Chicago needs is better parenting. They need parents to take better control of their kids.

Sounds rather conservative to me…how about you?

Actually, Emanuel has nowhere to turn but to take that bent. He can’t blame the fact that his laws aren’t strict enough. They’re pretty much the most strict laws in the country. And he can’t blame Republicans because the Democrats have run that town since the days of Al Capone.

Here’s my point to all of this. The reason Chicago is having the problems it’s having is exactly because of the reasons Emanuel has mentioned. The breakdown of the family, people that don’t know the difference between right and wrong because they were never taught the difference between right and wrong. And lawlessness begets lawlessness. It’s a shining example that if all you want to do is ban guns (as the left is wont to do), then it will fail, just as it has in Chicago. If you want to solve this problem, you must do what Emanuel has said…it starts with the family teaching the kids what is right and what is wrong; what is acceptable behavior and what is not acceptable behavior.

That is the part where liberalism fails. It wants to give excuses for bad behavior. Either someone had a poor childhood, or wasn’t raised properly. It’s never their fault. Well, it IS their fault and they need to be held accountable.

Cities like Chicago that have been ruled by the left for generations are going to face this problem over and over and over. When you believe that you can do whatever you want and not have consequences, this is what you will get. There is no other explanation, and Rahm Emanuel is right. Of course, now Chicago wants him to step down as Mayor because he hasn’t solved the problem. And the problem is, it’s not his problem to solve. The parents of the people doing the shooting are the problem. And their parents. And maybe even their parents.

When will the left ever learn?

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. Well Cactus, this is your occasional post regarding guns in Chicago when you have nothing else to show your brilliance. As I have said previously, since you are not from Chicago, where I have spent most of my life, you know nothing and the bubbled headed bleach blondes on Fox, intelligence is located on their chests.

    You are correct that there is a serious gun problem in Chicago, but is for the most part located in two neighborhoods which are gang infested. These cowboys are fighting over the drug trade amongst other things and they think nothing of shooting up neighborhoods. The Cleaver family family values nonsense does not play here and probably never will. As for the guns, Republicans are responsible for this violence in a way as their are extremely lax gun laws in Indiana and this loosen laws were produced by the Indiana legislature and signed by the governor, that Uber Christian Mike Pence. Indiana knows what is going on but since it is gangs in Chicago killing each other they do not giving a flying crap. Of course this is the same governor who refused needle exchanges in southern Indiana during an HIV/opioid crisis there because I guess Jesus told him that this would encourage more drug use. But cooler secular heads prevailed in his administration probably saying that voters were being killed and Jesus Pence relented and drug deaths plummeted. Pence was very unpopular and his reelection was toasted until the Orange Rump rescued him.

    BTW, the solution to the gun problem is to take away everybody’s guns as there are no gun rights, it is in the Constitution if you know where to look. Gun rights was made up by the failing, Russian puppet NRA in the 1970’s.

    Come on Earl Ferguson, tell me you know where gun rights are located and I will school you on the Constitution.

    Have fun storming the castle.

    1. Oh Snarky…don’t believe for a minute that you can blame Chicago’s gun violence on the GOP! That town has been Democrat since before you were a gleam in your parents’ eyes. Wake up! It’s not just Chicago either. Name me a big city that’s been run by the left for decades that isn’t either riddled with debt or violence. That’s what the left thrives on.

  2. Cactus, you obtuse individual, you still ignore where the guns are coming from, Indiana and why, their lax gun laws. Who runs Indiana, who are the fanatics on half of the Second amendment? Republicans, but then they never take responsibility for anything that has their fingerprints on it. Listen to president Russian Puppet and his problems are Obama’s fault or the Democrats or both, the non existent Deep State or non existent Alt Right.

    Name a State that has not been screwed up by conservatives and their luny ideas, say Kansas, basically the whole South, Indiana, Wisconsin (where are the promised jobs Scotty?), Arizona, Ohio.

    Unrelated but germane to Republicans and their moronic tax cut, you see the amount in Treasury obligations auctioned off last week? One TRILLION dollars to cover the budget deficit, just like the Democrats predicted. Suck on that! Facts are not biased.

    1. Obtuse? And yet you’re blind to the FACT that Chicago has the most restrictive gun control law in the country. So, why isn’t it working? It’s not working because, liberals never learned the lesson from Prohibition. A state that hasn’t been screwed up by conservatives? Easy. Any of them. Arizona hasn’t been! It’s been people like Janet Napolitano and Rose Mofford that screwed up Arizona. It took the likes of Fife Symington and Jan Brewer to fix it. Liberals have screwed up everything they’ve touched.
      And why are you so concerned about budget deficits? You weren’t the least bit worried about debt when your boy was doubling the size of the national debt, so why now? You can’t answer these questions because you don’t have any answers…just meaningless rants.
