It is time we begin to start asking anti gun liberals how many people have to die by criminals with guns before they pull their head out of their ass? How much longer are they going to stick to the same old nonsense idea that gun-control laws stop criminals from committing crimes with guns? By their very nature criminals don’t abide by the law. That’s what makes them criminals. So why would anyone in their right mind think that a criminal will abide by a law that says you can’t use a gun committing a crime? That’s insanity, brought to you by political correctness, and it is now deadly.
We can’t keep allowing the same politicians and anti-gun organizers to give us the same BS year after year when homicide rates are skyrocketing. We are entering a time where we should ignore these people and just do the right thing. I don’t have an answer for what the right thing is at this point for Chicago, but I know it’s not Rahm Emanuel or the city’s gun control laws. Something needs to give, but if history and experience mean anything, anti-gun liberals are not going to listen to reason.
Meanwhile, the number of shootings in Chicago are increasing at an alarming rate. You would think after years and years of gun violence rising continually even though newer gun-control laws keep getting stacked one on top of another liberals would step back, do a little introspection, and admit, to at least to themselves, that gun-control laws are an abysmal failure. Maybe it’s something in the water, maybe it’s a mental illness, but I have never yet witnessed a liberal admitting that gun control laws do not work.
At this point I think the only answer is for the people of Chicago to throw out the bums who represent them and elect people who are serious about controlling the gun violence but who also understand that gun-control laws are not the answer. Gun-control laws only affect honest, law-abiding citizens. It is a known fact through study after study that in any living area in the country, whether a big urban city, the suburbs, or a rural setting those places with the most gun-control laws have the most gun violence and vice versa.

The number of shootings and murders January 1 through January 22, 2017, are higher than they were for the same time period in 2016.
According to the Chicago Tribune, “at least 228 people were shot in Chicago so far this year.” That is an increase of 16 victims over the number shot by this same time in 2016. And there have been “at least 42 homicides,” marking a “23.5 percent from the 34 homicides from the same period in 2016.”
Think about it this way–January 2016 was the bloodiest start for a year in at least 16 years, yet the carnage of the first three weeks of 2017 surpassed it. And this is bad omen, especially when you consider the fact that bloody January 2016 set the tone for the rest of last year, with the result that gun-controlled Chicago ended 2016 with nearly 4,400 shootings and almost 800 murders.
Weekends and holidays in gun-controlled Chicago were marred by shootings and murders throughout 2016. For example, 40 were shot and four killed by Sunday of Memorial weekend, 37 were shot and six killed over July 4 weekend, 52 were shot and 13 killed over Labor Day Weekend, and 62 were shot and eight killed over Thanksgiving weekend.
And now, in an eerily similar story line, the Tribune reports that 54 were shot and six killed over the weekend of January 20-22, 2017, in gun-controlled Chicago.
