Chicago is well known for its gun control and it should be a lesson to us all shouldn't it that people without guns are in more danger. Right? 57% is a lot more deaths! Do we want more cities like Chicago?
sort by best latest
It is a horrible place Yoleen, even children cannot walk 2 school without being in danger of being killed. It is just not right 4 I am sure if these people could get out they would! So a least someone owes them protection if they don't allow them.
To have guns for anyone would certainly be an improvement since now all the crooks know they are the only one who have them. Children being shot going to school and our gov't is doing nothing...it shames me.
"...instead the cops get into trouble for "racial crimes" against the black community..." This is backfiring on the blacks. Many of these "racial crimes" are committed against repeat offenders. Some cops are asking the KKK for assistance!
bejabbers, Yeah, blame the cops? The cops risk their lives every day while you sit at a computer spewing nonsense on hub pages and you have the nerve to blame the cops in Chicago? How about the mayor and the years of Democrat control.
DTMB, you always have something negative to say, so your output doesn't matter to me. I don't know about Chicago cops, but I know that LR cops don't always respond against gangs to protect the community.
You got that right Rachel and only a fool or a criminal would say differently I think! lol But just my thoughts on it!
Jackie, I agree with Rachel and you. My words have gotten twisted around by a certain person on this site. I'm not anti-gun, I learned to shoot at age 3. By 6 I was a very good shot. I've had to scare off intruders twice and not with bare hands.
Great to hear that MizB, I was not that young but by 10 I learned all I need to know to defend myself and except for a wild tom cat that killed my little kitten (on a large farm) I have never shot at a living thing & he got away!
So it is just the people of Chicago? They are more murderous but no one should look at it to protect themselves? Maybe you could explain it all to us?
Jackie, she never explains her wacko comments, just challenge her and she disappears because she can't ever back up anything she says with anything than emotion.
The innocent deserve better in America, no matter where they live. That is suppose to be what America is all about although many to seem set to change that. Maybe hope and change is truly on its way.
In general, not only in America " better" have to be earned before deserved. Entitlement is harming natural processes of moral strength and discipline self preservation. Fulfillment of "hope" is hard working to endure. All has to pull same direction
I a certainly hoping it will Michael.
It would be easy to assume that the violence is counter to the development of man. But the evolution toward peaceful priorities actually may not be the standard for some subsets. Perhaps a different branch of the Homo Sapiens tree.
Being a citizen of the state of "Hanging Judge Parker", I know the West was settled with violence. Science has found a "religion" gene programmed in, is it possible that humans may also have a "violence" gene? Would these genes exist in subsets?
An interesting notion that keeps popping up is "deaths of innocent people", kind of makes you wonder. 5 generations of this? What impact does that have in the gene pool. Sounds cold hearted but seems plausible.
Not to my knowledge. Some good people are stepping in to try to help protect the school children last I heard but this is maybe only in one or two areas, I am not really sure on that.
The only way to answer your question Jackie is to do away with all the gun laws in Chicago and see what happens - you know what, it can't make it any worse because it's way worse now than before they had gun laws there.
Yeah, DTMB, let's get our guns and run rampant in the streets! You just put me down for saying cops don't always do their duty, now you want to give them more problems to fight. You always have the answer, don't you.
MizB, he is only saying people have a right to defend themselves. If you HAD to live in Chicago (in these certain places) I imagine you might change your mind. For your loved ones sake if not your own.
Who is giving right / "authorization the criminals killing random innocent citizens? Don't you see that "We The People" need to take justice in their own hands ... and made ' right things right.'
Michael and Jackie, read my posted answer and you will see that I believe people have the right to own guns and defend themselves. I was replying to his smart ass answer to me. No, Jackie, he wasn't saying that. he was being his usual hateful self.
MizBejabbers, Hi. I did, and mostly I like what you say. In order to maintain status quo, please accept my apology for inconvenience. Sigh
The fact is and will always remain Stella that the guys with the guns usually have no permit, they can pickup a gun anywhere, it is only the everyday citizen being held back and coming under scrutiny for wanting to protect themselves.
