The Chicago Bloodbath Continues

Chicago Violence_Cham.jpgThe Real Revo – by R.D. Walker

Nine people were killed and dozens wounded in Chicago shootings over the weekend. Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the nation. The Governor, of course, insists his sick horse needs more turpentine.

Gov. Pat Quinn said Sunday that such continued violence underscores why he dramatically altered a gun bill that will end Illinois’ last-in-the nation ban on carrying concealed firearms — a prohibition that’s been declared unconstitutional by a federal appeals court. 

“That ought to be an alarm bell to all of us that we need strong laws that protect the public safety, especially when it comes to guns,” the Chicago Democrat told reporters after speaking at a church on the city’s West Side. “It’s time to end the violence.”

Quinn, who has advocated for a statewide assault weapons ban, spent much of the holiday weekend discussing the violence.

None of the shootings involved the use of a so called “assault weapon”.

Meanwhile, my hometown – where almost everyone has guns in the house – celebrated its 51,234th consecutive day without a gun related homicide.

    Here we go again. Trying to ban something or throw something in that has nothing to do with the issue at hand. Never let a good crisis go to waste. Quinn must be a die-hard, Rahm supporter. I don’t know which city is worse these days, Chicago or NYC. Both want to control the damn state, if not the world.

    How about that 17 yr. old that was shot and killed by the chicago police. They always want to forget about who the cops kill don`t they. So much for the tightest gun control law in the us eh.

    72 people were shot over the Independence Day weekend in Chicago.
    Chicago had to close North Beach due to mob violence.
    Drugs, gangs, and mob violence. Gangs are a very real problem and they all have guns but not for defense.

    Reminds me of L.A. back in the late 80’s, early 90’s.

    Bad place to be in those days. Glad I survived them.

    Some I knew didn’t.
