    Dude, the weekend ended with 71 people being shot: a new record for Chicago.

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel held a news conference this morning and told the public: "We owe it to each other to do better and be better."

    The police chief also spoke at this press conference, and admitted that the police were overwhelmed, and have yet to make one single arrest in any of the shootings. Virtually all of these gun crimes were black on black, happening in black neighborhoods.

    Here is a video of the press conference:

    Who in their right mind would be out with their children at 2:30 in the morning in what is essentially a free fire zone?

    So they don’t want people bringing guns in.

    They want more laws.

    In other states.

    To fix their problems.

    Yet they only prosecute 4-6% of illegal gun arrests.

    WTF! You have all the laws you need to clean your own self up. Only it’s too hard politically to put locals in jail so move enforcement out to your neighbors so you don’t have to take responsibility

    With CPD's current clear rate, that means one person will be arrested and prosecuted... maybe

    Rahm should do the right thing and resign. He’s proven he can’t manage the city and his buddy no longer lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave...

    Chicago needs real leadership, that’s not afraid to step on toes, make the hard decisions and take the necessary actions...

    But I digress, this is what happens with nearly a century of democrat control...

    The Socialists Utopia...

    No thanks....

    How to " fix" crime in Chicago...?
    I don't know... I don't live there and I have no real idea or understanding of the many issues that are causing Chicago's problems.

    I do know that restricting me and any other gun owner that is not harming anyone with our guns ...will not solve the problems plaguing Chicago.
    Throwing down yet another law , ban or restriction will probably be just as effective as all the other laws , restrictions and bans that are already in place.

    For Chicago crime and corruption have gone hand in hand since the 1920's
    Long time culture that is not going to cure itself.

    It just about looks like Martial Law is needed in those neighborhoods.
    But that is a gigantic can of worms that no one is willing to even start opening.

    Obviously, they need stricter gun control laws, the bad guys apparently aren't taking the current ones seriously. o_O

    Even if they somehow managed to eradicate all guns in that area, they still won't stop behaving the way they do and stop attacking each other.
    They'll just start hacking at each other with machete's and IED's

    Emanuel is a bubblegumming pig worthy of contempt... he should be sharing a cell in Club Fed with (the FOURTH IL governor to do federal time) Rod Blagojevich.

    Roll over a bit and make room for Kitzhaber and Wheeler, you butt-monkeys... if there's any justice left in this country. Trump's made noises about commuting Blagojevich's sentence... SCOTUS has refused his appeals at least twice so far.

    Yea, it’s kinda like Southeastern New England... 90 degrees, 90% humidity, hope it cools off at night... Yup, remember those days, sleeping with a box fan in the bedroom window, just trying to stay cool...
