My cmnt: This death and mayhem goes on in Chicago and other large democrat-run (sometimes for generations) cities perpetually and endlessly with democrats continuing to do absolutely nothing about it. Why don’t they scream and cry for more ‘gun control’ laws? Because they damn well know that they are powerless to disarm the young, black men who do most of this shooting – strictly because of their politics. Stop and Frisk in New York City took so many illegal (and they are ALWAYS illegal) guns out of the hands of known and suspected criminals that New York became the safest big city in the world under Mayor Rudy Giuliani 1994-2001 as the murder rate fell significantly.
My cmnt: Disarming young, black criminals is something the democrats simply will never do! Instead when some deranged democrat voter, usually white or Muslim, goes all postal shooting up Republican Congressmen playing softball, killing fellow soldiers on our military bases, murdering people worshipping in our churches, killing our innocents in the public schools, etc.; they demand we confiscate all the guns of law-abiding citizens who have never so much as been ticketed for jay walking.
