    Well you keep voting people into office that take away your guns. These elected officials take away your rights to defend yourself, and then you wonder why this happens? You need to take your state back from the politicians and the criminals.

    I'm sure most of these victims had guns of their own. Clearly they haven't banned them enough.

    Body count has GOT to take a toll on tourism... wouldn't ya think? Would you want to spend a warm summer weekend in that city doing the tourist thing? Maybe yes from one or two points of view, but when reality sets in (or what one reads online) those one or two points do not have enough draw for moi. YMMV

    I read Second City Cop blog weekly just to see the goings on in the windy city. Wildings, shootings, fewer cops, warm weather, politics... almost unreal. Surreal at times. (and the comments! love em)

    9 dead, 46 wounded in weekend shootings. Looks like the city with the some of the most strict gun laws in the country just isn't strict enough.:rofl:

    Tourism? Chicago? That just don't sound right.

    To be fair, the vast majority of these shootings are on the Southside and Westside where the gangbangers are enjoying summer temperatures. Absent the occasional flash mob attack, the downtown area is relatively safe. But, the statistics as it relates to gang area's is pretty incredible. Statistically you're a lot safer in Kandahar, than you are on the Southside of Chicago.

    Every year Chicago proper is the ultimate vier for murder capital of the united States.

    Chicago is the criminal's playground and "free fire zone" due to the draconian gun prohibitions still on the books to this day. The blood of the victims is on the hands of the elitists that ran and run Chi-town.

    I saw a news clip of the Superintendent and of course the first words out of his mouth was "proliferation of firearms"....BS

    How about the lack of hiring police officers? How about the inability of the law-abiding to defend themselves against these animals. How about the culture of absentee parents that let their children roam wild? How about the culture of "no snitching" that prevents killers from being caught? How about the mentality of "if you want something, take it"?

    I think the stats need to be amended to only include murders of productive members of society. Nobody cares about gangbanger on gangbanger shootings.

    Can you image the mayhem that we would have in Chicago if law abiding people could carry guns? There would be shoot outs over parking places. Not to mention if you accidentally bumped into these crazy gun toters they will kill you.

    Criminals would take all of the guns away from the law abiding citizens and use the gun against them. Before you knew it all of the criminals would have guns.
