If you have looked at any of the news sources this past week, they detail the Wild West conditions in Chicago. Not sure what I’m talking about? Here… let me clue you in. On the 24th, of August we get the following – “Nineteen people were shot across the South and West sides from Thursday evening through early Friday morning — 13 of them wounded over a 30-minute period, authorities say”. Lest you think this is an isolated event, how about this from last night, 8/27/2012 – “At least 10 people were wounded in seven shootings across Chicago overnight, police said.” On just about any week end From Friday evening until Sunday night, you will usually have between 30 and 40 people shot. All of this happens in a city with draconian gun restrictions, notice the Gang Bangers must of not gotten the memo on the gun restrictions, criminals never do. And get this, you actually have more people being shot in Chicago than you have in Afghanistan which is a combat zone... Wait a minute!!! What do you think Chicago is? It is a Combat zone!!!
I have a few questions, where the hell is the mayor on this? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? The reason I asking for these guys is most of those being shot are black men and women. Why aren’t they involved in this especially Jesse Jackson – he lives there. These guys had no problem going to Florida on the Trayvon Martin case but when you have mass murder in one of our largest cities and black men and women are dying , we don’t hear a peep... I take it back… we did hear from Rahm Emanuel. He was too busy commenting on Chick-Fil-A to be bothered with coming up with a substantive solution. So let me ask you again, where is Rahm, Jesse and Al?
Well…. let me tell you why you don’t hear any thing substantive from any of these clowns. Chicago has a crime problem. It has been reported that you have 100,000 people in Chicago are involved in Gangs. What has the response been to this? Disband the Gang task force. Only in a liberal utopia, is disbanding a gang task force seen as a step in the right direction when dealing with an out of control Gang Banger crime problem. We don’t hear or see Al or Jesse because there are no race issues as they aren’t concerned with black on black crime… Where are the voices of the people that have to live in Chicago? … … You can’t tell me this is tolerable, there should be mass protest in front of city hall until the ballet dancer, (Rahm) does something about this... A good start is a sweeping Concealed Carry Law so law abiding people can defend themselves. The reason the Gang bangers are operating with impunity is because the risk of getting shot or caught is slim and none, meanwhile they cow the populace and the government does what it does best.. absolutely nothing.
In John Lott’s Book “More Guns Less Crime” he details how in every state that has enacted some form of Concealed Carry, the crime rate goes down. Why do you think that is? I will tell you why. Most criminal are cowards. They are not banking on getting injured or shot. People of Chicago, when will you rise up and say enough…. How bad does this have to get? Do you actually think this is normal? Do you think you can sit back and believe this will get better on its own??? It won’t, problems never go away – they just get bigger.... Do you actually think the police can protect you? They can’t – this is out of their control. Don’t believe me, how many were shot? How many died? Here’s your answer, TOO MANY!!!! This is not a Black or White issue, this is a Criminal issue.
People of Chicago….Its Time to Stand Up and SAY….. Enough!!! Demand the right to protect yourself – no one else will.
