    How do you figure? The conservative rhetoric has been that stricter gun control has lead to higher murder rates in the city of Chicago. This simply is not true.

    From what I heard Chicago is starting to resemble Detroit.

    I assume you're being sarcastic. I am also going to assume that you've never actually been to Chicago. It is one of the most beautiful Cities in America, and it's economy is one of the strongest.

    Here's an idea.. If you're going to move to a major city, stay away from the Ghettos..

    Chicago is a great place to live and start a business.

    Chicago Homicides Down by 17% in 2013 - WSJ.com

    What was all of that Republican rhetoric about failed gun control laws?

    You didn't think that due to fewer murders and less shootings that gives any accurate picture now do you?



    Violence reverberates through the city, even with decline in shootings, homicides
    The staccato of gunfire an unrelenting reality for neighborhoods stretching from the West to Far South sides

    It was just one scene in a city where gunfire has long been too common. In the first six months of this year, more than 1,000 people were shot in Chicago, according to a Tribune analysis.

    The trends have been positive this year, with the number of shootings and homicides running below last year's tragic spike, but similar to other recent years. The regular weekly statistics released by Chicago police include the number of shooting incidents, not the number of victims. Even if an incident involves multiple victims, it is counted as a single shooting. But the Tribune analysis focused on the number of victims.

    A quick glance at a map of these shootings shows that this violence takes an inordinate toll on a swath of the city spanning West Pullman on the Far South Side to Austin on the western edge. Night after night, guns pop and scenes unfold.....snip~

    I lived in the inner city of Chicago till I was 12 years old. All I saw were gangsters, drug dealers, and destroyed businesses.

    Chicago, IL (Friday, February 1, 2013) — Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. and

    Rainbow PUSH Coalition call for immediate Federal Intervention and Homeland Security in Chicago as January homicide totals exceeded 45.



    Reverend Jesse Jackson reaffirms that gun control reform is critical and the ban on assault weapons paramount.

    Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. states “With each passing shot, the call for gun reform

    becomes more critical because of the stinging pain of past tragedies; we must

    work diligently to break this cycle of violence to prevent future tragedies”......snip~

    WOW so you show a video of one of Chicago's most dangerous Neighborhoods, and try to pass that off as representing all of Chicago? That seems real fair. The City of Chicago is Beautiful, and has some of the nicest and safest suburbs in the US.

    Two can play that game:

    Fixed it for you.

    Gun control is for those who are willfully on the side of criminals and tyrants. Those who are on the side of law-abiding citizens are opposed to gun control.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
