    With what? They have strict gun laws in Illinois that only the law-abiding follow.

    The Wild West vigilante enforcement you speak of.........they did it with guns. Tons of them.

    It doesn't just take guns. It takes a willful desire to clean up a neighborhood. Every one of these gang bangers is someone's son, brother, boyfriend. Their parents know who they are . . . their other brothers and sisters who who they are. They're living somewhere and, in most cases I'd bet, someone else is paying their rent.

    I say women alone could clean up a neighborhood. No guns. Give them no quarter. They'll stop or they'll leave. Until they are unwilling to live in these cesspools they call home and are committed enough to turn in their own families, rat on their friends, throw their asses out, nothing is going to change.

    IMO, nobody outside of their communities gives a rat's ass as long as they just keep killing their own.

    Oh, I agree with you.

    The biggest problem I see, outside of the obvious issue of an embarassing lack of responsible fathers, is that they do not promote and hold up people that should be seen as pillars of the community. Anyone within who speaks up and lives an exemplary life is shunned, silenced, and ridiculed.

    Not only do they kill their own, they sabotage anything positive around them.

    The right still could but they spend so much time tilting at windmills that it's hard for them to win moderates and swing voters.
    It would have had to go back to the days of Capone then.....the Moderates can't pull it off. Not even after Quinn passed a bill limiting the Illinois House members. He was responsible for taking it down to 2 House members for every congressional district. From 3 members. Which Quinn does lean left but he is close to being to the center. It was one move that many didn't have a problem with.

    Course Quinn was never part of the Chicago Outfit and their machine.

    Immediately the Cops stated it may be gang related.

    Still it is Chicago and with the Strictest gun laws in the country. I figured the Anti Gun Nuts would be all over this. Wheres Gabby?
    They have hundreds of murders a year in Chicago.

    Chicago Homicide Rate In 2012 Surpassed New York City, But FBI Warns That's Not The Whole Story

    If they want to maintain this record they better get to work. You can't have slow days with just 1-2 murders...

    Heya RM. Well don't forget Chicago Cops are involved.....so some things aren't exactly reported accurately.

    True. And missing persons (even if they are missing for LONG time) aren't counted there too. These are just reported murders.

    Rahm Emanuel must be proud. I wonder if Obama will have him over for Christmas or Hannukah celebrations at the WH to congratulate him on his bang up job.

    Yep, and some will be classified as Suicides.....Emanuel is the Small Potatoes......this Is Jesse Jackson turf and The Ex Black Panther Congressman Bobby Rush. Just to name two of the more prominent ones.

    Most Shooters In Chicago Don't Face Charges



    It’s getting easier to get away with shooting people in Chicago.

    Last year, gunmen who shot and wounded someone got away without criminal charges 94 percent of the time, according to a DNAinfo.com Chicago analysis of police data.

    That’s even worse than 2011, when 91.5 percent of shooters escaped charges, according to the data.

    LOL! Why do you think the murder rate is high in Chicago? It's because of the war on the GDs, who are all in prison and gang wars are breaking out to capture territory.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    "Guns don't kill. People kill."

    Of course, people with guns can shoot 13 other people in a matter of seconds. But, we'll just ignore that.

    Oh, maybe if everyone on the Basketball court had a gun, this could have been avoided...
