Shooting victims in Chicago this past week . . . 67
Poor Black Americans, if we would only elect a Black President! What? Huh?
A REAL OPPOSITION PARTY would put an end to this madness. BARACK OBAMA & The Democratic Party have & always will be enablers of this murder & mayhem. Enough!
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
President Donald J. Trump, Inaugural Address, Jan 20, 2017
Let’s support President Trump if and when he tries to confront this. We want Black Americans to vote for us? Then fix this problem first, and let’s not be PC about it. Throw the thugs and gang bangers in jail. We need more cops not less! More cops to punish the gangs and some compassion for the law abiding folks in these communities that are terrorized every day, that’s what we need. NO EXCUSES.
The map below shows where people were shot in Chicago, broken down by community area. Darker shades of blue indicate greater numbers of victims in those community areas.
Chicago Shootings Reached 4,368 in 2016 – 132 in the very last week . . . Someone Shot Every 85 Minutes. Crushing 2015’s Totals! Record madness, carnage, & mayhem! Record Shooting Sprees! Record Butchery! They got a “Cop Problem” in Chicago? LOL!
2016 4,368 !!!
2016 . . . final adjusted total 4,368.
2015 . . . final adjusted total 2,988.
Not only are the people heavily regulated in Chicago, but guns are also heavily regulated. Any long gun with a grip protruding from the stock or a firearm with a telescoping stock is prohibited and classified as an “assault weapon.”
Magazines are limited to a 12-round capacity.
Even a spring-powered pellet gun with a muzzle velocity of 700 feet-per-second is classified as a “firearm,” although it does not use gun powder, the component that puts the “fire” in “firearm.”
A stun-gun — a non-lethal device with no projectile — is considered a deadly weapon and cannot be carried for self-defense.
Chicago, for all intents and purposes, is a “gun-free zone.”
But all the state and city regulations associated with firearms in Chicago have failed to produce a safe city, and these are the policies that current Mayor Emanuel, former President Obama, and losing Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton have been promoting for the rest of the country.
While saying that “criminals go out-of-state to places where it is easier to obtain guns” is often used to push gun control, it illustrates that criminals ignore gun laws in every state and that onerous access to Second Amendment rights on law abiding citizens doesn’t stop crime.
Clinton’s campaign platform included call for federal legislation mandating background checks on all private firearms transfers and sales. Clinton also wanted to repeal the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.” That law protects firearm manufacturers from lawsuits for negligent use of firearms.
President Obama, through his spokesman Josh Earnest, had announced, “The president has frequently pushed his team to consider a range of executive actions that could more effectively keep guns out of the hands of criminals and others who shouldn’t have access to them. That’s something that is ongoing here.”
President Obama did nothing. Nothing!! NOTHING!!
Per the president’s policy, Chicago has taken every action “that could more effectively keep guns out of the hands of criminals and others who shouldn’t have access to them.”
Yet the shootings continue to rise.
