They seem to have the resolve to take OUR firearms away... but no real commitment to stem the illegal flow of theirs.

I sit here, in this sprawling suburb. Know what's missing? The

constant screaming of sirens, like in NJ, and Illi-noise.

It's QUIET here...

It's getting much worse. In broad daylight you can't shop Michigan Ave. or jog in Lincoln Park without being mugged by groups in their late teens. I live outside the city and stay here.
The city gov., police, and justice system are inept, and generally criminals themselves.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

You have to wonder why Chicago PD won't publish how many of these shooters have valid FOIDs and how many guns were purchased legally. Probably because none of them do. But that would just show the failure of the strickest laws already in place.

There really isn't a problem. Just a blip on the radar. This too shall pass.

That, and this is how they are fighting crime now:

The first sentence in the article says:

OK. That might work but for one problem. These people probably cannot freaking read!!!!! I mean seriously? They expect this to have any effect whatsoever? Damned fools will probably get shot for knocking on the door in the first place! Wow. The stupid hurts.


I am willing to bet that any one of us could easily obtain an illegal gun within a day. All it takes is cash or maybe some prescription drugs. But I am not willing to put that to the test. Any of the people who travel in those groups could probably score a stolen gun within an hour. The reason for this is that the laws on the books are not enforced to the fullest extent.

Gun control is only a distraction. The corrupt Urban governments need victims to support their election. As long as the Left can identify groups of victims they can hold power. The country never had Gay Rights, Abortion Rights Victims Rights Drug Freedom, Etc. 50 years ago. The American Left has used Tax dollars to feed these movements. Their success has left a trail of failed social experiments.

Police: knock, knock
Vikingdad: wat up?
Police: we know you have illegal guns. Don't commit any violent crimes today.
Vikingdad: oh, ok

Police: knock, knock
Potential victim: hello officer
Police: we know you're potientally a crime victim. Don't be a crime victim today.
Potential victim: thank you officer for letting me know.


PROBLEM SOLVED! The Chicago Police Superintendent is a genius!!!

(by the way - not picking on you Viking - just used you as an example)

Here's a novel idea, let's stop the war on drugs and guns and other inanimate objects and start a war on criminals.
