That's 12 times more people than were killed in Las Vegas. In one of the strictest places for gun control in the country. Run by Democrats.
And they're on pace again this year.
And most of the guns used to perpetrate those crimes came from Indiana and Wisconsin.
Sort of like stopping at the NH packy on the way home for bourbons unavailable here when I've been south. I don't even have to get off the highway. They make it nice and easy. And cheap.
You’re justifying murdering 59 people in one incident in Las Vegas because 762 people were murdered in Chicago last year?
No, the problem is white males:
America’s white man problem: After Las Vegas, a familiar script unfolds
Oh, really? I'm "justifying it"?
Huh. Go figure.
Roll another bone, Jack. You're stoned again, and may as well stay that way.
Don't let him off that easily by being stupid. He's not "justifying" the murders in Las Vegas. He does, however, seem to be trying to justify liberal gun control laws by comparing the number of deaths in Chicago to those in LV.
And by insinuating that the recent killings were only a tenth of those in Chicago, minimizing their overall significance. Which is also pretty stupid.
I'm doing nothing of the sort. I'm merely pointing out the spectacular hypocrisy of the left and the MSM.
Jack can't help but be stupid. He might have been smart at one time, but the dope smoking killed too many brain cells.
Correlation is not causation, people. Democrats govern Chicago. Okay, so what? Do you think Republicans would be any more successful at addressing the bone-crushing poverty and affinity for gang violence that has plagued that city for decades?
"I'm doing nothing of the sort. I'm merely pointing out the spectacular hypocrisy of the left and the MSM."
Well most gun violence in the city is from hand guns, and most killing sprees (like Vegas) are assault rifles - because hand guns are easily concealed and assault rifles have better range and better penetration.
Obviously if anti gun crowd had their way, they'd ban hand guns in the city as well, but I think they've acknowledged that they've lost that war and are going for the low hanging assault rifle fruit.
Also, it might be said that the majority of gang violence is against other gang members, who voluntarily enter that life. Whereas the concert goers were just innocent people.
Finally, and this should be no surprise, the media always caters to newsworthy stories. This is the same w/ the liberal and conservative media. A killing spree is newsworthy, and gang violence is not. And that's not the media's choice, it's what we choose to watch on TV.
Do you think Republicans would be any more successful at addressing the bone-crushing poverty and affinity for gang violence that has plagued that city for decades?
Absolutely. Almost all the urban decay in America is a result of years of Democrat rule. New York was a dangerous dump. Then a Republican took over, solved the crime and finance problems. Now a Democrat steps in, and the place is turning back into a dump. Maine: 20 years of Democrats, and years of deficits, decaying economy. Now under LePage, surpluses and jobs galore.
Tom may literally have his head in his ass.
Matt, being unable to get a date, has fallen in love with me and follows me around AMG like a love-sick little puppy.
You do seem to provide the most humorous content. Aside from Libby's attempts at constructing sentences.
And yours and a few others' attempts at constructing thoughts.
The murders in Chicago are deliberate attempts to protect or gain turf for the gangs that actual control parts of Chicago and have come to be accepted as a normal course of events and therefore not news worthy. Las Vegas was a random act of violence perpetrated by an individual for some unknown reason because he could. When you have a country of nearly 400 million it is impossible not to have several who are able to perpetrate such incidents. Can you stop it, no. Should you stop it is the question and if so how? At least we should try not to glorify it by making it front page news so those attempting it will know they are not getting their 15 minutes of fame, even posthumously.
"And most of the guns used to perpetrate those crimes came from Indiana and Wisconsin."
And the US Attorney in Chicago refuses to prosecute straw purchases.
The jails are full. Everybody knows that. Jail some small businessman and you have to let somebody out.
Matt just wants somebody to love him.
Isn't that your wife?
Oh, it's Jasper.
Bringing out the rosary beads again.
Come and Take Them.
Never much discussion of how the presence of firearms has saved thousands of lives and stopped 10s of thousands of rapes, burglaries etc.
That is why the crime and murders are so high in gun control areas honest people are afraid unable to access them, only the criminals have them.
To all you anti-liberty bastards, come and take them. We'll be waiting.
I bought a 22 rifle from a worker on a construction site I was on, an old 22 marlin tube fed, 17 rounds would fit down that tube, might be considered an assault rifle by a snow flake. Any who he had spent some time redoing the stock in a glossy lacquer, think he wanted 35 bucks.
But I asked him why you selling this old rifle that you spent some time on and his answer was " I let my fist do my talking". I said "did you punch out a rat today?"
Fortunately here in America we can see the progression and affect of firearm control by those worthless queen worshiping bastards the British Empire. And it is give that bitch an inch and she will have a camera on every street and you'll be soldering that old 22 rifle feeding tube into a single shot.
The queen loves good compliant "subjects" and that is exactly why we need to resist the other queen's resistance and we did of sorts back in November. so what's up snowflakes. ; )
How did this get on WaPo snowflakes?
Mike G is the classic small penis dipshit pseudo tough guy who talks about snowflakes and bitches and how you should just try to take his guns away from him. He's the kind of guy who ends up shooting someone after a fender bender because the other driver who he hit gets agitated and Mike ends up feeling like he's in danger.
Seriously, his attitude exhibits everything that's wrong with bullshit macho American gun culture. Guns are good to own, for a number of reasons. But attitude copping isn't one of them. Unfortunately, stupidity and insecurity do not disqualify one from owning firearms in our country.
Disregarding the first paragraph a point is made in second !
Watched a video of owners firing rifles converted to full auto with devices the smiles were very telling.
762 is the number of firearm deaths in Chicago....? How many other violent deaths were there knifings, beatings etc. that were drug organg related....Chicago is a pretty violent place guns or not.
Matt while you are a just a meaningless turd that expects LEOs to give their lives for some social norm that is doomed for failure.
Good luck with that Matt, I'm sure you won't be knocking on anyone's door expecting to confiscate their property.
PS do you sit when you pee? ; )
Just a few facts to spoil the narrative. The largest percentage is by (those whose race cannot be spoken). So obviously it must be the "White male race".
ps. This is called TRUTH, as opposed to what left wing media tries to propagandize.
Almost 2/3 rd of Gun deaths are suicides and mostly white males because we are lazy and are just waiting, but it never comes, to get in a accident with Matt, the snowflake, from god's knows where.. twiiter twittewr.
Trying to get some conversation goin re my good friend Bruce
"Almost 2/3 rd of Gun deaths are suicides "
That as reported is correct.
My good friend you are on your own for now .
So, Mutt, you're certain yours is bigger than Mike G's. Please share with us how you've come to know this.
I'm referring, of course, to your head and the ego trapped inside it.
Once you finish elaborating on that, you can talk about the more typical understanding of whose is bigger.
