David Axelrod Attributes Chicago
Murder Rate to Lax Gun-Control
Laws in ‘Surrounding Areas’

National Review Online, by Eliana Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/4/2013 9:44:21 AM

As President Obama prepares to stump for gun-control legislation in Minneapolis today, David Axelrod offered him a helping hand on morning television. In doing so, Axelrod attributed the murder rate in the city of Chicago, which is subject to some of the most stringent gun-control regulations in the nation, to the lack of such laws in surrounding areas. “We live in Chicago, and one of the reasons we have such a huge problem in this city is that all around us are areas with weak laws and with very lax background checks and a lot

So in extension then, lax guns laws in Texas and Alaska are causing gun related crimes in Chicago and NYC then?

What a twit! Of course, people like my father will agree with him...

Yeah, just like the lax liquor laws in Canada caused gang violence in Chicago back in the 1930s.

It´s a racist plot! White suburbanites, Cheeseheads and Hoosiers are selling guns to black and hispanic gangbangers in an effort to reduce the minority population of Chicago.

I just thought of a solution Axelrod, just built a fence around Chicago and nobody can get in to sell the guns, then you can go neighborhood to neighborhood and confiscate all the guns that are there. That should solve your problem of other places doing such a nasty thing to Chicago.

So is the undeniable street drug problem also caused by lax drug laws in surrounding areas? Huh?

You have a failed socialist experiment with low/no income losers all congretated in a high population innter city, the product of the liberal programs that have almost obliterated the black family. That´s why you have violence. If they didn´t have guns, they would use knives, bats, or whatever was available.

I saw something interesting last Saturday. Hillsborough County, FL had a one-day weapons turn-in program, $75 for any firearm. Across the street, at least a half dozen enterprising people set up stands with signs saying "We buy guns for cash." Looked like they were getting all the good stuff, the cops got the crap. Has anyone else seen this phenomenon?

I think we have had enough of this idiot Axelrod - he just needs to go away. He has stained the nation by giving us Obama. He will burn in hell for assisting the voter fraud perpetrated on this country.

Still playing the blame game. IF Sarah Palin were the mayor of Chicago, it would be her fault. Just remember Comrade Axelrod, when you point that bony finger at someone else, four are still pointing back at you.

I suspect that what is reported as heavy smog in Chicago is actually accumulated pot smoke. This would explain a lot of strange thinking and paranoia about folks from out of town.

I guess what he means is people come to Chicago to kill because of the lax law enforcment in Chicago. Might get arrested if they do it in the surrounding areas.

What a crock. Illinois has some of the most stringent gun-control laws in the country. You can´t buy or own a gun legally without a state-issued Firearms Owners Identification Card, and it´s been that way since 1968. Illinois law mandates a three-day "waiting period" for handguns - you pay for the gun after passing the background check, but you can´t have it for three days. The waiting period for rifles and shotguns is one day. There is NO legal way to carry concealed, unless you´re a cop. Gun-grabbers always make this argument; it´s phony.

So, by that reasoning, the areas with lax gun laws should be in murdering rampages at even higher levels than Chicagoland? Why would the murder rate in Chicago be so high? By liberal Axelrod´s reasoning, it would seem the mass murderers from the lax gun law areas just pick up and go on murder vacations into Chicago because? Could it be the low chances of being caught by the lax police in Chicagoland? Something draws them in.

He would be on target if he rightly blamed the high Chicago murder rate on the large number of criminals who reside in Chicago. An article the other day advised that about 92% of the criminals who murder people in Chicago, and who are thereafter identified, are never criminally prosecuted under current law. If the gun laws are so "lax" in areas surrounding Chicago, why don´t those surrounding areas have high murder rates similar to the Chicago murder rates?

Facebook removes my post about

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
