Emanuel to Push New
Gun Control in Chicago

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Breitbart News

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/12/2013 2:38:38 PM

On Tuesday, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that he’d be pushing for new gun control in the city of Chicago, even though it is the most heavily gun-controlled municipality in the country. Emanuel will be hosting President Obama on Friday, where Obama will no doubt shift blame for Chicago’s gun crime problem from the city and onto surrounding areas, despite their lower rates of crime. Said Emanuel: The worst thing would be to say let’s not discuss this, because if we, Chicago, can actually lead the way to commonsense gun laws, commonsense enforcement, and an honest discussion

Comments:
But those nasty NRA advocates were told by the Chicago Police Superintendent that Chicago does not have strict gun laws. And now they will get even worse! I´m really tired of liars.

Because control is working so well now, more will be even better!

What a bunch of tyrants.

FTA: But now Emanuel seems to embracing the conservative notion of law and order, pushing for harsher sentencing for felons carrying weapons, among other measures.

Are we supposed to believe that rahm embraces harsher sentences for felons, when he is mayor of a city that prosecutes something like 4 percent of the gang thug shooters? rahm is trying to look tough on crime, but he´s not. In the FTA above, the operative word is "seems." Any remarks by emanuel to contrary are simply lip service.

Exactly what is "common sense" about gun laws that only the law abiding will obey? Criminals will simply ignore these new laws the same way they ignore the existing laws. That´s why they are called criminals. In the mean time the law abiding citizens will be left even more defenseless against a criminal element grown even bolder because it knows that it´s prey can´t fight back.

Look the demographics of the dead in Chicago, I´ll bet they reflect the story the CDC statistics tell us about where the problem is with guns in this country.

Gang control, not gun control. Take no prisoners and the problem will subside.

Publish the demographics of gun deaths in Chicago. Address these demographics. Declare martial law in these districts and confiscate all firearms therein, with exceptions for demonstrably good behavior. Leave the rest of Chicago alone.

Per Illinois must pass a concealed carry law by June or it becomes a constitutional carry state and Chicago´s gun laws will go pffft.

Richmond VA had a simliar problem. Then they started with Project Exile in which felons comitting crimes with guns were prosecuted under federal gun laws. Not only were the sentences for the federal crimes tougher than just the local drug or robbery charges, but if convicted by a federal court the perp was sent to a prison in another state, far away from the thug´s home, posse, and support system. Suddenly a 4-6 month stint in the local hoosgaw turned into 8-10 years in Wyoming. Not very appealing.

The crime rate in Richmond plummeted as a result.

Once again, enforce existing laws rather than pass new worthless laws that the thugs will also ignore.

There is a danger I doubt the communists have thought of; If their grab at the legally owned guns does not work to curb illegal guns on the street and the deaths thereby caused (black-on-black) then the communists are in another pickle of their own making. Of course, the Pravda media will never expose them for it.

The solution is staring Rahm in the face - - and he doesn´t recognize it.

Just put all law-abiding people into the safety of the prisons - - and let the gangstas roam free to kill each other.

Why can´t Rahm see the obvious?

At least their new police chief knows the answer is mandatory sentencing. 93% Chicago gun criminals walk free... The kid who shot this girl has 2 prior gun offenses in 2012 alone.// resulting in probation.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
