  1. Gun control is working – the killers must’ve been using two hands for better gun control. The kill ratio is usually 10-15% of those shot; Friday, it was 36.

    David Hogg & Emma Gonzalez, where are you? And where is Alyssa Milano? Surely you have all the answers, and can condemn the NRA yet again, even though none of these murderers are NRA members.

    All of this shootin’ must be the animal MS-13’s cause the good folks can’t have guns. Since the fake news love the MS-13 gangs why don’t they go to Chicago and see if they can join their dinner table and see why they like to kill?

    • Fencing and sandbags anyone? You could probably fund at least part of the fence if you started a lead recycling business.

      Remember, leave ’em in there and it’ll sort itself out.

  8. Like I said, if they continue with the current casualty rate, and they don’t get replacements, the thing will sort itself out. I don’t see any “special measures” being employed to bring this under control.

    It’s pretty obvious to me that they have no real interest in stopping this. If this were happening in Rahm’s neighborhood how long to you think it would take them to put that out?

    There are neighborhoods there where they kill their own on a daily basis. So, who’s problem is that? If you transported them all to Rwanda it would look the same.

    So, you can do the “European Model” and import them into quiet neighborhoods so that that, ultimately, all of them are chaos. Or you can ghettoize them and keep it from spreading. No amount of outside interference is going to fix this.

    Originally, in the South, this only worked because there was constant and continuing oversight. Once that went away the North became a playground for violent and anti-social behavior. It’s all been tried before. It isn’t “education”, it isn’t “opportunity”, it is nature.

    At this point I don’t see any reasonable alternative but to turn these violent enclaves into outdoor prisons. The trick is to prevent it from spreading. Eventually it will seek its own level and maybe some alternative can be developed to deal with it.

  9. Lily white commie scum politicians don’t give a damn about black-on-black gun violence.

    They look at is as nothing more than large scale post-natal abortions.

    After all, it’s not the armed criminals they fear.

    -It’s us.
