  1. I had always thought that it was the “South” portion of Chicago that was dangerous, but I see many of the above incidents reference the “West” side. What happens when peaceful people cannot go about their business in any portion of Chicago? The fact that there is no end in sight to this wholesale slaughter says a great deal about the Democratic regime that is in power. Very sad that this just goes on and on and on . . . .

    • I live a mile from the west side, and occasionally have to venture in there for work during the daytime; I have 6-7 weapons within reach when I drive through there.

      The article Mark Harms referred to below, shows that the march was in vain, and took place for misguided reasons.

      Zero Hedge also had a great take on those events, mentioning that all of this happened under DECADES of Democrat rule: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-07-08/we-live-state-emergency-chicago-protesters-shut-down-highway-demand-americans

      • Man, you travel with that many weapons to go through the west side? Sounds like it’s a war zone.

        • I have a survival knife that can cut through bone, a bowie knife, brass knuckles-I-mean-a brass BELT BUCKLE -shaped like a set of brass knuckles 😉 a cane, a pen with a really sharp letter-opener on the other side, a collapsible baton, and a kids baseball bat small enough that I can easily wield it one-handed. The bat, I call “Lou” – short for Louisville Slugger.

          Mostly survival gear that I can easily improvise into something else if the situation warrants it,

          I decided to start carrying something when one night on my way home from work, a couple of scumbags pulled out in front of me from a bar, and decided to go slow. I pull around & pass them, then they decided to try & jerk me around, and passed me & slowed down again. They pressed their luck one too many times, as when they swung around to pass me on the right, their right front wheel caught the curb at a point where the curb had to curve around a manhole cover. The car spun around a few times and literally disintegrated. I was gonna go right back and rub it in their faces, then thought better of it, and kept going. Not 30 seconds later a Chicago squad car turned onto the road, drove past me, and saw the pile of junk strewn out onto the road, the car had become.

          I wish I could’ve been there just to hear what story they told the cops – if they were conscious, or if the driver got a DUI.

  2. Yeah, that “gun control” really works. Tell me all the shooters were white. Why, if it were illegal for them to have guns……..wait a minute…….it IS!

    So, the net effect is that nobody has the equipment to fire back. If you’re an ignorant punk with an attitude, what more could you ask for?

  3. I’ve heard that guns from Wisconsin and Indiana are the culprit–THEY SAY. You know, how “guns fall into the wrong hands”. I recall some years ago when Michael Bloomberg was mayor of NYC. He blamed their “gun violence” on guns from my home state of Tennessee; “falling into the wrong hands”, of course.

    I would like to know if any of these gunshot victims [or families] agreed to donate their organs post mortum and who arranged this. Organ trafficking is just as prevalent as child sex trafficking.

  8. I find it absolutely stunning that nothing is being done. The mayor is quiet and no one says a word. Why aren’t the people marching on his residence? Where is BLM now? Does this gig not pay enough?

    Here is a town, Chicago, that is up to their gills with gun laws – they cannot have a gun to protect themselves. It is against their Constitutional rights for them to not have a gun. Why are these peoples’ rights being violated? Why doesn’t the ACLU stand up for these people?

  10. It’s the supreme irony that ALL the gun control activists and advocates avoid the ONE place they’re needed MOST like the PLAGUE. They MUST realize how important THEIR input is there.Maybe we need to BUS them there,just for a week or so,so they can REALLY understand what THEIR plans will do.
