Gun free Chicago Ordered by 7th Circuit Appeals Court, to issue carry permits to future victims, so they can shoot back. Why it took so many dead people, to trigger this response, only Rahm Emanuel must know.
Chicago reached “a tragic number” today, according to Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy: Its homicide total for the year hit 500, the highest annual total since 2008.
The city’s latest homicide occurred around 9 p.m. Thursday when Nathaniel T. Jackson, 40, an alleged gang member with a lengthy arrest record, was gunned down outside a store in the Austin neighborhood.
Gang bangers fighting over “drug turf”… What Obama wanted for America so he brought on Fast and Furious — the truth won’t remain in hiding.
As of Thursday night, homicides were up 17 percent over last year in Chicago and shootings had increased by 11 percent, according to police statistics. Earlier this fall, Chicago already exceeded the number of homicides that occurred last year, but this is the first time the city has had 500 or more murders since the 512 in 2008.
Largely contributing to the spike was the unusual number of homicides that occurred during the early part of the year, when the city experienced unseasonable warmth. In the first three months of the year, homicides ran about 60 percent ahead of the 2011 rate.
The police department went back and forth for much of Friday over whether Jackson was the 500th murder so far this year, at first confirming it, and then denying it, saying a murder last week had been reclassified as a death investigation, therefore making Jackson the 499th homicide. But by late afternoon, the department once again confirmed there had been 500 murders.
How can so many people die in a gun free zone? Could it be the criminals know the victims aren’t armed. So … they play their trade, in relative safety. Of course why would a liberal do anything to actually stop it?
Like Obama and the fiscal cliff, if he just stopped spending …. Here is what gun free dos for you. Test for your self, a little sign in the front yard, you can make it yourself just write on it “no guns in this house” display it for all to see. Better not stay home, would be my advice.
