'Over the period of time, 31 people were murdered with a baseball bat in Chicago, which is almost comparable to the rate at which “rifles” were used as a murder weapon over the same period of time'.

Less than 1 percent of the murders in Chicago between 2003-2011 were with what the Chicago Police Department classifies as a “rifle,” which is what an AR-15 would be classified.

In a city with some of the toughest gun control laws in America, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy “acknowledged aiming at assault weapons misses the mark when dealing with Chicago’s gang violence. The weapon used is generally a handgun and rarely is it purchased through legal channels.”'

Good article, READ THE COMMENTS!

So, just WHO is it that they want to disarm? The law abiding. Stictest gun control in Chicago; yeah, THAT works.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms, disarm only those who are neither inclined, nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants. They serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man".

Newtown Parents Want Police To Stay At Schools

by The Associated Press
January 10, 2013 3:43 PM

NEWTOWN, Conn.(AP)— Since the elementary school massacre in her hometown, Sarah Findley has found herself driving by her children's schools in Newtown, checking to make sure police are still stationed outside.

The mother of three is among many people calling on school officials to keep up the police presence at schools in Newtown, which has had two officers at each of its schools since a gunman killed 20 children and six women inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14.

"I think we're all just shaken to the core," said Findley, whose children all attend schools other than Sandy Hook. "I think it made it possible for the people who were maybe wavering about sending their kids to school to actually be able to do it."

Only right whiners would be so f*cking stupid to think that if a drug gang member did not obtain his gun through Fast & Furious that he would be unarmed.
100K guns smuggled into Mexico the past 5 years & it is all the fault of the 2k that made it through Fast & Furious.
It is a viable method of stopping smuggling operations by allowing some to pass & try to track where they go.
It was a risk.
Too bad we just couldn't stop the practice of individuals buying 40 AK47s at a clip. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooo.
Same thing aplies to obama using a tragedy to disarm legal firearm owners and attack the 2nd amendment , only democrats are dumb enough to think taking guns away from lawful owners will keep outlaws and crazies from commiting crime .Only wanna be dictaters fear an armed population .

The housing market problem was caused by corporations (ie... capitalism). They ignored their own standards and got greedy. What you called "warned" should have been more of new regs against the banks and loan makers.
The deficit is a large part a result of bushie's administration. And as far as I'm concerned, a way for Obama to counter flood a sinking ship he inherited. Even McCain thought the economy was fine the same day the stock market tanked another 500+ points.
The tarp mess wasn't as bad as it could have been. I'm not much of a supporter, but I think it was necessary. My biggest problem is they didn't put stronger provisos on those companies that took money.
I agree that the housing market collapse was underpinned by greed. For years before the collapse, I had said greed would be our undoing. But I had also hoped the silver lining would be a wake-up call and the nation rethinking its priorities. It would seem the pendulum swung too far the other way.

But you must ask yourself again and again and again who most rejected any attempt to prevent the housing market crisis in Congress for years.

Greed played a part in politicians refusing to do anything to prevent it as well. An unpleasant but crucial fact is that 7 out of the top 10 politicians were democrats and, then, Senator Obama was #3 on Fannie and Freddie's payroll.

Unless and until you can acknowledge this as a crucial factor, you will always be in denial.

Both Republicans and Democrats share part of the blame, but it is Democrats who are most in denial.

On October, 15, 2002, Bush announced a new national goal: "We have a problem here in America because fewer than half of the Hispanics and half the African Americans own their own home. That's a home ownership gap we've got to work together to close for the good of our country, for the sake of a more hopeful future. We've got to work to knock down the barriers that have created a home ownership gap. I set an ambitious goal: that by the end of this decade we'll increase the number of minority homeowners by at least 5.5 million families. And it's going to require a strong commitment from those of you involved in the housing industry."

now i wonder why anyone would think Dems are in denial about what caused the housing bust?

The idea of the assault like rifle ban & the ban on high capacity magazines is not to stop all crime. The idea is to make these attacks far less lethal.

It is the idea of mass killing that drives some of these wackos.

So, why are you so uninformed?

WASR-10 produced by Century International Arms found repeatedly at crime scenes south of the border
Camron Scott Galloway, 21, walked into X Caliber Guns in Phoenix, Ariz., on Jan. 30, 2008, and filled out forms for the purchase of six AK-47 rifles.
Reliable and powerful, and a bargain at about $500 each, the Romanian-made gun, a semiautomatic version of the iconic Kalashnikov assault weapon, had become popular with the drug cartels in Mexico.
Galloway, who eventually pleaded guilty to a forgery charge and became a cooperating prosecution witness in a broader case, testified that he agreed to act as the purchaser of the Romanian AKs on behalf of a co-worker’s brother, who was trafficking weapons south of the border. Just for doing the paperwork, he earned $100 per rifle.
Four months later, one of the same guns that Galloway signed for surfaced in a safe house used by the Beltrán Leyva drug cartel in northwest Mexico. The discovery followed a deadly shootout between federal agents and drug dealers in Culiacán, the capital of the Pacific state of Sinaloa. Eight police officers were killed.
http://www.publicintegrity.org/2011/02/03/215...
so how many guns have gone to Mexico that had nothing to do with Fast and Furious?
many more than some would like us to know.
Tens of thousands of weapons have made their way out of the US to Mexico and other Latin nations.

Project Gunrunner (2006) spawned Operation Wide Receiver, Fast and Furious and other gunwalking adventures including the Tampa ATF's Operation Castaway featuring Hugh Crumpler III.

It's beyond unreasonable to single out Fast and Furious for discussion as each of the harebrained BATF schemes created mayhem, carnage etc. But then I suspect you too took note of the FOX links.

You act as though it was Fannie & Freddie that were to blame. The truth is they were only participants along with the other financial institutions.

The Banking industry was heavily funding Republicans especially George W Bush.

This happened 6 years into the Bush Administration. It started in 2006. Every department of the federal government had been run by Republicans for those 6 years.

You really need to quit trying to blame others when it was primarily Republicans driving this bus when the sh*t hit the fan.

If you go back & look at the changes to the banking industry the past 20 years that had a part, they were Republican driven. Talk to Graham Bailey & Leach.

Deregulation Deregulation Deregulation. Thank you Republicans.

You would think you fricken idiots would learn that no, you can't trust businesses to do what is right.

Dodd Frank addressed this with new regulations to help prevent another government bailout. Who set out to repeal it when they took the House? Republicans./
