Daley is an idiot, gun control is why they have so many shootings only the bad guys have guns. And they don't obey the law.

Abstract:

Analyzing county level data for the entire United States from 1977 to 2000, we find annual reductions in murder rates between 1.5 and 2.3 percent for each additional year that a right-to-carry law is in effect. For the first five years that such a law is in effect, the total benefit from reduced crimes usually ranges between about $2 billion and $3 billion per year....

FBI: Gun sales up, murders down

By Jim Kouri

The Federal Bureau of Investigation reports a ten percent drop in murders during the first six months of 2009, while at a time US gun sales are going through the roof, according to reports obtained by the National Association of Chiefs of Police. Meanwhile, gun sales to private citizens soared almost 30 percent during that same period....

Yeah, his ultimate form of gun control is martial law. He thinks he has complete control, which he won't.

More evidence the antigun liberal wants a global gun ban. Daley knows the only solution to the presence of guns in Chicago is a global gun ban.

There are ten more idiots lined up and ready to take Daley's place. The local newsmedia has the the city's voters completely brainwashed into hoplophobia.

Excessive population led to the rise of socialism in the large cities. Both have led to the popularity of gun bans. After rural people see what city life is like they become repelled by the sight of it.

Typical "progressive" politician, when a policy is an utter failure, ask for more of the same policy. Gun control isn't working therefore we need more gun control.....geezzzzzzz. The sad thing is the STUPID voters that buy into it all.

Daley and his cronies should be tried for treason, and summarily hung by the neck until dead.

Daley has his own bodyguards so why should he care about the honest citizens of Chicago? The thugs doing the shooting should thank Daley for making them so much more powerful by lessening the chance that an honest citizen is armed. I do not advocate blazing gun battles in the street but I am damn sure that if some of the criminal element were to be shot dead in the commission of a crime that they would soon learn that being a criminal can be fatal.

Daley is an idiot, more gun control? The current law states that no person can have a handgun and if you are a convicted felon you cannot have any gun for life. 90% of the violent crime is committed with handguns, not hunting rifles, so these people are not following the law now, what good will more gun laws do? The only new law that can be implemented would be to take hunting rifles and shotguns away from the law abiding citizens, which are the people that are not out committing violent crime. Daley, you are an idiot, give us handguns to protect ourselves from these gangbanging criminals, or should we do what they are doing and just break the law and buy a handgun?

Exactly! And when he has stepped down from office he will move away and we are left with the crime ridden city he has left behind, the politicians don't care about our safety, they care about votes. That's why they are not telling people the truth about where the violent crime is taking place, in the black and Hispanic communities in Chicago. The white areas are just fine, middle class or the rich areas....

Just had an example of that here this week. A thug with a knife was trying to rob an older man. The guy pulled out a gun (perfectly legal here), and shot him. The thug isn't dead, but he may think twice about his career. No charges on the man, it was self-defense. Imagine that, in liberal Connecticut!

Check the Chicago murder rate vs U.S.deaths in Afganistan and Iraq and you'll find it safer to be in the military in a war zone than it is to be on the streets of Chicago. Way to go, Obama!
