Chicago: Fireworks For The Fourth – 5 Shot Dead, 27 Wounded, 3 Days To Go In The Gun Free Paradise

But there are no murders in Arkansas’ headlines.

The Chicago Sun Times reports a typical start to a weekend in Chicago, where guns are banned unless you are a Chicago Alderman named Mell. So far the banging weekend has produced at least five shot dead, with 27 wounded.

In the meantime, in the heavily armed State of Arkansas, where people can tote a gun any way that pleases them, this mornings headlines do not mention a single new murder. Motorcycle fatalities down by 45%, a lady got a surprise visit from the stem cell donor who saved her life, a suspect was arrested in a May murder, two more children have drowned in backyard pools, and life goes on in well armed Arkansas.

While the citizens of gun free – except for Aldermen named Mell – Chicago have little to celebrate except death.


Updated, 8 July, 2013: As of Noon, July 8, with the four day weekend behind us the confirmed totals are 13 dead, 74 wounded, and “several” critical in that Shooting Gallery by the Lake called Chicago.

    Anti-Gun Supporters are, obviously, Anti-Independence Individuals. Oddly, they continuously support “Gun-Free-Zones” (and Cities) with no regard for the loss of life these laws, quite directly cause.
    The Anti-Gun crowd is ever willing to allow our children to be massacred in their unprotected schools. They obviously feel the same way about entire Cities experiencing ‘MASS SHOOTINGS’ on a weekly basis.
    With 31 people shot in the “Unarmed City” on the first day of a four day weekend, it would seem logic would be realized.
    Who would send their children to a “Gun-Free-Preserve” completely unprotected?
    Dumb Luck is a poor security plan. I pay extra to for my Grand-Children to attend a school, that provides armed protection. My wife and I believe they are worth it.

    Other people will send their children to Newtown, Columbine… and if they survive by pure luck, maybe send them to VIRGINIA TECH. (there’s a plan)

    well once again the stats speak for themselves. from my cold dead hands

    I say…divert millions of round of ammunition purchased by the Department of Homeland Security to Chicago and had them out free. Let all these ignorant savages kill each other off and be done with them. Better still…tally up all the hospital costs these animals incur and deduct these amounts from the federal welfare programs paid into this urban zoo yearly. The Baboons at the zoo in the Primate exhibit are more civilized than these ignorant pavement apes.

    Joe, it would be a great deal better to allow the 95 percent of Chicagoan’s who are decent and law abiding people the right to defend themselves against criminal aggression.

    For a city of about 2.5 million, it would take less than a dozen gangbangers winding up “clutching a lily” to put a stop to most random shootings and a major slowdown on criminal on criminal violence.

    It would take something else, lawful economic opportunity for Chicago’s gang members, to almost completely stop gang violence. But that cannot happen until the Combine stops looting Chicago.

    And that cannot happen until the citizens get the right to shoot back. Which cannot happen as long as the gangs vet the Aldermen – or until the Feds step in and put a bunch of highbinders in the jug.

    Which cannot happen so long as a Combine member or Combine client is in the White House.

    Betcha that most if not all of these victims were black!!! When a white person kills a black, the liberal-lefty media harps on it forever(the racism)!!! However when it is black on black murder(42%), it is a non-chelant attitude!!! No one cares even in the black community, yet the whole black community is calling for rioting if George Zimmerman is aquitted in Sanford Florida over shooting Trayvon Martin!!!Also this shows when folk cannot exercise their second admendment rights the killings&shootings go on and on!!!

  7. Stranger says:

    No bet. Chicago’s gun law, like Illinois FOID law, were overtly intended to disarm blacks. So while Chicago’s white homicide victimization rate is not far out of line with the demographic’s national rate; the disarmed black’s homicide victimization rate is more than four times the national rate.

    More guns mean less crime – and gun control kills.


  8. J. Allen Lindner says:

    It’s incredible that gun control has any credibility at all. If banning guns kept them out of the hands of criminals, then why hasn’t banning drugs done that? Nuff said.

  9. Kirk Viggiano says:

    FBI crime stats clearly show that the more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens, the lower the crime rate.

    Gun control is UNCONSTITUTIONAL, INEFFECTIVE, and DANGEROUS. Criminals always obtain guns – so don’t take them away from law abiding citizens!

  10. Willie Wonka says:

    Once again, it’s not about gun control, it is about people control. Government(s) always go after the easiest population to control, which is the law abiders to usher in the control issues. All despot regimes have always practiced civilian disarmament.

  11. Nick says:

    Over 500 homicides in Chicago last year, only 25% have been solved and 2013 is already out-pacing that. 42 murders in January 2013 alone. Seems the “Gun-Free” mayors plan has backfired severely. The man is corrupt and discusting and needs to go. The anti-gun lobby needs to back off too. These statistics show what happens when you disarm the people. The criminals will never, ever be disarmed. This proves that.

    Ronnie says:
    True, but who cares if it is black, white, asian or whatever. A human life is above all the most important to sustain and respect.

  13. dave says:

    Liberals must suffer from brain damage or something. Or, perhaps they are just MENTALLY ILL. The stats of considerably LESS crime where there are conceil carry laws for firearms, these stats do NOT lie !!!!!! And, it’s pure, simple LOGIC that when honest citizens MAY have a gun, the F*CKING thugs definately think twice before attacking a stranger on the street. It’s a NO BRAINER that that will be the case. Thus, when there are conceil carry laws, crime DROPS. Period. Apparently, however, those *SSHOLES who run Chicago ARE brain damaged or just MENTALLY ILL, because they just DON’T GET IT. Those CLOWNS (the Mayor, police officials, city council membrs, etc.) are UNFIT for their positions and should be VOTED OUT or FIRED as soon as posible. The longer these idiots are in power, the more Chicago will degenerate into a 3rd world WAR ZONE !!!!!

  14. Stranger says:

    Chicago is a criminal enterprise, run for the benefit of the gangs, the mob, the corrupt contractors, the equally corrupt unions, and the Chicago political machine. A late 19th Century New Yorker would say Chicago “out Tammany’s Tammany Hall,” referring to Gotham’s notorious political machine.

    But in general “progressives,” as gun control activists prefer to be called, are ignorant of numbers, unable to drag their minds out of their accustomed ruts, and derisive of those who can. Arguing with a cow progressive is an exercise in futility.
