Nearly 300 People Shot in Chicago in January, Reminding Us How Well Gun Control Works

| |

Gun Control

Chicago had an abnormally violent January to kick off 2016, with 292 people shot and 51 people killed. It is being reported as the deadliest January in Chicago in 16 years, with a 75 percent increase in homicides compared to last January. Most of it is gang-related according to police.

Somehow even though it is the third largest city in the country, Chicago continues to be home to more violent crime than either New York or LA.

Now, when you consider the fact that Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, how does this bode for all those people including our president who are continuing to push for more and more gun control? (Yeah, that question was rhetorical.)

On a side note, when mainstream outlets report on gun violence and gun stats, the thing they never take into account is how many lives were saved by someone who was able to protect himself simply by having a gun.

For your consideration, here’s a food for thought comment I came across on an article about cities with the least restrictive gun laws:

“Gun death rate” is a phony “statistic” that is all smoke and mirrors. The FBI doesn’t use it because it’s misleading. They use “murder rate” which takes into account killings of all types. Gun death rates exclude murders by all other means. Gun death rates include suicides which are not dependent upon guns (e.g. Japan’s suicide rate is almost twice of that in the U.S. and almost no citizen in Japan owns a gun). Gun death rate includes justifiable shootings and police shootings (e.g. the Boston bomber who was killed by police was included in Bloomberg’s list of “victims of gun violence.”) Gun deaths ignores the lives saved by the presence of a gun (98% of the time the gun is never fired). The DOJ estimates 1.5 million gun defenses a year in the U.S. vs 30K people killed by guns (60% of which are suicides, which are not dependent upon gun ownership as shown by the Japan statistics). Finally, most mass killings happen in gun-free zones (think Post Office – going postal – Chattanooga – Aurora, get it?) No the anti’s don’t get it as evidenced by the murder rate in Chicago, Oakland, Baltimore etc. all of which have ridiculously strict gun laws.

  • It depends on how you define gun control.

    • Reverend Draco

      I define it as, being in control of the gun in your hands – for example, holding your finger away from the trigger until you inte*BooM*

      Sorry, accident.

        As evidenced by another article today though that type of “accident” is perfectly acceptable if you were a costume and carry a badge.

        • Reverend Draco

          Exactly what I was referencing. . .

    • Mr Reynard

      Holding it, with both hands… Your index finger alongside pointing at the target & squeezing the trigger with your middle finger…….
      Oh 7 remember a GUN is not a toy.. If you point a gun at someone, it mean that you want to kill & not playing silly games..You don’t play games with a GUN !

      • I don’t know of anyone who would recommend using the middle finger as the trigger finger.

        • Mr Reynard

          Try it, for quick shooting at a target ! “finger alongside pointing”

          • It would make me flinch in fear of getting bit by the slide. Plus, my trigger finger is easier to get on the trigger from the safe position.

          • Mr Reynard

            Ooops.. Not for left handed… Sorry…

          • I’m not left handed, or middle fingered:-)

          • I just decided to add another prohibition to the three that I have decided to install on any forum that I start: “m/” and whatever it is called’s ilk. If it doesn’t Startpage, it doesn’t play.

          • Reverend Draco

            Well. . . it isn’t a middle finger. . . I don’t know how to do that one. Metal horns it is, then =P

          • Metal horns being indicative of what? =P?

          • Reverend Draco

            Rock on!

            Hell yeah!



          • So the metal is brass?

      Gun Control is being able to hit your target where you aimed at!

      • You will always hit whatever the gun is pointed at. Control is of target, not projector.

  • SP_88

    Gun control is only about the government controlling gun sales to citizens who have the right to defend themselves. Obviously the law can’t stop the acquisition of guns by people who would be prohibited from owning a gun if they get the guns from people who sell them specifically to felons and criminals for the purpose of committing crimes with them. Gang members especially have access to plenty of illegal guns that are not traceable to the criminal. There are plenty of gang members who deal in stolen and illegal guns just for the purpose of selling them to criminals who wish to avoid any background check or having a paper trail that leads back to them. There are no gun control laws that can stop these black market gun sales. But while they have no effect on criminals, they are infringing on the rights of the citizens who need to be able to defend themselves from the people who get their guns on the black market.
    It makes no sense to disarm the good guys while doing nothing to disarm the bad guys. And the politicians have to know that these gun control laws have no effect on criminals. Look at Chicago, they have strict gun control laws, yet the criminals obviously have no problem getting illegal guns. And no amount of gun control laws will ever change that. And if these politicians know this, they must be trying to disarm the citizens and the good guys on purpose.

    As long as the focus is on guns and not inner city youth born to single mothers, the problem of violence in Chicago will never be solved.

    • Shades of Elvis

    • Reverend Draco

      Single mother homes are toxic environments.

      63% of youth suicides
      90% of all homeless and runaway children
      85% of children displaying behavioral issues
      80% of rapists motivated by displaced anger
      71% of high school dropouts
      75% of adolescents in substance abuse centers
      70% of juveniles in state-run institutions
      85% of all youths sitting in prison

      This is what single mothers contribute to the world.

      • Filthy McNasty

        Rev, it is obvious by quoting these facts, that you clearly hate women.

        • Boop Gahev

          The women is not the problem, the delinquent father is the problem. Furthermore, the delinquency of the father is facilitated by the state.

          I blame the delinquent father, and the state which provides a subsidy to his delinquency.

          Really though, when the facts are disliked, attack the messenger. Oldest lawyer trick in the book.

          • Reverend Draco

            The woman is as much a part of the problem as the delinquent father.

            A woman who is so toxic they can’t hold on to a good man. . . not really the man’s fault.
            A woman who is so irresponsible as to procreate with a not good man – not really the man’s fault either.
            If you throw your pussy at random douchebags. . . it’s your fault if it gets filled by someone less than honorable.
            Yeah, yeah – I know – a woman irresponsibly throwing their pussy at random strangers is empowering, somehow. . . at least, according to 3rd-wave feminist SJWs. . .

            When you factor in the Welfare State which punishes married couples and rewards broken homes. . .

        • Reverend Draco

          From your post, it’s obvious that you’re clearly a fucking dimwit.

          My wife would smack the shit out of you in the exact way such a cretin should be smacked the shit out of, for suggesting such inanity. . .

  • The new FBI Director, anointed 2 years ago in SHHEETCAGO doesn’t believe there is a violence threat in that city

  • Mike

    All gun control laws do is embolden criminals by making it extremely difficult for law abiding citizens to protect themselves.

  • LiberalsRLost

    facts are not relevant to the cause of UN & Congress desire of total disarmament…..
    Preaching to the choir may feel good at times but …

  • mirageseekr

    Chattanooga and Aurora?? So false flag fakes count as well I take it.

  • Reverend Draco

    “Pointing a gun at somebody is not very nice but neither is breaking into people’s homes. Furthermore, use of any less effective means of self-defense plays into the hands of the criminal. That isn’t noble, merely stupid.

    “Fortunately, most burglars won’t dare to loiter once they realize that they have been spotted. They are in for the easy pickings and not for ending up between armed homeowners on one side and police on the other. On the other hand, if they suspect that the residents are not armed, they would attack at once to prevent a call for help.

    “Imagine a pack of hyenas stalking a human. As they close in for the kill, their intended prey repulses them with a rifle. As the surviving predators retreat, they think: “If only we could separate that human from her gun!”

    “People who think as those hyenas are less naive than the idealists who wish to ban guns outright. “Gun control” is a misnomer for what they have in mind. They are evil: they wish to control others. One of the easiest way to control other people is by making them defenseless.

    “Communists, fascists and other totalitarians world over have rendered
    their subject defenseless as the first step towards total control. Then they could imprison or murder millions with complete impunity.

    “Who wishes others to be defenseless? Rapists and muggers prefer unarmed victims. Politicians and mafia chiefs who want people to depend on them for protection. Racists who wish to exterminate other peoples: genocide is much easier to perpetrate when the victims are unarmed. In sum, those who wish to have a monopoly on arms are never well-meaning people. They might not admit it, but their narcotic of choice is power over others.

    “Gun control is never about improving safety for those disarmed by it. It has only two purposes. The first is rendering people helpless for extermination or enslavement. The second purpose, more common among the US perpetrators of the practice, is to deny self-sufficiency to the victims of gun control. The same technique is used by the mafia in countries where civilian ownership of arms is rare: people must pay for protection, by voting for their “protectors” or by behaving meekly.

    “Violent criminals are direct beneficiaries of gun control. When the law-abiding are disarmed, they can rob, rape and murder without worrying that an intended victim would retire them from the business of crime.

    “Interestingly, even people in favor of gun control don’t mind that sniper rifles and submachine guns are used to guard the President and members of Congress. Nor do they object to the shotguns and pistols of the bank guards. Apparently, protection of important people and their money is proper in their eyes. These same people object shrilly when a parent wishes to carrying a sidearm to protect herself and the kids. Hypocrites!

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    In typical liberal fashion, the facts about the violence rates in the places with the strictest gun laws gets swept under the rug. Stories about people who defend themselves lawfully with a legally owned/possessed firearm go unreported. False flags and crisis actors are given the spotlight. The ends justify the means.

  • mozzie

    In the UK we have national gun control. We haven’t had 300 deaths across the country I would imagine in 5 years. I have never even been called to an incident even though I was a firearms officer. You Americans are wedded at birth to guns and until you stop deaths will rise. Even if you stopped now, it will take decades to get the guns out from your society. Your prospects are indeed gloomy.

    • If you haven’t had 300 deaths across the country in 5 years, your hospices must be getting pretty full, and your coroners out of work.
      Perhaps you can understand and explain the higher rate of every other type of homicide in your country.
      Why do you hate people being able to defend themselves?

      • Boop Gahev

        Perhaps he is a rapist.

        • Reverend Draco

          Rapists and muggers do prefer unarmed victims. . .

      You’re a lying sack of shit. After you ignorant fucks outlawed guns, knife crimes have gotten so out of control that now ID is required to buy fucking plastic picnic knives.

      Don’t think for a second that your fucking nonsense is going to get you an iota of anything but the ridicule your stupid ass deserves.

    • Boop Gahev

      “We haven’t had 300 deaths across the country I would imagine in 5 years.”

      So where is this fountain of youth?

  • Reverend Draco

    The guy who runs the site came from communist Russia. . . and he – like many Russians – has more respect for our 2nd Amendment than most Americans. . .

    First-hand experience with living in a forcibly disarmed society seems to have that affect on people.

    Facts, data, and statistics, don’t mean shit to a liberal gun control nut job. Nothing we say or do is going to convince frigid moms demand actions to stop strapping on that anti gun dildo.
