    Gun Rights Leader: 470 Murders in Chicago, Rahm Emanuel ‘Has Some Blood on His Hands’(IL)​




    By: Christopher Goins

    (CNSNews.com) – A gun-rights group says that Chicago’s Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel bears some responsibility for the murder rate in the Windy City, which now totals 470 homicides this year, because of the strict gun-control laws there.

    “Rahm Emanuel has some blood on his hands,” said Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, in a statement. “He and the city council have done everything possible to prevent law-abiding Chicago residents from exercising their restored Second Amendment rights in the two years since the Supreme Court’s landmark McDonald ruling.”

    In June 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 against a handgun ban in the city of Chicago in McDonald v. Chicago.

    But just four days after the Supreme Court decision, the Chicago City Council adopted the Responsible Gun Owners Ordinance which, among other restrictions, requires prospective gun owners to take a firearm safety course at a gun range in order to obtain a permit to own a gun in a home. At the same time, the city council’s decision placed a virtual ban on gun ranges in the city.

    Weapons in law abiding citizens always gives them a better chance of survival against criminals with weapons.

    You gotta love the total and absolute lack of logic and intelligence in the gun nuts' arguments for why there should be a gun in every hand. Including those who are mentally ill or criminals.

    Funny funny stuff.

    Got to love the people who think that criminals are going to somehow be disarmed if we pass a law prohibiting guns and then resort to insults to somehow argue against such "illogical" ideas as letting honest people have weapons to defend themselves.

    Criminals cant get guns legally. They get them illegally. Smart one, ey? If you take the guns from good people, how are they going to defend themselves against the criminals that will STILL have them? I dont think a spaghetti noodle can deflect a bullet

    Yeah, you really have to wonder about the fact that the marjority of those murders 99.9% of them are committed with illegal guns used by felons. And truth be told, where honest individuals licensed to carry pistols are present there is less crime. Hard to figure out when Chicago like New York City have the most strictest gun laws in the nation, yet the highest crime stats in the nation.

    Gangs aren't shooting law abiding citizens, they are shooting each other....Guess what? they all have guns

    That is why they have shootouts

    It has every where else, why not there? Crime has gone down is every state that has concealed carry laws. Look it up.

    Giving gangs more guns will decrease the murder rate?

    More public shootouts will decrease the number of murders?
