Can you name the only city in America to break the 500-murder level last year? Was it your city? Let’s find out.
Murder City U.S.A., Chicago, Illinois, under the crack antigun leadership of one Rahm Emanuel. The street gangs and the Mexican cartels run hog wild (read Gangsterville) while citizens cower. Illinois, as of this writing, is the only state in America that does not let its citizens protect their families with a concealed weapons license. As for Castle Doctrine, forget it. Come onto a property in Castle Doctrine Florida, gun in hand with a clear intent to do harm, and you may not need a seat for the Oscars.
In Chicago, you’re forced to fight off the street gangs by swinging the Sunday newspaper. In fact, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy thinks the second amendment is a danger to public safety. And the city thinks what is needed are more gun controls? Bet the former Cabrini-Green ‘hood gang members will be lining up for all those background checks. Americans are being snookered by the pols on the subject of gun controls. And New York Governor Cuomo is the worst offender of all. Could there be two states where you and your family are less safe than Illinois and New York? Once said, upstate New Yorkers are not in the same sinking deadly boat as NYC and environs. Many upstate law enforcement officers have scant interest in enforcing the new Cuomo gun control scheme. Furthermore, their Governor is stone walling citizens on just what the penalties are for noncompliance. Rebellion figures to pick up steam.
