Rahm Emmanuel's Chicago: Murder and Mayhem Reign in a City with Strict Gun Laws

Some of the strictest gun laws in the country as a matter of fact.

You'll remember Rahm Emmanuel: Former top aid to Barack the Terrible: Current arrogant, detestable punk mayor of Chicago. (He was an arrogant, detestable punk when working for Barry as well, but that's pretty much standard fare for hard-core leftists.) Not only was Rahm a top aid to Barry, he's also a big buddy of Barack the Terrible from way back in his "community organizer" days.

At any rate, Rahm is foursquare in favor of the strictest gun laws possible and Chicago has them. Problem is, just like in every other city with strict gun laws, they don't work and in Chicago's case they really don't work ... To the tune of 310 homicides so far this year (259 by gun), 53 last month and more in September than we've had days so far -- 9 homicides in 6 days. Check out the details at (presumably referring to Chicago's jackass mayor).

What's the point here? Well, with all the yapping Barry did over Trayvon Martin -- one young man shot in self-defense -- have you ever heard Barack Hussein Obama address the horrific stats in his hometown Chicago or what his big buddy Rahm is doing to address the problem? You won't. He can't address it because that would mean he would have to face the fact that the gun control policies he and his buddy Rahm support have failed.

John Lott documents the fact that liberal gun control policies don't work in his book More Guns, Less Crime. The facts are indisputable: States and other jurisdictions with right to carry laws have lower overall crime rates. When criminals don't know who might have a gun, they are less likely to try to victimize anyone. Additionally, when law-abiding citizens are armed, they are able to defend themselves and others against thugs who are trying to victimize them.

Don't take my word for it, or even John Lott's word for it. Look it up in the FBI Uniform Crime Statistics. Yet lefties like Barry and Rahm continue to cling to the notion that keeping guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens is a good thing. It's why Rahm Immanuel and Barack Obama have the blood of 259 2013 Chicago gun homicides on their hands but won't say a word about it.
