Chicago shootings are up 200% from last year.
There are dozens of articles on the police shooting video from 2013 but the MSM seems uninterested in reporting on the fact that the city is exploding in violence.
Democrats are still talking about the “gun show loophole” and background checks when a University of Chicago study found that criminals get their guns from friends and family. House Democrats are trying to ban assault rifles even though it is extremely rare for them to be used in homicides when compared to handguns.
When it comes to proposing laws there is clearly a misdirection of focus on the part of Democrats. If they are serious about reducing gun violence then they need to look at where it mostly occurring and how those guns are being acquired.
What we are seeing is the acceptance of anarchy by both political parties and the mainstream media. Democrats especially should be ashamed since they have had total control of this city for decades and yet they are spending legislative time on gun shows that are mostly patronized by rural Whites and rifles rarely used in crimes. Their refusal to face the reality of a warzone in their own jurisdiction is appalling. Sadly the only circumstance that will likely capture the attention of politicians is an exponential increase in violence to where local government services are unable to function.
