Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel is proposing the institution of more so-called "gun-free zones" in the city, emulating but not surpassing the record-holder for illogical anti-gun mayors, Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York, who is in a league all his own.

With its record-breaking number of 500 homicides in 2012, 435 of which were by gun shot, and 318 homicides thus far in 2013, 264 shot and killed, 1,363 shot and wounded, Chicago is clearly one of the best places in America to be if you have the desire to get shot. Entire websites are dedicated to tracking the numbers shot and killed or wounded weekly in the Windy City. Measured on a daily, weekly even annual basis, the number of people shot and killed in Chicago eclipses those of gunshot casualties by U.S. service members in Afghanistan.

These Chicago statistics are perplexing to those on the extreme left of the gun-control legislation debate. It's a well-known fact to all on both sides of the issue that Chicago has some of the most stringent gun-control laws in the United States. The city of Chicago and/or the state of Illinois have banned "assault weapons", restricted magazine capacities, prohibited automatic firearms, prohibited short-barreled shotguns, prohibited silencers, to possess or purchase firearms or ammunition Illinois residents must have a Firearm Owner's Identification card issued by the state police, on and on the sea of gun-control, 2nd-amendment eclipsing legislation goes. It's a gun-control legislation enthusiast's utopia. Yet the city's mayor has seen fit to propose the implementation of city-wide "gun-free zones." Why? Why would such "zones" even be necessary in a city where gun-control legislation is supposed to have guns under control?

I would define it as Rahm Emanuel's Free Fire Zones.

Gun Free Zones :2rofll:

Just as bad as the liberal Los Angeles City Council designating the highest gang infested neighborhoods as "Gang Free Zones." And they even posted yellow signs with a silhouette of a gang banger in a red circle with a line going through the circle. I #### you not, that's the way liberals think. :shoot :gunsmilie:gunner:

I remember when Senator Dian Feinstein had a CCW and packed a .38.

When questioned about why should law abiding citizens be disarmed and not her? This is when the term "Do as I say not as I do" was coined in references to liberals.

I think the Liberals continue the "Gun Free Zone" nonsense because they have no solutions for the social problems they have caused, they cannot admit that their programs are the real problem and they want their cattle to keep thinking guns are the problem. To Liberals, the "Agenda" trumps all other concerns, such as bodies piling up.

I support the law-abiding folks in Chicago and the rest of our state to conceal-carry.
I am taking a lot of grief for this.
But I will stand my ground.
Must be a local liberal Aspen, Colorado joke. ?
