According to youngcons.com, there were 13 dead and 55 shot in Chicago shootings over Father’s Day weekend.
Because of the Orlando shootings, liberals are on one of their anti-gun kicks again, calling for gun control, bans on assault weapons, yada, yada, yada. What more proof do liberals need that strict gun control laws do nothing to stop violent criminals from killing people? 13 Dead, 55 Shot in Chicago Over Father’s Day Weekend.
According to MSN, Chicago recorded its 300th homicide this weekend (homicides for the year?) and added six others over a 60 hour period that saw 55 people shot, 13 fatally, from Friday afternoon through early Monday morning.
So far this year, close to 1800 people have been shot across the city and more than 200 of those wounded have died from their wounds, according to records kept by the Chicago Tribune. A total of 306 people have been killed this year by shooting, stabbing, or other means.
A three-year-old boy was among the wounded who survived the weekend Chicago shootings. Police said that he was in critical condition after being shot in the right shoulder in the Woodlawn neighborhood at 6:15 pm on Sunday. The boy was in a car seat when an unknown attacker fired shots at the car.
So, President Obama, Oprah Winfrey, how is gun control working in your hometown? Attorney General Lynch, Reverend Al Sharpton, just how is gun control working?
Yesterday, a liberal Facebook friend posted on how she loved the city of Chicago, but was lamenting about the shootings and deaths this past weekend (Father’s Day weekend). She was saying something’s wrong, something’s got to be done. One of the commenters to her post indicated that we had to stop the hate. This particular Facebook friend is in show business and also happens to be black.
While I’ve known about the many shootings in Chicago for years, it sure sounded like my FB friend was just discovering this. While information on skin color was not indicated in the article on youngcons.com, majority of the crime taking place on the weekends in the south side of Chicago, is black on black crime and gang related.
I commented on my friend’s post indicating that these shootings have historically been black on black and gang related. I also indicated that Chicago has some of the most stringent gun laws in the nation and opined that having an armed populace would certainly diminish the number of shootings. I also stated that if this country’s so-called black leaders should concentrate on the problems in Chicago and the many Chicago shootings and similar scenarios in other U.S. cities instead of encouraging rioting and looting for those isolated incidents when somebody white shoots somebody black, the number of shootings would decrease. Immediately after I posted my comment, someone else agreed with me and asked the whereabouts of the Reverend Al Sharpton and Oprah Winfrey, a Chicago resident.
Within five minutes our comments had been deleted from my liberal FB friend’s post. Guess she didn’t like what we had to say. Did she not like my comment about Chicago having some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation? Did she not like what I said about the shootings in Chicago shootings being mostly black on black and gang related? Did she not like what I said when I indicated that the nation’s so-called black leaders needed to pay more attention to the scenarios in Chicago and elsewhere instead of encouraging looting and rioting when someone white kills someone black? I suspect she was unhappy with everything I posted, but I suspect that what actually got my commented deleted was my comment about black on black crime and the actions of the black leaders.
Until we can properly address an issue and “tell it like it is,” we’re not going to be able to solve it. But do the liberals really want the crime issue in Chicago solved? I tend to think not. Liberals just want to gain as much control over our lives as possible, and are willing to take that control in small bites until one day when we wake up and find that all of our freedoms have been stripped from us.
Going back to black on black crime, liberals, including black liberals, just don’t seem to care about it. In the early 1980s, someone was killing black children in Atlanta. Just knowing the killer was someone white, the black leaders giving emotional speeches, gathering the troops together, and gearing up for large demonstrations against the white community. When the killer turned out to be black, everything was dropped, the outrage no longer existed. It appeared that the black community didn’t care about blacks killing blacks back then and they still don’t. Until that changes, blacks are going to continue to die at the hands of other blacks. And that’s disturbing to this white conservative blogger.
Am I going to be called a racist for my comments? I’m sure I will, but it won’t be the first time. Do I think my comments were racist? Maybe a little, but I want this problem solved, and that’s more than I can say for liberals.
