Another violent Chicago weekend leaves 5 dead, nearly 50 injured

A tally sent by police to Fox News on Monday said that in addition to the five dead, there were 47 people wounded in the gunfire from 6 p.m. on Friday to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday.

In a news conference on Monday afternoon Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot sounded an oft-heard alarm: “We have way too many guns on the street.”

But if not for the very strict gun laws it would have been 500K deaths. Boy are they going to have a red flag law list in that city, LOL. They are going to have to hire a librarian to keep it up to date and straight.

I once was scheduled to attend a work related week long
computer database seminar in Chicago but when the
company I worked for at the time processed the travel
details and saw that it was Chicago, they would not cover
the customary insurance costs related to corporate travel
including personal life insurance for the end to end duration
of the trip and told me I was strictly on my own so I
flat out refused to go and my employer never said a
word in objection.

Bah, Memphis morning news said 6 shot just last night (and one fleeing into Mississippi that they rounded up that set fire to a woman and grabbed her little daughter). Chicago gotta up their game if they wanna stay in the big leagues.

The TAPS Act, (many R's are also backing along with the federal red flag laws) is supposed to allow them to build up, yet another government swat entity and all the tracking infrastructure, of local/regional teams of jack booted enforcers to "respond" (to things like "red flag" enforcement). IMO we don't need more laws or enforcers. Want to pass a new law, have to repeal two.

Oh I agree. Red flag laws is just a end around play to ban firearms. Can't ban the firearm ban the man that uses them.

Yet another Federal department (TAPS) to be weaponized for political use, just like the FISA Courts/IRS/FBI/CIA/DoJ/etc., which Trump, of all people, should have fresh first hand experience with from the wrong side of and be extremely leary of supporting/advocating.

Griz too.
Tom I, Tom II, and now I guess maybe Tom III, are more impressive. Years ago, I was sitting waiting to merge onto Getwell when a parade of police escort came by, following by a truck with a trailer carrying Tom II in an open, barred, trailer. That cat (white tiger) looked happy and regal with the wind blowing through his fur as he went by. Mascot suits can't approach the real thing. :D

Here we go! Just what some of us have been saying watch out for this guy!

SO now if you speak out against anything or anyone, show any anger or being upset you will loose your gun rights.

Almost makes you wonder if it's a way of sabotaging/scuttling them when they hit court down the road...
Some argue that DJT plays 3D chess while the rest of us and his opponents play checkers …

I don't think that's true with respect to this tweet though. JMO.

And as much as many Carter/Clinton/Bush/Obama appointed federal judges hate President Trump, they hate legal gunowners and the NRA even more.
