I feel safer already

The Failure of Lori Lightfoot’s Anti-Violence Plan is an Impenetrable Mystery
https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/the-failure-of-lori-lightfoots-anti-violence-plan-is-an-impenetrable-mystery/

The first of the key parts of her plan is to "Empower and heal those actively engaged in violence, whether victims or perpetrators."   I think this is a fancy way of saying they've made guns even more illegal and funneled more money to areas where violence is increasing, but they still can't figure out why the problem is still there.  That's the equivalent of a carpenter saying "I've cut this board off three times and it's still too short, wonder what went wrong?"

CULLING THE HERD

This one confirms my oft-stated position that we should issue guns and ammo to everybody who wanted them and let the gangs fight it out against each other and against armed citizens.

We'd have a spike in shootings for about two months, then it would start to drop to near-zero because of selective culling.

Might get a few innocents and hotheads killed, but I don't think it would be any more than at the present rate.

Believe the Darwin...  :rofl:

I agree. Let the process of natural selection run its course. God knew what he was doing when he created it.

"Empower and heal those actively engaged in violence, whether victims or perpetrators."

I'm all for at least empowering the victims.  To the tune of maybe .38 SPL or .380 ACP "empowerment" minimum levels.

Been noticing more and more news reports where the victim was shot several times in the head which indicates, to me at least, executions. Gang wars are going hot. Meanwhile the democrats fiddle

^ Agreed on that one...

Yeah, as someone said, every bullet has a lawyer attached to it.  Kind of a dumb way of putting it but has a kernel of truth.  The other problem in this respect is the unfettered rapacity of some DAs who will say or do anything to make another "successful" case for their re-election or re-appointment.

Got to love Chicago

Quote
There are a lot of things that will send your eyebrows rising during Chicago’s daily felony bond court hearings. But among the more perplexing are the people accused of illegally carrying firearms while, according to their defense attorneys, they are active members of anti-violence groups.

The past few days have been extra perplexing. At least three men who are supposedly working to end gun violence in Chicago were charged with illegally carrying guns this week while they were already on bond for other felony gun cases. One of the men’s pending cases includes allegations that he shot at two people.

Remember, these guys receive paychecks to “mediate” conflicts in order to avoid violence and bloodshed. While, it seems, settling their own scores by using violence.
