Ban Everything!

Someone made a funny in a comments section:
  • I was at a crime scene where someone was stabbed to death. Lets outlaw knives!! Maybe when someone is beat to death with a bat, outlaw bats!! It's amazing how people can point the finger at anything when they do not want to address the real issue.
Guess what? In Britain, that's exactly what they're trying to do. After banning guns and seeing their crime rates skyrocket out of control, British doctors are pushing a knife ban. From The Scotsman.com
May 2005:
  • LONG, pointed kitchen knives should be banned as part of a concerted effort to reduce the terrible injuries and deaths caused by stabbing attacks, doctors warned today.
  • Home Office spokesperson said there were already extensive restrictions in place to control the sale and possession of knives. "The law already prohibits the possession of offensive weapons in a public place, and the possession of knives in public without good reason or lawful authority, with the exception of a folding pocket knife with a blade not exceeding three inches.
Thank goodness this can't happen in America, right? Wrong!
  • That was the case as well in the Boston area, where a rise in gang violence involving machetes occurred in the past several years. The surrounding towns of Revere, Everett, Lynn and Chelsea have banned machetes, and there is now a bill before the Massachusetts Senate that would prohibit the carrying, sale and manufacture of the tool-turned-weapon.
Ban guns, as Britain and Massachusetts have done (and Chicago), and guess what? Only criminals have the guns. They are already breaking the law, why would they care what politicians ban? All they are doing is disarming more and more law abiding citizens and denying them the ability to defend themselves. EVERY SINGLE LEGITIMATE STUDY shows that increased gun ownership REDUCES crime. And the minute guns are a more difficult to get, out come the machetes (as Britain and Massachusetts have proven).

What did the African-American Police league mouth-piece do to get the 30-pending?

I saw the letter at our district desk. I know she's always running her mouth about something.

What was the reason for her latest suspension?

SCC's post was, as usual, right on the money. People don't want to place responsibility where it belongs - on the people who commit crimes. Years ago a judge was stabbed during a robbery. The press jumped on the "let's tear down the building where the offender lived" bandwagon because, obviously, it was the 'building' that was the problem in the neighborhood. The shithead's criminal history and culpability was never questioned. It was the 'building's' fault.

Can't remember if it is Sweeden or Switzerland but every citizen has a gun in his/her house and everyone is part of the country's militia. No problems there with gun violence!

Too late for the Hill Street sign. Check 1100 North in 018.

Rush Street, Jackson Blvd. and Jackson Park are already taken.

Since jet-set Jesse lives just south of the park, he probably denies that the seventh president of the USA even existed. We all know that the park was named after him and Michael the pedophile.

Guns and weapons are for girliemen! Lets lift weights and get strong. Learn kungfu or karate! You don't need guns. They don't have a gun problem in Japan. Why? Because there are NO guns! Lets get rid of them here.

I think all citizens should be forced to turn in their guns. To show support for my proposal, millions of "This House is Gun-Free" stickers should be prominently displayed on the cribs of those who no longer have guns.

All pigs should leave their guns at the station house.

GUNS KILL!

ITS BECAUSE OF GUNS THAT AMERICA IS SO VIOLENT! In Japan they don't have a gun problem. The cowboy days are over. Void the 2nd Amend. its no longer needed. Only in America do they like to play army and cowboys and indians when they are adults. A MENTAL PROBLEM?

TRUE, Japan has some of the strictest gun control in the world. But Japan has a lower crime rate because it is a homogeneous society. Practically everyone there is Japanese! Japanese are also deeply honorable people. Unlike our shitheads (which come in every color and creed) most Japanese would be ashamed to do stupid shit, therefore they don't. Our shitheads don't give a shit, hence the name shithead.

And for our "This House is Gun-Free" stickers......ASSHAT, post one of those stickers in your house and tell me you feel better! Another dickwad.

It's the person willing to pull the trigger that's the problem. Do we outlaw cars because of drunk drivers? Do we outlaw tall buildings and bridges because people jump off of them?

Our society really jumped into the shit when individuals stopped being held responsible for their conduct. It's not the gangbanging piece of shit who shoots an innocent child.....it's the goddamn gun! Right.....the gangbanger is a victim then, that poor ol' evil gun just jumped into his hands and made him kill someone.

In case you forgot, it's already agains the law to kill someone. It's already against the law to shoot someone without justification. It's already against the law to do just about anything that's harmful to someone else. We don't need more laws, we need accountability of those who break them.

Laws that aren't enforced make contempt for all laws. Start locking these lunatics up for a while and maybe then it will change. Also, let honest people carry concealed like they can in almost every other state in this country.

Why can't Daley ban Englewood from the city? Do a Meigs on it.

Well I see Ms. Mitchell is stating in her "column" today that police took 30 minutes to get there for the latest kid killing in Englewood.
According to the family of the dying child, police took 30 MINUTES to arrive and it sounds like the call taker was asking if there was still shooting going on. It made it sound like officers wouldn't show until the shooting stopped. This is disgusting. WHAT ABOUT HOLDING THE SHOOTERS AND GANGS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS?!!!!!!

I am soooo frustrated with these things getting turned around so that it becomes everyone elses fault but the shooter. Maybe Mary will get a street sign on a corner where they are slingin rock. Maybe the family will sue and the city will just settle....as usual. Lots of maybe's but one thing is constant. Nothing will change. Did it change when that 11 yr old Yummy Sandifer gunned down an innocent kid?... The media and the "community" were more outraged that Yummy...poor little baby was forced to use a gun and then got offed by his own kind. WTF?

Last period I was at the scene of an 011th District "domestic battery just occured" on North Hamlin Avenue. A verbal altercation ensued when the male wanted the female to make him a sandwich and she told him no because she was frying chicken. Upon arrival police de-escalate the situation and prepare to escort the male outside. Ol'boy seizes the opportunity, however, and throws a frying pan loaded with chicken parts and hot lard at the female and nails the beat guys as well. Click, click.

Upon return to the Area an examination of similar incidents involving poultry related batterys provided the evidence I needed to petition local lawmakers to enact a seven day waiting period prior to the purchase, preparation, or consumption of fried chicken.

And you should haver seen the little strays chase the beat car down the street with the aroma of fried chicken wafting through the Fillmore air...

i'm sick and tired of paying for the englewood mentality.
link cards, wick, reproduction up to 5x, medical and then ssi.
these people have never paid income tax! they know their rights but have no concept of responsibility.
and now, as a result of their criminal actions, the local polititions want to dissarm ME!
one day the real problem will be aknowledged and society will turn a blind eye and allow the police to target these criminal street gangs in the most effective manner.
until then, the violene will continue in spite of any bullshit bans.

Hey how do you expect the blacks to act. Thats the positive reinforcement they receive from the politicians. They expect it because its been handed to them all along for their vote.

Chicago blacks are a disease and thats all there is to it.

I think we should ban murder, ban aggravated battery, ban criminal damage to property, ban theft............wait, we did that a long time ago.

I love the gungrabbers, ban this, ban that.....duh. Laws that aren't enforced make a mockery of the law. Try locking the assholes up for a long time and hold them accountable for their crimes. And I don't care if they didn't know their daddy when they were growing up!

Are retired CPD still supposed to register guns with the city every year?

It was a stupid ordinance in the first place. Why would anyone in their right mind register weapons with Daley's Gun Registration and pay a fee?

H.R. 218 for retirees would nullify any city ordinance.

The FOID card should be enough.

The only thing keeping the Red Chinese and others that would do us harm from invading this country is the belief that every home in America has a gun in it, and a person willing to defend it to the death. Take that away and kiss your country and ass goodby. Paranoid? maybe but I think that's what the 2nd amendment is all about. You know the part about armed militia. After all who is going to protect you and yours The CPD.... NOT !!!

In response to anonymous who suggests voiding the second ammendment, it's called repeal you doofus,and if your willing to do that why don't you just go so far as to repeal the entire bill of rights. We'll see who cries then when you can't voice your ridiculous opinion. Remember one thing, the Feds couldn't enforce prohibition, stop the importation of illegal drugs, or secure our borders. Ban gun ownership from the honest guys and you better duck!!!
