Gun Sharing

The anit-gunners out again:
  • An art exhibit opening in Chicago’s Daley Plaza suggests buying an AR-15 is no more complicated than renting a bike.

    The exhibit does not explain that we have a natural, God-given right to keep and bear arms but no constitutional right to bicycles.

    CNN reports that the exhibit shows ten fake AR-15s in a rack that looks like the rack from which one can rent a bicycle in larger cities. The exhibit is a project shared by The Escape Pod, a Chicago advertising agency, and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
The accompanying picture is amusing Our readers have spoken of something similar to make carjacking easier:



Isn't it great when people who have never bought (and will never buy) a gun tell you how easy it is to actually buy a gun?

Maybe tone it down to glocks for Chicago.
The idea has promise.

They better have a hose nearby for the progressives to wash the piss off their pants from just looking at those 'high powered assault weapon mouse guns". That's right you dunces, MOUSE GUNS. That's what people that know about firearms call that evil black rifle, the AR15.

What a jip!! I looked for twenty minutes and could not find the credit card slot. Even asked a few bystanders for help.

Is there a credit card kiosk? Or do I have to download an app? Chi-Town AR?

There bike program runs in the negative. The wacko city gives the bike people a few million each year so they can make a profit. If there was a rent a gun program I'm sure it would do better because of all the violence that's left unchecked by the Mayor and Superintendent.

They are advertising whores because they used the

Real firearm rental racks would be a great idea. Stick your FOID and credit cards in and you have a gun for a few hours for when you go to 001 or 018 for dinner, the theater, concerts the lakefront. Now this would be a money maker for renting the guns and think of all the people who stopped going downtown for fear of muggings, carjacking. It will bring back revenue to all these venues. It would give legit citizens and tourists a sporting chance.

To all you casual readers not married to a side on this fight, a little education is critical in this matter. The NRA is not your enemy, but a voice of reason and understanding in these troubled times. Make the effort to listen what they (we) are actually saying instead of the false narrative of the left and it's puppet press and politicians.

The universe was telling you not to bother. It probably saved your life. You would be wise to find an alternate mode of transportation. Bicycle riders trying to share the road with distracted or overwhelmed motor vehicle drivers in a densely populated urban environment with heavy traffic has meant an early demise for many a bicyclist.

Uh... a 'project' by an Advertising Agency and a Gun Control Group isn't exactly 'Art', now is it. It's an Advertisement that promotes a certain stance on Political Policy which is promoted by one political party, Democrats.

As such, does it belong on City owned property? Property that's owned by ALL taxpayers. So Where is the 'project' that supports an Opposing, Pro 2nd Amendment, View? One that shows point by point that the Brady 'display' is all lies.

And who in City Hall issued the Permit for this Political Ad of the Brady bunch? And who in City Hall approved it?

Any intrepid Chicago journalist want to look into this? Yeah...right (((crickets)))

Here is the real deal. These imbeciles target guns instead of targeting crime, criminals, drugs and gang members, all of who have been empowered by the POS POLITICIANS who refuse to enforce the laws and imprison the scumbags who plague the city, county, suburbs and state!

THESE PEOPLE ARE "USELESS GUTLESS GRANDSTANDERS" pushing their socialist propaganda in an effort to destroy "OUR" way of life in the USA. Punish the Criminals not the lawabiding citizens! You should all go to some shithole 3rd world country and see how that works for you!

This appeals to the pitifully ignorant (i.e. Democrats/Progressives) that actually think you can buy a gun and walk out in 5 minutes or less.

But the recently released DoJ/FBI report on Active Shooters tells a very different story. 50 Active Shooter incidents, 10 stopped by citizens. 18 page summary here.

You just might have a good idea there. Put gun rental desks in the airports.

Flying with a handgun can be such a hassle. TSA gets their panties in a bunch and hassles the owner. Or the gun is stolen. Or locally prohibited.

So one gets off the plane and after all other business is concluded, luggage, rental car,etc., one goes to the gun rental desk, shows his CCW permit, ID and credit card, a quick name check and your on your way. On returning the gun would be turned in first. No boarding pass until gun is returned.

A few beurocratic hurdles to get over, to be sure.

At first I thought the pic was an SCC joke. The vast majority of GSWs are from handguns. Rifle GSWs are a drop in the bucket, although increasing mainly in a few Hispanic gangs. The real art should be cook county jail where violent offenders spend less time inside than a divy bike spends in a rack. This city is a joke.

Last time I checked it was illegal to even buy an AR-15 or any "assault rifle" in Cook County, regardless of what paperwork you had. But this was done by the party of Barack "It's easier to buy a computer than a gun" Obama, apparently.

Like thug gun sharing is new?
What idiot, what unemployed activist, on a perpetual gubmint arts scholarship thunk this up?
It will not be long before one of Sanctuary ShitholeChicago’s feral will steal these art displays, rattle can them flat black and go about using them for street robberies.
And with a little good fortune, hopefully. get blasted by a CCW.

Couple days ago some fruit loop school called the police on a kid that made an rifle out of LEGO blocks.
Awhile back, a kid bit a handgun shape into his baloney sammich.
Another made a pistol hand gesture.
Every Lib is up in arms about “safe spaces” but goofs are allowed to mock the Constitutional Right on the public way.
Why isn’t anyone a’scared of the multitude of evil AR’s on display?
Go put that display up by Starbucks.

If there’s a point to be made for votes, there’s a clueless, thoughtless, illogical politician behind the movement.
The same idiots that think up this stuff become the same city officials that allow crime to flourish - and Attorney Generals.
It’s not the gun, it’s the unpunished violent feral.

You what art?
How about Thug-Sharing dispensers.
Why let the Thug just be allocated to the South and West sides?
Oh my, never mind that idea is already in the Section8’Arena pending bin.

So what’s next, free bikes for gun turn-ins?
We need a tax increase to fund that while you’re at it.

If that's the case - someone ought to go arrest those rancid communist fucks manning that illegal display, and let them have a taste of that which they spew upon the law-abiding people every day.

Again dumbass,

WE DIDN'T WRITE THAT. It's a quote from a linked article. If you want to believe in God, Vishnu, Buddha, Flying Purple People Eater, that's on you.

However, the Founders stated "...that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness…."

In other words, you are born with certain Rights, by whatever creationist theory you ascribe to - those Rights that cannot be denied. As we said, it's a pretty basic philosophical treatise covered in many writings dating back to ancient Greece and even further if you read long enough.

The author of that quoted text (whom we linked to) uses the word "God." You can argue with their choice of words, but unless you're some sort of Marxist lib-tarded Shrillary-supporting statist socialist scumbag (and it appears you are), these basic Rights are not granted by the Government.

So you're an anti-Constitutional. Glad you finally admitted it. And we also know you're heavily mentally handicapped if you can hold two dichotomous thoughts like "Russian troll" and "Brietbart." You are truly a model of numerous psychiatric disorders.

You know there's 200+ other countries in the world you can go to and have your Rights watered down and shit on while you kiss the government's ass.

And you are aware (or aren't you?) that the country fought a Civil War a few years back to apply those Rights to everyone? If you could locate any law on the books that specifically denies anyone black, brown, red (or yellow - we noticed you left out the Asians....are you racist?) their Rights, we'll send you a shiny new dime.

Go play in traffic moron child, and ask mommy if she's rinsed off your inflatable date for Saturday night fun times.
