This isn't popping up because it's pro-gun.. it's popping up because the judgement was leveled on the 15th and the city paid out it's highest fine in history. Do you people even read before spewing this cr@p?

Based on statistics pre strict gun control and post strict gun control crime remains the same.

Maybe instead of blaming guns we can blame people and work on those aspects of society and culture that riddles the inner cities.

Its a psychology issue not a gun issue.
Completely agree. I have also looked at gun violence as not the problem, but the RESULT to a series of problems.

btw..might want to edit the statistic comment. It goes against some of the more members of the forum belief.

Article title: Chicago pays $22.5 MILLION to woman who was gang raped and plummeted from seventh story window after police failed to take proper care of her

Chase's title: If Only Chicago Had Stricter Gun Laws : Woman Gang Raped & Thrown Out 7 Story Window

Hmm....sounds like Chase is trying to push a view point.

Because the media rarely does, it makes for poor TV. "Today on Channel 11 news, a crime that didn't happen" is not going to get ratings. Exploiting a school shooting for 2 weeks sure does though. Someone has to share the truth.

Liberals don't like the truth presented.

Liberals turn attention to the poster.

eh, doesn't matter if you're a republican, moderate, or democrat. If you disagree with Chase, you're automatically a leftist of the left liberal.

Correction.. They gang up on anyone posting from a conservative stance. In this case, it happens to be pro-guns that has them all riled up. The fact that its black on white crime just has them in overdrive.

And if you payed attention, those that you label "libs" such as member badfast and myself are not anti-gun.
