Barfmaker: On Sunday, almost 200 people took to the streets of Chicago in an anti-violence rally

Impressive.


I live in Chicago - these rallies are a joke - a bunch of (mostly if not all black) church members and activists walking in a circle wearing signs that say "Don't Kill People" (essentially). The other thing they're doing here is campaigns against silence - you know, BE a snitch. Like the gang mentality is suddenly going to do a turnaround.

I'm sure that'll turn around some gang-banging blackie to a life of obedience.

There's only one thing that will work: Round up anyone in a gang (this will net you 95% blacks and 4.999% hispanics...0.001% whites), no matter how young, line them up against a wall and shoot them all down. Period. No matter whether they've picked up a gun or not. And do this immediately - no warning, no delays, no "due process" which is a joke anyway. Preemptively.

If I sound racist then I welcome all you dumb f*cks to come to Chi-town. Listen to the news and log the murders....99.9% black. F*ck "politically correct" - I call 'em by the numbers - my conclusions are 100% empirically based. The black communities are to be avoided - this would be your Englewood, your Humboldt Park, etc.

I'm not sure there exists anything such as a "black parent" - only "black breeders" - obvious by the behavior of their taint-stains they call children. Hell, if we took the guns and knives away, they'd probably be throwing feces at each other.

I equally despise the white trash that gets involved in this s*it, but....at least around here they're few and far between (in the news, at least).

Kit Fister: umad: Huck Chaser: Fark It: That's your choice, you don't get to make that for other people.

You're right, but I do get to vote for people who do get to make that choice.

Then enjoy strengthening the Republican party by making their one true wedge issue relevant. People keep voting for them because they don't trust people like you. Want the Republicans to go away? Then STFU about guns.

We all agree that violent crime of all flavors is bad, we recognize it's bad, and we have a variety of means of fixing the problem.

How come we can't get together, stop blaming guns, booze, pussy, porn, etc. for human behavior and instead learn to combat the causes of the behavior, and make our society better?

You don't like guns? Fine. Don't use 'em. Don't buy 'em. I don't like booze, but I equally don't vote for laws to ban it. I just don't drink.

If we as a society spent even half the time and money on education and prevention instead of chasing after the devil drugs, the grotesque guns, and the other objects of animosity, we'dd probably have a society were I didn't need to protect myself and wouldn't have to worry about psychos and drunk drivers.

But, I guess it's more sexy to say you banned something.

Also, what gives people the right to dictate to others what is and isn't right/good/justified? Do I get to pick something you like and belittle you for it while publically calling for it to be banned?

How about we ban video games since they only encourage antisocial behavior, promote sloth and obesity, and have no other purpose than to dull our minds and further erode the morals of our society with violent fantasy material and smut?

See what im driving at?


How can one post on Fark and not like booze? Do you think Duke doesn't suck? WHERE DOES IT END?!

Wait do people actually *not* carry in Chicago? I'm an otherwise law abiding citizen but any time I got to Chicago I sure as hell make sure I'm packing something sturdy. It's concealed, and if I need it then I really won't be too concerned about a jury trial at that point.

marsgwar: Build a wall around all the bad neighborhoods that is extremely high. Then fill it with water. Let everyone out and provide housing for them.

Anyone caught with an illegal gun or breaking other laws while using the gun gets put in the walled neighborhoods with a .45. We provide all the necessary supplies such as water, electricity, food, etc.

There will be no drug dealing outside the walls. If you are a drug fiend, you must go inside the wall to get your drugs. Drug users' will not be placed inside the walls but drug dealers will. Drug dealers get a .45 and bullet resistant vest. They only way to get out is to bring the head of somebody else with you. Any drug user who enters will be given an M4 and an option to bring back a head for a one month supply of drugs. There will be a limit of 12 per year.

Anybody committing felonies without the use of the firearm and not directly related to drugs will be placed in a normal prison. If the crime is related to drugs you will be placed in the neighborhoods, but with body armor and an M4. If you manage to stay alive for a year you can leave, or you can leave early with a head.

Gangs will have the opportunity to make money inside the neighborhoods, but can only purchase more ammunition and approved amenities.

Anybody caught escaping will have to run the gauntlet. There will be one long corridor with people 50 yards out on either side. Said ex-escapee will run down the middle. All shooters will have .45s. If a shooter manages to hit the runner, the shooter gets to leave. If the shooter manages to hit another shooter 100 yards away, that shooter gets to leave.

The gauntlet is also reserved for people who commit especially heinous gun related crimes such as mass shootings, killing children, etc. That person will be required to run the gauntlet when he first arrives. If he survives, he is given a .45, but cannot leave for a period of 30 years regardless of the number of heads he gets.

Money can be given to the people in the neighborhoo ..

Imagine how many they could kill, if they did not hold the gun sideways.

Money can be given to the people in the neighborhoods by family, but only under special rules. 10% will automatically go to the budget of the neighborhoods.

That will solve it. Just ban crime. Like we did with alcohol. We banned it, and now nobody even knows what alcohol is.

LaughingRadish:
I would think that such behavior would encourage the stupid to try to break in when they think you're not around to steal some of that stuff.


Well, there were a few things that prevented that. First, they were home the day my gunsafes were delivered. The truck blocked the entire street, and they needed hydraulics to get them into the house. Secondly, they thought I was crazy enough to boobytrap the house. Thirdly, they knew that if something like that happened, not only would the local, State, and Federal cops be all over them, but both I and my wife would come for them, too. And honestly? I think they feared my wife more than they did me.

Huck Chaser: Secret Master of All Flatulence: Huck Chaser:
The people being killed in Chicago are, with very VERY few exceptions, gang members themselves, and therefore are probably armed already anyway.

Unfortunately, we don't keep gangmembers in very small geographic areas where only other gangmembers live. They operate in areas that have innocent civilians living there too. They should be able to defend themselves from the criminal scum.

You're absolutely right, of course. However, the scenario I always imagine is...

Two gang members are surrounded by a small crowd of civilians. The gang members pull guns and start firing at each other. You then have two options:

1) The civilians run for cover.
2) Some percentage of the civilians pull their own (legal) weapons.

The only way option 2 is better than 1 is if BOTH a) the civilian shooters are somehow magically able to instantly tell who the gang members are and who their fellow civilians are, and b) shoot the gang members with 100% accuracy.


The gang members are the ones whos pants are falling down and hold their guns sideways.

Dimensio: A subsequent failure of predictions of concealed weapons permit holders committing any statistically significant amount of violent crime may finally convince lawmakers that impeding legal firearm ownership is not a viable means to address violent crime and thus they may pursue measures of combating crime that are actually effective.

serial_crusher: Timmy the Tumor: Yeah, because all of the 400 homicides so far this year involved guns--guns owned by registered owners.

"Wanting to reduce homicides" does not equal "gun control ideas" subs.

Yeah, but you can't get a good politics thread by saying things that are true and make sense.

They should just ban abortion. Perhaps the renewed value for human life and personal accountability will spread to other aspects of people's behavior as well.


Did you just make a case for trickle down morality?
