dr-shotgun: The Vice video about Chicago, called Chiraq, should be required watching for every American:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7q3tokn4ew&feature=player_embedded

Where Vice gets it wrong is that Chicago's violence isn't driven by normal people getting their hands on guns and turning into maniacs. Chicago's violence is the product of decades long lack of real cultural leadership, economic advancement and the allowance of base ignorance to fester into a war zone.


That was really good, thank you.
The hipster looked so nervous the whole time.
That cop at the beginning, did he really say "if it's colored it's gang"?

Senseless_drivel: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Clearly a failure to regulate the militia.

Its time to repeal the second amendment and put something more relavent in its place. It is, after all, an amendment to our Constitution which is supposed to be a living document.


How about this: The right of the people, both individually and collectively, to defend themselves with deadly force against illegal use of deadly force, shall not be infringed by any level of government, federal, state or local.

It is served with honey on the side for eating with the crust.


Where in Colorado did you find that?

The Rockies are my ancestral home, and I love my state dearly, but we don't do ethnic food.  Fry bread and rocky mountain oysters is as exotic as we can manage without offending the original recipe.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: Interesting that Chicago crime is of national interest all of a sudden. Sure, our murder rate isn't even in the top 10 in the nation, but hey, the LIBRUL president is from here and he is brown, so...



It's important for Libs to constantly point out that Obama is black.  Nobody cares, nobody else mentions it, and it has nothing to do with anything.  But if you bring that up, you can avoid discussing the myriad failed policies.

"Gun control doesn't work?  Well the President is black!"
"Keynsian economics doesn't work?  Well the President is black!"
"Foreign policy is an incoherent muddle?  Well the President is black!"

If you Libs could treat a black man just the same as a white, you wouldn't even have nominated him for re-election.

20 miles north or 20 miles south? Because east to west, 100% of the city is within 20 miles of Lake Michigan.

The right of the people to keep and bear arms is a clause dependent on them being part of a well-regulated militia, which is recognized as vital to keeping the United States from being annexed by another country.  In other words:  the Federal government is permitted by its citizens to keep a standing army to defend the nation, and in order to do so the members of that army must be allowed to have weapons.

Personal defense outside (and in) the home is not something that government should try to regulate completely away. Chicago (and, in too many cases, the UK) is a clear example of where this is a failure. Any preservation of "militia" must take into account that the people need protection _from_ the government (see Jefferson ad nauseum). Protection from corrupt government is a founding principle of this country.

Being over 45 makes you more at risk from violent thugs, not less, so deadly force is an equalizer that must not be denied to the law-abiding.

Currently, in most jurisdictions, any resistance of illegal use of police power is considered a crime. This is insane. Too many loved ones (including pets) have died as a result. I don't have a solution, but this is a clear problem that won't go away.
