I hope gun manufacturers reciprocate and stop all sales of guns, parts, and accessories to Chicago public authorities and any suppliers willing to sell to them. Perhaps that may shed some light on the Mayor's hipocracy. It appears that Mayor Emanual believes Chicago should distance itself from gun manufacturers.

Guns are only a tool. The real blame should be on Hollywood and game manufacturers who have glorified violence and the teachers who medicate their students to male their job is much easier. Oh wait, those are the folks supporting marxists like Rahm and Obama. Rahm and his ilk want us all to be unarmed peasants. Guns are only a tool.

Prosecutors had argued at trial that the boy, now 12, knew what he was doing when he shot 32-year-old Jeff Hall — a regional leader of the National Socialist Movement — and the slaying was premeditated. Defense attorney Matthew Hardy countered that his client grew up in an abusive and violent environment and learned it was acceptable to kill people who were a threat. Hardy contended the boy thought if he shot his dad, the violence would end.

Too bad they can't explain why the murder rate from guns is higher in Chicago than it is in Afghanistan. Another hostile gesture toward the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment.

Go ahead and put them funds into a Solar Energy Company like Solyndra.

Let's avoid a discussion concerning what entitlement mentality has done for the African American pop. in Chicago such as undermining the very core values and standards of people resulting in 70% school dropout rates, single motherhood as an occupation, gang affiliation, drug/alcohol abuse and violence/murder committed with the use of illegal guns.
