Chicago Pre-Christmas Rush to Kill Tells Us All We Need to Know about ‘Gun Control’

Because nothing says “Stop the violence” like a clenched fist, and “Snuffy” and David Hogg are birds of a feather. (Father Michael Pfleger / Facebook)
Because nothing says “Stop the violence” like a clenched fist, and “Snuffy” and David Hogg are birds of a feather. (Father Michael Pfleger / Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)-“At least five people were killed and 33 others were wounded in Chicago shootings the weekend before Christmas in a sharp spike of gun violence compared to earlier this month,” the Chicago Tribune reports. “The toll was more than double last weekend’s, when 16 people were shot, 2 of them fatally.”

“We can’t normalize this kind of behavior and tragedy in this city,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared. “Solving disputes with a gun is never the right answer.”

You’re a little late, Lori. If there’s one thing that’s “normalized” in the Windy City, it’s feral thugs upping the death toll on a regular basis. And as for the right answer, as with the parallel about war, that depends on the question.

Chicago Police use guns to “solve disputes” all the time. So do peaceable citizens, no thanks to the Chicago Democrat political establishment and its enforcers.

And naturally, we see this attitude once more from clerical collectivist Father Michael “Snuffy” Pfleger, who I gave that appellation to after he ginned up a mob and calling on them to “snuff out” a gun store owner who, based on being in continuous business, was constantly proving to state and federal regulators his compliance with the rules and laws.

Speaking of which, let’s consider the moral defectives committing the pejoratively designated “gun violence.” How many of the murderers do you suppose submitted to a prior restraint “universal background” check? How many have Illinois-required prior restraint FOID cards? How many have been issued prior restraint carry permits?

Since Pfleger threatens that NRA “will pay for the murder of our children,” and since, as a Life Member (whose objections are with management) I agree with the slogan “I’m the NRA,” it’s fair to ask how many of those murderers are NRA members. For that matter, it’s also fair to ask what he means by “children,” and to see how many of those are the ones pulling triggers.

As for Snuffy, a recent Facebook post has him shaking his damn head (his acronym, not mine) about “GUN MADNESS” over “13 People Shot at a Home in Englewood…they were gathered to remember someone else who was Killed.”

So it's the guns that are mad? And the “gun law” that would have stopped that is…? Surely, he or one of the hundreds of supportive comment posters could offer something? Besides demanding everything by illegally closing down the freeway and unlawfully impeding everyone's rights in a group temper tantrum? Besides demanding the “law-abiding” abide by citizen disarmament edicts the problem causers, many no doubt related to Pfleger's congregants, will ignore?

As an aside, you’ll note the Snuffster didn‘t have much to say about reports of his criminally-armed “bodyguard” – except to deny him.

At the start of this year, I wrote about a crooked Chicago alderman (talk about a redundancy!) who was fine with guns – as long as they were his. The close of that piece fits here as well:

The line at the end of the neo-noir classic movie “Chinatown” comes to mind, one that sums up the futility of trying to get justice from a system that is irredeemably criminal. I’ve adapted it for my blog, The War on Guns, and use it regularly when I come across stories about senseless Chicago corruption being exploited to demand we give up our guns:

“Forget it, Jake. It’s Chi-Town.”

Ironically, the Englewood shooting happened at a memorial for an armed thug who was shot and killed by a legally armed citizen during a carjacking. Go figure!

HoggBoyy is a lot like the kinyun former pres…… their past is clouded in mystery, silence, and “dont go there” tactics. Seems HoggBoyy had attended some post-secondary school in Soughern California prior to his claim of being a “victim of the Parkland School Shooting as he was a few miles away riding his bicycle at the time of the “incident”. Both his immediate forbears are/were FBI empolyees of various sorts. We know little about his past…. but Bloomie’s Bux are a great eraser as well as promoter. Push the “new script” hard, fast, continuously, keep putting the “shush, now”, on… Read more »

“13 People Shot at a Home in Englewood…they were gathered to remember someone else who was Killed.”

The “someone else” was killed by a legally armed citizen while the “someone else” was committing a carjacking. They always leave that part out.

Yeah, a couple of days ago I wrote a piece which Ammoland chose to not publish about how Fox News had reported at least three times on air that day about how the “memorial service” was being held for a “victim of gun violence” that had taken place earlier in the year. Of course that happened on 4-26-19 at 3:15 AM when said “victim” attempted to carjack a BMW from its owner. When he forced the owner back into the BMW the owner got his own gun and shot the carjacker in the head killing him. No charges were filed… Read more »

so on the surface it would appear that the party job was perhaps by someone who figured that, since the party was to commemorate the life and end of life of the criminal who attempted to steal the Beemer, the vast majority of the attendees would likely haev known, and approved of, the “life choices” of the erstwhile perpetrator and thus be deserving of being eliminated on the basis of their complicity. A sort of wholesale “taking out the trash” move. Still not right, its likely better to go on the assumption that at least some of the partygoers may… Read more »

Isn’t it something, unarmed people that have people with arms and use them to defend their lives are demanding people with arms / Govt to disarm innocent Americans with their arms. This is a Fascist Police State Thuggery.

Will never comply..

@UT, you have, also, made a good point, that they have to get the government to do the disarming for them.

Pfleger and Hogg, a match made in… well, definitely not heaven. I wish that I lived close enough to patronize Chuck’s Gun Shop in Riverdale. I’d especially like to go when Pfleger and his ilk are protesting out front.

“Leaders like Mayor Lori Lightfoot use the term “gun violence” as part of the democrat flimflam because it narrows the focus to fit the objective. The objective of course is to disarm the American public. Think about it. Have you ever heard the term “gun gentleness” used by a politician or anyone else? No? Then ask yourself why the democrat party doesn’t focus on just violence instead of gun violence. Fact is they’re after guns, not violence. They couldn’t care less about the entire field of violence because it commingles criminals with peaceable, lawful citizens and deflects the focus from… Read more »

Hmmmm.. I must hve a whole locker full of defective guns. NOT ONE OF THEM has ever harmed anything except dead mushed up trees with squid squeeze on it, or old TeeVee tubes, a few wine/beer bottles, an endless string of empty pop cans, and a few stale bagels floating on a small pond. And perhaps half a dozen feral cats that had beem meking life hell around here for months. Oh, I almost forgot, that old coon that had been getting after my friend’s ducks.
NONE of them has ever harmd human of any sort

Just make note of their treasonous names, the day IS coming when treason and tyranny ARE going to be dealt with, hopefully in the courts. That being said, I would not be surprised when citizens have had enough and settle out of court if the courts either don’t do their job or take too long to do it. You can only operate in tyranny and treason for so long before the people have had enough. The left’s goals have been plainly, publically said; their goal is to disarm the American citizenry. Too bad they did not listed to the WORD,… Read more »

@Felixd – Thanks for that. From heyjackass.com – it looks like the city could use some ranges and instructors. So many “selfies”, “shot in the ass”, and “shot in the junk” cases – along with fatality rate below 10% for those hit. Have to guess that there are far more shot at and missed entirely… Maybe those who learn to shoot will also learn respect for both life and themselves.
11% closure rate for homicides? Sounds like the entire force needs to be fired! Anyone in any other line of business with success rates like that certainly would be unemployed.

If the two of them are so against guns then they should personally disarm the gang bangers.

Young black girls learned they could get pregnant at 14, 15 or so and they would not have to finish that ‘oh, so very difficult’ school work nor work for a living. As all taxpaying Americans MUST, at the point of a federal gun, support these single-mother sluts for 18 years per bastard child, our tax dollars are used to change the face of the United States with mindless ghetto/welfare trash. Talk to one. See if you can carry on a cogent conversation with the slut or its spawn. I dare you to get one to speak a complete sentence.… Read more »
