NBC: Chicago Gun Restrictions Ineffective Because of Gun Rights Elsewhere

By Kyle Drennen from NewsBusters

In a report at the top of Thursday’s NBC Nightly News, correspondent Kevin Tibbles fretted that “Despite bylaws that prohibit gun shops within city limits…Chicago appears to be awash in guns.” A sentiment that echoed ABC World News anchor Diane Sawyer, who on Wednesday announced to viewers that the whole nation was “awash in guns.”

The declaration from Tibbles teed up gun control advocate and UCLA law professor Adam Winkler to claim that problem with Chicago’s gun restrictions was that they were not universal.

    Yeah and the forks in the silverware drawer make the people there fat.

    Wall Chicago off, give them all the drugs, booze and guns they want then come back in a few months with a bulldozer and clean the place up.

    back in the ’60s, it was Communism works, but the whole planet has to be Communist. Capitalism is the only thing stopping Communism from working. So I’m not suprised that they’ll say Gun Control only works if every town has Gun Control. Same litany from the same mentally ill.

    Socialists don’t believe in personal responsibility because they have no concept of the individual. Only the hive and social groups exist for them – no ‘humans’ as non-slaves understand the term. They demand that everyone not just participate in their sick, demented worldview, but that everyone embrace it. For the socialist, to believe in “Liberty,” as properly understood, is madness, a neurosis bordering on psychosis, depending upon to what “extreme” one will go to ensure his freedom.

    This is principally why they cock their heads like a dachshund hearing a harmonica whenever someone tries to use facts with them.

    Your right Diane. The whole nation is “awash in guns.” That is why you are a news anchor and not hoeing a vegetable garden in a concentration camp.

    Chicago has the strictest gun laws in the country.

    Those laws are not applied to the entire country.

    As a result, Chicago has the highest homicide rate in the country.

    Reads like a Monty Python skit.

    Great comment from the article:

    if gun control works the way you think it does, professor, why are those areas that the guns are flowing into Chicago from, less prone to gun violence than Chicago? Shouldn’t they be more prone since the guns don’t have to flow into them from anywhere.

    Drugs are illegal everywhere, yet they seem to get to the people who want them, so why would gun bans be any different? 
Libs are so full of stupid it’s amazing they can even feed themselves.
    Oh wait, food stamps.

    Yep, the US is ‘awash in guns’.

    Why, there isn’t a day that goes by that I’m tripping over the damn things. They’re everywhere!

    Maybe someone ought to start a gun shelter & get these things off the streets. Have people adopt them, or something. Start a ‘GunCo’ store where people could bring them in for grooming and such.

    Yes,Tevin Kibbles, and NYC is awash in 32 oz. soft drinks from Joisey. Better set up checkpoints at all the bridges and ferry terminals. What you Leftists seek is oblasts inztead of states.

    “Oblasts”…that word just made somebody’s big ears perk up.
