These numbers are well above those for the 2011-2012 school year, in which 319 Chicago students were wounded and another 24 were killed.
And yet, it has long been reported that the school where Rahm's children attend to their education has an armed security guard. Additionally, his children also have an armed escort to get them to and from school, just like those Hollywood celebrities who clamor for gun control while they enjoy full-time, armed bodyguards. And yet, the citizen gun control puppets continue to lap up the "wisdom" of their Masters and spew their hyper-emotional pleas to be controlled and enslaved.
Oh - and what appeared in the Chicago Tribune just a few days ago? An article by Laura Washington, written in the usual Oprahified manner, stating that gun control would be the best present ever for those of us who lack Chicago's glorious standards for paradise. In fact, Miss Laura openly calls for totalitarian decrees on the part of the Napoleonic branch of government:
Obama can do more. He can issue executive orders that will bypass the congressional sausage makers. He can deploy his White House bully pulpit to back similar state and local efforts.
If we don’t take action for the little angels of Sandy Hook, now, America will be forever haunted by the demons of gun violence.
In addition, Miss Laura also states that:
During the 2012 campaign, he avoided confrontations on gun control. When Obama was asked about gun control at a presidential debate, he punted. He was terrified of the People of the Gun, particularly in election swing states like Pennsylvania and Virginia.
People of the Gun? How cutesy. Actually, Obama and Rahm Emanuel both quickly realized, upon Obamanual's first election, that they could not win the federal battle for gun control because so many states of free and law-abiding peoples are still heroically immersed in a gun culture, unlike their murder city. Like all of us, politicians pick their battles, and after Obamanual realized this battle could not be won, Emanuel separated from Obama and took his schemes back to the city that gave us both of these megalomaniac buffoons. Sorry Chicago, better that you have Rahm all to yourselves rather than the rest of us.
Chicago, feel free to revel in your gun control authoritarianism and ignore your city's violence, murder, bloodshed, and perpetual terror, but you aren't going to import your political enslavement and perverted twist of logic to the rest of us anytime soon. Follow me on Twitter @karendecoster.
