Rahmaland Murders Top Afgahn Death Toll

The death toll by murder in Chicago over the past decade is greater than the number of American soldiers who have died in Afghanistan since the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom, according to a police analysis reviewed by WND.

WND reports:

In a city with some of the toughest gun control laws in America, where a handgun cannot be purchased, Fox News reported that Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy “acknowledged aiming at assault weapons misses the mark when dealing with Chicago’s gang violence.” 
“The weapon used is generally a handgun, and rarely is it purchased through legal channels,” he said.
Bottom line: Gun control and gun registration programs are only coming after guns of law abiding citizens. In other words, guns that would be known and taken from the hands of law abiding citizens, if a totalitarian ever ruled America.


  1. The most interesting thing about all of this is that the whole concept of a "sporting purpose" clause aka "why do you need that," along with registration, licensing, FFLs, the government assuming people are guilty until they prove otherwise, etc - is that it is all based upon the 1968 Gun Control Act.

    The 1968 Gun Control Act is based largely upon the 1938 Nazi Germany law when it came to firearms. Senator Dodd in 68 asked the Library of Congress to translate from German the 38 Nazi Act, and then a few months after the translation the major principles of Nazi law were now American law.

    This book has the German and English translations, as well as the response from the Library of Congress to Senator Dodd informing him that they will translate the 1938 nazi gun law at his request.

    It is a fascinating book showing how just about all of the modern anti-gun arguments stem from actual Nazi law. Registration, licensing, assuming guilt of the purchaser who has to prove otherwise, dealers being licensed, permits, the sporting clause, etc.

    What is also interesting is how the Nazis didn't implement most of the gun stuff - it was already done for them by the democratic german government. All the Nazis had to do is refuse to renew permits and licenses once they took power for their political opponents, along with knowing every firearm owner in the nation. When permits and licenses expired, the Nazis then legally confiscated them all from those who were not in the Nazi party or affiliated groups.

    1. What really raises the hairs on the back of my neck is the fact that the Nazi takeover of Germany was LEGAL. They just slid into power with ease. They gave the people what they wanted: stability, security, and a sense of national purpose.
      Geez, sounds like Bill Kristol....

    2. Exactly. That is the point of the book. The Nazis took over legally and then used existing gun laws of registration and permits to then legally disarm and confiscate anyone who could fight against them. That is exactly why any efforts at universal background checks or registration can lead to a similar situation - not in the current government, but in a future one. The 1928 German laws passed before the Nazis took over about registration and licensing were ironically what allowed the Nazis to know who all owned guns in Germany and allowed them to confiscate all firearms.

  2. You mean hardened criminals willing to mow down people in cold blood wouldn't be dissuaded from obtaining a gun from yet another gun law? Who knew?

    The fact that something so obvious needs to be stated leads me to believe that gun-grabbers don't really care about self-evident facts. Their motivation is equally obvious. This has NOTHING to do with public safety. This is has always been about controlling the masses.

    1. Most people are just so simple minded and idiotic that they are easily controlled. They'll believe that up is down if some person in a government costume tells them so.

  3. One interesting thing is that despite all of the dubious media polling with a clear agenda, Gallup shows the american majority against a so called 'assault weapons ban.'

    Dec 19-22 in 2012 at the height of the media anti-gun hysteria and propaganda, 51% opposed with 44% in favor. What is interesting is gallup has tracked this for years, and they show that back in 1996 57% of the public supported the law with only 42% against. That is a swing from 15% in favor to 7% against in the span of 16 years - so clearly the anti gun types are afraid of this trend continuing. This story has largely gone uncovered, but the public has done a 180 on gun views, especially related to so called "assault weapons."
