Ed Schultz: There’s No Gun Control In Chicago


Ed Schultz, who once touted himself as a “gun toting liberal” because of his fondness for hunting, has been one of the loudest advocates for gun control on MSNBC because he’s a media whore who says what he’s paid to say.

But you’d think even an erstwhile “gun toting liberal” would know that Chicago is kinda, sorta ground zero for gun control. I mean, he can’t possibly be this dumb, can he?

The gun laws and the gun violence in Chicago is a helluva lot different than it is in New York City. There’s two different worlds when it comes to gun violence, it’s not even close. New York City is not, you know, an all-safe zone or what not, I’m not trying to make that case. But a city that has got strict, the strictest gun laws in America put forth by Mayor Bloomberg, versus the gun laws that apparently don’t even exist in Chicago, you’ve got two totally different numbers when it comes to lives lost.

Chicago, of course, is an inconvenient truth for the gun control crowd. Not only does Chicago have some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation (one of the two landmark decisions handed down by the Supreme Court affirming the 2nd amendment as an individual right to keep and bear arms originated as a challenge to Chicago’s gun ban), but Chicago has an awful record on gun crime.

Chicago, to put it simply, is proof positive that gun control doesn’t really work very well as a policy to address crime.

Unless your Ed Schultz, and then you just invent your own version of reality.

    What we have here is a media frenzy. The American people are armed and dangerous to the liberal elites. That makes US targets for new laws trying to find a way around the Bill of Rights.

    Stay strong, stand together and these lefty cowards will come down from the high they’re on after The One’s reelection.

    Schultz needs to climb on any bandwagon in order to get viewers. We’re not dealing with a thinker here.

  • slackwarerobert

    In ed’s defense, there are no laws in chicago to get a gun. So he is sorta right. You need to remember that is the city where the cops kill their ex’s rather than mess with divorce. If the wives could shoot back they would run out of cops and the gang bangers would run wild….. I mean city hall would join the gang banger running wild.
    Guess ed didn’t interview the central park jogger to ask her how that peaceful city on the hill is. Funny,he has no problem with the blacks being illegally searched on the streets of new yourk for no cause.

    Law abiding people are under complete control, the high death rate is criminals that do not care what the law says, they are completely out of the control of Chicago government.
