I recently blogged the Chicago machine’s attempts to maintain Cook County as a “gun free” zone. TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia are well aware that Windy City politicians’ ongoing efforts to keep law-abiding citizens disarmed is part and parcel of their perfidious policies and criminal corruption. In the “debate” over concealed carry, both pro and anti cite the city’s sky-high homicide rate. Last year, Chicago was home to 500 homicides. This year is set to outpace last. Here’s what doesn’t get a look-in: all the other crimes enabled by Chicago Democrats’ love of civilian disarmament. The image above [via the Chicago Tribune’s most excellent interactive crime stats widget] represents one month’s worth of crime data for Englewood and surrounding neighborhoods. Time to tool-up, no matter what the crooks say, or how many times local ignorami vote them into office.
