“If you do not have a safe city, you do not have a city. We remember those babies in Connecticut and the people who were shot in the Batman movie. At an annual meeting, it would be derelict on our part if we did not call attention to the need for Congress to take action.” Tom Cochran in Nation’s Mayors Meet in Vegas Amid Gun Debate [at abcnews.go.com]

  1. Does that mean Chicago is not a city? More people are shot each month here than at both of those tragedies combined.

    • More than ten times as many. A call FOR WHAT SORT OF ACTION, exactly? To come and confiscate our guns?

      Why not just demand BLOODY CIVIL WAR instead? They’re not smart enough to know it’s the same thing?

      Only the folks they dupe are that stupid.

    • Given the number of crooks already on the MAIG list, why would we be surprised?

      Given that many cities are in a boat load of debt, my question is how can they all afford a trip to Vegas?

      And one more…why do they need congress to clean up their own backyard? When they have concerted police effort they are able to get the job done.

      • How about: Why do the people in these cities elect these idiots? People in Baltimore just keep on voting for people like Rawlings-Blake who use the public trough as their own personal bank account while they vacation with lobbyists.

        • Because those people want a mother and a father to tend to their every need so they can play games all day.

      • It’s in the charter: “There is ALWAYS money for a junket to Vegas.”

        Even small- town mayors take $30,000 junkets to “official gummint bidness” confabs. Sad but true. If confronted, it’s “that only cost you $3.81; what’s the problem?”

  2. Why do they keep referring to the children at Sandy Hook as “babies”? Oh wait…I know…emotion.

  3. “If you do not have a safe city, you do not have a city.” No wonder Bloomberg and tiny dancer aren’t scheduled to attend. There’s that. Not to mention they’re both well enough off that a Vegas junket on the taxpayer’s teat isn’t as much of a reward for a few days of their time as it is for the big parasitic frogs of smaller ponds.

  4. “…and I have created a copy of myself, one half half my size. I’ll call him…’Mini-me’, Tom says glancing over his left shoulder at the thinner bespectacled puppy-like man beside him.

    Does everyone in Washington even look alike. Can you tell whose staffers are whose by looking at them?

    • I thought it was his son and heir apparent…you know how these ingrained political families work. In fact, I heard a rumor recently that Dick Daley’s younger brother William is considering a run at Rahm in Chicago.

  5. It must be a real skill to turn off the rational portion of your brain and entirely ignore the positive effects firearms have throughout the country and only focus on a few horrific events. Then after these events, proceed full steam ahead on trying to pass laws that will have zero effect on the crimes that happened, but pushing for them anyway while screaming that these will solve all of our problems.

    If a dog bites a kid, we don’t go beat the cat.

    • “If a dog bites a kid, we don’t go beat the cat.” No, what they’re trying to do is pull all the other dogs’ teeth out.

  6. “If you do not have a safe city, you do not have a city.”

    If only it was that easy to get rid of Chicago, Detroit, Camden, Cleveland . . . .

    • We have to keep Detroit because it’s the blueprint for what they intend to do to America. And Chicago is the model for government corruption. Do you have something against long-range planning, boy?

  7. Fat Boy in the picture has had thousands of steak dinners and thousands of bottles of expensive wine and thousands of fancy desserts on taxpayer dollars. Epitome of a professional leach.
