Here’s a shocker: Homicide rate surging for black Chicagoans, report finds – “From 2005 to 2015, the city went from 17.3 homicides per 100,000 residents to a rate of about 18.8, according to a report from the Injury Prevention and Research Center at the Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. But the report held particularly troubling news for African-Americans. The rate for blacks in Chicago jumped from 36.1 homicides per 100,000 residents in 2005 to 46.5 a decade later. Other studies have shown steep drops in the city’s African-American population in recent years, but crime figures remain stubbornly high in many largely black neighborhoods.” Is it any wonder blacks who can get out of Chiraq are doing so?
We love us some Henry rifles. The lever gun impresarios at Henry recently launched Henry TV on YouTube, signing up 22Plinkster as their host.
Henry’s social media manager told us, “For many years now I have enjoyed watching firearms content on YouTube, so we decided to step into the ring with our own channel. With the help of 22Plinkster we think we’ll be able to do things a bit differently and provide super high quality, useful content that people will actually enjoy watching. Henry TV is a venture we’re all very excited about growing into something special, and something that stands out as a prime example of how a firearms company can run a YouTube channel without it being just a bunch of commercials.” Check it out.
This from the woman who assured us she handed over all her emails – Hillary Tells DNC: ‘I’m Not Here to Take Away Your Guns’ – “During her July 28 speech to the DNC, Hillary Clinton said, ‘I’m not here to take away your guns’ and ‘I’m not here to repeal the 2nd Amendment.’ She has spent the last few months of her campaign trying to refute claims that she will do both if elected.” Pissing on your leg and telling you it’s raining.
And in keeping with that theme… ATF Head: Our job is not to take away people’s guns – “In his first television interview, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Deputy Director, Head Thomas Brandon tells CBS’ ‘Sunday Morning’ that the agency’s job is not to take away firearms from people, but to regulate weapons that can be misused. ” It’s almost as if there’s a concerted effort to convince Americans they have nothing to worry about 2A-wise.
Tamron Hall Investigates Guns On Campus – “In a country with a history of more than 270 school shootings, will putting more guns in the hands of students and faculty prevent bloodshed, or be the cause of further death and injury? Is there common ground which might provide a path forward towards school safety or will ideological opposition prevent progress? I am eager to probe all of these questions and more to help provide some context – historical, legislative and personal – to this multi-faceted debate.” Fortunately, she’s an MSNBC anchor so, you know, fair and balanced.
