Mayor Daley says "We're F*cked!!"

In order to keep his city safe (in lieu of the 12.7% rise in murders so far this year) he will fight all attempts to throw out Chicago's own (oh so successful) handgun ban.

The PSH would be amusing if it weren't so pathetic:

"We've shown time and time again how many children have been killed in their homes by guns," he said. "Parents are away, they get the gun. Parents are away, the child takes the gun, runs out in the street and has an argument, comes back and shoots somebody."

Of course this is happening in his city where handguns are banned.

But this bit of sweet irony just makes it all worth while:

"This decision really places those who are rich and those who are in power [to] always feel safe," Daley said. "Those who do not have the power do not feel safe, and that's what they're saying."

Coming from the man who has 24 hr security, I'm sure he doesn't see it.

Be sure and remind Mayor Daley that he can take some consolation in the fact that he has quite a bit of company right now.

When they call their gun ban laws successful, they are lying. Criminal empowerment laws is how they function, so I guess that from their anti-American, Marxist, destroy capitalism, bring down America perspective the laws really are successful. So if they're not lying, they're just really, really malicious.
