    Chicago state reps: Bring in the National Guard



    Chicago state reps: Bring in the National Guard


    "As we speak, National Guard members are working side-by-side with our troops to fight a war halfway around the world," Fritchey said. "The unfortunate reality is that we have another war that is just as deadly taking place right in our backyard." While the National Guard has been deployed in other states to prevent violence related to specific events and protests, the Chicago legislators said they are unaware of guardsmen being deployed to assist with general urban unrest.
    Cute.

    Take away your citizen's rights to bare arms, then ask a branch of the US military to come defend them from the clusterfuck YOU created.

    Of course more government involvement is the answer. Chicago is only the most heavily gun-controlled city in the country and it STILL needs the National Guard, so clearly gun control works.

    Having to call in the military to defend the citizens you disarmed proves it.

    Technically, the National Guard isn't a branch of the U.S. military unless the President federalizes them. Prior to that, they're under control of the Governor.

    It's happened quite a few times throughout our history.

    Hell, the Navy was helping out in Katrina.

    Blackwater too :-O

    So what? Katrina was an abortion.
    That doesn't make it okay.

    And not to just simply come in and "protect" the law abiding citizens who can't own guns from non-law abiding citizens with guns.

    Fucking let the law abiding ones own guns. This is bullshit.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Alex Jones of the world see camouflage and instantly scream police state, but it's happened plenty of times throughout history and somehow our democracy has stood through it all. Remember the "Little Rock Nine?" The racist governor of Arksanas wanted nothing to do with Brown vs. Board of Education and decided it was a good idea to bring in the National Guard to keep the black kids from going to the formerly "whites only" school. How did President Eisenhower respond? He sent in the goddamn 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army to escort the kids to the school, then federalized the Arkansas National Guard as a giant "fuck you and there's not a damn thing you can do about it" to Governor Faubus. That was in the 1950s.

    I agre that Chicago peeps should be permitted to own guns, but that alone isn't the reason for this violence, and a surge in gun ownership isn't going to stop it.

    My only beef is due to the current Chicago gun laws.

    They created the situation and now they're offering the illusion of fixing it.

    I call hoax.

    And I disagree that it wouldn't fix the problem, and I do think it had A LOT to do with causing it.

    You can't be naive enough to think that gun ownership is the sole or leading reason that violence is through the roof. I own guns. I like guns. The problem in Chicago is simpler than just a lack of guns in the hands of the populace.

    For example, they have black people. Lots and lots of black people.

    I said has A LOT to do with the problem. Nothing is the sole reason for anything.
    And yes, I do believe it to be the leading reason for excessive violence and crime in the streets.

    You can't own a handgun in Chicago, you just plain can't. And fixing that little problem would go a very long way in terms of reducing crime.

    Even to the degree that you wouldn't need the fucking National Guard to help you.

    But since you're taking the time to enlighten me here, please point out where I'm wrong. What is it again that's causing all this violence and why do we need the National Guard instead of armed citizens to fix it?
