Chicago Mayor Daley Blames Fort Hood On America’s Love Of Guns!

November 10, 2009

On Monday, Chicago Mayor Daley blamed the Ft. Hood Jihad Massacre on America’s love of guns!

With no pogrom backlash after 9/11, no pogrom backlash after Bali, no pogrom backlash after Madrid, no pogrom backlash after London, no pogrom backlash after Mumbai, no backlash after countless other Jihad attacks, why would there be any reason to believe the reaction would be any different in this case? As we have written before, the West has already passed this particular civility test.

The Mayor is using a straw-man argument that conveniently provides him with an opportunity to politicize the terrorist attack as part and parcel with America’s love of guns.

Mayor Daley, and other politicians, like to blame gun violence on the guns themselves because that is so much easier than admitting any inconvenient truths which might be revealed if they were to place blame where it belongs.

Kids murdering each other in the inner city? That’s because of guns, not the War On Drugs which turns poor children into black market drug distributing gang members.

Islamists murdering people while shouting Allah Akbar? That’s because of guns, not the Jihad being perpetrated globally against all so called “infidels”.

They blame the guns because guns don’t vote.

lastly, is Mayor Daley seriously arguing for increased gun control on a military base? If there had been more guns around, this ticking Jihad bomb could have been put down a lot faster than he was.

    They blame the guns because its in the Karl Marx Communist Manifesto talking points memo.

    Wait. So basically in this mans mind, because my dad owns several rifles, a hand gun [hunting or a flare not sure] and a bow, he’s a terrorist in the making? Or responsible for violence? And that I, myself have owned a rifle [for hunting, like my father], that I too, support vile evil that happens to use guns for the insanities of evil?

    I’m sorry but before I even was allowed to hold a gun, I was told the most important rule for them. Do NOT point at anything unless you intend to shoot to kill.

    The second most important rule was ofc, ‘Always treat the gun as if it is loaded’, even if safety is on.

    I am a law abiding citizen, I have weapons in my house. I do not go around gunning down people, no matter their race or creed. Just because I love guns- the bigger and louder the better, does not mean I am an ignorant little blockhead who is going to go off and shoot innocent people.

    God.

    The man is a moral idiot seriously lacking in logical thought.

    Oh, wait… Chicago politician. Okay, then that seems about right.

    The man condemns guns because of a hate-filled jihadist’s murderous rampage, but does he praise the gun that stopped him?

    A gun is a tool. The good or evil behind the gun determines the outcome.

    Shall we outlaw matches because of arsonists?

  4. Bruce on November 10, 2009 at 10:23 am

    Wait a minute… Does not Daily himself have a pristine historic gun collection in his house? How about his security guards, are THEY not armed? The Police, No guns??? I lived in Chicago as a kid. We had guns. Crime was lower… Why is it they want MY and YOUR guns yet gangs and the likes have whatever they like. I am sick and tired of the BS. Just look at the countries that HAVE banned guns… Are you looking??

    What a piece of work this Shortshanks is. HE has an armed guard accompanying him and his family 24-7, no matter if they are in the city, out of the state or out of the country. Meanwhile, Chicago residents are forbidden by law from owning handguns, while criminals run wild and free in the streets. Over 2 dozen people were shot in Chicago this weekend, while a firefighter was arrested for using a gun to defend against a break in.

    There you go, the problem is our outdated form of government and its sacred document.. it’s Constitution, this are supposedly outmoded and dangerous laws when people are no longer self-restrained by conscience. To solve this problem we must reach a consensus to wean ourselves out of a primitive way of governing and embrace total government security.

    Mayor Daley – you are an idiot.

    More guns = safer city.
    More guns = better behavior.
    More guns = less violence, less robbery, less murder.

    What we need less of, is idiotic politicians like you.

    Unfortunately Americans do love our guns he has a point there, The US Constitution allows us to have guns to protect us from the Gov’t, not from being overthrown by another country. DO NOT SPEND ONE DIME of Federal money for language classes for our kids to learn to speak Arabic, Farses our whatever.

    Daley…..I have Bloomburg…when the law said he couldent run for a 3rd term,,he just bought the city polititions and what a supprize, the term limits gone. last time I saw mayor mike “man of the pepole” 15 mins.before his comming, a swat van pulls up out come 6 fully dressed swat “in fully i mean all with full battle rattl. Note a pistol in NYC will get you real jail time, but when your a billion air, your protective detal has M4′s (short m 16′s with a 3 rnd auto burst) o ya thats right only LEO’s can have them in NYC. and 10 mins. later Mayor mikey pulls up in his armored car, first out steps his gard, ( automatic wepon under his long black jacket(must be discrete). I have to admit it was impressive, the rest of the forward detail was real good, couldent pick them out, but i have to assume a forward team of at least 6 more. yep nothings to good for mike, or any anti gun pol. o ya, no you cant protect yourself, your home, or kids, they know better……
    PS dont worry when seconds count, the cops are just mins. away

  15. Rico on November 10, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    The very fact that these kind of socialist politicians want to disarm the American people, show how desperate they are for control & power…and how hypocritical they are…armed body gaurds are good for them, but guns are bad for the American people.
    Plleeeeaase! I honestly don’t know how clowns like this guy get elected.

    Mayor Bozo is a complete moron and should be shown the door.
    To use the recent heinous acts of evil committed at Ft. Hood, as a platform to tout his politically motivated “gun control” agenda
    is despicable and disgusting.

    The fact is, had the soldiers been allowed to carry their guns with them….the Islamic Jihadist Wacko would have, no doubt, been taken out in a hail of return gunfire, a lot sooner.
    Americans are fed up with these pandering politicians and all this “politcal correctness” nonesense. It just makes complete idiots out of people when they overlook the obvious.

  16. Steve Albright on November 10, 2009 at 8:19 pm

    Let me get this straight, it was the pistol that yelled “Allah Akbar!” It was the pistol that made the inflamatory web posting. It was the pistol that attended the “mad Cleric’s” worship service. It was the PISTOL THAT HAULED HIS AMERICA HATING BUTT THROUGH THERE FIRING AT OUR SOLDIERS?!!!

    Muslims in America have killed this year by:
    1. driving a car into a crowd of people.
    2. slitting of the throat.
    3. shooting.

    And all the Chicago Mayor recognizes is ‘guns’?!?!? Well, Americans have a love of ‘cars’ and Americans have a love of ‘knives’…of which Muslims have killed with those too.
    The common denominator in all three of the above ‘death’s’ is not the tool, but the religion.

    Mr. Mayor…you disrespect the 13 fallen soldiers at Ft. Hood with your political spin.

  19. Boozwaa on November 10, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    Bring that gun to justice and put it on trial. When convicted, give it the death penalty by lethal injection. Or can the gun claim post traumatic stress syndrome and get a stay at a mental ward? Were there warning signs before this that this gun would kill? What about this guns’ friends were we not told by this guns’ buddy, AK-47, that this gun might act out? Is this mayor for real? Another Liberal democrat making absolutely no sense. Is he next going to blame planes for 9/11?

  20. Delano on November 10, 2009 at 11:16 pm

    While, there are quite a few blogs on this site in November and the most responses you can get is a maximum of 6. But, you talk about guns and while, while and while, eighteen quick hits on the subject of guns. I know what the major concern is and it’s not Health Care!

    Well he seems to have touched a nerve and the video doesn’t even show what question he was asked. When you see the vitriol in the responses its no wonder he would make a statement like he did. Just read them back over to feel the incredible bitterness

    When someone makes up their mind to do something illegal with a gun (like kill), they don’t care about committing the lesser offense of obtaining a gun illegally (if in fact it were illegal to posses a gun). Availability? Cocaine is illegal, yet anyone who wants it can buy it illegally. Guns will never be unavailable to someone willing to break the law. Now lets talk about good guys. If anyone of those soldiers had a gun how far would he have gotten??? How many lives would have been saved??? Hasan was only brought down when a cop with a gun brought him down. You will never get all of the guns out of the hands of bad guys by passing laws. By outlawing guns you empower the assailant and disarm victims trying to defend themselves.

  26. Sparky on November 11, 2009 at 8:25 am

    Mayor Daley: Disarm your security detail if you really believe what you are saying. Guns aren’t the solution. They can only lead to more violence! While were at it let’s disarm our nukes. The heinous and rogue regimes will follow our lead and it won’t change our standing in the world. Everyone will like us and we can all sing together in harmony without threats ;-)

    What a dirtbag!

  33. southsidetom on November 11, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    Daley has an armed contingent of 22 CPD officers protecting him and his family. 22!!

    He is a living example of how power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. He is an arrogant thieving lying liberal who panders to the media’s political correctness and buys votes by handing out welfare.

    Hope all the morons who voted for his protege are enjoying having Chicago-style “Perfect Storm” politics rammed down their throats.

    Wow, I just found your blog today linked at Big Government and I have to say…I’m home. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for.

    The Daley thing here (being from Chicago myself) is sickening. Guns don’t kill people…liberals’ inaction when there are clear warning signs that someone is a deranged jihadist do.

    So when the cabinet maker gouges out a piece of the door we blame the chisel? Guns are tools, just like other tools. They have their benign uses, and then there are those uses that people put them to outside of the ordinary/acceptable. It wasn’t a gun shooting itself that caused the catastrophe in Ft. Hood–it was a man with a twisted mission. Had he attacked those poor unfortunate victims with a knife would we now be blaming the incident on our fascination with knives? Would we be calling for a ban on knives?

    Obviously a reason why people say that common sense is the least common sense of all. Far too many politicians who have none at all.

  37. Spud on November 11, 2009 at 4:28 pm

    Quoting ‘Jim’ here.

    And responding.

    ‘Well he seems to have touched a nerve and the video doesn’t even show what question he was asked. When you see the vitriol in the responses its no wonder he would make a statement like he did. Just read them back over to feel the incredible bitterness’

    And this gives you no idea, no grasp, no clue as to how bad a remark like this is? This is as bad as claiming ‘Anyone who owns a gun, or know someone who owns a gun, or might have owned a gun in the past or may own a gun in the future, or if you just love guns and even don’t like to use them, you helped support terroristic acts because some messed up in the head insane looney went on a killing spree with a gun’.

    This isn’t resolving the problem of ‘Looney with a gun’ or ‘Looney killed people with [weapon] at [place]‘ this is just claiming ‘If you’re an american, and you love guns, you basically fund the problem with guns being used to kill people’.

    IGNORE THE FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE WHO OWN GUNS, like myself and ALOT of the posters here or their families would NEVER dream of doing something like this- or atleast doing this to innocent people! As I’m sure once in a while one would want to get vigilanty style justice upon rapists and murderers, but ofc we don’t do it as it’s wrong.

    That is the key factor between us and the looneys. Not love of guns.

    With all the gun control in Chicago should it be the safest place in Illinois? But yet the sats talk for them selves

  39. Wilson on November 11, 2009 at 10:23 pm

    southsidetom you are right on every point & we must make sure that the end of Dick Daley’s tenure is very near. How can Chicago continue welfare or any other program of the past with the city flat broke as it is? People go to the polls. Get rid of Daley & get rid of the Chicago “nine.” Get rid of the anti-gun faction & the city will clean up.
    If any politican does not support the 2nd amendment then he fails to support the Constitution, the people & his office. Discard all like him next election.

  40. Brian Watt on November 15, 2009 at 10:23 am

    How is it that these democrats in this State get reelected? Why do you vote for them? Daily is clearly an idiot full of appeasement A ass kisser from why back Get this goofy guy out of the office of the Mayor and get Dick Durbin out too.

    This from the mayor of the city with the highest number of murders in a large city in the country.
    I think it’s safe to say “Chicago is the murder capital of the country.”
    Just to set the record Miami with only 78 murders (Oct. this year) has the highest rate in the USA but Chicago with over 585 murders (Oct. this year) has a lower rate so it thus must be safer.
