You folks obviously aren't up on gun rights. Chicago is used because of the laws that were in place due to gang violence epidemics in the city that abridged the rights of everyone. Had nothing to do with Chicago/Obama correlation. It was used before anyone knew who Obama was.

Maybe, I wasn't on this site back before Obama was president, so time will tell. Though anyone who knows anything about Chicago knows that it's issues with violence has nothing to do with gun laws.

Cities like Chicago and NYC will have lower per capita murder rates than cities like Newark, Camden, etc because there are tons of white people who can manage not to kill each other driving down per capita rates of the overall city.

Look at the per capita murder rates by race in those cities. Sickening. And to hear these politicians use them as pawns is sick. They should be calling out the culture that leads to these domestic terrorists giving their neighborhoods murder rates that rival third world hell holes.
