He ends on the right note but before you get there, mucho smugness.
This.

The first 50 seconds he makes some huge points then resorts for the next 4 minutes making fun of the same people.

We have inner city crime problems.

We have detached angry mass shooter problems.

And overlying both, we have a gun problem.

Now, before some gun fetishist says "guns are illegal in Chicago!". You can drive to places where they aren't illegal and load up So, just stop.
Guns are not illegal in Chicago. You just can’t legally buy a gun in Chicago. No shortage of dealers in adjacent suburbs and Indiana.

Just paroled have no problem illegally acquiring a firearm within hours of being released. 8000 firearms were taken off the streets last year. FBI traces.

Masses are fleeing the gang infested ghetto areas. Schools are substantially under occupied.

Rarely are witnesses willing to come forward. Either they are protecting family members or are afraid of gang retaliation.

True

It probably runs 15 to 1 on right-wing mass shooters to left-wing mass shooters, if not 100 to 1. Right-wing terrorism is the threat to this nation.

The bold is my point.

Gun nuts consistently point to Chicago as a reason why gun control fails.

Americans love their violent govt and diefy those who carry out its dirty work. Soldiers and cops enjoy a cult like status in society, excuses are made for them when they commit their own crimes. One team applauds the use of violence to force interpersonal relationships and the other team lauds the bombs dropped on the other side of planet and both teams approve of the armed robbery that makes all the violence possible. Hollywood has been co-opted as have the video game designers. The armed to the teeth govt employee is always the hero and never the bully.
I have no doubt many of these killers see themselves in this same light;the underdog slaying dragons.

Hence the China sex robot thread yesterday.

Expectations on the other side are often equally as unbalanced. I know some fat ugly smelly guys who think they are above their female counterparts. I know one guy who fits the bill. Former coworker who I got along well with... once he adjusted his expectations... His girlfriend is definitely aesthetically challenged but he seems MUCH happier. Im actually happy for him. been with her like 2 years.

If you are a fat ugly guy, you are not going to get that pretty cheerleader unless you are bringing something else to the table like fame or piles of money. Reality is what it is.

Funny thing. By age 45 or so, that cheerleader is often very close to the median in looks. Find someone that you can deal with and makes you happy. In the long term, we all end up meh and pudgy. (Hopefully skipping the obese and smelly part.) Many of my HS class are on FB. Most of the pretty girls are meh looking now in our early 50s.
