In an act of amazing theatrics a Illinois State Representative has asked the Illinois Governor to send the National Guard to Chicago to bring law and order to that city. Now I know she means well and she honestly thinks that this drastic measure will bring order to the “Windy City” but she can’t be serious about this proposal. Even others in her own party have disagreed with her idea. So I’m glad that there are some in Illinois who think that this isn’t such a good idea. Now that won’t solve the problem of gun violence in Chicago but this just might be the start to finding an ACTUAL solution to the madness that has engulfed that city.
Now I know that in Florida, sequestration has caused the Florida National Guard, to cut back the active force serving by 20% across the board. So in the potentially busiest part of the 2013 hurricane season, the National Guard my NOT be able to respond if needed in a Natural Emergency. So magically in the Democratic lead State of Illinois they have so much money that the 20% across the board cuts mysteriously do not happen there and the Illinois National Guard can go out and patrol the streets of Chicago making it safe for the children.
So does that infer that only Republican led States are subject to the sequestration reduction in funds and manpower? Maybe Governor Quinn has figured out how to not have his National Guard force be effected by the 20% across the board cuts in funding and manpower.
In fact if the enactment of more gun laws made a place safer…Chicago would be the safest place on the entire planet. But as the events over the July 4 weekend show, Chicago is far from being safe. In fact it is going further and further into chaos. These anti-gun policies have created the very environment that they were intended to prevent. Now the only people who have guns in Chicago are the very people that no one wants to have guns….law breaking violent criminals.
