The problem with gun violence is the emphasis on ownership, instead of use.
Felony gun misuse is a problem because our jails are full of candy criminals. Dope offenders that need treatment, not jail.
As I’ve said before, in the case of gun violence, for the first offense, neuter the perp.
I’m not going to suggest that I have the cure for our wacked out justice system, but I do know that armed violence is repugnant. Terrible. Devistating, and worse when it’s a school shooting.
So, let the punishment be repugnant and horrible.
When a firearm is used in the commission of a crime, the covicted felon would best be neutered for the first offense. We don’t want to deny said offender possible rehabilitation, but we don’t want to let that freak breed. Let’s keep that shit out of the gene pool.
The inablers need harsh consequenses as well. “My kid took my gun” ain’t good enough.
Oh, and here in the city, police ought to take these gangbangers and teach ’em to shoot. The rash of unintended victims is appalling. Teach ’em to hit only the person they’re shooting at and there will be a dramatic decrease in shooting injuries and deaths.
De Joy. Slowing the mail to disrupt mail in voting to, supposedly, help Republicans win elections at the expense of all Americans.
A prime example of typical ‘gingrich’ republican dirty play.
Thank you Democrats for not stooping that low. We don’t need that kind of hero.
We’re not at war,this is politics. We’re all Americans.
Will Republicans ever drop the greed and join the fun of building a great nation?
What’s taking so long? He’s a cancer on the post office. He’s got to be removed!
Biden needs to get his party in line. He needs to know that we want to spend as much time and resources as it takes to reveal all the criminal activity of the trump administration and prosecute the guilty parties to the fullest extent of the law.
We’re happy to move on only after we’ve cleaned up the last for years.
You can’t build a new administration on a turd pile.
The Republican legislature is riddled with liars insurrectionist and crazy conspiracy theorists.
Who are you going to legislate with the Republican party is a sham.
The only bipartisan should possible is with the people not the Republican legislature. It’s about time we give the people what they want.
Out of the 74 million people who voted for trump, how many are just rich and greedy, and how many are just dumb as hell?
In Chicago, I like the Wrigley building-even though he leaned to the right. I like the Tribune tower even though the newspaper leans right. I like the Hancock building unaware of John’s politics.
Every time I look North from Clark and Lake…..and see the Trump building with it’s big sign, it’s like getting kicked in the stomach
I don’t know if a campaign to remove it would succeed, but I would jump on board if enough folks felt as I do.

I’d like you to hear from my friend
Tyrone Hussein ‘the dreamer’ Nguyen.
We’ve been friends for decades and I’m glad to welcome him as a casual contributor to the Rahkanee blog. Here’s why; “Trump insulted Blacks Arabs young Latino kids…….(nixed the DACA program and put them in cages) and Asians. Old Tyrone is a nod to them all.”.
We’re all appalled by trump’s callous disregard for humanity. Thanks Tyrone.
The Retrumplicans drank deeply of a recipe for madness; greed, cowardice and the lust for power, nurtured by ” the donald”.
Their disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law and common decency is patterned after trump’s DISPICABLE behavior. There’s no going back for them. The Retrumplicans are forever bound to that bilious bag of no good. Good riddance. Vote them out! Vote them out!✌️
