MSNBC Host: Gun Control in Chicago Doesn't Even Exist

Once it becomes apparent that confiscation can't happen in the immediate future and the improbability of outlawing ALL semi-automatic firearms the next phase will go in effect. That phase will be the tax and fee phase and with the need to figure out a way to extort as much money as possible to deal with the debt and reckless spending this will be the easiest one to sell. The irony is so thick it makes a chainsaw look like a butter knife. We can't cut off their funds and force them into fiscal responsibility but they can bleed us dry through fees and taxation. In 1776 it was , 'No taxation without representation'. Now it's, 'No Taxation by misrepresentation.'

I would add that Taxation With Representation ain't so hot either.

Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the country, not New York City, and has the highest murder rate. In 2013 we've already seen nearly a dozen murders in the Windy City but that isn't stopping MSNBC host Ed Schultz from calling for even more gun control and saying it "hardly exists."

The gun laws and the gun violence in Chicago is a helluva lot different than it is in New York City. There's two different worlds when it comes to gun violence, it's not even close. New York City is not, you know, an all-safe...
