Hypeline: Obama ignores Chicago’s gun control failure


Kelsey Petruzzi of Hypeline has destroyed President Barack Obama’s talking points on gun control in the wake of the Oregon college shooting. Obama conveniently fails to mention that the crown jewel of gun control cities, Chicago, is a veritable war zone, with 14 people killed in gun violence with a recent 15 hour period.

Petruzzi outlines how Mayor Rahm Emanuel responded to the violence, and noted Obama repeatedly ignores the failures of the city’s gun control laws:

And the brilliant Mayor of Chicago’s response has been about as helpful as Barack Obama’s, “”I’m going to try to control my anger.  We have way too many guns in the city of Chicago.”

Some of the strongest  gun control laws in the country apparently aren’t enough according to Emanuel.

How can Obama continue to ignore the violence on the streets of Chicago?
