Ed Schultz: Gun violence is worse in Chicago because they don’t have any gun laws

Ed Schultz wants so badly to make the case that strict gun laws actually reduce gun violence that he said on his show last Friday that New York City has less gun violence than Chicago because Bloomberg has implemented the strictest gun laws in America. In Chicago, he said, gun laws don’t even exist. Seriously.

Apparently Ed hasn’t done his research because Chicago has among the strictest gun laws in America. In fact the State of Illinois was just given 180 days to come up with new gun laws because the old ones were so strict they violated the 2nd amendment.

What a dope!

ED SCHULTZ: 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. You know, New York City is not, you know, an all-safe zone or what not, I’m not trying to make that case. But a city that has got strict, the strictest gun laws in America put forth by Mayor Bloomberg, versus the gun laws that apparently don’t even exist in Chicago, you’ve got two totally different numbers when it comes to lives lost.

    You’re being too kind to Eddy, there Scoop. I’m pretty sure describing this moron as a “dope” is a gross understatement. 😉

      I find it interesting that they are trying to take away our guns while planning on by-passing the Congress to proclaim Amnesty and making it increasingly difficult for Americans to get out of the country.

      Could it be that the gov’t wants to force us to stay in America and pay for all the new Democrats aka illegals turned legal? Just a thought.

      I have heard that Montana has nullified the health care mandate. And that your state is big on guns, has low unemployment, a hefty oil supply and is largely Conservative and believes in the Constitution, overall. Are these things true? I am wondering what the freest states in America are at this time. Thank you in advance for your advice.

      • KenInMontana

        In the urban areas things tend to be purplish, in the rural areas red. What the Montana legislature and Governor did was to flat refuse to partake in or set up the exchanges. On Guns and the 2nd, well let’s just say that showing anti-gun opinions will make one’s political career into a non-starter in Montana, regardless of party. While we have quite a bit of oil, coal is by far more abundant.

        Wyoming is more Conservative, possibly the most Conservative State in the Union right now.

          Thank you so much for the information, Ken. You helped me make a major decision.

  • stage9

    Let’s outlaw liberalism first and then if violence still persists then we’ll consider stricter gun laws. I suspect that if you outlaw liberalism, things will improve dramatically in the US.

    • Jazzee

      excellent post

    And once again, the liberal media mouth piece does not let TRUTH get in the way of pushing the Leftist agenda.

  • armyvet10

    I saw the picture and had to comment. 1st, Ed kind of resembles the actor who played Sgt Schultz, (John Banner) and given his comment on the “non existence of gun laws in Chicago” Ed also sounds just like the clueless Sgt Schultz. Hogan’s Heroes, funny show, and Ed is just as funny, but not in the same manner.

    • conservative58

      Hogan’s Heroes — brings back memories!

  • Is he referring to “pre-fire” Chicago?

    • badbadlibs

      He’s referring to pre Jurassic period Chicago. No, that can’t be right either….his skull is just empty, it’s the only explanation.

  • white531

    If there is a dumber person on the planet, than Ed Schultz, I don’t know who it is.

    It’s too bad we can’t fine these people $500 every time they get on the air and tell a lie. We could erase the entire national debt just on MSNBC. Add in the rest – ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and PBS and we’d all get a nice tax refund.

    • Haha! We could probably get it done with a $1.00 fine. They would still take so long to stop lying it would pay off the debt anyway.

    • FreeManWalking

      That would be a Great Fact Check.

      • He claims he was.

          Like anything he says is believable. Thanks for the info.

  • danceswithsheeple

    Sometimes I wonder whether a truly good God would create such a place as horrible as the ‘lake of fire’.

    Then I hear Shultz and co consistently and heartlessly deny innocent generations of Americans the truth about their nation, its laws and history and thus in the process stealing and degrading their minds irreversibly, while at the same time holding themselves out to be the guardians of all truth; And I am CONVINCED that GOD is MORE THAN JUST.

    Woe upon me, a doubting, sinning fool!

    I said I wouldn’t come back on this blog as a result of my annoyance at some patterns I saw in 2012. But you do good work here. And I am forced to rethink. We all must needs stick together in such dark hours. Well done TRS. And a happy new year to posters and moderators alike.

          An exchange I’m sorry for. Truly am. What I wrote was embarrassing and in the heat of the moment: election 2012 or what I call, ‘the fraud of 2012’.

          But again, I apologise wholeheartedly. The moderator was right. I was wrong.

          Yikes, I clicked on that and he mentioned Me, Nukeman and PVG by name 🙁

          I don’t recall brawling with him. I did duke it out with a union guy from UK once though. Probably because he was a union guy.

            It’s nice to get special mention though, don’t you think? Perhaps we will be in the running for the next Nobel Peace Prize, that is if Obama doesn’t want it again.

    • No worries! Life’s too short, etc.

      Besides, we’re all friends here. But that’s only because we don’t live close enough to borrow stuff from each other and fail to return it.

  • Hey Ed, did you know the 90% of adults who committed murder had criminal records as adults?

    So I’m guessing that gun laws didn’t matter much to them even before they killed someone.

  • I could say something origninal, but nah… what an idiot.

  • Ray

  • sjmom

    I’m not surprised at Ed because libs tend to speak before checking facts. Having said that, the reason Chicago has so many murders is not because of gun laws but because of the gangs and unless that problem is addressed the violence will continue.

    • NYGino

      “I’m not surprised at Ed because libs tend to speak before checking facts.”


  • Nukeman60

    Well, well. Chicago has no gun laws? I hope the word gets out to all the law-abiding citizens in Chicago so they can go out and purchase all those guns they need to defend themselves. They are desperate for them.

    I can see why he would say they ‘apparently’ have no laws because the gangs run rampant in the city. Criminals, after all, really don’t care two bits for any law, let alone the gun laws. That is sound reasoning for having responsible conceal-carry laws.

    Oh, yeah. The 7th Circuit US Court of Appeals stated just that. Thanks, Schultzie.

    “Gun control? It’s the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I’m a bad guy, I’m always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I’ll pull the trigger. We’ll see who wins.

    “Ed Schultz: Gun violence is worse in Chicago because they don’t have any gun laws”.

    Excuse me? Chicago doesn’t have any gun laws? It’s hard to tell if this guy is Sgt. Schultz or Baghdad Bob. Either way, he has a bad case of Anal Verbosity.

  • Ran53man

    ….and you wonder why MSNBC has no real credibility with the viewing public…all because of buttheads like this….

  • Ed is a bald-faced LIAR. Nobody can honestly claim ignorance of Chicago’s brutal anti-SELF DEFENSE laws.

  • JungleCogs

    The man is a total fool; if he wasn’t on that crappy network, he would be on food stamps.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Ignorance has no filter.

    Ed only talk because he has lips.

  • WordsFailMe

    I think ed misread the story, “There is much less effective gun violence in New York. Chicago is the killing machine, homs.

    Heard an old one the other day:

    Q: How do they kill so many black children in Chicago?
    A: Easy. You just don’t lead them as much.

  • 506 murders in Chgo in2012, where every anti-gun law is posted, re-posted and surrounded by thousands another ones….
    And there is a total prohibition of handguns. No handguns in Chgo, ask Rahm. ;-/
    And 506 people died from handguns.
    For the millionth time: how effective “the law” is?
    Print those laws on a soft paper and either stuck them into killers faces,
    or use as a toilet paper.
    Or stuck it in that thoughtless, idiotic, prerecorded snout like that of Schultz’.

  • Biggbear52

    I do not nor will I watch NBC. So I do not know Ed Schultz. According to his intentional rhetoric, I do not care to know him. This type of intentionally forced propaganda used to be a firing offense by the networks. it is now the only way they can stay on air. What bugs me most of all about this diatribe drivel is that they know they are programming they’re younger viewers. That is why it should be again, not only a firing offense, but illegal as well.

  • Gun laws do nothing. If crimes are to be committed they are done with stolen or black market weapons….

  • Maybe I’m just getting old, but as soon as I saw the picture of that idiot looking like Sgt. Shultz a very short sentence popped into my head “I know nothink!”

  • Ask a criminal if they know any gun laws. Other than it’s illegal to shoot someone, so don’t get caught, they don’t give a crap about laws. That’s why they’re criminals. They don’t abide by laws. They make their own laws. The law of the streets. Gun laws are monuments to lawmakers so they can feel good about themselves. They love to do photo-ops and surround themselves with people slobbering over their every word. It has nothing to do with reducing crime. It has everything to do with control.

  • Special Ed would have to work his way up to stupid

  • NCHokie02

    Ed is retarded. It’s a pretty well known fact (well at least I thought it was) that Chicago and Washington D.C. have some of the toughest gun control laws in the country yet are two of the most dangerous cities in the country.

    He think Chicago’s gun laws don’t exist because thats how ineffective they are.
