Chicago Shootings since Wednesday: 55, 9 Dead

As of Saturday morning, July 6, fifty-five people have been shot across Chicago since Wednesday.  Nine are dead.  Two boys, ages 5 and 7 among those seriously hurt.  Chicago, with a population of 2.7 million people, has some of the most stringent gun laws in America.  Chicago is home to President Barack Obama.
On the other hand, Arizona has some of the least stringent gun laws in America.  You do not even need to own a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm.  In Phoenix, with a population of 1.4 million people, as of last Wednesday, through Saturday morning, no one was shot, and no one lay dead.
Question:  Do gun laws keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and the insane?   No, gun laws keep firearms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens who use them to protect themselves.  
For more information, see Just Facts – Gun Control.  You also might want to thank Russell Pearce for standing up for Arizona citizens in protecting our 2nd Amendment Rights.  While an Arizona Senator, he authored SB1108,  making Arizona #1 in the nation in Second Amendment freedoms.   See The Russell Pearce Record.

1070 Turns Three While Amnesty Looms

by Sen. Russell Pearce, former president of the Arizona State Senate and current board member of the Arizona Conservative club and chairman of BanAmnestyNow.com.  Portions of this article appeared in the May 12, 2013 Sunday edition of the Arizona Republic.
SB-1070 has been extremely successful!
SB-1070 is now three years old.  All but a few small pieces have been upheld as constitutional by the highest court in the land, and “America’s toughest anti-illegal immigration law” is not only on the books here in Arizona, but working quite well.  Crime rates are dramatically down.  Our state, county, and city governments have saved hundreds of millions of dollars in K-12 education with fewer illegal aliens in the classrooms, and saved tens of millions more in social services.
Illegal aliens have taken lives.  More than a dozen Phoenix police officers have been killed or maimed by illegal aliens.  Cochise County rancher Robert Krentz was murdered during the debate on SB 1070.  Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered near the border, and the list goes on.

The Russell Pearce Record

Many people don’t know much about Russell Pearce’s life. They don’t know how his difficult and challenging childhood influenced him for the good, or that he saved a small child from drowning, or that he was critically shot in the hand and chest in the line of duty, for which he was awarded the Medal of Valor–the highest award given in law enforcement for exceptional bravery. They don’t know about his accomplishments as Chief Deputy in the Sheriff’s Department, and later as Director of Motor Vehicles, or that he served admirably as a Judge. And they also don’t know about his exemplary record of accomplishments while serving in the Arizona House of Representatives and the Senate.

Statement from Congressman Trent Franks

“When you ask voters what they want in an elected official, they say they want someone with courage and principles. Someone who will do what is right even when it is the tough thing to do.
