This is what SHTF Will Look Like: Over 70 Shot in Chicago over the Memorial Day Weekend.

Chicago Police

Preppers are often asked exactly what it is they are prepping for; while there are probably as many reasons as there are preppers, Chicago is one of the best examples of why millions of Americans have realized the need to be defensively prepared.

Over the Memorial Day weekend over 70 people were shot in Chicago, pushing the total number of shootings for this year well over 1,500. Yes, you read that right; 6 months into the years and there have already been 1,500 shootings in the gun-free utopia known as Chicago.

But how can that be? Chicago is a city run by liberal democrats who have made it virtually impossible for a citizen to legally acquire a firearm – if you believe in the gun control fairy tales, Chicago should be a Utopia of peace and love! Unfortunately we live in the real-world, and the real-world can be a pretty damn ugly place, especially when you disarm the public and allow thugs to terrorize the streets.

For those that prep, and understand the need to be able to defend themselves, I’m probably preaching to the choir; but that being said, Chicago should be a wake-up call for anyone who doubts how bad things will get should this country plunge into a long-term collapse situation. Chicago is merely a reflection of what we will see, and to some extent are already seeing spread throughout the country.

Ever since the police were told to stand down in Baltimore and Ferguson, we have seen street gangs and the general criminal element growing increasingly more violent. So far this year there have been 1,514 people shot on the streets of Chicago, up 50 percent from last year at this time. Of that number, 228 have been killed by the gunfire.

Chicago: An Urban Warzone

While the mainstream media continues to ignore what’s going on in Chicago and other urban areas of the country, instead pretending the problem is police related violence; the fact is Chicago has been a warzone for quite some time. In fact, the city has become more dangerous than Iraq.

    We need to send in the Marines like we did in Fallujah. House to house searches and ass kicking. They will kill or capture all of those criminals.

    You should do real research before writing an article. Illinois, including the city of Chicago, is a CC zone now. It won’t be long before some of those a$$hats pull on a gun toting banger and realize too late why CC doesnt work in urban areas with gangs.

      that’s funny since I actually live here in Illinois. Try to get a CC in Chicago, it’s not going to happen! May be “legal” now, doesn’t mean they are actually issuing them.

        ????? … City of Chicago has ABSOLUTELY no input what-so-ever with FOID cards or CCW permits – 100% IL State Police ….

        CPD doesn’t even get a 2nd look at CCW permits – only the Cook County Sheriff Dart has a POSSIBLE veto based on credible evidence – even then the veto is reviewable by an independent board …

        if you’re a POS crook – do what you do naturally – crook a gun illegally

    What a bunch of young foolish lost kids. They don’t have any idea how their lives have been manipulated. These young people are led by the nose but they think that they are the controllers. There are elements within our government that are setting up these gangs directly and indirectly. The government doesn’t care about these “kids” and they don’t care about their victims.

    First we need to stop illegal and legal immigration. Deport the leaders of the gangs into the hands of law enforcement in their native Countries.

    Second we need to stop giving citizenship status to the children of illegals (anchor babies). Stop all welfare, food stamps, medical to anyone who is here illegally.

    Third is to fine businesses so much that they don’t hire illegals.
    Fourth is to heavily patrol the border.
    Fifth is to build a wall along the borders in the north as well as the south. And heavily patrol waterways, ports.
    Sixth is to make our colleges and universities reflect the true demographic of white Christian Americans and send the foreigners back to their own Countries. Only U.S. Citizens in our colleges.
    Seven is get rid of the Zionists who have taken over the Banks, the Media, the Universities, publishing, the Courts and every facet of our lives. That includes music TV and entertainment.
    Eighth is to designate an area of the United States for the black citizens and only allow sales of homes to blacks so that once more in America blacks will truly have their own territory. They should have full control of their area and white’s should have their own separate area which should be under the control of white people. Yes, we made a mistake. Integration doesn’t work. We should admit that integration has been disastrous for both blacks and whites.

    In the meantime. Arrest any and all gang bangers.
    End the war on drugs and let people decide for themselves. Also make rehab available upon request or through court requirement.

    There is more but that is a start. Lots of people will balk at these suggestions but you and I know if we implemented these changes, there would not be all these killings and all this crime and misery.

      You take the problem of crime and managed to turn it into a race one. Have you forgotten your white ancestors were illegals in the Americas? It was because of their brute, criminal force and imperialism that you now think you are entitled to this land. Did you not think others would ever rise to defend their rights against you? Stop whining, you bigot; you’re just getting served what you deserve.

        May I add that I believe there should be a territory for Latinas and Latinos along the border in lower Texas and Southern California. As for Latins rising, they are among the lowest paid and lest educated Americans. Stop parroting the lies of the main stream media and the deceptions of the powers who don’t care about anyone except themselves. Your politically correct attitude is the result of years of brainwashing. I don’t blame you for feeling the way you do. At one time, I too, was brainwashed. Educate yourself as to why people like myself have begun to realize that we Americans, black brown and white, have been sold down the river of politically incorrect, multicultural destruction. I, rather than being a racist who seeks racial domination; respect all races and wish to see the beauty and dignity of the races survive. Integration is the watering down and weakening of all racial integrity ultimately resulting in chaos. It is out of this chaos that the globalists will turn the people into slaves. Wake up.

    I was a medic deployed to Iraq for 2 tours, and worked EMS in Detroit for 3 years. I was shot at more in Detroit than I was in Iraq, and this was before all the Ferguson crap. Once I finished my PA, I got out of the city with a quickness.

    There must have not been many multiple race shootings or the corrupt liberal media would have been all over it and it would have brought out all the race baiters who are in reality the real racists.Folks this country can’t handle another 4 years like it’s been for the past 8,something has got to change or we will witness a SHTF scenario that many will not survive.

    As being born and raised in Chicago, I can tell you that Chicago is not a ‘gun free utopia’. It is actually pretty easy to legally get a gun here. But gun free zone or not, that is not the issue or the main reason for all the violence here in Chicago.

    The reason why we have so many crimes is because of how segregated this city is.
    Chicago is known as being one of the most segregated cities in america.
    I literally live on the edge of a rich town known as Oak Park, next to another called Austin, where there has been a lot of violence in lately. It baffles me how I can walk four blocks into Oak Park and find beautiful parks, shops and big houses and even mansions! Walk four blocks into Austin and it is the complete opposite!

    In these areas like Austin, and other western, southern, and northwestern sides of the city, there are bank “desserts” and the main source of income is through shitty jobs that don’t pay well and screw their workers over and have to resort to using loan services that screw these people over even more. For just one example. Not the mention the education is crap, the stats of people dropping out of school are growing.. In these areas, people often deal with things like racism, domestic abuse, and god knows what else.. the things these people go through that they consider to be normal for them is mindboggling. The result is that a lot of these kids turn to gangs for some form of love, and the violence continues.

    Luckily I see many people trying to help the situation in other ways. There are centers to get kids off the street by taking dance and art classes, some even for free. As well as churches trying to help their communities in other ways. People helping with getting the therapies they need as well as gardens for people in areas where there are even no real grocery stores!

    These are the issues they should be worrying about! Its not that hard to see whats wrong with this city and all the ways we can help fix it!
