Project 21’s Charles Butler on Chicago Gun Violence: Blame Weak Politicians

On the 1/31/13 edition of “Real News,” Project 21 member Charles Butler tells Blaze TV’s Will Cain that politicians complaining about gun-related murders in Chicago are hypocrites who “know exactly what’s going on” in their crime-ridden communities but cannot accept that the city’s draconian anti-gun laws really make the situation more perilous for law-abiding citizens.

Charles adds that some neighborhoods in the Windy City are “at the mercy of urban terrorists.”  These neighborhoods are so bad that the police defer to gang leaders to keep the peace.
