Sharpton Holds Chicago ‘Town Hall’ on Gun Violence, ‘Tea ‘Party’ Rhetoric Breaks Out; Local Media Mum

Calls for more gun control laws and getting guns off the streets were nonexistent and not mentioned by residents throughout the session.
Check it out:

Attempting to build his national profile, Al Sharpton “took up residence on the West Side (of Chicago) in November and began hosting … (weekly) town halls as part of an effort to find solutions to the city’s outsize homicide rate among young black males.”

Rebel Pundit at Breitbart News reports that a Thursday meeting in the city’s Hyde Park area not far from President Obama’s Chicago home didn’t exactly turn out the way Sharpton would have liked. There was even talk of having “Tea Party” meetings “like Republicans do.” Sharpton doesn’t need to worry too much, though, because Chicago’s establishment press has ignored what happened. Shamefully, so have a couple of smaller publications which apparently prefer bland misdirection over substantive reporting. Excerpts from the Breitbart report follow the jump (bolds are mine):

On Thursday, a town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and the aldermen in City Hall, with panel and audience members calling to vote out their elected officials.
