    Oh yeah! Those tough firearms restrictions really work. Criminals always respect gun laws.

    I am not going to lie, as long as it is gang bangers killing each other, I have no problem with this.

    If they would just make shooting people illegal, this wouldn't happen.

    What do Chicago, Oakland and WA DC have in common except the homicide rate?

    Chicago should institute laws that prohibit murder. Oh, wait.....they already have those. I guess these guys killing each other are not aware of them.
    We need to educate them, then all murders would stop.

    They obviously need to expand the existing gun free zones and pass more gun laws. That'll fix it. Yeah....

    The latest excuse from the gun control folks is that the problem isn't inner City Chicago. It's the fault of neighboring areas of Illinois and even other states that don't have strict enough gun laws.

    Hmmm, help me understand this, Illinois requires a FOID for gun and ammunition purchase. Neighboring states can only sell handguns to residents and that's only with a background check. I guess I just don't get how "others" are responsible for the problems in Chicago. Someone help edumacate me.

    Well, there may be some new news soon. IL may take preeminence and cancel out all of Chicago's rediculous laws.

    Illinois lawmakers approve plan to allow concealed carry for gun owners | Fox News

    "
    But its obliteration of all local gun laws, including Chicago's ban on assault-style weapons, drew immediate resistance from Gov. Pat Quinn, a Chicago Democrat like Madigan. Quinn said the proposal endangers the public by pre-empting local gun laws, which have nothing to do with concealed carry, the only subject covered by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' decree.
