I guess we need more gun control....but wait guns are already illegal in Chicago


No they aren't.

When will this false meme die?


You are right I was slightly off. The reason why people assume guns are illegal is because you can easily have an illegal gun in Chicago You need to register for gun type and then in Chicago you need to register your guns or they are illegal. Does this mean If I'm driving from Washington and go through Chicago my guns are illegal?

I really have no idea why it is so hard for gun advocates to understand. Gun control in Chicago does not work because of the surrounding states lack of gun control.



When ever you ban anything all it does is raise the price to buy it doesn't actually make all guns just disappear....

When they banned liquor or drugs there is still just as much as before, so why would guns be any different?

Sympathy is there, so how do we stop this violence? I'm not shooting anyone, I'm not committing crime, I'm have no part in any of this. I would love for the "bad" people to go away. The unfortunate part is in a society of 300+ million you have bad people. I don't have an answer to that other than I want to protect my own family. This is a reason I don't live in a hell hole that many of our cites have turn into.

Let me ask YOU what should we do...people die every day to something it is the nature order of things...

I could turn driving into a political issue too since it kills a hell of a lot more people, so why are you so emotional about this and not calling people who speed as sicker f#ers? Or is it that there different ways that people die that is ok? death is what it is, death...and we have 1000s of ways we do it every year.

I didn't start the political side to gun deaths....but it is what it is....

maybe it might be a better idea to allow open carry like they had in old west. 20 shot in one day wow strictest gun control in country really not working is it. why because only criminals are carrying now. make gun safety and marksmanship required in school classes in school like pe.

Yes. When Kennedy got shot it woke people up to the fact that their dreams weren't safe anymore..........If anything, we're more divided than ever. Assume otherwise and you come across as being very naïve.

I long ago learned not to make too many assumptions about America (especially hopeful ones).....You lot are your own worst enemy and in that much at least, your government does indeed represent you!

if innocent civilians could just shoot back.....


lol.

And you got stars.


[SNIPPED]
If it were common knowledge that EVERYONE carried a strap....
don't you think less people would be inclined to openly shoot at someone for fear that they may be killed?

Possibly.

Doesn't make the idea any less stupid.

Yeah? and how's that buddy?
If the time came where you were pinned down by some crazed gunman... and some civilians came to your rescue because they can carry a gun and saved your life.......... I'll bet your opinion would change... or maybe not.. some bleeding heart liberals don't tend to see the broad picture.

Welcome to the internet.

Don't worry, it callouses you after a while and before you know it you won't feel much at all. It's better this way sometimes.
