Timmy the Tumor: Yeah, because all of the 400 homicides so far this year involved guns--guns owned by registered owners."Wanting to reduce homicides" does not equal "gun control ideas" subs.
Fark It: "PROBLEM: HOW DO WE GET ILLEGAL GUNS OFF CHICAGO STREETS?"
Calmamity: Fark It: "PROBLEM: HOW DO WE GET ILLEGAL GUNS OFF CHICAGO STREETS?"Why is the answer always "Make them more illegal"?That keeps not working, and we keep doing it.And no, I'm not suggesting everybody in Illinois go around with a Peacemaker strapped to their hip, but something isn't working when we can't even enforce the laws that already exist and some people's answer to that problem is to make new laws.
Barfmaker: On Sunday, almost 200 people took to the streets of Chicago in an anti-violence rallyImpressive.
Fark It: "PROBLEM: HOW DO WE GET ILLEGAL GUNS OFF CHICAGO STREETS?"They're framing it as a gun control question.
Ambitwistor: Solution: gun owners should be limited to 140 guns or fewer.
PallMall: Execute gang members.Are the cops in Chicago so corrupt that they forgot to be regular-corrupt and do things like take hoods down a dark alley and shoot them in the face?
Duke_leto_Atredes: 24. Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.25. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with at least ".40."
MyPenIsHuge: Also, Illinois has astringent gun regulations already.
bim1154: I could live with this.
Pockafrusta: Start with a new mayor... One not so "corrupty"
Duke_leto_Atredes: gun control means you hit what you shoot at and put it down for good.1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.3. Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough nor using cover correctly.5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.8. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun.10. Use a gun that works EVERY TIME.11. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.12. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.13. Have a plan.14. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.15. Use cover or concealment as much as possible. The visible target should be in FRONT of your gun.16. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.17. Don't drop your guard.18. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.19. Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them).20. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.21. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.22. Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan to kill everyone you meet.23. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.24. Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.25. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with a "4."
