Dear America.

Your country, I.E. it's wealth generation infrastructure, is being dismantled and moved to where the ROI is better.

It is your patriotic duty to stare at your feet, piss blame like a firehose and shout at each other so that you don't pay attention to this process.

And so far, you f*cking own it.  I mean, seriously.  Good job.  Wild dogs couldn't have done better if you threw them a steak.

Spare Me: FDR Jones: Some people call them "gangs." I like to think of them as well-regulated militias.

That's a really dumb comment and not even remotely similar.


I thought it was hilarious and I'm 100% pro-gun.

Not being able to laugh at a joke is a sign of extremism.

cousin-merle: Yogimus: The Germans hardly had ANY problems with the joos

jayphat: Yeah, you never have any violence when the people you're trying to get rid of can't shoot back.

You guys do know that guns were legal Nazi Germany, right?  Hitler actually further loosened gun restrictions for everyone but the Jews in 1938, after Kristallnacht.


Exactly my point.

The One True TheDavid: sno man:

Most of them could use some target practice, too. 19 in about 22 hours, and only 2 kill shots. Thugs I am disappoint.

In IL can you join a gun range without having to prove you own your gun legally? You can in KY: you have to swear you're legally allowed to own one but they don't make you prove it. You only have to prove you're 18 with a valid drivers' license or state ID, or have a parent there supervising you. And the one in Lexington only charges $20/month on weekdays.

Won't somebody think of the bystanders? Seriously. In a lot of these cases the intended victim, like the shooter, is somebody few people will miss; what pisses people off is the 4 year old girl who gets hit by a stray bullet. The gang-bangers should be able to kill each other off all they want.

As for gun control, I'll wager that few of the shooters in Chicago are legally allowed to have a handgun and/or that their guns were not purchased legally. See? The law works!


You can't even hold one in a gunshop unless you have your FOID card.

See, Illinois doesn't register the gun - they register the gun owners.

Not strictly true. I found out that you can shoot at a range if the owner of the gun has a FOID but a friend does not. One of my friends took his younger brother, who is a resident of MA, shooting over the weekend. The brother had to shoot in the same lane and could only use the gun and the ammo they brought though.
