Maybe Chiraq should pass some new laws making shooting people illegal.

Or the mayor could ask all the criminals to not shoot people this week, so the hospital beds would be freed up for the chinese flu victims.

Hachitori: jaytkay: Is this thread where dullards point at the Chicago handgun ban that hasn't existed for a decade?

"Toughest gun laws in the United States!! Hurrrr!!! Hurrr!"

No, not the toughest, but there are still plenty of gun control laws in Illinois and Chicago....

The U.S. and the city of Chicago continue to face an epidemic of gun violence and death. The case of Illinois suggests that having individual states with relatively strong laws regulating firearms is not a comprehensive approach for reducing morbidity and mortality related to firearms. Expert researchers, community leaders, and policy makers have suggested the gun violence epidemic in the U.S. requires a multidisciplinary and multifaceted approach. Solutions must be both data- and community- driven.


To stop Y we need X!

Evidence shows that X has not stopped Y!

I AM NOT WRONG - WE JUST NEED MORE X AND W AND V! BUT X IS SOLID!

SirDigbyChickenCaesar: Abox: No arrests have been made

Arrests for what...was some obscure Chicago law broken?

all we need is a law that prevents law abiding citizens to buy certain scary guns and all this will stop


I agree totally.

There is nothing unusual about Chicago or Illinois gun laws.  And as shown above Chicago gun violence isn't the worst. And yet you think you proved both are true. Hilarious.

jaytkay: AngryDragon: Please don't shoot the mail carrier.  He brings the child support checks.

If you're the baby daddy, carry on.

Slow day at Storm Front and American Renaissance?


*sigh*  I didn't say anything about race.  I didn't even imply it.  The article doesn't even say anything about race.

It's not racist to point out that a poverty stricken neighbourhood like the SW side of Chicago is highly likely to have single parent households.  About 80% if you believe the statistics.  My observation also applies in Appalachia and Albuquerque among others.

What's interesting is that you immediately jumped there though.

dkulprit: But did he finish his route?  Mail still needs to get delivered.


Probably. My sister's letter carrier (not in Chicago) was dragged into a vacant house and raped at gunpoint. The local post office wouldn't change her route so she still has to deliver mail in the same neighborhood. Word is that other letter carriers voluntarily deliver for her on the few blocks where it happened so she doesn't have to constantly revisit "that house."

Illinois state laws, Cook County county laws, and the City of Chicago city laws are both highly unusual and a major infringement on the right to Self Defense and your 2nd Amendment rights.  E.g. You need a State issued FOID just to see/touch/handle a firearm in a store.  And of course to buy one.  Well, just so happens that the state system is so back logged that no new, nor renewal, cards are being processed.  Oops, no 2nd A for you.  A right denied but a bureaucratic snafu is a Right denied.

Same with not allowing any NFA items to be owned in the State.
