They should BAN ALL GUNS in Chicago so only the crooks and cops have them. That will solve the problem. Errr wait.....

500 Homicides this year. Obviously their aggressive gun restrictions aren't working very well. Didn't anyone tell the bad guys that they need to abide by the law!?

Let's be honest fellow Americans. Most of us don't care about thugs shooting each other. That truth has played out for years as gangbangers have been killing each other in very large numbers in many American inner-cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Wash DC, St. Louis, Memphis. Where has the outrage been? There has not been any outrage.

"500 Homicides this year. Obviously their aggressive gun restrictions aren't working very well." ---- Not when there are a billion firearms in circulation. We need to reduce the availability.

NY has tough gun restrictions that has greatly lowered their gun homicide rate.

Australia had 13 mass shootings in the 18 prior to stricter gun laws and none in the 14 years since.

Gun laws do not stop homicides.. ROFLMAO.. You will never be rid of guns or our constitution. This is about population control, education, parenting, and much much more. Doesn't anyone else understand this? Did you know it was MUCH easier to obtain Assault Rifles, machines guns, and alike in the 1970's thank it is now? It's about too many people, too little parenting, too little education, and so on. I would say much more but I don't want to offend certain groups or parties....

I personally reject any type of gun laws until the illegal guns are removed from the streets you know gangs and criminals, maybe Chicago just needs more good guys with guns.
