Psychopaths and gang bangers are killing too many children. Why dont you call for locking up and otherwise punishing these animals?

Hence the proposal to beef up law enforcement and mental health screening. You must have ignored or missed those.
How's that "disarm law abiding citizens" thing working out for you?
"Psychopaths and gang bangers are killing too many children. Why dont you call for locking up and otherwise punishing these animals?" No place to put them. Chicago jail is full. They're even being bunked in the prison cafeteria. Il is bankrupt and closing prisons due to lack of money.
"How's that "disarm law abiding citizens" thing working out for you?" Just fine thank you. Haven't had any problem I couldn't resolve peacefully for 65 years. Live by the gun- die by the gun
2010 the five states with the highest per capita gun death rates were Alaska, Louisiana, Montana, Alabama, and Wyoming. Each state has lax gun laws and higher gun ownership rates. By contrast, states with strong gun laws and low rates of gun ownership had far lower rates of firearm-related death. Ranking last in the nation for gun death was Hawaii, followed by Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and New York.
Roots in Chicago? the land of 500 murders last year. If Obama had his way only criminals will own guns.

@jcinmn..."thehoffers "How's that "disarm law abiding citizens" thing working out for you?" Just fine thank you. Haven't had any problem I couldn't resolve peacefully for 65 years. Live by the gun- die by the gun". As a female I have, personally, protected myself from an in-home invasion. There is no police record as I never called them. No crime was committed. Aside from that, in an unrelated incident, my BIL is dead. He was murdered at the hands of Chicago thugs her in Minnesota, that we invited her due to our liberal state benefits. Have you ever had your home power 'mysteriously' go off during a trial? How about your phone connection? Did you ever experience seeing, repetitively, a car at the end of the street during school bus drop-off time whilst the trial was taking place and your kids are grade school age? Welcome to my life. Would you deny me protection just because you've never needed it? Oh, I'm female.
Ah, Chicago. Next to Detroit and D.C., the city that best represents the worst of liberal America. Crooked politicians and no end of government money and regulations. The entitlement society and ghettos created by the left have created a cesspool of violence. And what, of course, does the left want to fix the problem they created? More government money and rules. Thousands of Chicagoans have died while Obama sat in the state legistlature, US Senate and White House -- doing nothing to correct the problems that liberals have created. Kids are dying in the ghettos, Obama, because they have no fathers, no jobs, no education, no family -- not because they're are too many guns. Time for some tough love.
