    Another sad story from Chicago

    "How could this have happened in a place that has the most restrictive gun control laws in the country?"

    Likely because it is adjacent to a place that does not have restrictive gun control laws. See Mexico, Republic of.

    • As long as people like Holder and Obama supply guns to those outside the law within our country or outside our great country no one is safe.

      As Obama and Holder found out, and fool or fools can distribute guns in another country and then have the same authorities in our country turn a blind eye while those weapons are transported back to our country to kill others.

      Another example of Obama keeping the down trodden down and destroying this countries morale fabric.

      Supported of course by those set to socialize this great nation.

    • "Likely because it is adjacent to a place that does not have restrictive gun control laws. See Mexico, Republic of."

      So using your logic, because the gun laws of Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missori, and Indiana are not as restrictive as the gun laws of Chicago, then that is the reason that the death by gun rate in Chicago is so high.

      Further if these other jurisdictions would make their gun laws as restrictive as the Chicago gun laws, then the death by gun rate in Chigago would go down.

      Honestly, is that your logic?

      Not trying to pass judgement.

      Just trying to understand your logic.

      • Not at all Froggie. If they are going to work, we need national restrictions. Do you know why Virginia is largest supplier of guns to criminals on the East Coast? Because it has a loophole that allows criminals to buy guns at gun shows. Criminals drive from Florida and New York to buy guns in Virginia. Probably Chicago too.

        Let me try your logic: Send more AR-15s to Chicago and the death by gun rate will go down. Is that what you think?
