    Boy, those strictest-in-the-nation gun laws are really working well: http://cbs2chicago.com/local/chicago....2.810166.html

    No wonder, city hall is fighting so hard to keep their current rules
    Guns don't kill people. Drivers on cell phones do.

    "Nearly 125 Shot Dead In Chicago Over Summer
    Total Is About Double The Death Toll In Iraq"

    This has to be a mistake......Guns are banned in Chicago.

    I'd be willing to bet that about 119 of thosedeaths were gang related, between rival gangs.

    Fine by me.

    Just because 30+ people were shot in a weekend earlier this year doesn't mean their handgun ban isn't working... it's just a question of how you define the term "working"...

    Do any gun laws ever work? As long as there is a demand, there WILL be a supply.

    As a kid I grew up in Chicago. This was before the gun bans but since we didn't have money buying guns was out of the question anyhow. On the other hand we could make one in about 15 minutes. They weren't real accurate but if you stuck one in somebody's belly it didn't have to be. I wonder if this technology is lost forever, what with the bans and all.
