Like Gun laws have ever worked in Chicago. Must be those law abiding gang bangers buying there guns legally at all the gun shows in Indiana, yea right.

And as if right on cue comes the flat-earther response. Incredible.

When Chicago makes gun laws restricting the purchase and possession of firearms but its neighbors don't have the same laws, then Chicago's gun laws can't have the effect they are intended to have. We have the same problem here in Mexico where thanks to the incredibly lax gun laws in the USA, straw buyers manage to smuggle over a quarter million firearms a year into Mexico so violent organized criminals can supply U.S. citizens with recreational substances stupidly banned in their country. A win-win for the gringos but not for the Mexicans.

In Chicago, banning firearms easily acquired in neighboring states has the same effect and feeds the interests of police agencies who depend on bloated budgets while also making profits for the firearms industry. Another win-win for special interests but not for the people of Chicago.

It's not a matter of law enforcement but of bad and poorly applied laws. Gun control must be nationwide to work, and the 2nd Amendment is archaic and intentionally misinterpreted, but apparently a polarized, divided and dumbed down populace is incapable of fixing this and numerous other archaic, dysfunctional and broken laws and policies. Another symptom of the USA's heartbreaking decline.

It's extremely disappointing to see you treat the matter with so little comprehension.

More Good Guys with Concealed Guns = More Violent Crime
