Default Gun Control laws working in Chicago!

Since April 1982 it has been illegal to purchase or register any handgun within the city of Chicago. How is that working for you, Chicago?

How do you think they get those guns? From the same people smuggling drugs into the country. If they can't stop the drugs, they can't stop the guns.

Saying gun control laws work is like saying Dana White is a gentleman.

It doesn't help when you can get guns all around the place ... Gun Laws work well when you can't get them or it is very hard to get them. Since you can access guns legally and illegally pretty much anywhere in the US, you are still going to have gun violence .. America has one of the highest gun-related crime or death rates in the world ... Here in Canada, we have strict laws on guns, but the gun-related violence is on the rise .. most of the guns that are causing the crimes are illegal guns from the US. it is so difficult to get them here that the ones who go through the trouble to get them are the ones who want them for hunting/sport etc ...

Has anyone else noticed that the highest crime rates seem to be in the areas with the strictest gun control laws? I don't think that's a coincidence.

I'm all for gun control.


Everyone please turn your guns and ammo over to me and I'll proceed to take over the world using your guns against you.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms,disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.~ Thomas Jefferson
