    Just to make mention of it, the 1934 national firearm act was also pushed through Congress, largely in part because of violence in Chicago during the prohibition years.

    And like the war on drugs, prohibition was another time when the government outlawed things and there was a black market on them.

    I can't help but to ponder the similarities.

    Just sayin'.

    If you commit a murder in Chicago you've got about an 80% chance of getting away with it. The odds do not decrease if/when you commit other murders.

    Obviously it's the guns.

    Things can only get better now that the Chicago police have been ruled to be racists. . . .Didn't someone just accuse them of holding back on enforcment???

    Funny that while Loretta is making her statements about the Chicago cops' shortcomings, their boss, the mayor, is standing right there...as unaccountable as any D hack ever was.

    Gun buy backs are working so well. NBC Chicago presently running a story of train box cars filled with guns. Brought in by gangs.
