this sh*t been going on in chicago forever
tougher gun laws would help
How much tougher should the gun laws be? Besides DC we have the toughest gun laws in the country. Even with these gun laws Chi and DC are still in the top 5 murders per 100k people list.
For 28 years Chicago banned residents from owning a handgun, until the supreme court over-ruled that bill recently. The problem is you got these gun store owners in surrounding suburbs who are selling unlicensed used bangers out the back door in bulk.
Instead of stricter gun laws...which obviously haven't worked for the past 30 years....they need to allow concealed carry. The gangs will always find a way to get the guns, why put the regular law abiding citizens at a disadvantage with these strict gun laws? Make em think twice before they pull it. Look at Phoenix, they have a carry law...damn near everyone down there strapped..and yet they have way less gun crimes then the Chi.
