    How are those new gun laws working out for you? Yeah, the ones implemented to circumvent the SCOTUS ruling...

    Seems like someone didn't get the memo...

    I am not suggesting that this story would have a different ending had they not passed the new laws following the recent SCOTUS ruling, the young man would still be dead. The point instead is, no matter how punitive the law, it will only be the law abiding citizens who are effected. The criminals will continue to leave their homes with their guns assembled.

    Only the law abiding pay attention to gun laws.

    Criminals, gangs? Not at all.

    I sure wouldn't live in Chicago.

    More people dying from gunshot wounds as Chicago marks 400 homicides
    28 July,`17 - Four years ago, Chicago didn't record 400 homicides until just before Thanksgiving Day. The city has already passed that mark this year. Chicago is on pace to have a deadlier year than 2016, when gun violence reached levels not seen in 20 years, according to data kept by the Tribune. While fewer people have been shot this year, more of them are dying from their wounds.

    Seven years to move a thread. That has got to be some kind of record...



    Though to be fair, in 2010 I'm not sure the Law and Justice System forum existed...
