    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.
