    Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the US.
    Last year in Chicago they had over 3500 people shot and 625 killed. Obviously gun control does not stop violent thugs...

    The only guns that will be confiscated will be registered ones
    THINK about THAT

    Getting rid of guns to stop mass-shootings is like getting rid of cars to stop drunk driving. Actually it would be easier to do the latter.

    In other words, those guns that the law abiding segment of our population have. NOT the crazies or criminals. Lol. Shocking!

    Let me ask you....have you ever heard the argument for why that statement is retarded? If you have, why are you ignoring it and posting
    your dishonest crap? If not...why are you so stupid?

    Well, the point of the matter is that my rights are not contingent on the actions of anyone else, especially criminals who are well known to violate laws and other people's rights.

    If I commit a crime with a gun, then come after me. Until then, you can't assume that I'm a "potential" criminal because I have a gun and confiscate my weapon from me when I have done nothing wrong or broken any laws or violated anyone else's rights or abused my own rights.
