No one disputes the gun crime issue in Chicago, which is horrendous. I would agree that the gun crimes there are not committed by the gun owner who has a permit. However, the guns are coming from somewhere. Usually they are stolen.<quoted text>
Another tragedy. The little girl who performed at Obama's inaugration was killed while hanging out with friends in Chicago.
You'd think if Obama couldn't clean up the guns and violence in his own city, he shouldn't entertain the idea that it's possible to do it in the entire country - just because he decrees it.
If only he had Chicago as a good example to fall back on.
Tragic about that girl who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
You should not poopoo the Presidents concern, which is the concern of most people that something does have to be done, there are no magic wands. If there were no guns, crime would decrease. Period.
No one needs an assault weapon, banning them would be a step in the right direction, along with background checks.
How do you feel about those people who heckled that father who spoke holding the photo of his 6 year old who was murdered at Sandyhook? Is this what we've become in this country?
