There are hopes a levy will reduce attacks in the President's adopted city, although he has been largely silent on gun control.

I am sure they are just waiting to become honest upright citizens. Last week an obituary here was mourning the loss of "An Aspiring Hip Hop Artist"..... Ever notice that they are "Aspiring Rappers" "Noted Dog Breeders" or "Aspiring Hip Hop Artists"?? Never seem to see "An Aspiring Electrician" or "Aspiring Carpenter" getting killed at 3 or 4am leaving behind several kids with different women that they don't support anyhow.

Not making any excuses, but when you hardly know who your daddy is, are told you're too stupid, too poor, too anything to succeed; and instead of 'living' somewhere you "stayz" here n there, you have no concept of 'future'. So, you live for today only, quit school, hang-out on the street, learn street coulture, and become a hoodlum. Our society is cultivating criminals and loafers by telling Blacks they are victims. This is what happens when children are discouraged from bettering themselves.

There has been no slavery in the U.S. for over a hundred years; and no White folks alive today ever 'kept' slaves. There have been myriad 'programs' to assist Blacks' progress and all it has done is to perpetuate their victim mentality. And you-know who is responsible for this? For the most part, Black 'leaders' and a liberal educational systems and teachers. Next is a welfare system that rewards women for spawning illegitimate children, and neatly folded into that is the Black men who mate with many (willing)women, and then disappear.

Why do newer immigrants like Asians do so well? Many of them come here with very little and within a few short years they are owning businesses. They do not let the job market dictate their success or failure. If they can't get a job, they become entrepreneurs. A few smart Black folks have caught-on to this, but Amway and Tupperware is not the answer.

What's the answer? A great start would be to revamp our public education system, placing more emphasis on succeeding in life AFTER school. Kids of all ages need to be taught more useful, practical things to help them with what they will encounter in the real world. Aiming them for college only is a recipe for disappointment when half of them won't make it that far. Learning what it takes to do well at a job interview, manage money, how to set up an economically operating household, and how to save a little money for the future are vital concepts for young people. If all you know is to blow your food stamps on some lobster, and sell the rest at the convenience store for beer, weed and rims for your SUV, you're not really living the American dream.

internet ammo sales will just skyrocket in that area. I am sure gangbangers actually BUY their guns and ammo from licensed dealers.

Then IL will just pass a law banning the shipping and receiving of ammo and firearms from outside the state unless you have a business license.

That would violate the commerce clause of your constitution, as well as the second and 14th amendments.

It was not the State of IL that passed the tax...it was Cook County. So if you are going to buy a gun you go to the next County...big deal. I hope any gun stores in Cook County realize that...they should refuse to "collect".

Everything you said is the truth. In Buffalo New York the graduation rate for black males is 20% and half of those are graduated only because they were socially promoted. There is a mindset there that acting like a productive member of society is being an Uncle Tom or Acting White. It's not College anyhow.... It's "Kaa-Litch"..... Think on the bright side though..... Becoming a funeral director in a place like Chicago, Buffalo, Cleveland or any major city will give you all sorts of business burying those idiots.
