    Interesting article.

    There's no doubt that it's horrible that this is going on.

    The question is, with gun possession being illegal in Chicago, how can all these kids be getting shot?

    Shows the folly of trying to get criminals to obey the law.

    You pose an interesting question....

    After 30 + years in law enforcement, I came to realize that our "enlightened" legislators, judges, etc. do not have a clue as to the "Why". Nor do they really (as in really) want to know. For the "enlightened" it is far easier (and safer politically) to attack the method, not the reason(s).

    Their careers hinge on rhetoric and more laws with no teeth that really only trample the rights of honest citizens. This type of bureaucratic BS is so the "unenlightened" will feel good even though nothing really changes.

    The Chicago gun ban is a weak attempt to throw a law at a problem.

    It seems any solution to a problem like this has to start with parenting. Being there for your kids to teach them right from wrong.

    How can this happen? you ask.

    It is clearly your fault.

    If you would only let the gun banners confiscate your trap guns the carnage in Chicago would immediately end.
