Ha, Ha, Ha, I Guess This Website Is As Stupid As The Fool Who Shot Those 5 People !
But, Then Again, I'm From South Chicago Where Most Of The People Are Being Shot & Killed--So What Does Street-Preacher Know About What Goes On In The Streets Of Chicago's South, North, East & West Sides ?
And Because The "Jesuits" Already Have This Website By The Throat, I'm Expecting This Posted Comment--As Many Of My Previous Posted Comments--To Be Removed By The "Jesuit(ic)" moderator[s]-alpha-thru-omega On This TRUE-GOD FORSAKEN website !
I Know That Corner Near THE UPTOWN BAPTIST CHURCH Very, Very Well.
That Uptown Neighborhood Is So Full Of Poverty & Ignorance That It Reminds Me Of The City Of Nazareth During The Time Of Jesus Christ.
I Feel So Sorry For The Poor Lost Souls Who Live On The Streets, Alleys & Bushes In &-Or Around UPTOWN BAPTIST CHURCH--Some Can't Even Discern Their Right Hand From Their Left--Just Like In The City Of Nineveh During The Times Of Jonah.

Kind like quoting an AARP article to support Obama care, you know what I mean? Also, research by economist John Lott and David Mustard published in a book titled "More Guns, Less Crime:Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws" PROVE the link through detailed analysis of the crime rate being lower in right-to-carry areas, using data state by state and in various counties. In Kennesaw Georgia a law mandating homeowners to own a gun drastically reduced the overall crime rate and there wasn't a murder in a city with the third largest university in the state for the first 25 YEARS after the law was passed. Stop living in a fantasy world and heed by the previous post by non concealed weapons. Washington DC, Detroit, Chicago, have some of the toughest gun laws in the country and also share some of the highest murder rates. You have the biggest proof right in front of you that GUN CONTROL laws don't work and you blame the NRA?
Jim, you REALLY think the guns in these crimes are purchased legally, in a store?! Wow... Real slow now: law abiding citizens abide by the laws. Criminals are not law abiding citizens and do not abide by the law. The answer isn't more laws; it might be a return to biblically directed punishment which was judiciously and swiftly carried out!
Effective gun control, you no doubt drop the kill rate. It is physically impossible to kill the same number of people with a knife as it is with an assault weapon.
The only people who are making money of this flood of guns supported by Posse Comitatus (organization) (concealed weapons doesn't make society safer!) are the gun manufacturers. They truly know that state legislators are easily bribed, or even so stupid to believe the NRA's propaganda. Full Show: United States of ALEC.
But Chicago has some of the most strict gunlaws how could this happen? Is it because criminals don't follow the law to begin with? Will be praying for the victims and the gunman to get saved for that matter.
