Are any guns legal in Chicago for the common citizen?
The city's ban lasted until 2010, when the Supreme Court struck it down by a majority vote of 5-4. Two years later, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago struck down as unconstitutional the state's ban on carrying concealed firearms. In 2013, the General Assembly passed a law making Illinois the last state to grant its residents the right to concealed carry. Right now, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco have stricter gun laws on the books, experts say.

Educate yourself.. the internet is there to help.

Did you read my 7 points? Is this a serious question after reading it?
Youve argued that Chicago's tight gun laws havent been effective, and now you argue that tougher sentencing will - are you serious?

The moment you have guns in society, you will have gun violence but I think it's about the quantity," says Overton. "If you have very few guns in society, you will almost inevitably have low levels of violence.

You want your guns, and an end to inner city gun violence too.

yes.


You want to compare japan and it's culture to ours? are you serious?




it's funny, you think banning assault rifles would change our gun homicide rate at all, but don't think holding criminals and dealers responsible for illegal guns would do anything at all.

no, it's not funny, its pathetic and sad.

It's not a business decision. They have an agenda and they are going to highlight the mass shootings that further that agenda. The rest, they will stop talking about the first chance they get.
LOL.....It's a business decision.

Well, you many have a point. Obviously the Japanese culture is not as violent. Americans lack the impulse control, emotional maturity and self-discipline of the Japanese. At least that's what you appear to be implying.
