Impossible ... I don't believe it ... Chicago has a ban on guns!

Wow! Gun control works great.

Especially if you're a criminal. Why don't they ban drugs while they're at it. Oh wait.......

How do these people get guns if they are banned. Doesn't a ban mean that no one can them?

That's how Feinswine's gun control will work; law abiding citizens comply, bad guys don't.

And the left doesn't have the nads to go to war against the bad guys - not when the law-abiding citizenry is the low-hanging fruit.

They are placing a $25 dollar fee on all gun sales. This is to help pay for gun related cost to the city. The legal buyers of firearms are not adding to these cost. The gang and drug dealers are killing each other with stolen firearms. But the Liberals will punish the citizen every time.

The Gary Gun Buyback program starts today.

$50 walmart gift cards for pistols and shotguns

$100 walmart gift cards for "assault weapons"

(and there is an existing AWB in cook county)

another interesting tidbit that doesn't get reported by the news, but only mentioned on a blog by active police officers-Chief of Police Gary McCarthy apparently requested notice of any shooting victims whose life support would be pulled by family members as it would be affecting the now 500+ murder count as if he could insist they keep them on life support until next year so as not to continue pushing his embarrassing body count upwards in 2012. How appalling is that?
