    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:rolleyes:)

    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?

    There is an error here in this title. It should correctly state There have been 500 homicides this year in Chicago.

    That's right, homicides. There have been many, many more shootings in which the victims have not died.

    "Through the first seven months of 2012, there were 1,165 nonfatal shooting cases in Chicago, according to police records reviewed by the Tribune. Investigations into 75.9 percent of those cases have been classified as "suspended" because the victims declined to cooperate with police, the statistics show. An additional 4.4 percent of cases have been designated "exceptional cleared closed," meaning police have identified a suspect, but victims have declined to cooperate with a prosecution."
    The above is from this article....http://articles.chicagotribune.com/...ings-chicago-police-homicides-and-other-cases

    Wait for it, chainfire will come and explain why his liberal friends think gun bans are ok. I'm sure he will be able to make sense of his party's actions. :rolleyes:

    Any guesses on how many of the 500 or so murder weapons are getting flushed out of the system by this buy back?

    How does this happen? (sarcastic face)
    I thought taking guns from the law abiding saved lives.
