Right on Schedule, Chicago
Last Year the Windy city, with some of the toughest gun laws in place, blew away just over two people per day with gun violence (more than we lost in the desert war last year) and things are right on schedule if at least two more are killed today.

Here's My Take: "A guy on TV said that the guns coming into Chicago from surrounding states. And the stolen guns end up in Chicago. He was advocating that The government ban all military Non sporting weapons. He said that all weapons with detachable magazines, A stock with a handle. and of course simi autos." MYT

Here's My Take: "While the source of the guns is probably correct and I don't really see a use for the semi-auto weapons more gun control is not going to solve their problem. I haven't walked the streets there but imagine most of the problem is from hand guns, most of them stolen. Anybody have better info on that?

The focus has to be on execution of law and significant punishment actually being applied for violation of the laws they already have by both police and some sort of leadership in the neighbor hoods themselves. I'd think they could fill a dumpster or tow with guns if they had something like the stop and frisk law used in NY. There is a reason Chicago has more murders than NY and California, two larger Cities, combined.

I realize the leadership is going to be hard to find. There are a lot of good people living in those places but I don't think many who have the skills and drive that could be applied to solving the problem live there any longer than they have to.

Maybe set up a football stadium and let the gangs have a winner take all war within it. The police could pare the worst of the survivors down a lot easier after that. Just make sure it is not a day the Waste Management is off." MYT

Here's My Take: "I used to live in Park Forest (about 60 years ago) when that town and Levittown were the model communities for the soldiers returning for WWII and other suburbanites. I hear it has changed a bit." MYT
