    Or did you think gangbangers can't drive to the same gun shows that you go to?

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".

      You cannot regulate an island of safety in the middle of the wild, wild west. And the more I hear these specious arguments here and elsewhere for why ANY new gun regulations are completely futile, the more my thinking on this issue moves from gun control to "Yes, it's time to fulfill their worst fears and TAKE AWAY THEIR GODDAM GUNS!"

      And I am a person who was utterly indifferent to this issue until Wayne LaPierre and other gun nuts (including those here) started unloading The Crazy in December.

    •  Chicago is probably uniquely vulnerable to this (3+ / 0-)

      for many factors.  I'll leave the socio-economic to others more educated on Chicago but, as to gun access, Chicago has always been an urban city surrounded by highly rural and conservative areas, an island unto itself, unlike the Northeast or the West Coast's gentle wave of blue (broken up at points, of course).  I mean, really, 45 minutes to Indiana on a good day?  So anything regulations regarding anything that can fit in the back of a car easy to disregard.  Same as DC and its now-dead gun laws.
