    Gee, I thought Chicago was one of those gun free zones.

      It is, and it is the hardest place in the USA to legally acquire a handgun – so ONLY the bad guys have guns; but it is nice to see that, for the most part, they shoot and murder each other.

        Isn’t that always the case that regardless of gun control and bans the “bad guys” are always well armed?

          Gun control is put in place for one reason only, to criminalize legal gun owners
