Good thing guns or banned over there or it could have been even MORE!

Oh wait, it is already illegal to shoot and murder people. People need to realize that only the good guys that follow the laws are the only ones who obey these laws…

Chicago has some of the¬†strictest¬†gun laws in the US- from wikipedia- “Some municipalities, most notably Chicago, require that all firearms be registered with the local police department.[89] Chicago does not allow the registration of handguns, which has the effect of outlawing their possession, unless they were grandfathered in by being registered before April 16, 1982″

    Ten people were killed and at least 44 others were shot across the city Friday night into early Monday, including a baby girl who suffered a graze wound to the neck when gunfire erupted at a Near West Side barbecue.

    fucked up. when will people realize that criminals dont follow the law, and therefore by banning handguns, that wont stop the criminals, they will still have them, but us law abiding citizens cant! i didn’t know it was that bad in chicago. jersey is a rough state, we can purchase handguns, but there is like a 6 month waiting period and you have to go through all kinds of applications and approvals to get one, and they don’t allow any carry permits. unless you’re law enforcement, you can’t have a weapon outside of your property unless its unloaded, in a locked case, and in the trunk of the car. its bullshit.
