It also completely ignores the real issue which shows basically a direct correlation with anti depressants and planned mass shootings in America.

ActuallyI'm not sure that second sentence is completely true. At least there's less of an immediate danger from the car-grabbers.
Or maybe send you a ticket when your car is used in something illegal. Or maybe when you do turn senile they know that the 20 assault guns in your basement could become a risk, and when your family comes to get them and see that there are 19 they have a way to know that the Mexican maid you've been porking has taken one with her.

But graboids are fine as well.

Assault guns and magazine clips.

It's funny how quickly some of you turn on one of your own when he voices something that's not part of the script.

You're either 100% with us or against us.  We'll throw you back over the wall then make you pay for it.

Well, that's really the problem, isn't it?

I watched the gun control townhall hosted by CNN last night. Anderson Cooper did a surprisingly decent job . Questions from the audience were split between pro 2nd Amendment people and pro gun control people. Chris Kyle's wife was the first to ask a question - and Obama reluctantly had to admit that violent crime is at historic lows.

Obama kept repeating that the reason strict gun control laws in Chicago haven't prevented violence is because guns are being brought in from places like rural Indiana. If access to guns is the problem, and they are so easy to get in rural Indiana - why aren't people being shot in droves in rural Indiana? Shouldn't the violence at the supposed source of the problem be as bad as, or worse than Chicago?

Are you honestly too stupid to figure this out for yourself?

You don't have to go to rural Indiana. The state line is right in what most people still consider the city. And yes there are plenty of shootings in East Chicago IN and Hammond IN not to mention Gary.

Do "plenty" of shootings translate into the violence in Chicago? Does the breakdown of who is committing these shootings, and the lack of similar violence in neighborhoods across the country, tell us that maybe access to guns isn't the problem?

It's surreal to watch people dance around the problem and pretend like guns are the issue in Chicago.

In the not too distant past Gary, IN was the murder capital (per capita) of the country.

There is nothing surreal about a lack of geography knowledge, it's pretty common.

Yes, NW Indiana has a lot of poor black and hispanic people that shoot each other with...guns. Gangs are the main problem over here however, access to guns isn't helping. It's very easy to get weapons in Chicagoland. You can take public trans just a few miles and buy it legally. In NYC you have to go way way further (VA is popular) and that makes a difference.
