While everyone waits in anticipation of the Supreme Court's ruling on McDonald v. Chicago case, with most believing the Court will strike down Chicago's handgun ban, Chicago's political elite and the Chicago media are looking at what laws should be passed.
"If the ban is overturned, we will see a lot of common-sense approaches in the city aimed at protecting first responders," Daley said. "We have to have some type of registry. If a first responder goes to an apartment, they need to know if that individual has a gun."
City official are supposed to be looking at other large city and state's firearm laws to determine what laws they would enact.
Yeah, the strict gun control of California, Washington D.C., and New York City really seem to be working. Less guns, more crime right?? I mean if the proposed laws actually worked then Chicago should be the safest city in the U.S.
When does common sense come into play. A majority of shootings happen in "Gun Free" zones, with Chicago being the largest of these zones. Just this past weekend, 54 people were shot and 10 died. This is impossible. It can not happen. This is a "Gun Free" zone. There are laws against guns. But I guess if the criminals did not heed the law against murder, attempted murder, assault, robbery, or rape then breaking one more law is not going to stop them.
I mean come on, some gangbanger who decides to kill a rival banger, steals a gun or buys a gun illegally, who is probably a felon already so simply possessing a firearm is illegal, is going to suddenly realize that the Chicago gun laws are the one law he will not ignore.
The Chicago political machine is trying to "fix" stupid, and it cannot be done.
I will end this with a quote to describe Mayor Daley...
"Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish." Euripides
