Dictatorship (suppression of law-abiding citizens) must be uniform in order to be effective. That is the message of these "media" personalities.

Oh I get it take away all the guns owned by law abiding citizens in the state of Texas and the Chicago inner city thugs wouldn´t have any. Good grief these liberals, progressives are so stupid it´s astonishing. They will say anything to further their progressive ideology even without realizing they are making fools of themselves. I´m beginning to think Shakespeare had it wrong first get rid of all the elite law professors. The attack on the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment by so called law professors continues unabated.

It is illegal to possess an unregistered firearm in Chicago, so the law abiding register or go without. The criminals don´t care about laws by definition.

I believe the lefties understand this but have ulterior motives.

Mandatory Sentences for gun shootings is the only answer... 10 yrs for 1st offense, 25 yrs for 2nd. Period.

"But the difficulty is that outlying areas outside of Chicago and in other states, neighboring Illinois, don´t have strict gun control laws, and the guns easily flow into Chicago because of that."

And that´s why Chicago has a murder rate that is equal to the murder rate of outlying areas and other states...oh, wait.

Criminals and gangs will always find a way. After all, they´re criminals and gangs, right?

Much of the gun violence is battle between the blacks and mexicans fighting over turf to sell drugs, run prostitution, etc...

Criminals and gangs won´t be bothered with trying to register their guns like Senator Dick Durbin seems to believe (as noted in his comments to NRA at Senate hearings the other day).

Dear NBC,

Consider the following. The level of criminal activity in any society will rise until it reaches the intolerance level of a majority of its citizenry. Chicago has a murder problem because its citizens are willing to accept murder as a daily event. They continue to return elected officials to office who do not do anything to address the problem. Their state has gutted the statute regarding capital punishment. Their legislators (lead primarily by the urban legislators from upstate) refuses to enact any legislation that will allow their citizens to carry a weapon (concealled or open) for personal protection.

Chicago has a population of 2,710,000 +/- and a murder rate of 1 per 5,400 population. The population of Houston, Texas metroplex is 5,628,000 +/-. Houston reported 216 murders in 2012 yielding a murder rate of 1 in 26,000.

Texas is not known for its tolerance of criminal activity. As one of its native sons once said, "We have the death penalty and we use it." But Texans also realize that the responsibilities of law enforcement consist primarily of sorting out the debris after a violation has occured, and therefore, Texans are supported by their state to take appropriate measures to insure their personal security.

So NBC, being that you claim superior enlightenment and knowledge over us mere serfs of flyover land, at what point will you concede that gun restrictions favor the criminal element at the expense of the law abiding citizen? How much additional lawlessness should the citizens of Illinois tolerate before holding their elected officials accountable for the statutory impediments to personal safety that were erected in the name of public safety?

Thanks OP for what is an obvious and potentially very effective argument against a pathetic democrat talking point for gun control----"restriction don´t work in Chicago because the guns are smuggled in from out of state."

Approximately 1 million illegals sneak across the border each year. They will gleefully pack in weapons to fulfill demand for a burgeoning black market if a national gun ban is imposed.

It appears that the only group dimmer than congress is the news media, but they are catching up. Why not set up border checkpoints around Chicago city limits and search cars going in for guns? Better yet, burn the government created slum neighborhoods. Deport all the gang members back to their respective countries or tribal homes. This gun control nonsense is like blaming the hammer when you hit your thumb.

What is so different about Chicago? NYC doesn´t have your gang problems. Chicago has a century-old culture of political corruption still dominated by whites (yup - most other super corrupt cities are all-black affairs).

This corruption makes for a corrupt and weakened police force - one that is unable or unwilling to quash the highly-lucrative drug trade and the gangs that trade in those drugs.

Get your police in shape (and off the take) enough to get rid of the gangs. Your shootings will drop by 80%.

If you expect part of a lottery winner’s fortune because you’ve already shared a long personal and business relationship, always remember: Get it in writing. That was the reluctant decision of a state judge Friday, who cited state law in refusing to freeze the assets of Pedro Quezada, the Clifton man who won the $338-million Powerball jackpot last spring, pending the outcome of a trial to determine if his former live-in girlfriend is entitled to a share of the winnings. Ines Sanchez and Quezada lived together for 10 years and shared ownership of a grocery store in Passaic,

MARIETTA, Ga. — An 18-year-old man accused of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller during a robbery attempt in coastal Georgia twice counted down from five and threatened the baby before the deadly shot, his teenage co-defendant testified Thursday. Dominique Lang took the stand at the murder trial of De’Marquise Elkins, who is accused of shooting 13-month-old Antonio Santiago on March 21. Police say the 15-year-old Lang was an accomplice, and he is also charged with murder and will be tried at a later date.

The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?
