Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner recently signed a new gun control law that imposes harsher penalties on those who bring in guns from out of state to sell and do not have gun-owner ID cards. Illinois already has some of the strictest gun-control laws in the nation however it’s done little to stem the violence.
Last year, marked the deadliest year the city has seen in nearly two decades with a reported 762 homicides.

Seven shot dead – including pregnant mother – in one day in gun controlled Chicago
[Gee… I wonder if there is a connection between “the strictest gun-control laws in the nation” and “the deadliest year the city has seen in nearly two decades”.
Of course there is.
President Trump has been suggesting he will send in troops to put an end to it. I think sending in Federal Marshals to arrest those passing and enforcing gun control laws, followed by self-defense handgun training for the average person, would work far better and be far cheaper.
But these people have spent so much time living in an alternate reality they would rather be killed that face the truth.—Joe]
