    Well said, people that think gun control will stop gun violence are living in fantasy land, Chicago has some of the toughest gun control laws there are and they have one of the highest murder rates as well. Not many criminals care about gun laws or go and register and complete the required paperwork out, prior to going out and robbing a bank for example the only people gun control laws effect is the legal gun owners plain and simple.
    Not to get involved too much in this, but pointing to Chicago as an answer as to why gun control doesn't work doesn't make much sense, as there aren't near as strict laws outside of Chicago. It's not like they have to go through a countriy's boarder and customs to get an illegal firearm, they just have to leave Cook County. It's super easy to get a gun in Chicago because no one outside of Chicago wants to reciprocate the gun control laws, and it's one of those issues that doesn't really get solved unless everyone is on the same page.

    Again, not trying to get my opinion involved, but there are other examples of gun control not working that you can point to other than the one that makes the least amount out of sense.

      What specifically are the tough laws that don't apply outside of Cook county?

        A lot of the regulations in Chicago/Illinois aren't in Indiana. There's a ban on assault rifles in Cook County, for example, but no law at all against them in Illinois or Indiana. Need a permit to purchase guns of any sort in Illinois, but not in Indiana. You don't need to register a gun in Indiana.

        Might as well tell you my opinion, I've got multiple guns, I enjoy going shooting, and I don't think a nationwide gun ban will ever happen in this country, and I don't want it to. I think some gun control laws should exist, I also think there are some that should be repealed. But pointing to Chicago is a terrible example, of course it's not gonna work when you can drive 30 minutes and buy an assault rifle with very few questions asked.

          What's an assault rifle that you Joe blow citizen can go buy anywhere? Also I didn't realize Chicago had a rifle problem.

          How many is a "few questions" (as if the number of questions is relevant). There's like 20 questions on form 4473 plus the background check.
