  1. There are a lot of very bad people in this country that have no respect for life. Like street drugs and other illegal items guns can be had if a person wants one. Terrorist are also out in our country that want us dead. The politicians who want gun control are very well protected when they work and then go home to there high end well protected neighborhoods. Guns do not kill people. Spoons and forks do not make people fat ! There are millions of law abiding people who own guns to protect themselves. Any politician who wants to disarm us will be voted out. Never forget it is our right to bare arms ! You will never see gun violence at a gun show. Over forty five thousand people were killed on our highways last year and many of them were drunk drivers. Lets ban alcohol ! Not a peep will be heard over that. Wake up America. People in washington want to control us.

  2. I believe the entire premise of this article is flawed. Guns are not outlawed in Chicago see McDonald V Chicago. The Supreme Court up held Heller allowing Chicago citizens to keep and bare arms under the 2nd Amendment under a 5-4 ruling. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/29/us/29scotus.html?_r=0 J.C.
