Banning guns wouldn't accomplish anything. Banning concealed guns might help something, though.

I agree with the first post, but the devil is in the details. Those with mental health issues are prohibited from owning a firearm, yet there is no mechanism to allow for such a check prior to purchase. The mental health professionals do not support a database because they fear it would prevent too many from seeking help. The registration of such people is touchy. The same with those with anger management issues. When is someone "safe" and not to own a firearm much less carry one?

In our state the application for a CCW entails opening the medical history files for review and voluntarily putting your fingerprints into the system, in addition to undergoing training on the laws. The police were at first wary of those with CCWs, but seemed to quickly understand they were more closely checked than the rest of the people they encountered. This is not to say that everyone with a CCW should actually have gotten one, but they were just checked out prior to the encounter.

As an aside, we have had three cases of drivers being shot at in the lasat week or so. I doubt if any of the shooters had a CCW, but none of them should own a firearm.

Illinois is a joke. Chicago, who bans ccw all together has one of the largest crime rates around and it's getting worse with bands of youths going around terrorizing innocent people. They call it wilding...

Banning guns only affects the law abiding as they're the ones that will obey the laws, not the criminals, who will get guns no matter what.

Yeah, well, I think there's a lot of local law enforcement officials that would answer the same to that question.

To prove the first poster's point ....

http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?secti ... id=8210727

Authorities say 18-year-old Darrell Turner, a senior at Gateway High School in Monroeville, dead a short time later at Duke Hospital. He was traveling to Florida for a 7-on-7 football tournament and was staying the night in Durham when the incident happened.

The other victim, Turner's teammate 15-year-old Thomas Woodson, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg area and is in stable condition.

The teen's football coach says the players were eating at Five Guys restaurant when they got into an altercation with a man who then started shooting. He says everyone began to run away, but the two victims were hit in the parking lot. The coach says Turner was shot twice in the back.

The suspected gunman, 22-year-old Gabriel James Gamez of San Antonio, Texas, was arrested around 2 a.m. at a nearby hotel where he was staying. He was apparently in town visiting for a family funeral.

Authorities say Gamez and the teens did not know each other.

Gee, somebody better tell the criminals that there is a hand gun ban in the city of Chicago!!


At least ten people were injured overnight in separate violent incidents around the city, police said.

At 11:40 p.m. in the Douglas Park neighborhood, a 28-year-old woman was shot in the back in the 1800 block of South Albany Avenue, according to a release from police News Affairs. She was listed in guarded condition at Mount Sinai Hospital.

At 11:47 p.m. in the Gage Park neighborhood, an 18-year-old man was shot in the leg in the 3000 block of West 53rd Street. He was listed in stable condition at Mount Sinai.

And another wilding occurrence in Chicago last week....


CHICAGO (CBS) — The teenage robbery mobs are at it again on North Michigan Avenue.

Some 50 young people barged into a Walgreens at Michigan and Chicago on the Magnificent Mile on Tuesday afternoon. They took bottled drinks and sandwiches off the shelves, then ran off, CBS 2′s Suzanne Le Mignot reports.
