It seemed you were concerned with the safety of the law abiding people who followed the law being injured by those who break the law. So you ignored the reason the gun control laws failed in Chicago, why? Never mind, I think the answer is abundantly clear.
Right---CRIMINALS DON'T OBEY LAWS!!!!<<<<<<<<<<<<<HEY!!!!!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Why do these people need full automatic weapons? National Protection and Programs?, FEMA?
I would also question why TSA needs full autos at airports where there are so many people around that could be collateral damage if a few terrorists attacked. In fact I question why SWAT teams and the FBI need full autos. I remember the ridiculousness of the movie "The Gauntlet", but remember some of that happening when Patty Heart was kidnapped(building destroyed by trigger happy cops). And, of course, Bonnie and Clyde's car. WTF? Gun crazy cops and the FBI types who use any chance to expend inordinate amounts of bullets(that we the people pay for!!).
>>Chicago must have a lot of corruption seeing 4 out of the last seven governors were put in prison for it.<< >>The 40 murders per month in Chicago are almost all by criminals, not armed law abiding citizens who went to the dark side. Increase death penalties to all three time burglars on up(.22 to the head within 2 weeks), and the gun crimes will go down, especially if various periods of torture is used as a deterrent for heinous crimes, too. Raid gang houses and take their guns, stop their cars if they look like them and search without worrying about being PC to minorities.<<
If known or suspected gang members can buy guns outside Chicago, then there is a data base problem because they should be in them. There could be a PC problem, too, because sellers should be able to refuse a sale on the looks of the buyer. If they look weird, look like a gang banger(usually Mex or black) or moll(Mex, black, or white girl who looks like one), shifty eyes, extra nervousness, tattoos and piercings, etc. Yes, the dirty word--->>>profiling, should be used to deny sales<<<<, especially just outside big gang cities. Take away the license to sell if the gun is used in a crime within a few months of purchase. >>>>All guns are test fired with the manufacturer keeping the bullets, which should be in a data base for markings, just like the fingerprint data base..<<<<<!!!!
Far better to do those things than infringe on the rights of the law abiding vast majority.
All I want are personal defense weapons like the government has, even if only in 10 shot semi auto versions.
