    if there were no guns in Chicago for gang members to steal, then they wouldn't have the guns they need to wreak havoc in the city? That's your argument?

    •  No (0+ / 0-)

      Precisely because there are already severe restrictions in Chicago, they get them by other means. They (or others) will continue steal them (or to a lesser degree use straw purchases) and "rent them" as they do now because there are already severe restrictions on gun sales and ownership in Chicago. So they get them by other means. More regulations on semi automatic rifles will not stop hand gun theft near Chicago or illegal use in Chicago.

      As with the "war on drugs" a demand solution is necessary before (or at least in concert with) a supply solution will work.


    •  What would your plan be? (0+ / 0-)

      I mean a meaningful and constitutional approach to curbing lethal acts committed by criminals using guns? It is a knotty issue.
