    Illinois mandates that ALL gun sales at gun shows have a background check.

    Most illegal guns sold to gang members are bought by "clean" people, often girlfriends (the same people who end up carrying drugs so the dealer can't be charged with possession).

    What I find sick is not that a gun was used, but that it took 6 months to arrest these men.  If it was not a gun I would have been a knife or some other weapon.

    But six months? That is the real scandal.

    Stupid question hour starts now and ends in five minutes.

      So the background checks not passed by Congress may not have helped in this case....but the straw purchase legislation not passed by Congress certainly could have.

      If you are smart enough to positively know the climate is not being affected by humans, then you are also smart enough to develop a fusion reactor which runs solely from water and air….so get your ass moving!
