    Instead of making a sarcastic comment, I'll just point out that Chicago has some of the most broad and powerful gun control laws in the country and one of the worst crime and murder rates to boot.

    Sad – we have one life, one chance to live life. Why take it away from someone and yourself over pain and/or anger?

    A sarcastic comment would have been better because you are WRONG. Chicago is FULL of guns and has NO gun control laws. They were allowed to expire (most notably for assault weapons). Since then, murder rates have tripled. So get your facts straight first. Here's another fact – the crime/murder rates have also skyrocketed since the state has turned a blind eye to all the ILLEGALS here.

    Chicago required those powerful laws because of the violent nature of the city. Just because the laws were introduced doesn't meet the people would change, they just had to hid them harder. Having to do so has probably slowed down the killings but it wouldn't have stopped them. If a law to fight a war in a City that is notorius for being violent. Lets make more movies and TV shows about gangsters and killing to help desensitize and glorify killing to keep the real life violence going. It's a shame the US has the most murders by gun in the whole world.

    Laura, Chicago does have gun control laws.The crime and murder rate is mostly citizens and not illegals as you assume. You from Arizona?

    You cannot lawfully carry a gun in Chicago. I believe it is state wide, because my Indiana friends always knew not to carry in Illinois.

    It would be easy to assume there are no gun control laws given the crimes committed with guns, but you can say the same for the rest of our God blessed country, now couldn't you.

    No gun control in Chicago?

    Since 1982, Chicago has banned the private ownership of handguns and rifles.....
