Because gun bans work so well

Five people were wounded as they were apparently waiting for a CTA bus this afternoon in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side. The shooting happened in the 7900 block of South Jeffery Boulevard, said Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
Preliminary reports stated the victims were standing at the corner when someone approached on foot and opened fire, striking them. The gunman then fled in a minivan, said Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala.
Real safe city ya got there, Rahm.
No doubt you'll double down on calls for tougher laws on gun ownership.

Because it'd be too radical to admit the truth.

That gangsta punks don't care about your laws.
That gangsta punks don't care about imprisonment.

Gangsta punks don't care about human life.
Acts like the above are more likely a gang recruitment exercise or the settling of a personal beef.

And it's a widespread, well-fed, deeply entrenched subculture that lives, breathes and controls huge swaths of the greater metro area.

Hi Art,

I don't like cities. I often wonder why people want to pack themselves in like sardines, when there's a big, wide country out there. And if there was to spring up a frontier overnight, I'd be packin' my bags to head there.

Hey Dave -
Agree with your anti-city sentiments entirely.

Hard to think of frontiers in the traditional sense anymore. O'course there's plenty of wilderness to stake a claim to in Detroit, I hear.
