    The pen is mightier than the gun. (?)

    I guess the shooters are just exercising their Second Amendment rights and right of revolution.

    Gun, readily available, used in an argument, another Human Being dead. The shooter, a retired police captain, someone trained to keep his cool and expect that of others. What chance does any tom, dick or harry have lugging a gun around and coming across a situation they don’t like? Second Amendment, why is the part about a well regulated militia always left out by those that use it to bolster their argument that they should be allowed a gun, in public, to protect their home etc.? Former police officers are generally unpopular in prison populations. Let’s everyone follow this case, see if he is let off, or sent to prison.

    Tigger, without undo offense, due to actual facts and crime statistics, get off the “Chicago kick”, and move to Miami, where gun law is lax, and your are MUCH more likely to find bullets in your behind, or elsewhere. You can go to Tampa, settle in with a nice bag of popcorn at the flicks, and also be pulling lead out of your chest, oops, I’m sure as an ex-cop, that shooter was using copper jacketed hollow points, so just kiss it all off.

    Guns do not die, Bennett. THe number of police officers shot in the line of duty is lowest since 1887. The US murder rate is at a 40 year low. Violent crime is at a 40 year low. Too bad we’re not allowed to call Bennett a moron for being a fear mongering left fringer.

    Tiresome Tigger, you realize that you guys won, don’t you? Handguns are legal in Chicago. Not that gang members were waiting for the law to change. Of course, if knowing the other guy is likely to be carrying is supposed to curb violence instead of increasing it, why are there so many gang shootings in Chicago?

    Even if you have a felony conviction, it’s easy enough to hop on the Skyway & buy a gun in Indiana, where there are no background checks on private sales.

    @dtroutma

    In Chicago, like everywhere else, crime rates go up in areas where incomes go down. Chicago doesn’t even make the top ten list of cities with the highest murder rates. When you get your information from sources that focus on GOP talking points, you tend to look like a Tigger.

    Vast majority of gun deaths are suicides. I’d be fine with outlawing them if barbiturates could be sold over the counter again, so people who need an out have one.

    ^The true issue is that the vast majority of HOMICIDES are committed with handguns, period. When it comes to homicides against police officers, the statistic is even MORE convincing that handguns are the too.. BTW, in a 10 year period, over 30 officers were MURDERED using cars as the weapon, more than “blunt weapons”. “Edged weapons” also can’t compete with handguns in attacks on armed police.

    Homicide rate in Mexico, where guns are strictly regulated: 24 per 100,000 in 2011 (latest I could find). I don’t know if this is from guns alone, or all-inclusive.
