15 people shot in one night
Well, clearly the only option left is to massively infringe on the rights of Chicago residents.
Criminals follow all applicable gun laws.
well as the illinois legislation would probably say, those people should have notified the police sooner and exercised their right to run away. *sigh*
These shootings were by criminals with illegal guns. The only solution to prevent this from happening again is to take away legally owned guns by law abiding citizens who had nothing to do with this.
makes sense to me

The culture here is very strange when it comes to guns. I've actually come across a fair amount of people who support very minimal gun regulation here, since they recognize that the city's policy has been a total failure for decades. The problem is that no one cares enough to speak up about it. On the other hand though, if you let yourself be overheard by the wrong people talking about shooting or hunting people look at you like they just found out you're a cannibal or something. They can't in their wildest dreams imagine why anyone would want a gun, despite stories like this. I must say I've never heard one this ridiculous before, but the amount of shootings and violent crime spikes dramatically every summer, year after year.
