Editorial Hissy Fit Warning.
Chicago’s next mayor should use his bully pulpit much more to push through better gun laws, especially in Springfield. As we said before, Chicago and Illinois need a vigorous champion of common-sense gun control, someone as willing to be as identified with the cause as former Mayor Michael Bloomberg was in New York.
There’s not shortage of smart ideas to reduce the number of illegal guns. Illinois should license gun dealers and create stronger penalties for people who fail to report lost or stolen guns or disregard the state’s new background check law. Congress should require universal background checks, nationwide, and crack down on gun trafficking.

So, even when they were given “special status” to do almost what they wanted about guns, crime is not going down (other than in possible cooked stats.) And their solution is to ask not only for more Gun Control but to have a major like Michael Bloomberg in NY…a NY that has seen an increase in the number of violent crime after the passage of the SAFE law which the politicians swore over a stack of Bibles, Bhagavad Gitas and Qurams, that crime was going to pretty much disappear?
And the killings will continue as long as the people keep voting for the same politicians that are sending them to the morgue.
And they will blame us.

Uh oh… You misspelled Qur’an! FATWA! FATWA!
And yet since the state enacted concealed carry, the crime rate is slowly but surly starting to come down. But more gun control has to be the answer because, GUNS….
It’s funny really. Some crimes, such as muggings and break ins have gone down since CCW was enacted. Only gang member on gang member crime has gone up, and of course these people don’t have CCW permits or FOIDs. As a former Chicago-bubble resident, I don’t know what else Chitown could do gun wise to reduce the gang violence issue. But that really isn’t the point now, is it?
So the biggest, bestest plan is to license gun dealers? Does that mean the gun dealers are currently not licensed? Or will this just be licensing of those dealers that deal in illegal guns?
BTW – just what is an “illegal gun”? Did it merely run a stop sign, or did it jump the turnstile on the El? Maybe not file its income tax return for the past three years?
PS – next time can you find a source that knows the difference between “there” and “their” and “they’re”?
Of course we’re to blame… Nothing about the black on black, black on hispanic or vice versa violence in Chiraq… Nope, not a word… sigh
