Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said July 5, 2016, that the Independence Day weekend violence was caused, in part, by "too many guns in the streets of Chicago and too many people willing to use them."

How about way to many feral kids roaming the streets. Of course, they got their guns in Indiana where all the guns exist and the crime rate is low.

The problem wouldn't be a bunch of minorities whose father left their mama the moment he found out that she was pregnant and who were never taught any morals or values.

No, it has to be the guns.

It is almost impossible to legally own a firearm in Chicago proper. In Illinois no one can even touch a gun without first getting a FOID card. Illinois has total background checks and prohibits any interstate firearms transfers except through licensed FFL dealers with the accompanying background check. All of this doesn't seem to slow down the violence committed daily in Chitown. How would more laws make any difference?
