Afghanistan is a safer place to be
Our domsetic policies really seem to be making headway in the inner cities. Maybe if we spend just a little bit more......

Yet the military is in Afghanistan instead of Chicago. If Chicago had weather like Los Angeles, it would be the most dangerous city on the planet.

The city's gun control laws are really doing wonders, aren't they?

Are you alluding to how, 2 years ago , Chicago passed an ordinance allowing people to have guns in their homes? And meanwhile, gun crime has increased steadily?

Or were you talking about fantasyland again?

In June, the Supreme Court ruled Chicago's ban violated its citizens' Second Amendment Rights. Long-time Chicago Mayor, Richard Daley, and the Chicago City Council, then reworked the city's laws, making it possible, but extremely expensive and difficult, to obtain a handgun license, clinging desperately to the hope that strict gun control laws would decrease crime in their city.

Seems that both you and the Dems in Chicago are living in fantasyland.

Fact: Chicago relaxed its gun laws

Fact: violent crime gun crime has risen since.

I think I'll go with the facts, which show your implication to be false. You go ahead and go with your yellow journalism, and I'll go with my facts.

<<making it possible, but extremely expensive and difficult, >>

Funny, the rules are the same as here in my City, yet it's neither very hard nor very expensive to get one here. I see the author of your article wasn't content on reporting mere facts, but injected a bit of politics-fueled opinion into his yellow journalism.

Chicago and Washington D.C. still have the strictest gun laws in the nation at the end of the day. Both cities are plagued by severe gun violence. The gun laws do little other than let the criminals have an advantage.

<<Chicago and Washington D.C. still have the strictest gun laws in the nation at the end of the day.>>

And both recently relaxed their gun laws. And both have seen a recent sharp increase in violent crime.

You don't get to cherry-pick facts, buddy. You're the one claiming causation, not me. I realize what gun laws accomplish and what they don't, while you seem content to rely on nothing but a bunch of fallacies and then pit fallacy against fallacy.
