Random Tuesday Thoughts

So state Reps. John Fritchey and LaShawn Ford suggested to Governor Quinn that he call in the National Guard to stop gun violence in Chicago. Daley: City Needs Gun Laws, Not The Guard - Chicago Tribune. When has the National Guard ever stepped in to stop gun violence? How do gun laws curb gun violence when the criminals don't buy their guns legally? Seriously.? How about increasing the police force and making them a greater presence and cracking down on gangs? Bringing in the National Guard would be a temporary fix, if that. I'm so glad I moved out of Chicago. The neighborhood I used to live in was starting to get sketchy. One of my daughter's classmates was beaten to death by gangs shortly before we left. Where I live now isn't without crime, but it's much safer than there.

A trophy for the Crosstown Classic? Quest For The 'Cup': Cubs, Sox To Vie For Trophy - Chicago Tribune. This just seems silly to me.

This is just weird...

Here's a thought, let all the legal, law abiding people who can pass a background check be able to carry their own guns and tackle all the jackasses who commit crime with their black market, mob bought, gang stolen guns?

Gun laws don't hurt criminals!
