Illinois Governor Pat Quinn (D) is supporting statewide "restrictions" on .50 caliber rifles and bans on "assault weapon" and "high capacity" magazines because of the violence in heavily gun-controlled Chicago.

Did he mention anything about Criminal control?
Just how many of those murders were committed with .50 caliber rifles?
what about all of the other anti-gun laws already in place - aren’t they working??
Criminals don’t follow laws. That’s why we came up with a name for them: criminals!
So this dope of a governor, like all liberals, is offering a cure that has absolutely no relation to the disease.
.50 cal is good for a headline.
Because everyone knows the weapon of choice for an inner city gang thug is a huge Barrett .50 rifle with a scope.
So, does this mean there are no laws today in Chicago against injuring or killing another person? When they make gunz illegal, all this killing will stop because there will finally be a law against it? /s
Will they pass laws against rocks, sticks, knives, chainsaws, hammers, etc.?
If they would ban even larger caliber, that would really stop the bad guys. Should go after 20mm and 40mm cannon as well.
99% of Chicago’s problems could be solved with one simple societal change:
Women, require men to marry you before getting sex.
How about sending in the national guard or military troops to the southside and implementing night time curfews? I don’t care if the people there whine about their loss of freedom and being in a lockdown mode. The rest of America and, for that matter, the folks in the other parts of Chicago are sick of that area being turned into an American Beirut and Baghdad.
LMAO... Does this idiot think this will stop gang violence and their use of assault weapons?
Of course he doesn’t! It’s just an excuse to confiscate.
They could stop the gun violence by giving away guns..................
The U.S. is third in the world in murders. Take out Chicago, Washington,Detroit and New Orleans and we are fourth from the bottom.
All four cities have been ruled by Democrats. All four have former mayors convicted in federal court of criminal offenses. And are near bankrupt.
We have a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem.And that mental health problem is liberalism.
No, and neither did ne mention the DemocRat attack on the black family that has left millions of black children without a stable father in the house.
But you can use one to shoot through a tank or shoot down an airliner at 30,000 feet!
Listen up gangbangers, your assault weapons are about to be banned. Kindly refrain from killing using these weapons. Mkay...thanks.
