WarCry - Seven Dead, 34 Hurt In Weekend Shootings In Chicago - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Chicago no longer has the toughest gun laws in the country. Regarding handguns, they have the same laws as the rest of the state. That was part concealed carry law in 2013, eliminating "home rule" laws regarding handguns. It doesn't matter, though, because regardless of what gun laws are in place or not, it's still illegal to shoot people in almost all circumstances.

Where are Jackson, Sharpton and Obama in condemning this violence or don't black lives matter unless a white cop is involved? The silence from this trio of racial demagogues is deafening. All 3 are eager to stir the pot if a white cop is involved but they never seem to care about black lives if it's blacks killing blacks.
