Re: “Under the Gun

Great article! The Mayor and his team of lackies are only interested in their gun control ordinance for their own personal political gain. No one disagrees that violence is bad and that includes gun violence. When one looks at the statistics surounding gun violence, one wonders if there are any laws against guns at all. Thousands of people, literally, have been killed by jerk-offs with guns in Chicago since 1982. If there was ever a tooth-less ordinance this is it.

Big praise to Willlie Cochrane who explained how his own father taught him how to handle and respect weapons. Maybe the mayor and his henchmen should court the NRA and start a program in our schools, funded by the NRA and other gun advocates, to teach students how to handle, clean, shoot and disarm a weapon properly. For me, I'm not big on guns, but I have a 2 year old son and one day he may be in a situation where he picks up or handles a gun without supervision. I would prefer he knows something about what he's doing before its too late. All the posturing and platitudes from the limp Daley administartion isn't going to help.
