Well, here we go again. Another rabid anti-gunner spouting off without the facts Sept. 25.

"Thirteen deaths? Referring to the recent Chicago gang shooting? How about 13 wounded, not dead? How about the fact that Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, and the highest murder rate?" - Michael Haas

Whoops!! ANOTHER opportunity, missed, to remind everyone Barack Obama was a Chicago-politico????

I'm "sure" that was a "mistake".

Save your breath. Thru "conservatives'" endless-pursuit of "absolutes"...what "they say" carries much-more-weight than any actual-facts.

jerryfromRI, from wikipedia: "Plinking refers to informal target shooting done at nonstandard targets." They go into more details on the subject if you're interested in reading up on it.

Shaman, I find it sad that you and your ACLU loving liberal buddies fight for the rights of criminals that are locked up because they chose to use guns illegally to project their violence on others. Yet you are against law abiding citizens exerting their second amendment rights to protect themselves from these same criminals. I would call that a warped sense of priorities.

I believe there was a time in the not so distant past when sham/john used his right to bear arms.

Well if you are a law abiding citizen you are under control.

Chicago may in fact have tight gun control laws but unforyunately the surounding communities do not making it easy to purchase and bring back to Chicago. So the surrounding communities to Chicago defy the gun control laws of Chicago.

That's b-a-r-e arms.

When you're "gettin' in the wind", it doesn't make a whole-lotta-sense wearing long-sleeves...unless, of course, you're some obsessive-"conservative", who assumes a white-shirt-and-tie should be SOP.

Ok sham/john, you got me on that one. Excuse the error. But I notice that you can't disagree that you chose to BARE arms when it suited your needs, can you?

Spout all you want about "getting in the wind", it doesn't make the statement disappear.

Excellent letter Michael. Always amazes me how a fact-filled letter can bring out the leftwing loonies. Wish they would all go back to bed and never get up.

Actually the ACLU also files suit in many cases that would not be considered "liberal" causes. Google a list of cases they have litigated.

To never get up means we died in our sleep. Well Good Morning to you too! (Note; last sentence is sarcasm)

"Chicago may in fact have tight gun control laws but unforyunately the surounding communities do not making it easy to purchase and bring back to Chicago."--Chuck

Wrong again Chuck. Chicago is in IL which has the same guns laws as Chicago. But, even if you were right, you have just made a great argument against strict gun laws in the U.S. In just about any third world country, you can buy any weapon you want. All the criminals would have to do is buy them there and bring them across our wide open southern border. It would just set up yet another black market. It may be a cliche but it is true; When guns are illegal, only criminals will have guns.
