It certainly appears now that the city of Chicago, Cook County and the state of Illinois all have decided that no law-abiding citizen should be able to protect themselves.
It does not seem to dawn on them that the great majority of killings in Chicago are by gang-bangers who really don’t care about the law.
I would ask if these politicians have security, and if so, do they have guns? If either is true, they are hypocrites.
Our lives are as important as theirs. The Second Amendment is second for a reason. Give us a fighting chance.
