This is not about reducing the amount of guns or violence...It's about putting gun shops and ranges etc. out of business. Putting cash in the county coffers is only a bonus. The Dems of Cook County have been trying to come up with a way to put all gun related business out of the area and may have come up with a way! Who's going to buy guns or ammo in this county when you can save by going into a close by collar county?

So wait, they say that 1/3 of the gun related violence is from guns purchased in the suburbs, but they are going to tax the shit out of people in the city which will drive gun owners (both law abiding and criminals) to the suburbs to purchase guns and ammo.



Dumbshits.

This would make the tax on a box of .22s far more than the cost of the ammunition itself.

The most shocking part of the article is at the end where they refer to Toni Preckwinkle as "she". That's a woman!?

All handguns should be free, and handed out to every citizen of the United States, because the 2nd amendment guarantees our right to bear arms. But, bullets should cost $10,000 each. So if you wanna bust a cap in someone's ass, it will have to be for a VERY good reason.

Yea, that makes sense, right? :(

Chris's way is one way of looking at this. Providing shooting lessons in junior high or grammar school could be another approach. Seems people are mostly upset that innocent bystanders are shot. Gangbangers with skill could exterminate themselves and everyone could live happily ever after.

I like how the city keeps carping about how the suburbs are providing a source of weapons and ammo to the city residents, without every addressing the elephant in the room:

Then where's all the violence in those suburbs? If they're an easy source of guns and ammo, why aren't they dripping in the blood of innocents?

Seriously, how can they say that at a press conference or interview without someone slapping themselves in the forehead and going, "Hey...."?

A blatant and illegal attempt to circumvent a supreme court decision.

Sounds like he is on point.

I don't know why people are so scared of guns. Anyone could easily break into your house and ax your face apart if they really wanted.

People need to stop with this bullshit and legalize rights to carry so the good guys can fight back.

This is all of Cook County, not just Chicago.


And its stupid. Law abiding gun owners aren't the problem, and attacking their access to legal weapons/ammo isn't going to solve any crime problems.

Yes, she's female. And she is President of the Cook County Board of Commissioners. The People of Cook County elected her about a year ago. So this would be a County wide tax, not just in the City.

She's been on the news a lot since we got rid of that Stroger kid. You don't pay too much attention to the local government around here, do you? Shame, cause they will mess up your life far more than the Feds will.
