Chicago claims that the ban also reduces the incentive for criminals and gang members to carry firearms
OMG For someone to write this - they have to believe that the end justifies any means - because this is a flat out lie.

Gang members carry guns because at any given time they're carrying $15,000 - $30,000 worth of stuff, not coutning their personal jewelry. They also are carrying because at any given time they may be the target for a revenge killing.

They are NOT carrying for fear that law abiding citizens are carrying. They certainly don't carry less because they think the average law abiding citizen is not carrying, and they're not going to carry MORE if Illinois were to pass some sort of carry legislation.

I know it's only one point of many many stupid arguments that the city made - but this one angers me.

What a bunch of fricken communist liars.
