I am referring to Chicago of course.
Following a recent rash of violent crimes, Governor Blagojevich is considering sending state troopers and the National Guard into Chicago.
Everytime there is a violent crime, Mayor Daley calls for more gun control, though considering that Chicago has one of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, I am not sure what else he thinks he can do. A few weeks ago, following a number of gun deaths, a police spokesman called for a ban on "assault weapons" -- the problem was that none of the deaths were due to "assault weapons." At least we have avoided, so far, the "checkpoint" idea they are considering in DC.
I do believe that a lot of this can be traced down to our silly drug laws. But that is a longer discussion.
