I understand the tragic nature of what happened in CT, however nothing is being done in Chicago. Every ban imposed in the City affects Law abiding gun owners, not gang-bangers.

See...http://www.npr.org/2011/03/21/132678...violence...and the number is higher in 2012.

States:
In Chicago, nearly 700 children were hit by gunfire last year an average of almost two a day and 66 of them died. That number is up over the previous year, even though the overall number of homicides in Chicago fell last year to a 45-year low.

Obama will try to throw the 2nd Amendment out, but needs one or two more picks in the Supreme Court. So, until then he will try and use the UN handgun treaty which we are close to signing.

The root of the problem is not the guns but who has access to these guns. How do we keep weapons away from the mentally impaired? BTW...when was the last time Obama visited Chicago to discuss the gang and shooting of children problem?
