    Wow how long was it between the last one and this one? thats got to be some kind of record.

    One thing you can be sure of is the criminals are armed and they are looking for any target of opportunity. They are looking for you!

    Support HB 148 Your Right To Carry, The crooks are already armed and you are the target!

      When it comes to black on black crime, I only care about the number of dead, when they only wound each other, it just means the tax-payers have to foot the bill to patch these shines up just to go out and start shooting all over again!! What’s your point!!?? Seriously, do you actually think the “chicago negro”has any morals, empathy, intelligence, etc…………………….any d@ mn thing that makes them even remotely human??? THINK AGAIN!!!!

      These animals committing crimes like this aren’t acting. They really don’t posses the mental capacity that is required in order for one to care.

    I agree with you, Stephen
