  • And to top things off not one member of the NRA is ever involved in this type of insanity. So good people of Chicago - STOP BLAMING GUNS.

    If you want lay blame for America's blighted cities and crime problem look no further than Bill Clinton's signature on the NAFTA agreement. No jobs equals more crime, it's as simple as that.

  • Guns are not the problem. Gun laws are the problem. Stricter and tighter gun control is what America need.
