3. So Rahm is the only one whining and I was talking about Rahm Immanuel's comment since that is the


only possibility?

And naturally, if I don't address Rahm and only Rahm, I am a gun fanatic?


Chicago needs to deal with its gang and racism problem, among others. I've been to Chicago and I know people who lived there. The woman in the couple was culture shocked by the relations between races in more normal America when she left Chicago in adulthood. If Chicago could clean up their hellhole of a city and get rid of the rampant gangs, corruption, authoritarianism, racism, etc., guns would be a non-issue.

Chicago can no more legitimately dictate laws throughout the state to control guns in Chicago than the US can legitimately dictate laws in Latin America and Mexico to control drugs here. Since you allegedly oppose American exceptionalism, you should get that.

It always amazes me how principle-free gun control fanatics are. Unprincipled lunatic anti-gun mayors, for example, fiercely fight for "home rule" special laws for their cities that contrast with general state law, but they don't hesitate to try to impose their will on the rest of the state, or even the nation.
