From the land of "We need MORE laws, because all the ones we have

don't work!", we have the clown running the Chicago PD:
Police superintendent Garry McCarthy acknowledged that his department’s decision to increase the police presence in the city by 30% in anticipation of holiday violence had not prevented the killings – and called for more restrictive gun laws. Last year 14 people were killed in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend.
“What’s the result? We’re getting more guns. Well, that’s great,” he said. “It’s not stopping the violence. And it’s not going to stop the violence until criminals are held accountable and something is done to stem the flow of these guns into our city.”
Chicago has the kind of gun laws the CSGV and Watts and Brady drool over, but for some reason they don't work.  So, as Kevin has noted before, "The philosophy cannot be wrong!  If it's not working, we have to do it HARDER!"

And from the open socialist running for President: 'Most gun owners are honest, law-abiding citizens, but-'
...Sanders noted Sunday that he has a pretty poor grade of a D- from the National Rifle Association and has voted for the assault weapons ban.
Because being a  responsible citizen doesn't mean you should be allowed one of the scary guns.  You might do something with that.
And a big one:
"I come form a state that has virtually no gun control but the people of my state understand that guns in Vermont aren't the same thing as guns in Chicago," he said.
Gee, Bernie, why might it be different?  Maybe because Democrats and gun bigots made sure, for decades, that honest citizens couldn't have them and so forth?
