Ok, so I’m a sensationalist. While I applaud the premise of taking guns away from people who should not have them I have to question any system that is in place in Chicago. What do you think the probability of corruption in the process of GETTING a FOID is? How many friends of officials get cards who shouldn’t and how bad do you have to be to be denied? Who decides? Medical records are sealed so how does Chicago get around that?
What these questions are about is not so much Chicago but the greater question of parameters for curbing illegal firearm possession. Do we just let it all ride, say it’s all good and let God sort out the good from the bad when they reach the pearly gates?
Personally I am in favor of anarchy. I am more than willing to take the risk of running into a loony tune in order to have the means to protect myself. And since I have a bigger gun than you, I get to decide whether you are a loony or not.
