    Not one day after the hate/fear mongering government controlled media reported on a mass shooting, the crusade to disarm all the citizens (the second thing a dictator does after dumbing everyone down) doesn't stop. This time, all gun owners are stupid and incompetent!

      Exactly! This story makes no sense. I'm not even sure how this made it to the news. There are a billion other stories out there, far more important (if this story is real…) where r my tax dollars? Why do we have speed cameras? What's up with those 3.4 million dollar lights on congress/south loop? Can we get that $ back? Why is Emmanuel still mayor? Who will vote for Quinn again and why? So many stories.
