Quote of the Day: Because Chicago Gun Control Works So Well Edition

“Illinois is routinely called the ‘most repressive state’ by gun rights groups. It requires everyone to obtain a firearm owner’s identification card before purchasing firearms and ammunition. This gives the police another tool to work with if an armed crook is caught without a card. It also creates a paper trail for repeated, in-state purchases. Perhaps if some kind of effective tracking safeguard had existed in Colorado, James Holmes’s purchases — all of which were legal — might have been flagged.”- retired Chicago cop Michael A. Black in the New York Times
