Chicago Holiday Weekend Crime and Chaos on The Magnificent Mile

Chicago has a well-deserved national reputation for homicides. Most people think the violence only happens in the “bad” parts of town, and prudence demands concealed carry holders avoid crime-plagued neighborhoods when possible.

Those High-Capacity Magazines That Turn Regular Firearms Into Fully Automatic Weapons

Meet Illinois State Representative Fred Crespo. He likes to tout how he fights back against NRA-backed politicians.  Furthermore, he supports legislation to “prohibit the sale and possession of high capacity magazines which turn regular firearms into fully automatic weapons.” Really.
