This is My Shocked Face (More IL Gun Laws)

"It's Groundhog Day here in Chicago."

The irony: it burns.

Although Chicago Police Superintendent Garry (hippie parents much?) McCarthy was decrying the recent spate of gun violence in the gun-free paradise of Chicagoland, he could have been ruminating on the all-too-predictable response of the politicians to a firearms related tragedy:
  1. Run to the sound of the ambulances. (There'll be cameras!)
  2. Hold a press conference. (Extra points for using cops and families as props)
  3. Decry the loss of life. (Try to find a KIA that wasn’t a banger or terminally stupid)
  4. Blame the easy availability of guns. (In Chicago? For Reals?)
  5. Pound the table about the lax gun laws. (In Chicago? For Reals?)
  6. Propose yet another anti-gun law. (Disarm and punish the law-abiding)
  7. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Predictable as a tax increase, Illinois governor “Pat” Quinn bellies up to the cameras to bloviate for another law banning “Assault Rifles”, limiting ammunition capacity, and increasing background checks. The fact that the law would have actually done nothing to stop the violence goes without saying. It’s just the natural political cycle.

One we have to break.
