Legal Gun Owners Responsible For Cook County/Chicago Crime

That's the latest volley in the push by Illinois Democrats to ban guns, in this case by Cook County board president Preckwinkle. They at least admit what the goal is though: "The idea is to curb the number of guns in circulation".

So who are they really trying to effect here?  The criminals, who I'm sure will bother paying all these taxes, or the poor and middle class firearm owners who want to protect their families and/or enjoy the shooting sports.    
“This is just another example of the blame game — Chicago and Cook County has a gun violence problem, Chicago’s got a high high school drop-out rate, they’ve got a drug problem, they’ve got a gang problem, but they want to make legal gun owners, guys like me, the scapegoat,” said Todd Vandermyde a National Rifle Association lobbyist who works in Springfield.
“It is another way to enact a Jim Crow law and keep people from exercising their constitutional right, he said.“All you’re doing is jacking up the price of guns and ammunition — for someone who can least afford it,” he said.
 It's funny that while the Democrats are screaming about voter ID laws 'disproportionately effect poor and minorities", their leadership are pushing laws that disproportionately effect poor and minorities. I had a guy ask me the other day why there aren't any gun shows in Cook County.  Well, outside of the fact that half the guns are illegal there w/ their 'Assault Weapon Ban', this is the reason.  Just think of all the fees, restrictions and bureaucracy an organizer would be subject to if they tried to have one.  All for the very reason of "to curb the number of guns in circulation".
