    The Closing the Gun Show Loophole Act would require private sellers at gun shows to perform background checks before selling firearms. Illinois passed a similar law in 2005.

    Jody Weis is superintendent of Chicago Police. He says the law should be implemented in all states.

    Hey Jody Weis...go get bent.

    Obviously none of the other states should be following Chicago's lead on anything....given that Chicago is the only city (so far) that has been taken to court and beaten like ya stole something should tell you you're behind the times. People are tired of being treated like chattle and are no longer content with being told what to do by those who think they have their best interests in mind.

    When the ability to keep and bear arms is getting nationwide recognition, people like you (Weis) see nothing but a threat from the populace. IMO, that's good....you should feel threatened....because you are no longer serving the people as a "public servant"....you are subjecting people to unconstitutional laws that only the law-abiding obey. Criminals still have the guns...and it's a proven fact police can't be everywhere....and even if they are present when a crime is happening, they do not have the duty to protect an individual from harm.

    I have no idea who these "National Law Makers" are, nor what their overall agenda is. They're landing in Chicago and crowing about anti-gun guilt to be sprayed in the direction of legislatures across the country in regards to "gun loopholes." Note the capital letters in their title, too. They must be big, National types. Ooooh. Dangerous, whatever else might be inferred from their title.

    About the only thing we gather from the short news quip is that they're seeking to pressure (shame?) legislators across the country into guilt so they'll pass anti-gun laws, focusing on disallowing citizens to buy/sell firearms without government intrusion. Government has intruded itself in most aspects of firearms ownership and use, yet it all has seemingly failed to stop criminals from acquiring firearms everywhere in the country irrespective of any of these laws. Can't imagine how waggling the little legal finger of shame and criminality at gun show attendees will keep criminals from acquiring any fewer firearms. Criminals will do it anyway, ignoring this sort of restriction in the same way every other firearms-related law is ignored. In the meantime, citizens will have yet another avenue for government intrusion paved right to our doorsteps. Ineffectual. It's about all that we're assured of, with such laws.

    Ignore the constitution for a minute...

    Basic research that is widely available shows that this is not a problem. Criminals do not get their weapons from gun shows. This does nothing except hurt gun shows and keep guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens.

    "WEIS: It's just common sense legislation. I don't see how anyone could say this is restrictive when we're simply asking for a background check if you're going to buy a weapon. This is pretty simple to understand."

    Notice that the rationale given is not fact based. Why not? I don't understand what is motivating these people.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    This doesnt scare me a bit.

    Georgia does not care what Chicago has to say or what kind of anti gun rhetoric is out there.

    We just passed all kinda goodies in favor of 2a. We have alot more to pass but for now this last year was kind to us for sure.

    For starters, even most criminals have enough sense to not pay gun show prices. The liberal mindset never ceases to amaze (and disgust) me. They want to put all of these restrictions on the law abiding citizen and make us jump through hoops to own or carry a gun, then they turn around and tell us that violent criminals should be "given a second chance."

    I would sincerely hope other states give little credence to anything coming out of Chicago. The city has helped fiscally ruin the state of Illinois, Chicago has one of the highest violent crime rates in the nation, it is a cesspool of political corruption, but then politicians ARE, after all, politicians which basically means common sense plays no part in it.

    Considering their crime and murder rate, Chicago has nothing to brag about....except their crime and murder rate.
