"The point of [so-called "assault weapon" bans]...is not to ban firearms that are dangerous, it's to ban firearms that gun owners want to own because the people making the laws don't like gun owners. If we want to buy non-semiauto AR-style rifles, they'll ban those too, and for the same reason."

A large hunting knife... surely it was under the 2.5 inches to make it legal in Chicago - he wouldn't want to break Chicago laws.

We are thinking about the Charleston South Carolina... a $550k house for a SC resident runs about $2,100/year in property tax. And the income tax isn't that much higher than Illinois.

Cops Investigating Second Report Of Person Shot By Pellet Gun At CTA Station


For the second time in less than 24-hours, Chicago police are investigating a report of a person shot by a pellet gun at a CTA train station.

An Uptown man called police around 2:45 p.m. on New Year’s Eve to report that he had been shot by a BB gun while at a train station. Chicago police tonight declined to offer further details about where the incident took place. The victim declined EMS treatment.

On Saturday, a 21-year-old man shot in the face with a pellet gun as he stood on the Grand Red Line station platform around 8:40 p.m.

That man was treated for his injuries at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said. A source reported that a pellet had become lodged in the man’s face.

One witness reported that he believes that Saturday's shooter was either inside the conductor cabin or standing between cars of a southbound train when the man was shot.

No one is in custody for either incident.

Early on November 27, a man reported being shot in the neck and stomach by a pellet gun as he stood outside of a Boystown bar at Halsted and Cornelia. The man, who refused medical treatment and did not file a police report, said the offender shot at him from a black car that was moving eastbound on Cornelia.

Shot fired at Blue Line train in Logan Square, no one injured

No one was injured when someone shot at a CTA Blue Line train early New Year’s Day in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

A single bullet was fired through the train’s window about 2 a.m. in the 1900 block of North Western, according to Chicago Police.

No one was injured, but the train had to be evacuated, police said.

No one was in custody Monday morning as Area North detectives investigated.

A woman stopped a teen who stole money from her purse on a Red Line train Wednesday night and held him for police at the Harrison station

You know what I know, but it's fun to guess so I'm going to say she tackled him and sat on his chest til police arrived.

She seduced him...

Some people living here have their head up their butt so far they can't see the truth.

 

I was complaining about the crime at work and some of my pro-Chicago coworkers were saying that it only happens in certain neighborhoods. Well, not anymore. The gang bangers have cars and have the ability to travel outside of their crime ridden neighborhoods.

 

They argued that the suburbs also have crime. Yes, it's true, but I don't think people in the suburbs have to worry about armed robberies, carjackings, and other violent crime as much as people living in the city.

The crime is no longer contained to the "certain" neighborhoods.  The street thugs are traveling out to more target rich environments.  I do think that people in the suburbs have to worry about car jacking, armed robbery and rape, but that is because the perpetrators are traveling from the traditional high-crime neighborhoods to prey upon sunurbanites.

 

People in North East Illinois are really screwed.  Chicago is something like a $500 billion economy, but Rahm Emanuel won't invest in law enforcement and bordering communities have limited resources to deal with the crime.  The bordering towns don't have the money to hire hundreds of cops, if they start to raise taxes in order to pay for more police, the residents just leave and move further west or leave Illinois altogether.  The justice system is totally dysfunctional, turning dangerous felons back out on the street after short stays in jail.

 

The whole region is copying what happened in Detroit.  We're following in Detroit's footsteps, the same exact things are happening here that happened in the Detroit area 20 years ago.

As long as I don't have to drink sarsaparilla, then no.
