Default More Gun Control Foolishness from Illinois Senator Dick Durbin

Dick Durbin thinks that by simply having criminal background checks, criminals won't be able to get guns. And he says Wayne LaPierre doesn't get it?

This is very close to being delusional, magical thinking to be specific: "Magical thinking is an illogical thought pattern common among people with OCD. Magical thinking often involves linking actions or events that could not possibly be related to each other."

I'm confused why we haven't solved our country's meth problem with background checks if they are so effective. Just create a background check system, deny everyone, and problem solved. Move onto the next issue.

Releasing an inmate from the Chicago County jail BY accident has no bearing on Sen. Durbin's magical thinking that background checks will eliminate illegal gun use.

The release was a screw up by a records officer and or a release officer somewhere in their jail system. A serious screw up certainly but a screw up nonetheless.

How did Illinois go so wrong? I guess I should ask that of California and New York.

Once the politicians have removed the 300 million guns in circulation, there will be a thriving black market of guns smuggled in from Mexico. The smugglers will cleverly hide them in bales of marijuana.
