    Thank god I got my parents away from that Shit hole of a city! You can't go out to eat without bullets flying and it appears you can no longer go to the hospital without a firearm and body armor.

    Well at least the mayor is representing his anti-gun views by keeping lawful, legal gun owners out of city hall and denying them their constitutional civil rights.

    But why don't the anti-gunners focus on criminals and stopping crime ?
    Well, that would be self defeating, without actual criminals committing actual crimes the anti-gun lobby would have nothing to blame on the NRA and lawful, legal gun owners.

    Wonder why crime has skyrocketed in GR?

      So… I take it you don't believe the wonderfully corrupt mayor, when he says that violent crime is on the decline! 😉
