Change title!!!!....if only Chicago has stricter KNIFE laws......sorry, but I fail to see mention of a gun. This story has absolutely nothing to do with guns. Quote said raped at KNIFEPOINT. Maybe if there was a LEGAL gun nearby, it could have been used to blow away this looser and his buds before they tossed her out the window.

Could this be a case where Chicago gun laws prevented the bad guy from acquiring a gun?

Poor girl was bipolar. In general - regardless of this article, would you want a bipolar person with a gun?

Considering the amount of gun violence there, I would guess not. Some people choose to use knives.

Checks location and sees from Cali. Yup, this post carries little weight with regards to the OP.

j/k

I think the fact of the matter is that despite strict gun control in Chicago, crime still runs rampant more so than most cities in America that have less strict gun regulations.

Indeed it is, but perhaps there's a diminished capacity in judgement making argument. But that's another conversation and i'm no expert. I'm just not so sure given that a close family member of mine is bipolar.

Relax. It's a forum. Honestly I think you are one of the most stressed out members on this forum who takes everything literally. I thought Cali was all sunshine and relaxation?

Sunday is not usually funday. I would title Saturday that. Tidying up the house, cooking dinner, and getting ready for work Monday morning is the usual.
