Mayor Nancy Rotering signed a city ordinance banning assault weapons almost a decade ago and the crazed shooter was still able to obtain a legal "assault weapon." Liberals just can't come to terms that gun bans do not prevent people from getting weapons legally or illegally. Even if the shooter couldn't obtain a gun legally, you can surely bet your bottom dollar that he would have obtained one illegally.

Rotering said "somebody clearly had a mental breakdown" but that the focus should be on access to guns, not mental health. This is probably the most uneducated statement in human history. Let's not worry about this lunatic's mental health, let's just worry about how someone can legally obtain a gun.
"I want us to talk about the fact that there are weapons of war on our streets that people can legally obtain – and then take out dozens of people," she said. "Our community is never going to recover from this wound."
Anyone with a brain and a heartbeat knows that ARs are not used in war and never have been. Not a single war has been fought with ARs because they are practically useless when it comes to killing people. Look at this shooter's ratio. He shot over 30 people and only killed six people. Six people dying is absolutely horrible, but if he was really using a weapon of war, he would have killed way more people. That is why the AR is not used in war.
If the shooter was using your basic hunting rifle, he would have had a way higher kill ratio. Liberals don't know anything about guns, so they don't even think about these facts. They don't know how much more powerful a standard hunting rifle is versus an AR.
Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker, speaking at a news conference hours after the rampage, said the nation's founding fathers carried muskets, not assault weapons, and would not have agreed to a constitutional right to an assault weapon with a high-capacity magazine.
Of course, this is nonsense too, coming from an uneducated baboon. Our founding fathers issued CANNONS to warships under the second amendment. Also, they had many rifles that would shoot more than one round with one pull of the trigger. An AR is semi-automatic, meaning one bullet per one trigger pull.
"Grief will not bring the victims back, and prayers alone will not put a stop to the terror of rampant gun violence in our country," Pritzker, a Democrat, said on Twitter. "I will stand firm with Illinoisans and Americans: we must – and we will – end this plague of gun violence.
Have you ever noticed that they never speak this way when young black males shoot and kill 10-20 people every weekend in Chicago? In Chicago, over 70 people are shot a week by gang bangers, including innocent children and babies. They never go with these bogus talking points until it's a white person who shoots people in mass.
