Michael, go to Chicago and disarm the gangs and make things right. Certainly the gun laws are behind you in that endeavor. Show us how this can really work and people will be convinced, I guarantee it. In fact, don't do it to convince us, do it because you are convinced. Our convincing will just be icing on the cake compared to what you can accomplish in Chicago. We are reasonable people, but your argument seems to be just anti gun, not anti violence. We actually want anti violence. Trying to convince us to be anti gun instead, well, our minds don't work that way, we want anti violence. It's like wanting algebra and instead you are given peer instruction.
