Chicago shootings over Thanksgiving: Should Chicago institute new laws following the three-fold increase in shootings over this Thanksgiving weekend as compared to the number of shootings over last year's Thanksgiving weekend?

  • Sure, if they know of a good law to put in place.

    I'm not sure of what new laws they could implement that would stop the violence that is happening right now. All of this stuff is meant to divide everyone in the world even more than they were before. This seems as if it is not going to settle any time soon.

  • Yes, I think so.

    Leadership has a lot to do with problems like this. Some refuse to let gangs or the criminal element to take over their cities. Others just continue on for years to come and could care less if they are in power. 50+ shot on a week end in one city? I do not think my city has 50 shot in a whole year even taking population into account. You are what you are on life and accountable.

  • Better police management may be more effective

    Chicago already has restrictions on gun access which are much stricter than in a large number of states which have not seen this kind of gun violence. This suggests that the problem is more to do with social policy. The police should direct more resources towards community outreach and other programs in the poorer communities where much of this violence is concentrated.

  • No, new laws will not help curb Chicago's gun violence.

    No, Chicago should not institute new laws despite the increase in shootings over the past weekend. Chicago already has some of the country's most stringent firearms laws, and the violence continues to spiral. The city should work on expanding economic opportunity to its most vulnerable citizens instead of continuing to pass laws that do nothing.
