Chicago, IL

It's been a month since 16-year-old Blair Holt, son of a Chicago Police gang investigator and a Chicago fire captain, was shot and killed riding the bus home from high school.

Like Bill Cosby' son, Michael Jordan's father, Serena and Venus Williams' sister and Chicago area Congressman Bobby Rush's son, family proved no hedge against gun violence for Holt.

But do the 21 Chicago students killed by guns since September--two from Blair Holt's school--mean Chicago's gun ban doesn't work as gun lovers contend?

(And since it doesn't work we should be allowed to buy 18 guns at once to protect ourselves? Including automatic weapons? And weapons from unlicensed dealers to avoiding background checks?)

Or does it mean that suburban gun shops are arming the city from its borders and stoking and profiteering off the violence? Aided and abetted by state laws like HR 4818, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005, which prevents disclosure of "any part of the contents of the firearms tracing system?" In effect, protecting the "rights" of straw purchasers and criminals?
