>you can cross to several of the states bordering IL and pick up a gun easily
Not legally you can't. You can only purchase a gun in the state you are a resident in, and you must purchase it from a someone with a federal firearms license.

Oh, wait, that's what the loophole problem in gunshows is all about ... where unlicensed not-dealers are selling a few hundred guns a year as "personal, private citizen transactions." Damn, maybe we should look into closing that loophole. But that would hurt small business owners who definitely are NOT conducting any "business" while selling hundreds of firearms in "personal, private citizen transactions."

What a quandary.

Anyway, the part about crossing state lines to purchase out of state is a federal crime. Guns sold across state lines have to pass through federally licensed dealers who conduct a federal background check. Do some people ignore that? Yes. Are they breaking the law? Yes.

>Why don't those adjacent states have the same level of gun violence
You've already been told and shown several times and you're just playing cute by ignoring it. So, go fuck yourself.
>The counties AROUND Chicago do not.
You mean the assault weapon ban in Chicago? Which one wouldn't affect this case since it's a handgun?
Old Soviet Rule: if you catch an underage with a gun in the night this is not a child and this being has no parents. if this being survives that said night then it has to be put into orphanage and be raised by the state.
so why didn't the gun laws that are in chicago then work?are you trying to say that criminals really dont care about gun laws and it hurts the loyal members of society only?

Beijing may consider sending a peacekeeping force to Afghanistan if the security situation in the South Asian country poses a threat to the neighbouring Chinese province of Xinjiang after American troops pull out, analysts said.
US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that he would withdraw all remaining US troops – about 2,500 – from Afghanistan by September 11, the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attack in New York.

The withdrawal may pose a threat to Afghanistan’s security and stability, which could spill over into Xinjiang and disrupt China’s counterterrorism efforts.

In 2018, China trained Afghan troops and helped set up a mountain brigade. The training took place in China and the aim of the brigade was to counter possible attacks by al-Qaeda and Islamic State.
“The security forces of the Afghan government are not capable of ensuring Afghan security,” said Sun Qi, an international relations specialist at the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.
“The situation in Afghanistan might go further into chaos in the future. Cross-border crime, drug trafficking and smuggling of firearms may proliferate,” he said.

While Beijing would not station troops in Afghanistan, it might work with other countries in the region to promote political stability and reduce the security risk to China, Sun said.

“If the security situation poses a significant threat, China may send peacekeeping troops along with humanitarian assistance to the region under the terms of the Charter of the United Nations to ensure the safety and interests of Chinese people and companies there,” he said.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Thursday that foreign troops stationed in Afghanistan should withdraw in a “responsible and orderly manner” to prevent terrorist forces from taking advantage of the chaos.
“The United States is the biggest external factor affecting the Afghan issue. The relevant decisions and actions of the United States should fully respect the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Afghanistan, earnestly take responsibility for maintaining the results of peace and reconstruction in Afghanistan,” he said.

Soon after Biden’s announcement, Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance planned to withdraw its troops – about 7,000 – from Afghanistan by next month. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Thursday that Australia would also complete its military withdrawal from Afghanistan in September.
Other experts said China was unlikely to push too hard to gain influence in Afghanistan as there was already fierce competition in the region.

“A number of countries, including Pakistan, India and Russia, want to exert their influence in the region, so China really needs to be careful of getting involved in the chaos,” said Wang Jin, a research fellow at the Charhar Institute think tank in northern China.
China and the US were unlikely to engage in any significant cooperation in Afghanistan after the US troop withdrawal, given the tensions between the two countries, he said.
“We can see from the withdrawal of US troops that the willingness of the US to intervene in Afghanistan’s affairs is declining,” he said.
“Primarily because the idea of solving local conflicts by establishing a Western-style democracy in Afghanistan has failed.”
Sun said the US was likely to withdraw its military deployments from Central Asia and redeploy them to the Asia-Pacific.
“The withdrawal from Afghanistan allows the US to boost its military presence in Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean regions, with the aim of containing China,” he said.
“The US is highly likely to increase its military activity in the South China Sea and China-Indochina peninsula.”

On Thursday, Michael A. Bolton, the inspector general for the United States Capitol Police, will deliver a report on the law-enforcement agency’s preparation for and conduct during the attack.

Bolton determined that leaders told officers on the scene to hold back.

The strategy on January 6, the inspector general found that Capitol Police leaders ordered the Civil Disturbance Unit not to use its most serious crowd-control weapons, such as stun grenades, as Trump supporters took over the building while lawmakers were still inside. Officers on duty told the inspector general that those tools could have helped “push back the rioters.”

Despite this report of the violence to come, the FORMER chief of the Capitol Police determined that the likelihood of an attack was “improbable.”

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration revealed on Thursday that a business associate of Trump campaign officials in 2016 provided campaign polling data to Russian intelligence services, the strongest evidence to date that Russian spies had penetrated the inner workings of the Trump campaign.

The revelation, made public in a Treasury Department document announcing new sanctions against Russia, established for the first time that private meetings and communications between the campaign officials, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, and their business associate were a direct pipeline from the campaign to Russian spies at a time when the Kremlin was engaged in a covert effort to sabotage the 2016 presidential election.

Previous government investigations have identified the Trump aides’ associate, Konstantin V. Kilimnik, as a Russian intelligence operative, and Mr. Manafort’s decision to provide him with internal polling data was one of the mysteries that the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, sought to unravel during his two-year investigation into Russia’s election meddling.

“During the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign, Kilimnik provided the Russian Intelligence Services with sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy,” the Treasury Department said in a news release. “Additionally, Kilimnik sought to promote the narrative that Ukraine, not Russia, had interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”

>Mueller himself stated no one from the campaign knowingly colluded with Russians, including Trump.
The fuck? He stated Trump's campaign chief, Manafort had colluded which is the plea deal they were working on with him to testify to when Criminal-in-Chief offered him a pardon to keep his mouth shut. Now the proof is coming out and you cultists still try to white knight a morbidly obese narcissist criminal who considers you to be lower than the illegal aliens providing janitorial/maid service/dishwashing at his hotels.

The Florida Republican Party has passed a bill that allows for “penis inspection” days.

Under a new ban on transgender students in sports passed by Florida's House of Representatives, schools would have the power to subject students to "physical examination" if their gender is disputed.

The "Fairness in Women's Sports Act" bans transgender female athletes from competing on women's athletic teams in both high school and college sports, although transgender male athletes may still compete on either team. In cases where a student's "biological sex" is disputed, the law authorizes schools to require health examinations or documentation from the student's personal health care provider.

"A dispute regarding a student's sex shall be resolved by the student's school or institution by requesting that the student provide a health examination and consent form or other statement signed by the student's personal health care provider which must verify the student's biological sex," says the bill, which provides for "routine sports physical examination" of students' reproductive organs, genetic makeup or testosterone levels.

"This is about giving women and girls an equal chance to succeed. It's simple, it's clear, I've reviewed it," said Republican state representative Jenna Persons-Mulicka, according to the local FOX affiliate.

A gunman killed eight people and injured several others before killing himself in a late-night shooting at a FedEx facility near the Indianapolis airport, police said.

Five people were hospitalized after the Thursday night shooting, according to police. One of them had critical injuries, police spokesperson Genae Cook said. Another two people were treated and released at the scene. FedEx said people who worked for the company were among the dead

It was too early to tell whether the shooter was an employee at the facility.

Special operations officers reportedly shared racist comments and language supporting the QAnon conspiracy theory in secret Facebook groups

NBC News reviewed of hundreds of Facebook posts on pages for current and former Rangers, Green Berets and other elite forces and found comments lamenting a so-called deep state run by pedophiles, a hallmark of the QAnon theory.

One post accused aides to former Vice President Mike Pence of being part of a "Concerted effort by the thieves and pedophiles walking the hallowed halls of the peoples government" to undermine former President Trump.
"In a just world, they would have already been taken out behind the court house and shot," a user remarked.
Another post reportedly discussed criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement and featured a noose and the message "IF WE WANT TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN WE WILL HAVE TO MAKE EVIL PEOPLE FEAR PUNISHMENT AGAIN."

The Florida Senate on Thursday passed, largely along party lines, a controversial anti-riot bill that was pushed by GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests last summer.

The bill would increase criminal penalties for assaulting law enforcement officials while engaging in a "riot" and defacing monuments and other public property during riots. It would also penalize local governments that interfere with law enforcement efforts to contain riots and set up a citizen's appeal process when cities and counties try to reduce police budgets in response to riots.

The final vote in the Senate was 23-17, with one Republican voting with Democrats in opposition. The bill passed the GOP-controlled House in late March. Democratic legislators argue that it would create a chilling effect on First Amendment rights and restrict political dissent. Republicans argued that it would protect law enforcement officers and prevent public disorder.

GOP state Sen. Ed Hooper said during the bill's contentious debate that the legislation was not about racism but about "law and order." Democratic state Sen. Jason Pizzo, who criticized the bill, tweeted after it passed that "this legislative session will likely get its own custom box of Cards Against Humanity."

DeSantis, who championed the legislation, said in a statement after it passed that he "looks forward" to signing the measure. He is expected to do so as early as next week.

Since the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, at least 13 states have taken up legislation to crack down on protests. The push, critics say, is a revival of broader anti-protest efforts that emerged during the Black Lives Matter demonstrations that rocked the country last summer.

A member of the Oath Keepers militia who was charged in connection with the riot at the Capitol pleaded guilty on Friday and agreed to cooperate with the government — potentially against other members of the far-right group.

The guilty plea by the Oath Keeper, Jon Ryan Schaffer, 53, of Indiana, was the first to be entered publicly by any of the more than 400 people who have been charged so far in the Jan. 6 riot. News of the plea emerged last week after secret documents in Mr. Schaffer’s case were briefly unsealed by accident on a federal court database.

The common and root causes of all social problems are people's ignorance, immaturity, mental illness, personality disorder, and low-level education that neglects them.
Anyone who is inspired or brainwashed by conspiracy theory, fake, pseudoscience, hoaxes, fortune-telling, or religion and is euphoric as "my knowledge is all true" is a victim of inappropriate low-level education.
Since we do not teach philosophy or psychology in compulsory education, children grow up to have a personality that lacks foresight, sympathy, self-control, problem-solving, logical thinking, various literacy, and self-affirmation.
Inexperienced people need not HATRED (punishment, blame, exclusion, neglect), but LOVE (adequate high-level education and psychotherapy counseling to enhance information analysis)

Taser CEO says police can replace guns with nonlethal weapons by 2030

The co-creator of the Taser hinted that law enforcement could trade Glocks in for nonlethal weapons within a decade as technology continues to advance.

Rick Smith, co-creator of the Taser and CEO of its manufacturer, Axon, believes the company will be able to create an electric stun gun in 10 years that could offer a replacement to police pistols, he said.

"We’ve got to outperform the police pistol ... I think we’ll get there, where, by 2030, we’re going to have nonlethal weapons so good, it will actually be a faster time to incapacitation more reliably than a police pistol,” Smith told Forbes.

Spanish language media reported last Sunday that radical pro-abortion supporter Maria de Valle Gonzalez Lopez died during what she labeled her “dream” abortion operation. She was 23 years old and was the leader of the Radical Youth in the La Paz municipality in the province of Mendoza. Her death has sparked a fierce debate about abortion in Argentina and led for calls for women to know that the procedure can sometimes carry serious risks.

On April 11, the woman underwent a legal abortion procedure in a local hospital. The operation turned out to be fatal for her. This fact came as a shock to the public as this was the first recorded death following the approval of the country's controversial pro-abortion bill passed on December 30, 2020, which legalized abortion in some cases. Previously, abortion was illegal in the predominately Catholic country.

In fact, abortion should be mandatory for all women where any of the following hold true:

Wed or unwed and reliant on alimony as more than 1/3 of total household income
Wed and spouse or any dependants are on public assistance
It's called Karma!

Twitter said it banned O'Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, because he allegedly used multiple fake accounts to boost his following.
James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, a day after being permanently banned from Twitter, says he is preparing to launch a legal broadside against Big Tech and the mainstream media.

“We’re going to sue CNN and we’re going to sue Twitter,” the combative 36-year-old conservative activist and guerrilla journalist told The Post during a Friday interview at his bunker-like headquarters on a non-descript street in Mamaroneck.

“We’re going to sue a bunch of other people and we’ll represent other people suing these organizations and represent a people’s defamation defense fund under the country’s libel laws — something that no one’s ever done before,” he said.

Twitter said it banned O’Keefe because he allegedly used multiple fake accounts to boost his following and tried to “artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts.”

O’Keefe denies ever using fake accounts. He said he got the boot because of an embarrassing exposé of CNN he released Wednesday showing secretly-recorded video of a CNN director, Charles Chester, boasting that his network produced “propaganda” aimed at defeating President Trump in the 2020 election. Chester was also caught on tape saying CNN played up the COVID-19 death toll for ratings.
