Well, it certainly didn’t take long after the Newton tragedy for Mayor Emanuel to start enlightening us with his wisdom. He is now calling for tougher gun control. Ok – a lot of people are calling for that. I’m not necessarily opposed, depending on the controls. But what really gets me is the fact that he wants to license them like cars. He wants to charge an annual fee ( I can’t remember the amount he mentioned – somewhere between $45 and $65 dollars) to own a gun. Really? Is he going to get the criminals to register their guns and pay the fee? Of course not. So who is going to pay the fee? The law abiding gun owners. This kind of talk is what makes people join the NRA.
