Go after bad guys, not weapons they've used

I read in the papers that you want stricter gun laws, and we already have the strictest laws in the country. The problem is not guns; it’s the bad guys who use them.

I have never seen a gun walk into a room and start shooting. Go after the bad guys; that’s the problem.

I was driving home on the Dan Ryan and saw a sign saying 947 traffic deaths. The paper said 500 gun killings, but nothing is said about banning cars.
