Refusing to See What's in Front of Your Face

Chicago, Illinois has among the most restrictive gun laws in the county, and no death penalty.  Capital punishment was abolished in Illinois three years ago.

With more enlightened punishment certain to increase public respect for the fairness of the law (as we are ceaselessly told), and with stringent regulation of guns making the streets safer, Chicago must be on the way to setting an example for the nation.

And, in truth and in fact, it is setting an example --  exactly the example you'd expect when thugs see that the rest of us are losing our nerve.
