8. Not in Chicago. Successful home defense with handguns yes, rifles not so much.

No shortage of gang members shooting each other and all the bystanders up every weekend and most week nights, but always with handguns they hide, share or rent not rifles. And I bet not one of them has a valid FOID card.

But up until last year, even owning a handgun in your home was against the law here, unless you were an aldercritter or other designated "peace" officer or privileged character.

Can't think of any rifle or other long gun shooting crimes, let alone one using those vicious "assault weapons"?

Thank you Otis McDonald and Alan Gura, for taking care of that unconstitutional ban for all of us.
