grumpy19, that is 8583 way too many. The figure I quoted is with firearms only; Legal or illegal! Legality of owning weapons does not mean crap once you murder another. How many weapons are stolen from burglaries, thefts, and robberies. At one point all of those weapons had an owner and are now illegal.

What is a local newspaper without a rant from Dick Kalfus. He seems to be the problem instead of the solution! His solution is religious belief instead of logic. Nothing in the Constitution addresses abortion, only Dick K.

Jesuaph & netransplant: How many of the shooting deaths were made with legal guns? How many were done with illegal guns? How many deaths were with a knife or other common instrument? If you are going to quote figures, break them down to legal and illegal weapons, not a generality.

A question for Kalfus: Do you have the 10 Commandments displayed in your home? Is there one that says women are incapable of thinking for themselves and making their own life decisions?

A comment: Abortion is legal in this country. I know old men like you would like to go back to the good old days of back alley abortions and lye and coat hangers and more death. Old men like you who could never ever possibly conceive and can never ever possibly understand all the moving pieces that go into a woman's decision to end an unwanted, unplanned pregnancy. You may not like abortion - that's your choice. But it's a legal medical procedure. End of story.

If one must write about an issue, because one feels it is important to educate others, then please do some research and provide factual information. In 2011 there were 8,583 murders commited by firearms (info obtained from FBI web site)

The US Constitution has been a dynamic document since the first time they added amendments and it should grow with America, not represent the past alone!

Mr. Kalfus is still lying. In 2011 there were 435 shooting deaths in Chicago alone. Do have any morals to speak of Dick?
