RockinRick, Thanks for giving props to Ambassador Keyes. But I can remember whenCoca Cola had cocaine, and I (as a ten yo) could go into the bar next door to my Dad's barber shop and bring him back a beer or a cocktail. I also remember being in the car when he'd get a mixed drink at the liquor store drive through window. Back then it was personal responsibility and knowing your neighbors and customers. What's changed?? js.

People have been taught that it's easier to try and pass the blame...to wit: that "personal responsibility" went right out the window.

If you've got some clothes you don't need anymore, you can give them to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. If you have an old car, you can call various organizations to take it away. And if you're in Chicago and have a gun that's burning a hole in your pocket, you can get rid of it on Saturday, no questions asked.

 

The city government has a great fondness for gun turn-in events. It's done six of them in the past six years, collecting more than 23,000 weapons. This one will be held at 23 churches, and anyone...
