[quote]I really don't think the gun laws in Chicago are really germane to the problems with gun violence in Chicago. Many of the problems have been decades in the making.

i just want to add for people in here, if you have a chance, watch Sherlock. it's on netflix and in my opinion is the best thing out there right now.
i totally get that it's not everybody's cup of tea, but it is fantastic, from a writing, musical, directing, acting, and all around PoV.
