It will not stop the Chicago violence. The good people under siege will have chance for self protection, but as long as the majority remain silent and the underlying issues are ignored, the violence will continue.
I agree the signage was a big one. I also thought giving school administrators the authority to declare someone a danger all by themselves seemed a bit much. Unless most of them are Psychiatrists and i missed it.
On a side note i wouldn’t be surprised if something similar would pass during veto session. I suspect a lot of people are P’od at Quinn for the way he worked his veto and not in the mood to give him a win on any of it.
