    This is a Liberal Left Chicago District. They're already ignorant to begin with (their city is the Gun Control Capital of the USA and yet they have rampant gun crime on a daily basis). What's even more pathetic is how this election was purchased for $2 million by another flippin' idiot who happens to be Mayor of NYC. I don't consider this a "gun control victory" per se. This is more like the ignorant supporting the ignorant as far as I'm concerned.

    Illnois. Bloomberg wated his money. Chicago has a long history of electing Machine Hacks and this time is no different. Chicago is more concerned with the massive ly out of line Pension tsunami which the Machine traded for campaign support. Who ever pulls the plug and turns out the lights really doesn't matter anymore.

    A liberal democrat wins an election in a liberal democrat district in a liberal democrat city in a liberal democrat state and this is news? Talk about a waste of $2 million. Just a not to Bloomy, if you're ever in the mood to blow another $2 million, you can save some time and write out a check to me.

    " $2 million dollar ad campaign by NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg helped deliver a victory Tuesday night to a pro-gun control Democrat in an Illinois Congressional primary."

    How many things are so wrong with that statement? Why is a NY Mayor sending campaign $ to someone in Illinois??

    @drpeeper I didn't say that...But if you are saying that, then you must have been living under a rock, during the last presidential election...

    @drpeeper Didn't say I "hated" either one----Just setting the record straight, following your comment, that's all.

    @CaryNickel Actually it's quite OK to use "outside money" according to the Supreme Court. Liberals opposed that decision but have the same rights to play that game as conservatives.

    Again If you break down the numbers in this case it's just predominantly poor or subsidized people and those people will vote 98% of the time democratic because of their dependency.

    One can be hardly shocked at this. Folks believing this is a turning point may well be surprised come mid-term elections. One race in Chicago certainly isn't an indicator of anything other than status quo.

    "A Victory"? By getting a Democrat a win over another Democrat? In a Primary Race?
    LOL. Call me when they've defeated opponents from other parties. And besides, isn't that the state that elected Blagojevich and was declared one of the MOST CORRUPT of all 50 states by the US Attorney in Illinois? Hey, like John "Ketchup" Kerry says: "Americans have a right to be stupid".

    So, this is a 'victory'?... How crazy is it when law abiding citizens lose their gun rights,
    while the gangster thugs accumulate more...sure makes me feel safe. I'm just glad I
    don't live in Chicago, my husband was born and raised, there he's watched the crooked politicians playing games for years.

    While it is true that big money won this election consider this. For too many years even democratic politicians have afraid of the NRA and have been too timid to take on the gun nuts. This race was a lot more important than most people realize. Just like when the first lawsuit was won against the tobacco companies this election is going to open the floodgates. We are going to see more and more NRA supported candidates go down in defeat. This election proved that the NRA is not invincible. In a few years, maybe a decade we'll get sensible gun safety regulations like the other western democracies. You are seeing the dawning of a new day. Too bad that the 2318+ people killed by gun violence since the Newtown gun massacre won't be here to see it. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politi...

    Other western sensable governments ? What in hell are you smoking ?
    Gun control is just like the war on poverty or war on drugs.
    Just nonsense

    @PNWest what would a magazine cap and assault weapons ban have done to prevent this horrific tragedy? This is a family paying for one mans ignorance but attacking law abiding citizens rights will not bring him back

    Pro- gun control democrat? Hey Chicago, how are the strictest gun control laws in the country working out for you?

    Note to pro-gun control democrats: criminals don't obey laws!!

    Newtown changed things. Yet another chance for the GOP to evolve into a party that resonates with contemporary thinking.

    @drpeeper Nope, just enjoying your use of blanket statements to try and paint people you don't agree with as being beneath you. Carry on...

    @drpeeper By definition, liberals seek to change with the times and circumstances, whereas conservatives are happy with their 18th century mindset because they think those dogmatic standards and principles will apply equally well for all time eternal. The conservatives are the ones who are inflexible.

    There will be a backlash to that election. Where I have a problem is money from elsewhere came into what is a local/state race. Too much of that. Money over citizens. That's ugly.

    he has placed himself above the law of the land. while holding the office, he decided to ignore the election laws and allow himself to run for re-election. his disregard for the 2nd ammendment just goes right in line with the leftist disregard for the rest of our freedoms as written in our Constitution. NO BIG SODAS!!!!! is just the beginning. get wise people, before its too late. when they take the guns, they'll have no resistence left to take the rest

    It's only my opinion, but I think the upper echelon of Democrat leadership today in America are socialist extremists that seek to dis-arm America, in part, so they can gain control and dominate America. I've been watching them "dumb America down" for 2 generations through our public school systems. I've been watching them successfully "lure" Americans into moral and political complacency with "luxury" and "comfort" for just as long. Currently, the things most visible in their supposedly "hidden" agendas (only hidden from the majority of America because of this dumbing down process) is:~~~~~~

    1: Dis-arm America by convincing it's citizens there is no longer a "need" for the 2nd Amendment, which has always given citizen's the "PERSONAL" right to defend against ALL enEmies, foreign AND "domestic", domestic meaning our own government or cells within the citizenry opposed to the "AMERICAN" way of life.~~~~~~~

    Through the Democratic party lay America's #1 "domestic enEmy". Therefore, the more successful their efforts to dis-arm us at this time will enable the future prospect of total dominance.~~~~~~~

    2 & 3: The socialists (Democrats) also need to gain control of both the food chain, and our medical care. In controlling this two, they will be able to apply great pressure on American citizens by domestic embargo: They will eventually "deny" both food and medical care to ALL citizens who do not "voluntarily" conform to the "LAW" in the future, in whatever their demand at the time.~~~~~~~

    It's really that simple. It's profound, yes. It's almost unbelievable, that our own government could have such strategy against us, yes. It's terrible news... yes. But it's ALL true.~~~~~~

    So in short, the plans and actions of the socialists that have literally taken America by storm, almost un-noticed, are genius, patient, calculated... and successful. The people able to see this are getting to be fewer and fewer... and among the people that can see it... for them to care one way or the other? Even fewer.~~~~~~~

    Never-the-less... May God continue to bless America if it be His will... and may America take this country BACK to where it once was, in faithfulness to God, country and man.

    This little demo-god may be in for a rude awakening when she starts talking gun control to democrats that value individual responsibility. I don't know who is running against her but this could be slam dunk for him if he puts his message togeather properly. Of all the people i can think of, people in the chicago area need to be able to protect themselves more than ANYWHERE else in this country.

    We should chip in money to fund Bloomberg's defeat. We should also petition a bill to strip Bloomberg of his wealth seeing as he obviously has more money than he needs.

    What will a gun ban achieve though? Okay, you may bring down the gun homicide rate, but what will that accomplish apart from just making people resort to other methods of killing? the fundamental objective is to bring down the overall homicide rate not to get people to start killing each other with bats and knives instead! and no, there is no correlation between homicide rates, violent crime rates and crime rates as a whole. For instances, the UK has a higher violent crime rate than the US. To back up my point even more, a HARVARD STUDY proves there is no correlation between guns and homicide rates: http://www.law.harvard.edu/students/orgs/jlpp...

    As for mass shootings, they can be prevented by more armed citizenry and a few obvious security precautions. Despite more armed people seems crazy, it isn't when you acknowledge nearly every successful mass shooting has occurred in a gun free zone, and there have been numerous instances where mass shootings have been prevented by armed citizenry that have virtually gone unreported by the media.

    i do think the people in Illinois are not very smart, strictest gun control laws, no carry permits and the highest gun crimes in the nation, so the answer is to elect a pro gun control nut... of course they like dishonest elected officials in that state so bloomberg just bougth the election
