Obama is paying a visit on his post-SOTU campaign tour to the south-side of Chicago to push his gun control anti-gun violence agenda.
Chicago, with a gun violence death count of 500 for the year of 2012, has some of the most restrictive firearm laws in the nation. It’s not clear what Obama will talk about to his audience, as they are largely restricted from legally owning a firearm. He may ask them to support more background checks for the guns they can’t purchase in the first place. Or perhaps he will ask the criminals who buy/sell firearms to intitute some sort of background check within the black market where these guns are sold and purchased.
