If the dangerous condition was the result of one of the rules he revoked, perhaps. Remember that many of those "dreaded" rules are actually protections that keep people safe.

The point is that gun laws don't work or mean anything. Ask any left wing liberal who's squawking about guns and ask "What law would you propose that would eliminate gun violence?" Most will get annoyed with the question and walk away or just stand there with a blank look on their face. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand this;Chicago doesn't have the strictest gun laws. Do your research.
Chicago's murder rate is actually going down. It was 650 last year, 16% below 2016. And, based on the figures you quoted, it may be even lower this year unless there's a sudden rash of killings.
So why is Chicago given special attention by Republicans? Simple! Because Obama lives there. No other logical reason. It's not the safest city, but not the most dangerous either when considered by population.
And Oklahoma City, where the offenders used a bomb?Because that's a rampant problem in our society? People running into a crowded mall and yelling (in English) "In praise of my Lord & Savior - Jesus Christ!" while then detonating a suicide vest?
Hello Gene,So what about Christians who commit acts of terror?
Well, of course there are more white terrorist incidents than Islamic terrorist ones for the simple reason that for every Muslim in America, there are 62 non-Hispanic whites in the population!

Nice work. But you'll never win or gain and edge. Left wingers have an answer for everything. They learn it from watching people like Loretta Lynch & Crooked Hillary testifying in front of congress. Lynch couldn't even give a yes or no answer to the question "If the speed limit is 55 and I'm going 65 - am I breaking the law?" Then she just went into her classic "talking in circles" while disgusting everyone. Slippery as a snake & a answer (or non answer) to everything. Hopefully the American people will see the CCC (Crooked Clinton Cartel) end up in prison before it's all said & done.
For what it's worth...Donald Trump.
He is a symptom of a dysfunctional political system not the cause of it.
No argument from me. People vote for who they think will serve their interest. If I were a college kid I'd have been following Bernie.For what it's worth...
I agree that he was / is a symptom; I think his administration is now yet another contributing factor to the dysfunction.
To me one of the most depressing things about Trump being elected was just what it said about the state of democracy and politics in the U.S. That guy, that's the straw you grasp at? Donald freaking Trump? I think some voted for him in hopes he'd be their wrecking ball in D.C., I know there are loads of theories about other reasons... and I know Presidents don't have to be paragons but, he just struck me as an especially sad selection, a poor vessel for any hopes other than the aforementioned wrecking ball purposes. But then what does that say about, say, everyone else who was a candidate in the Republican primary - that Trump somehow seemed the best option out of that pack? Eh I could go on and on but it's all been said.
