Enforce existing laws first

July 15, 2013 

Why is it that when someone gets his underwear in a bunch, everyone else has to suffer?

Instead of creating new laws, why not enforce the ones we have? Do we really have to make a law that enforces the law on illegal aliens? Do we need more laws concerning guns, ammo, et al, when the current ones are laughed at? Chicago has the toughest gun laws yet has the highest rate of crimes committed with a weapon.

How in the world is mandatory health insurance going to work when Illinois has mandatory auto insurance that isn't enforced?

We really need to use and enforce the laws we have before creating more.
