what they are trying to accomplish IMHO. I don't think they are as stupid as you guys think, there's more to this. Ideally they would love to see gun stores in cook county go out of business (people would be doing exactly what you said - taking their business to DuPage and other counties). So it's a win-win for them - in the interim they would be getting the money from dwindling sales in cook county and once the stores close their door they would celebrate it and spin it as "it's harder to get guns in Cook county now, thanks to our efforts". Brainwashed and clueless inhabitants of IL and especially Cook will just go with it , not questioning the fact that nothing changed (at least not for the better) in terms of violence in Chicago.
