Flashback: Chicago's Murder Rate Was Even Higher During Handgun Ban:
Chicago’s gun crime is soaring, and the city’s mayor is pushing more gun control as a solution, but Chicago’s homicide was even higher when the city’s handgun ban was in place.Stop. Think about that for a minute.
Okay, now read more from Breitbart:
In other words, more gun control correlated with even more death and suffering.
Go back to the precise quote which excuses everything:
Forget it, Jake; It's Chicago
Okay, I Bowdlerized it a little:
Breitbart News reported that Chicago witnessed nearly 4,400 shooting victims and almost 800 homicides in 2016. And the Chicago Tribune reported that the city passed 1,000 shooting victims this year before April concluded. This means Chicago is on track for a year similar to 2016 in pain and bloodshed, especially when one considers the elevated violence that comes with hot summer months.Has anybody mentioned that personal possession of firearms is ILLEGAL in Chicago?
Postscript: Sometimes, the article writes itself. I slept through this one and I was amazed when I woke up this morning to discover that Chicago's Gun Restrictions hadn't reduced the number of "Gun Violence" incidents at all!!!.
