After any major shooting in America, you will hear the liberals come out and demand new gun laws and they call for a ban on assault weapons, but their plan won’t work.
At least banning assault rifles and making it extremely hard to get handguns should stop violence right?
In Chicago, a city with some of the strictest gun laws in America, there have been 2,395 shooting victims since the start of the New Year. In comparison, there were 2,988 all of last year.
Chicago has a ban on assault rifles, it has a violence tax, strict rules for buying handguns and they even control the number of gun stores and their locations, but none of that stopped the city from having it’s deadliest month in over a decade.
In July there were 65 killed by gun violence, the most since July of 2006.
Those are just the July records, but in June, there were close to 72 people killed, so at least the July numbers were a little better. If that is what you can call it.
So far this year there have been close to 400 homicides in Chicago in seven months, and 490 all of last year. Unfortunately, Chicago looks like it will almost double the number from last year by 2017.
Liberals try so hard to end gun violence by taking away the guns, instead of taking away the desire to kill. Most of the deaths in Chicago are black on black crimes that are happening in the most impoverished parts of the city.
If one was to look at the situation without biased, then controlling guns isn’t the answer to stopping violence, but it is getting people out of poverty and giving them something to live for.
