Today, liberal members of the House of Representatives decided to stage a sit in to push for gun control legislation. During their free time sitting on the floor they should have done an internet search for “Chicago Deaths This Year.” Upon hitting the enter button they would see article after article showing how “well” gun control in this city is working.
Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. If gun control actually worked, Chicago would be the safest place to live. Instead, this city has reached its 300th homicide this year on Father’s Day weekend. From January 1, 2016 to today Chicago has had 312 homicides and 1,803 shooting victims. By the end of 2016, this number will far surpass the 468 homicides and 2,988 shooting victims there was for all of 2015.
Chicago is a wonderful example of a liberally controlled, Utopian project gone wrong. Gun control laws strip law abiding citizens of their constitutionally protected right to defend themselves. Background checks and wait periods won’t stop criminals from illegally obtaining the firearms that increase this homicide statistic every day.
