A June 2010 story by the Huffington Post confirms what we already knew. Gun bans don’t work.
Even with the gun ban in place, shootings in Chicago have been rampant.
The Supreme Court upheld a challenge to Chicago’s gun ban and in their decision, SCOTUS cited statistics that showed it did not work.
When law abiding citizens do not own guns, the criminals feel they have a greater sense of power.
Chicago Police Department statistics, we are told, reveal that the City’s handgun murder rate has actually increased since the ban was enacted and that Chicago residents now face one of the highest murder rates in the country and rates of other violent crimes that exceed the average in comparable cities.
