This is What Gun Control Looks Like: 532 Murdered in Chicago in 2012
If gun control laws work, why were 532 people murdered last year in the Anti-Gun City of Chicago?
According to statistics compiled by the Crime in Chicago website, 532 people were murdered and 2,670 people were shot during 2012 in the city of Chicago. The number increased by 71 deaths from the previous year.
That means in a city, where it’s virtually impossible for a law-abiding citizen to legally own a gun, an average 7.3 people were shot every day.
2013 off to a deadly start:
In the first 12 hours of 2013, 15 people have already been shot on the streets of Chicago; 3 have lost their life. When you see numbers like this, you really have to ask yourself why the politicians are so interested in taking law-abiding citizens guns? In my opinion, Chicago is a prime example of what happens when these Anti-Gun policies get put in place.
Stronger gun laws will not stop the violence. In fact, as seen in Chicago, it will only result in an increase in murders and other violent crimes. The only thing these gun control laws do is put law-abiding citizens in a situation where they have to choose between becoming easy victims or criminals themselves in order to protect their life and property.
The criminals are not going to obey these laws, if they did they wouldn’t be criminals to begin with would they?
