PROOF That More Gun Control Doesn’t Keep Citizens Safer


If we listen to the progressive rhetoric, we will get the impression that the bigger the government, the better things work. More oversight equals less crime, waste, and corruption. But if we pay close attention to the cities and states that operate according to such paradigms, we find that this is anything but true.

A prime example of this is the city of Chicago. Long the bastion of progressive politics, Chicago has literally become a warzone.

Breitbart reports:

The 66 murders for May 2016 is topped only by May in 1975, when 75
perished in the Democrat-controlled city.

May also ended with a wild jump in crime. While murders in April rose only 2.9 percent over 2015’s total, by the end of May the crime rate had skyrocketed 40 percent over last year.

This year has already been a particularly bloody year with a total of 233 shot and killed, 1,308 shot and wounded, and an additional 27 murdered by other means.

These numbers are staggering. This coupled with the fact that Chicago has one of the largest full-time police forces in the nation. In fact, few cities come close to the number of officers per capita that Chicago has. Only New Orleans and a few others surpassed them.

With this large a police force, and immense gun control this is still murder capital. Since Mayor Emmanuel took over, things have gone from bad to worse.

Breitbart continues:

As the Chicago Tribune notes, this is also the third year in a row that the murder rate has risen in the Democrat-controlled city.

Shootings have been so bad in Democrat-run Chicago that a person is now shot every two-and-a-half minutes, and someone is killed every fourteen minutes.

For a group that claims to be pragmatic, this only looks like ideological stubbornness. Gun control has not worked, as only the criminals have kept their guns. Buy backs have not worked because the thugs simply go and buy more guns.

The only thing that these policies and gimmicks have accomplished is to make their citizens more vulnerable.
