Gun control doesn’t work, and given that he’s from Chicago, Barack Obama should know that. This year, they’ve had over 4000 shootings and nearly 700 gun homicides. That’s a sizeable chunk of the nation’s shootings all in a single city, far out of proportion to it’s share of the nation population by a long-shot. And while liberals may say this is all despite their strict gun control, the wiser among of know that it’s because of their strict gun control laws.
Take a look at any countries that ban guns, and you’ll see an explosion in their murder rates. Take a look at what happened to the UK, Ireland, and Jamaica after they banned handguns:
And Chicago is no different! Every week they have a death toll larger than you’d see resulting from a mass public shooting.
Chicago saw one its most violent Thanksgiving holidays in years, with eight people killed and 62 others wounded between late Wednesday afternoon and early Monday.
The toll towers over the number of shootings in the previous two Thanksgiving holiday weekends, according to data kept by the Tribune.
In 2014, five people were killed, including a woman inside the Nordstrom’s store on Michigan Avenue, and 14 others were wounded. Last year, eight people were killed, including a 16-year-old boy, and 20 were wounded, the data show.
This year’s tally does not include the three people shot dead by Chicago police over the holiday period.
And what’s their solution for all this? More gun control of course. It didn’t work before, but I guess the millionth times a charge.
