From the invaluable, if unfortunately named, heyjackass.com website, we have these latest data from the city of Chicago:
Year to Date
Shot & Killed: 517
Shot & Wounded: 2476
Total Shot: 2993
Total Homicides: 556
Doesn’t Chicago have among the strictest gun control laws of any major city in the country – arguably, the strictest of all?
Still think stricter gun control laws reduce gun violence? Still think that if the preponderance of gun violence is committed by people using illegally obtained guns those laws are going to have any relevance?
If so, I suggest some very fast, very significant rethinking.
