But They Have All That Gun Control

To date, homicides in Chicago for 2016 are approximately 100 percent higher than they were at this same time last year.

Amazing. The most rigid strict gun control in the US, and they're setting new records in murder.  I'm just sayin'.

Hat Tip: Say Uncle.

Chicago - Proof that gun control really works. Not.

Chicago's gun control laws today aren't all that strict, by big-city standards. Their laws are less draconian than the laws of NJ, NYC or NYS, Maryland, California, or Hawaii. The handgun ban was knocked down by the Supreme Court several years ago in McDonald, and Illinois now has shall-issue concealed carry. There have been several self-defense shootings by lawful carriers, and they (the lawful shooters) seem to be harassed much less than they are in other places.
What Chicago does have is a demoralized police force that is understaffed by at least 20%, a severe gang problem, and the most criminal-pandering, cop-hating, shockingly corrupt coalition of community "leaders" and politicians outside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
