Reader: Gun control hasn't led to fewer murder victims in Chicago....

Thumbnail image for gun pointing at camera cropped.jpg
Yesterday, we wrote about a Weld County Commissioners resolution defending the Second Amendment -- and, by implication, registering a protest against a possible assault-weapons ban and implementation of universal background checks. In reply, one reader brings up a city where tough gun laws have done little to end the carnage.

CloudGang writes:

Whereas I think you're all some real punk thieving scam artists operating a racket. Look at these fascist fools.

Meanwhile, in Chicago, a gun ban only makes that city have the highest murder percentage.

In a true republic, I would get to make the choice myself.

@DonkeyHotay Chicago is a City, Retard. And the murder rate is higher per capita in Chicago than ALL the States you listed.

@Monkey ... proof they need MORE gun control.

Note that the states with the highest Murder and Murder By Firearm rates are almost entire Right-Wing, Pro-Gun, Red Repuglykkkan NRA bastions with little if any gun control.

@Monkey ... when you comprehend the difference between Cause, Correlation and Coincidence ... and adjust for ALL variables, get back to us.

@DonkeyHotay  The proof is that CITIES with the most gun-control have higher murder rates with and without guns than the National average. Chicago has some of strictest laws in the Nation, much stricter than Illinois itself yet murder rates in Chicago is extremely high compared to Illinois, the entire U.S. and States with little restrictions. Instituting MORE gun-control than Chicago and expecting different results is defined as insane, and the supreme court calls it un-constitutional.
