Chicago gun control doesn't work

There is hardly any better example than that of the city of Chicago that liberal gun control policies simply do not work. Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun control in all of the nation, but sadly, week after week, multiple people are shot and several die.

Unfortunately, only the bad guys in Chicago end up getting guns because they thrive on breaking the law, when your average citizen obeys the law. And don't you think criminals know this? However, we hear from progressive politicians that Chicago is not the problem, it is outlying cities that supply the guns to Chicago gangs and other nefarious criminals.

Yes, bad guys will always have guns, just like druggies always have drugs despite trillions being spent over the years on the "War on Drugs." And how much as that helped?

The problem is not guns and liberals like to suggest, it is the mindset that shows not a smidgen of respect for the life of another human being.

At this point, law abiding citizens just need to defend themselves.

More than 40 people were shot, five of them fatally, in a spate of violence across Chicago between Friday and Sunday night.

The latest homicide took place around 12:25 a.m. Sunday in the 3500 block of West Fullerton Avenue in the Logan Square neighborhood. A 21-year-old woman was in the back seat of a vehicle driving eastbound on Fullerton when a group of men standing on the sidewalk shouted gang slogans and opened fire on the car.

The woman was transported to Norwegian American Hospital with wounds to the left side of her head and was later pronounced dead, according to authorities.

On Saturday, a 17-year-old boy was fatally shot when a man dressed in all black approached him in the 5500 block of West North Avenue and fired at him from behind. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.
