He says lax laws in surrounding areas cause the bloody, murderous slaughter ongoing in Chicago.
For example, guns are legal in the Chicago suburb of Aurora, the second largest city in Illinois. The gun crime rate there is a minuscule fraction of Chicago. Why should that be? Guns are legal in in Aurora and there is little crime. Guns are illegal in Chicago and it is a continuous bloodbath.
Or maybe by “surrounding areas” he means Iowa. In Iowa, the homicide rate is less than in the UK and on par with Scandinavia. Yet gun laws are very lax in Iowa. The Brady Campaign gives Iowa an “F” for its gun control effort. Yet there is virtually no gun crime in Iowa.
One wonders, why do lax gun laws have zero effect on crime in Iowa but cause a bloodbath two hundred miles away in Chicago.
It’s a mystery, huh?Share
