Pop quiz hot shot: Do gun control laws really work?
SPOILER ALERT: No, they don’t, as Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and his guest a retired Chicago police sergeant recently pointed out.
To prove that gun control laws are ineffective at preventing violent crime, Carlson examined the Windy City where gun-related violence is spiking out of control — over 923 shootings in 2015 — despite the fact that Chi-Town has some of the toughest restrictions on the Second Amendment.
As the two men discussed, Chicago’s problem with violence has nothing to do with inanimate objects and everything to do with gangs. After all there is a reason Chicago earned the dubious nickname “Chiraq.”
Sadly, city leaders seem to ignore the obvious problem with gangs and drugs and instead focus on rolling back the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizen. The result is an unarmed and defenseless civilian populace in the midst of war zone.
