Chicago has had the worst July in ten years, with sixty-five people being shot and killed. This may seem shocking with all the gun rules and regulations that Chicago has right? For the first seven months of this year, there have been around 400 homicides, last year the total number of homicides for the year was 490. Chicago is getting worse, not better, and gun control isn’t helping.
July 2016 marked the deadliest July in ten years for Chicago. Chicago has some of the strongest gun control regulations of any state, and yet sixty-five individuals were shot and killed last month. If that rate continues for Chicago that will be 780 people by the end of the year. 780 people killed by gun related violence alone. When will the Liberal community realize that gun control does not fix the problem…it makes it worse.
