AUGUST: MOST VIOLENT MONTH IN CHICAGO IN 20 YEARS: Gun Control Not Working

 

The windy city hasn’t seen a deadlier month since October of 1997, when there were 79 homicides. For the whole year, the count was 761, according to department numbers.

Chicago has recorded 487 homicides and more than 2,800 people shot so far this year, compared to 491 homicides and 2,988 people shot all of last year, according to Tribune data.

The gun violence in Chicago has been concentrated on the South and West sides that have lost population over the years as other areas have grown.

ERICH PRATT, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America is available for Talk Show interviews on this topic.

Erich stresses that strict gun controls have also turned entire U.S. cities in quasi-gun free zones, where innocent law abiding people are at the mercy of criminals who still have guns and always will. He said:

“In places where the government makes it illegal or very difficult to own a firearm for protection. Those are typically the most dangerous places–like Baltimore, like Washington DC, like Chicago. That is where people typically are waiting for police; that’s almost their only option and sadly, a lot of people pay the ultimate price. Chicago having its most dangerous month in 20 years is another example of the lie behind gun free zones”.
