Gun Control Fails Again in Chicago

August 6, 2018

Mexican drug gangs were busy murdering people in Chicago. 63 people were shot and 10 were killed over the weekend. Many of the injured were gang members. Many were not. As predicted, Chicago politicians blamed guns. The truth is that failed political policies destroyed Chicago and are killing its citizens. The truth is that gangs could kill hundreds of people every night and Chicago voters would elect the same broken politicians back into office.

How many dead people will it take for Chicago voters to throw out the machine?

Talk is cheap, both from Chicago politicians and from Chicago voters. Citizens said they would turn in the criminals who are murdering their kids. Politicians said they would get tough on crime. Neither happened.

You get more of what you reward and less of what you punish. Under the consent decree imposed on Chicago police, it is easier to record crimes than to interview criminals. When you make it harder to stop criminals you get more crime.

When you vote in corrupt politicians then you get more corruption. Rather than admit their failures, Chicago politicians blame guns because that excuse sells with the voters. In fact, Chicago politicians already told us that their gun control laws should make us one of the safest cities in the US. The opposite happened. Criminals ignore background checks and waiting periods and gun-free zones.

Shame on us for believing them.
