Chicago, Illinois has been the unfortunate site of a failed political experiment that has left the city and its residents on edge.

In this experiment, Chicagoans made it illegal to own a handgun within the city limits.  That meant, by default, that only those who were already engaged in unlawful activities had guns.  For thirty some-odd years this was the reality of the Chicago situation.  Gangs flourished, as did the illegal gun and drug trade.

Now, even after rescinding the poorly planned ban, the Windy City is still reaping the ill-effects, with 40 citizens having been shot over the weekend…and that was before the mimosas were all gone.

At least 40 people where shot, four fatally, Sunday before noon in gun-controlled Chicago.
