If strict gun-control laws are supposed to reduce gun-violence, then why are there so many people being shot in Chicago? Illinois, Cook County and Chicago combine for very strict gun control laws, designed to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but evidently, these laws don’t work the way Obama says they will.

Following the nearly 4,400 shootings that marred Chicago’s 2016, hopes were high that 2017 would be different. But as of January 4, a total of 54 people had already been shot in Chicago during the new year.
