The city of Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation and yet they have done little to curb the growing gun violence taking place in the Windy City. What’s happening in Chicago proves that the issue isn’t gun control but our decaying culture.

The number of shootings and murders January 1 through January 22, 2017, are higher than they were for the same time period in 2016.

According to the Chicago Tribune, “at least 228 people were shot in Chicago so far this year.” That is an increase of 16 victims over the number shot by this same time in 2016. And there have been “at least 42 homicides,” marking a “23.5 percent from the 34 homicides from the same period in 2016.”

Think about it this way–January 2016 was the bloodiest start for a year in at least 16 years, yet the carnage of the first three weeks of 2017 surpassed it. And this is bad omen, especially when you consider the fact that bloody January 2016 set the tone for the rest of last year, with the result that gun-controlled Chicago ended 2016 with nearly 4,400 shootings and almost 800 murders.
