There is little doubt in the minds of affected Chicagoans that their experimental handgun ban failed miserably during its 32 year reign.

As if to completely vindicate the old adage about “only outlaws having guns” when guns are outlawed, Chicago was quickly inundated by a lopsided war between the haves and have-nots.  Those with guns purchased out of state, or illegally on Chicago’s thriving black market, were quickly ascending to the top of the proverbial perp pile, wreaking havoc on otherwise law-abiding citizens.

The criminal element of Chicago was quickly separating itself from the remaining population much like the drug cartels of Mexico, but instead of mutilating bodies and leaving them hanging from overpasses, merely owning and using a handgun was enough to reign terror on the Windy City.

Now, even years after the 2014 reversal of the ban, the unfortunate reality of Chicago’s illicit guns continues, with brutally vicious gun fights still erupting throughout the city.  This weekend was no exception.

“At least two people were killed and 17 wounded in shootings in Chicago during the last weekend of January, as the city continues to see less gun violence this year than the previous two years at this time, according to data kept by the Tribune.

“Two young boys were among the injured, according to police. A 12-year-old shot himself in the leg in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side late Friday, and a 13-year-old boy was shot in the arm in the South Side’s Back of the Yards neighborhood Saturday afternoon.

“So far this year, at least 187 people have been shot in Chicago, according to Tribune data. There have been at least 34 homicides. That’s about two-thirds of the levels seen in 2016 and 2017 for both categories, though 2018 is ahead of the pace from 2015 and other recent years.”

We must remember that “this year” is only 4 weeks old.

Chicago will be suffering from the effects of their idiotic attempt at gun control for ages to come, as they attempt in vein to flush out three decades of organized violence and thirty years’ worth of illegal hardware on the streets.
