The liberal media continues to ignore the truth that so called “harsh gun laws” in various states don’t stop crime violence in the slightest. As always the anti-gun crowd refuses to accept that criminals don’t obey gun control laws. They would rather disarm law abiding citizens who accept and obey the law. Last week in Chicago there were 9 gun-related homicides with 86 shot and wounded. Ironically, Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the nation.
A recent study by the University of Chicago proved this point after conducting a study to figure out how criminals in Chicago were acquiring their firearms. No surprise, the administers of the study quickly found out what everybody already knew. Criminals don’t buy their firearms from licensed dealers, private sellers, or even the Internet. Criminals buy guns off the street and through underground channels.
The study also found that inmates who are awaiting gun charges in jail have had a series of gun related charges. DUH! You can’t honestly tell me that you believed they were going through the proper channels to acquire a firearm?
Harold Pollack, University of Chicago’s Crime Lab co-director, also said criminals, “were less concerned about getting caught by the cops than being put in the position of not having a gun to defend themselves and then getting shot.” So basically you’re saying the city is so dangerous that criminals don’t worry about the risk of incarceration as long as they have personal protection?!
The picture above is all the guns confiscated in Chicago last summer. Yes, in two months these are all the illegal firearms that were brought to the station from police raids. This just proves the point that having universal background checks are nothing more than a step towards a federal registry of all gun owners – which we could all chalk up to the government having the means to take guns away from law abiding Americans.
The anti-gun liberals can continue to push their “let’s all get backgrounds checks to stop the bad guys and get guns off the street” bullshit, but come on, statistics do not lie. As this study showed, that argument is flawed and there is no evidence to support these outlandish claims.
