Gun-Control Saves—Or Kills?

Some say Chicago has the most rigid and draconian gun control laws in the country.  Common sense tells us that less guns should translate into fewer shooting.

However—first, commonsense ain’t so common—and, second, Breitbart recently reported that, over our recent Memorial Day weekend, in heavily gun-controlled Chicago,

At least 53 people were shot and wounded and four were killed.

Given that only 4 people died out of the 57 who were shot, I guess the good news is that Chicago shooters aren’t very good shots.  Apparently, only 7% of those who are shot, actually die. I’m sure that the folks down here on Texas could teach those Chicagoans a thing or two about firearms accuracy.

Federal Judge Overturns some of Obama’s Gun Control Laws


A Federal Judge in the Marianas Islands has overturned Obama gun control laws.  I don’t know how far this Judge’s ruling extends.  It almost certainly does not apply to the entire U.S..  But it does set a precedent that may not control but could persuade.  It almost certainly guarantees that the issue will soon go the Supreme Court of the United States.   Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen.

While we wait for further developments, this ruling is (temporarily?) cause for celebration.

Judge Napolitano on Nevada gun control


As usual, Judge Napolitano makes another strong argument that touches on both the legality and politics of an important issue.  This time, it’s gun control.

I wonder what Napolitano’s relationship is to Donald Trump.  They might despise each other, but they seem to have a lot in common.  Both are brash and outspoken.  I wonder if Trump could appoint Napolitano to the Supreme Court.  I wonder if Napolitiano would take the job seeing as it would probably cause him to take a considerable cut in pay from his current job as TV analyst.

Given the need for judges to at least “appear” impartial, I’m not even sure that Napolitano could become a Supreme Court justice.  Napolitano has publicly expressed so many passionate opinions that, as a Supreme Court justice, he mgiht be repeatedly asked to recuse himself for partiality and bias

Still, the idea of “Trump–Napolitano–Supreme Court” has a ring to it.

Gun Control Nuts

 “There has never been an occasion where a people gave up their weapons in the interest of peace that didn’t end in their massacre.” Louis L’Amour

 

ZeroHedge.com reported in “Meanwhile In Chicago, 120 People Shot In First 10 Days Of 2016” that,

 

“Even as Obama takes his anti-gun crusade to new highs [by] dispensing executive orders, the president conveniently continues to ignore the state of affairs in his native Chicago—a city in which guns are banned—yet where the shooting epidemic has never been worse.

“According to the Chicago Tribune, the total number of shootings in the windy city has risen to 120 in just over a week into the new year . . . at least 19 people have been killed and at least 101 more have been wounded. This is three times higher than compared to the same period one year ago.

“Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi released a statement saying, ‘Every year Chicago Police recover more illegal guns than officers in any other city, and as more and more illegal guns continue to find their way into our neighborhoods. So it is clear we need stronger state and federal gun laws.‘”

 

That’s not “clear” at all.

What’s clear is that the Chicago Police Department is lying or stupid.  As you’ll read, there’s good evidence indicating that Chicago gun deaths aren’t due to Chicago’s gun control laws being too weak, but because their gun control laws are too strong.

Gun control kills.

The cops should know it.  Insofar as the Chicago Police Department advocates more gun control, it’s helping to cause, rather than prevent, more deaths.
