More guns doesn’t lead to more crime, despite the claims of anti-gun politicians and gun control groups. Chicago still has plenty of work to do to lower its crime rate, but the city can see a continued reduction in shootings and homicides, as long as the focus is on the drug and gang-related violence, and not the city’s law-abiding gun owners.
It’s also important to note that the homicide totals are dropping even as the number of Chicago residents legally carrying firearms for self-defense has grown to around 40,000. According to gun control activists like Shannon Watts, the increasing number of legally carried guns on Chicago streets should be creating more homicides. Instead, we’re seeing the number of murders decline as more citizens legally arm themselves for protection.
