The city of Chicago offers reason for concern, according to’s “Big Government” page.

According to the Chicago Tribune, “The city recorded its 300th homicide this weekend and went on to record six others over a 60-hour period that saw 56 people shot, 13 fatally, from Friday afternoon through early Monday morning.” From Friday into Saturday alone, five people were killed and another nine were wounded.

This brings the number shot in Chicago to “about 1,800 people” year-t0-date, the Tribune reports.

Breitbart News previously reported that May 2016 was the deadliest May that Chicago has witnessed since 1995. The Tribune reported “nearly 400” people shot and 66 killed in May alone.

Chicago has an “assault weapons” ban, a “violence tax,” and stringent limits on the number of gun stores allow, as well as limits on the locations of those stores. But these controls, and others, have correlated with an empowered criminal element.

So much for the potential benefits of more gun control.
