It’s no longer open season on citizens in Chicago
If you follow concealed carry news, then you know that Illinois has never allowed the personal carrying of any firearm for any purpose – which, of course, included Chicago. McDonald VS. Chicago was a monumental Supreme Court decision which upheld the 2nd amendment – the right to carry a firearm outside of the home was finally legalized throughout the state.
Way to go, America. Sorry it took so long.
After concealed carry was legalized, Chicago logged the lowest murder crime rate since 1958
(I’m sincerely curious – comment below and let me know if you heard this statistic on the news or not. I want to know if the main stream media actually covers news like this that matters.)
In the first quarter after concealed carry was finally legalized, the City of Chicago logged it’s lowest murder rate since 1958.
Can you believe that?
Imagine what the anti-gun people in America would say to that? Would they shrug it off as coincidence, or would they give the 2nd amendment the credit it deserves? (By the way, did you know that up to 40% of Americans say they’re not proud of America? Read about the “Still Proud” Movement that we started here.)
“There were 90 fewer shootings and 119 fewer shooting victims”
Not only did the murder rate actually drop, but the hard numbers were released. There were 90 fewer shootings and 119 fewer shooting victims.
