Chicago Gun Control Reaps Weekend Harvest

This weekends shootings brings the total number of people shot in Chicago to 2,600 this year alone. To give you an idea of what those numbers mean, the total for last year was 2,988.

According to the Chicago Tribune, one portion of the weekend, “from Saturday afternoon to early Sunday,” was especially violent. During that time alone, “five people were killed and at least 19 others were wounded.”

Among the killed was 19-year-old Arshell Dennis, the son of a Chicago police officer.Dennis and a 20-year-old man were shot on Chicago’s Far South Side during the early morning hours Sunday.

Seven people were shot, three fatally, on Friday night alone.

Those are just statistics right? Let's keep gambling on the misled idea that banning guns keeps innocent Americans safe. Clearly criminals are abiding by the law. The only problem is that these aren't just statistics. They're human lives. And by making it difficult for law-abiding citizens to get the guns they need for self-defense, that body count is only going to rise.

The blood is on their hands.
