Chicago City Council rescinds Chicago’s gun registry in place since 1968. No, they didn’t do this joyously. They did to comply with the new Illinois state laws. Which they themselves were done in order to comply with the Supreme Court’s decision that Chicago was indeed infringing upon the civil rights of Americans.
Also interesting to note “Chicago’s homicide rate has declined 22 percent in the past year, according to the Police Department. There have been 295 homicides in Chicago this year, compared with 377 during the same period last year.”
Seriously, so since Chicago has been forced to open the door to civilian gun ownership, homicides had dropped over 20%. But how do the city politicians refer to this progress?
““There’s no scenario where this makes the jobs of police easier.” Really, cause I would think 20% less homicide police reports being filed would be making their officers day jobs a LOT easier.
