In 2003, Chicago has the most number of murders of any city in the nation. How can this be, when Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation? Alan Gottlieb of he Second Amendment Foundation has some observations:

Gottlieb called it “remarkable” that Chicago, New York and Los Angeles have some of the nation’s strictest gun laws, but even so, they still lead the nation when it comes to the number of homicides.

Gottlieb, in a press release, noted that Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has made his “anti-gun philosophy” a cornerstone of his administration, to the detriment of the city.

He compared the situation in Chicago to that in Detroit, where the once-high murder rate has dropped to its lowest level in years.

“Two years ago,” Gottlieb noted, “Michigan reformed its concealed carry law, and today, thousands of law-abiding citizens in Michigan are legally armed. Gosh, do you suppose there is any correlation?”

Ya’ think?
