52 were shot and 10 killed this Memorial Day weekend across Chicago…
Why does this matter? Because Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country.
Knowing this information how can liberals possibly think that stricter gun control is the answer to violent crime in America?
Could psychological trauma, mental illness, and the disintegration of the family be the root causes of our mass shooting epidemic here in America?
I think so, guns don’t kill people, people kill people, and if they didn’t have a gun they would just move on to the next best thing, like a pipe bomb, a knife, or fertilizer-based explosives…
After all, Cain killed Abel with a rock.
Here’s what critics of gun control policies are saying in the wake of Chicago’s widespread Memorial Day shootings:
