Strict Gun Control in Chicago is NOT working

Gun bans are put in place by people with power who don't seem to understand that criminals will carry guns anyway, despite what the law says. Meanwhile, it is the law abiding citizens who obey the law, that are left defenseless. The entire point of banning guns in Chicago was to try and make it more safe. Ultimately, the opposite is actually what occurs with these bans. Criminals know they will be met with no type of effective resistance when they chose a victim. One could argue that this actually emboldens those with evil intent to follow through with violence against the innocent.

Gun bans in places such as Chicago have proved useless. Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Even since the 2008 McDonald vs. Chicago decision, citizens have to jump through what seems to be an infinite number of hoops to purchase a gun legally to have in their home for self defense. Your standard citizen is still not allowed to carry a gun for self defense out in public in Chicago. Year after year, homicide numbers and violence is increasing. 2012 saw just over 500 homicides in this city, making it one of the most dangerous places to live and visit.

As shown in the story below, a victim can comply 100% and still be shot by these monsters roaming the streets of Chicago. I have heard people say "Just give them whatever they want and they won't hurt you." Really?
