That is from 2002 and it is an opinion piece not statistical data. How about some numbers, ideally more current.
Chicago has such restrictive gun laws because of rampant crime. You may think there would be less homicides without them, I happen to think there would be more. Unfortunately, I am unaware of a study corroborating either, but the Chicago legislature certainly had some data and decided accordingly.
Moron, I live near Chitcago, and I know that the crime is the result of gang activity using stolen guns. The law abiding society has no means to protect themselves, and the gangs know it. Crime has increased. BTW, there are tons of articles showing increased crime in the UK.
