ALL of the facts are on the side of people who believe in the right to bear arms. Cities with the tightest gun restrictions, such as your beloved Chicago, have the highest rates of violent crime. Areas in which rates of gun ownership by decent people (not gang bangers, etc.) have the lowest rates of both violent crimes and property crimes. Of course, as Sowell avers, the gun grabbers never let the facts get in the way of their pre-conceived notions.
