So I am a big fan of a lot of conservative talk show hosts, and listen to them on my weekly commute. As a millennial, I really learn a lot. I have always considered the ones I listen to, to be trusted sources.
However, I need some help from many of you who are much wiser and more knowledgeable than me in this subject. After the Vegas shooting, and before it, some conservatives will say, “Chicago has SOME of the toughest gun laws in the USA and yet there are still so many murders.”
I also though this was a fact (the strict gun law part), and one I repeated (which is my ignorance showing maybe). I know the murder rate is still extremely highly despite gun laws, because criminals and gang violence will get firearms no matter what.
But I have been doing research on it myself to stay armed with the true facts, and I am at a loss as to how I can now back up that claim when Illinois laws don’t seem to be that much stricter than other states as of 2017?
HELP!! I never ask for anything, but I am not getting anymore facts on my own!
