I just have to keep saying it and hope that one day it will finally sink in to the national mindset;

More Laws Equal More Billable Hours for The Lawyers

Who Just ‘Coincidentally – ‘ Make The Laws!

Laws2Doesn’t matter if they’re good laws or bad laws.  Needed or not needed.   One page or a thousand pages.  A business contract or The Constitution itself.   Local. State Federal or International.  They are the gift that keeps on giving for Americas’ ruling class; lawyers.

And the Gun Laws are no different.  The proliferation of gun laws in America has resulted in two things.  One; more gun killings and of course two; more billable hours for the lawyers.

One of the best illustrations of this reality is the example of the City of Chicago which is the most heavily gun-regulated area in the country and at the same time reigns as the leader in the national murder rate. 

… more Chicago residents — 228 — have been killed so far this year in the city than the number of U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan – 144 — over the same period.

The war zone-like statistics are not new. As WBEZ reports, while some 2,000 U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan since 2001, more than 5,000 people have been killed by gun fire in Chicago during that time, based on Department of Defense and FBI data.

Chicago’s murder rate is also currently quadruple that of New York and double Los Angeles’ rate. …

The city’s homicide rate is up more than 50 percent over last year.  read more

Chicago Murder Rate Higher Than Non-Gun Controlled Capone Era

AlCapone

3 Feb 2013

While the left proclaims that American gun violence requires immediate gun control action, Chicago – the most heavily gun-regulated area in the country wherein you can purchase AK47 rifles without proper documents – now has a higher murder rate than it did during the halcyon days of Al Capone. According to Chuck Goudie of ABC Chicago, “Forty-two people were killed in Chicago last month, the most in January since 2002, and far worse than the city’s most notorious crime era at the end of the Roaring Twenties. January 1929, there were 26 killings.”

When Al Capone ruled the streets of Chicago, there were few gun laws on the books. As Goudie points out, “The first national firearms act wasn’t signed until 1934.”
