The Gun Control Monkeys -- ATF & The Joyce Foundation -- Joined at the hip.
Roseanna Ander, executive director of the University of Chicago's Crime Lab, backed the Police Department while noting that "it would be great if we had more resources and more could be done."
She said she understood the argument set forth in the opinion that people in high-crime areas might believe they'd be safer with a gun in their home. But research shows that gun availability leads to more bloodshed, not less, she said.
"I understand the concern about public safety, but that is not going to get you a safer public,'' Ander said. "That is a solution that doesn't fit the problem. It's putting gasoline on a fire. What we need is more water."

In the Chicago Police Department speaker's attempt to downplay the level of street gang organized crime firearms related violence, a fact emerged: Chicago's firearms murder rate is the same as it was 1960.
Chicago's 50+ years of gun control efforts has NOT reduced firearms related murders.
YEEESH! LA didn’t even MAKE the list! Wow...
I doubt that facts will get in the way of the desire for gun control in Chicago.
I am always interested in such events though. Especially if there is any national news that comes from it.
“Botswanna Anders”...I laugh...yeah...I laugh.
Why, its the blood of poor innocent gang bangers. Every one of them is just misguided and hung out with the wrong crowd. Every one of them was trying to turn their life around. < /sarcasm>
Just ask their mothers.
