Not true. Criminals can only function where they are permitted to function.
Come June 9th, Illinois is likely to go for gun liberty by default, and the big drop in crime is projected so much that Rahm Emanuel has already tried to claim credit for it.
The Chicago situation is exacerbated right now because the two major crime gangs that used to dominate the city have both been broken up. Fragmented, some of the tiny gangs control as little as a single block of territory.
And if three or four honest citizens on that block get guns, it will neutralize the ability of the local gang to maintain control.
The big question is how rapidly law and order will be restored. It may literally be in as little as a few weeks to a few months.
And yes, a lot of criminals will die before this happens, before they get the message.
It will be a sight to see, and gun liberty advocates will have a full scale, real world model to show what happens when gun liberty exists.
No doubt, armed law abiding citizens will drive crime down if Chicago actually gets ccw, but I’m not sure I beleive that will happen to any great extent. BTW, Detroit has ccw and many armed citizens that kill criminals regularily, yet they still have very high crime rates.
dems will love it secretly.
law abiding people will take out the criminals.
dems then get a cleaner city with less crime, take the credit, and play the race card.
