More gun control

More gun control

Obama, although he wants it, is smart enough not to come out for outright gun control.

Instead, “we will look at many different options, including gun control.” Well, just how well does gun control work?

In Chicago, Obama’s hometown, we find one of the most restrictive gun control set of laws in the country. Yet last weekend, just one or two days after the Connecticut school shootings, Chicago recorded nine murders.

Sure seems like tougher gun control laws is the answer.
