Chicago shows gun control does not work

Recently, a handgun owner legally licensed to carry the weapon was jailed in Chicago because she had the gun on her. Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the nation. In spite of that, more than 500 people were murdered in the city. The Chicago ordinances contain all of the provisions currently being considered by the Colorado Legislature. They will not work.

It is a myth that the provisions being considered will result in fewer gun crimes. Law enforcement is required to reduce all kinds of crime. Those seeking gun control have forgotten that the Constitution states that no law will be passed that infringes on the right to bear arms. Call your legislators and tell them no to gun control.
