Why I Oppose Gun Control
Gun laws do not prevent crime. That has been proven time and time again. Senator Bob Cruz stated, “ If you look at the jurisdictions with the strictest gun control laws, almost without
exception, they have the highest crime rates and the highest murder rates”.
An example of this would be the crime rates in Chicago and Washington, DC. With strict gun control laws the incidence of shootings and murders by shootings have skyrocketed in these cities. In Chicago alone, the rate increased by 15% over a two year period. This is indicative of the lack of impact that gun control laws really have in this country when fighting crime.
Did Prohibition stop the sale of alcohol, did drug laws stop the sale of drugs in our communities? No, they didn’t! The people who profited from Prohibition were the gangster’s like Al Capone. If gun control laws were in place, we would then have to worry about the next modern day Al Capone, supplying guns to criminals.
