To the Editor:
While my heart aches over the tragic slaughter of innocent lives, banning assault weapons will not alone prevent future attacks. When all the guns are outlawed, only the outlaws will have guns. Chicago’s city government enacted one of the toughest gun-control laws in the country.
According to a Washington Post article dated Dec. 21, Chicago police recorded 2,364 shooting incidents along with 487 homicides, 87 percent of which were gun-related, since Jan. 1, 2012. As of Dec. 28, the homicide total in Chicago reached 500. Would it be wise to enact such “gun-control” laws nationwide? No.
