THE CT LAW WON'T LOWER CRIME ONE BIT.
IT MIGHT ACTUALLY INCREASE CRIME BY DISARMING DECENT LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS.
MAYOR COREY BOOKER - OF NEWARK; (D-N.J.):
To me, the data should drive our decision making. So I know, I’m not afraid of people having guns who are law abiding citizens. In the analysis of gun murders and shootings in my city, I could only find one in the entire time I’ve been mayor – and unfortunately there have been hundreds and hundreds – where a person who was involved in a shooting where they had their gun legally, where they legally acquired their gun. The guns that are causing carnage in our cities, my city and our country, every single year are acquired illegally.THIS IS WHY TOUGHER GUN CONTROL LAWS DO NOT REDUCE GUN CRIME OR CRIME.
IF THEY DID, THEN CHICAGO WOULD BE GUN CRIME FREE AND DC'S GUN CRIME WOULD HAVE WORSENED.
