As President Barack Obama and his ilk continue to promote gun control laws rather than promote measures that would go after people who are illegally possessing guns at this time, the president’s hometown of Chicago where gun laws are literally the strictest in the entire nation had seven murdered on Saturday according to the Chicago Tribune newspaper.

Obama's Speech on Gun Control and Gun Violence in America
Specifically, there were four shootings in which two of them were double homicides and there was one stabbing which totaled the 7 dead in the city which was named the murder capital of the United States last year. Chicago had over 500 murders committed by gun fire last year – 2012 – in spite of the strict gun laws in Chicago under the leadership of Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Illinois Democratic Governor Pat Quinn.
Making the story more incredible, according to the Chicago Tribune report on Sunday, there have been no persons arrested regarding any of the shootings.
Chicago and its gun control laws continue to be a source of debate, especially for those who purport that gun laws are not the answers to the nation's violence committed by guns.
