Chicago's murder rate is out of control despite all of the city and state regulations to reduce access to guns.
"It is very important to us to tax guns because we know that guns are the sources of the incredible violence we have in our neighborhoods," Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle told a news conference.
I always thought the sources of incredible violence were incredibly violent people. Its a tough sell, especially in Chicago. This is going to fall on deaf ears, but if I were a violent person I would A) Like a guarantee from the City of Chicago that the person I'm about to rob is unarmed. and B) Not care what gun laws were on the books anyway.
How many murders will there be before the city actually does something other than hold "Anti-violence rallies"?
