Chicago Murder Rate Higher Than Non-Gun Controlled Capone Era

While the left proclaims that American gun violence requires immediate gun control action, Chicago – the most heavily gun-regulated area in the country – now has a higher murder rate than it did during the halcyon days of Al Capone. According to Chuck Goudie of ABC Chicago, “Forty-two people were killed in Chicago last month, the most in January since 2002, and far worse than the city’s most notorious crime era at the end of the Roaring Twenties. January 1929, there were 26 killings.”

When Al Capone ruled the streets of Chicago, there were few gun laws on the books. As Goudie points out, “The first national firearms act wasn’t signed until 1934.”
