Ed Schultz wants so badly to make the case that strict gun laws actually reduce gun violence that he said on his show last Friday that New York City has less gun violence than Chicago because Bloomberg has implemented the strictest gun laws in America. In Chicago, he said, gun laws don’t even exist. Seriously.
Apparently Ed hasn’t done his research because Chicago has among the strictest gun laws in America. In fact the State of Illinois was just given 180 days to come up with new gun laws because the old ones were so strict they violated the 2nd amendment.
What a dope!
ED SCHULTZ: The gun laws and the gun violence in Chicago is a helluva lot different than it is in New York City. There’s two different worlds when it comes to gun violence, it’s not even close. You know, New York City is not, you know, an all-safe zone or what not, I’m not trying to make that case. But a city that has got strict, the strictest gun laws in America put forth by Mayor Bloomberg, versus the gun laws that apparently don’t even exist in Chicago, you’ve got two totally different numbers when it comes to lives lost.
