    Chicago. IL. Since finally alowing law abiding citizens to own guns, what has happened to the murder rate.

    There is blood running in the streets right?

    Ha!

    "THE ANTIGUN PEOPLE ALWAYS PREDICT A BLOODBATH, BUT IT NEVER HAPPENS: After passing concealed-carry law, Chicago has lowest murder rate since 1958 ..."

    "... in the first quarter of 2014. There were 6 fewer murders than the same timeframe in 2013 — a 9 percent drop — and 55 fewer murders than 2012, police said.

    Further, there were reportedly 90 fewer shootings and 119 fewer shooting victims compared to last year. There have also been 222 fewer shootings and 292 fewer shooting victims compared to the first quarter in 2012.

    All crime is down 25 percent from 2013 and police say they have confiscated over 1,300 illegal guns in the last three months."

    Well the first permits were not issued until March 1st, so they have data from a little over 30 days to reflect this already. the gov can't put data together that fast.

    Sorry John but that isn't quite right. Go back and look at recent history regarding concealed carry laws. Gun crime begins dropping as soon as the law is determined regardless of when it goes into effect. Basically criminals get put on notice and immediately start looking for safer careers. Therefore any data from the moment of the vote is still relevant.
