What isn't working in Chicago...

Fighting for Liberty and Arms and the Law note that the Dem platform is FOS when it comes to banning guns (let's just be realistic here). The classic line:

"What works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne,"

What's "working" in Chicago allows for a murder rate 5x higher than Cheyenne and, for that matter, the rest of the state of Illinois. 50% gang related. 90% by prior criminals against 70% prior criminals.

The only contention I have is that the current Chicago murder rate (as of 7/08) is closer to 17.5 now than the older 16.4 number from '06. It's most likely even higher as Chicago, like most other craphole cities, have seen a reducing trend in population.
