As I wrote a while back, gun violence is a Democratic problem because it’s not a gun problem, it’s a social problem. That’s something liberals in theory agree with, but then refuse to think about.
Chicago is a case in point. Its gun violence is really gang violence. Its gang violence is the symptom of a broken society.
In June there were 45 homicides in Chicago. So far in July there have been 43 homicides. Chicago weekend shootings left six dead and 17 wounded.
In the last thirty days, Chicago has had only four days that were homicide-free.
If this goes on, then Chicago will be America. In many ways that’s already the case.
