Is Chicago’s Out-Of-Control Murder Rate Connected to Its Sanctuary City Policies?

There are no gun shops in Chicago, so they say, but murders are on pace to hit 730 for 2013. Guns are usually the weapons that the killers choose to use.Two teenage boys were murdered over the weekend, and guns were the weapons used by the killers. One victim, 14-year-old Rey Dorantes, was reportedly shot while sitting on the front porch of his home. Fifteen-year-old Victor Vega was reportedly walking with another male when they were approached by an armed man who opened fire, killing Vega. In separate incidents, four other people were wounded via gunfire, and all but one of them were under the age of 17. There have been 21 homicides in Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago since the start of 2013. At least 15 of the victims were shot to death, and more than half were under the age of
30. It’s not known yet whether either boy’s murder was gang related, but Chicago police believe that the majority of murders committed within the city are the result of gang wars and gang violence.

According to a story published in March 2012, Chicago’s gang-related statistics are alarming:

Chicago is home to the largest gang population in the country, Fox Chicago reported in January. The Chicago Crime Commission reports 73 active gangs with 68,000 to 150,000 gang members in the city.

Gangsters Smuggling Guns from Suburbs into Chicago
February 18, 2013 - Vice President Joe Biden’s Chief of Staff Bruce Reed, in advocating gun control said, “If you’re a gang member in Chicago you can go to a gun store in the suburbs and have a friend or a girlfriend buy a gun from a gun store."
Quote:
Reed was discussing gun laws during an online White House event titled “Open for Questions: The State of the Union and Reducing Gun Violence”. A participant commented, “If gun control worked, Chicago would not have had 500 murders last year. Time to target gangs - not guns.”

In his response Reed said, “With respect to Chicago, you know Chicago’s an example--Chicago the city has strong laws but it’s surrounded by suburbs and a state that have much looser laws. So, if you’re a gang member in Chicago you can go to a gun store in the suburbs--have a friend or a girlfriend buy a gun from a gun store.”

“Maybe that person is legally able to buy a gun,” Reed continued, “They can turn around and sell it to you and then you go back into the city of Chicago and wreak all kinds of mayhem with that gun. So guns are the kind of problem that if the national system has a bunch of holes--if the national background check system is just swiss cheese than criminals will find their way into it.”

Chicago’s strict gun control laws have prevented gun dealers from opening up any shops within city limits. A recent study on guns seized by Chicago police shows that guns used in crimes come in from other areas. Over 29% were bought in Cook County Ill., the region that includes Chicago. The remaining guns came from other areas of Illinois and surrounding states.
