  • University of Chicago Study Obliterates Gun Control Dogma with Revealing Study

    Second Amendment advocates have been saying it for years: Gun control is really people control.

    It does nothing to stop criminals from getting guns.

    Well, the University of Chicago set out to determine just where criminals do get their guns.

    Chicago is known as one of the toughest gun control cities in America, while also suffering a staggering amount of gun violence.

    This troubling fact left the researchers with plenty of subjects to interview in Chicago jails who are incarcerated on gun-elated charges.

    Interestingly, not one of these criminals got their guns legally.

    From American Patriot Daily:

    A recent study by the University of Chicago proved this point after conducting a study to figure out how criminals in Chicago were acquiring their firearms.

    Not surprisingly, administers of the study quickly learned these criminals do not acquire their guns from licensed dealers, private sellers, or even the Internet.

    The study looked at inmates in Chicago’s Cook County Jail who face gun charges or who have a history of firearm related convictions.

    They learned zero criminals have used gun shows or the Internet to purchase their weapons.

    The reason why?  The method is too easily traceable by law enforcement.

    Instead, the preferred method for criminals was to purchase firearms available on the streets, where they are harder for law enforcement to track.

    Harold Pollack, University of Chicago’s Crime Lab co-director, also said criminals, “were less concerned about getting caught by the cops than being put in the position of not having a gun to defend themselves and then getting shot.”

    Basically, the University of Chicago admits that the city is so dangerous, criminals would rather risk going to jail than not being able to effectively defend themselves.

    The study showed that handguns were number one:

    “The vast majority of the inmates used handguns to commit their crimes or protect themselves, very few cited using “military-style assault weapons.” And they said their habit was to get rid of a gun after one year because of the “legal liability” of being caught with a gun that could be linked to crimes they or others committed.

    As for specifics regarding sources for purchasing guns, some of the inmates indicated that gangs have individuals with a Firearm Owners Identification Card who buy guns then sell them to gang members. Others indicated using “corrupt cops” who seize guns then “put them back on the street.”

    Of course, almost no mainstream media outlet will run with this story, because it doesn’t fit the narrative.

    Gun control only controls law abiding citizens.
