That Was Bad Timing
- Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy joined forces with Sen. Dick Durbin on Friday to say he’s “positive” implementing gun trafficking legislation and an assault weapons ban in Chicago will get the city’s murder rate down.
Even though there was only a single murder committed last year with a so-called "assault weapon." But that wasn't the funny part:
- McCarthy said he believes new gun legislation will decrease the city’s murder rate, which he said was down 28 percent in January, and down 16 percent in the last few months of 2012.
"...down 28% in January..."
That was before 7 died in shootings across the city.
Well played karma.....well played.
