Chicago shooting deaths top 2015 total despite crackdown on illegal guns
The Wall Street Journal


CHICAGO –  The number of shooting deaths here has surpassed the total for last year with four months still to go, in a bloody 2016 in which Chicago has outpaced most major U.S. cities in homicides.

Police are stepping up efforts to confiscate illegal firearms from the streets, and the state recently passed a law toughening penalties for gun trafficking, but the moves so far seem to be having little effect, with this August shaping up to be the most violent in almost two decades.

By Wednesday morning, 425 people had been fatally shot so far this year in Chicago—accounting for 91% of the total murders in the city. In all of 2015, 424 people were killed by gun shots, with a total of 493 homicides. By the end of the year, gun-related deaths are set to reach highs not seen since the early 2000s.

It seems to me that cities with the strictest gun laws have the most difficulty with crime.
