Yet more actual evidence:

On Monday, the Supreme Court upheld a challenge to Chicago's 28-year-old handgun ban, which ultimately signals the end of the ban on handguns in Chicago and Oak Park.
So, you've got a ban that's been in place for 28 years. Plenty of time to get entrenched, both practically and mentally. So, folks, how has that worked out in a real-world case study actually in the nation under debate?
Chicago Police Department statistics, we are told, reveal that the City's handgun murder rate has actually increased since the ban was enacted and that Chicago residents now face one of the highest murder rates in the country and rates of other violent crimes that exceed the average in comparable cities.
Now, being an unenlightened knuckle dragger, I wouldn't want to confuse the issue with objective facts based on relevant examples, so perhaps some of you smart folks can explain this data to me.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
