How is Gun Control working out?: Chicago crosses 2,000 shooting victims this year

As I’ve said many times before, Chicago has the toughest gun control laws in the country.
  That is not stopping the city from setting records for people getting shot with illegal guns which these laws do nothing to stop.

CNN reports a war among criminals rages on in America's third-largest city, with innocent residents caught in the crossfire.
Over the holiday weekend, Chicago passed an ominous threshold: So far in 2016, 2,000 people have been victims of gun violence.
In all of last year, 2,988 people were victims of gun violence, according to records kept by The Chicago Tribune

Over the Fourth of July weekend, four people were killed and 46 were injured in 42 shootings and a stabbing, according to a release from Chicago police. Last July 4 weekend, seven were killed and 40 wounded.
