Since Illinois started granting concealed carry permits this year, the number of robberies that have led to arrests in Chicago has declined 20 percent from last year, according to police department statistics. Reports of burglary and motor vehicle theft are down 20 percent and 26 percent, respectively. In the first quarter, the city’s homicide rate was at a 56-year low.
What? We were promised massacres and mass shootouts in the street!
The Chicago Police Department has credited better police work as a
reason for the lower crime rates this year. Police Superintendent Garry
F. McCarthy noted the confiscation of more than 1,300 illegal guns in
the first three months of the year, better police training and
“intelligent policing strategies.”
The Chicago Police Department didn’t respond to a request for comment from The Washington Times.
Maybe they didn't want to answer the question "If this is why, why hasn't it stopped all the weekend shootings by the gangs?"
