Just in case you needed further evidence of the true goal of the gun controllers, reaction to the McDonald case is providing it.
While police confiscation rates over the past decade were still extremely high, research shows that guns are indeed harder to buy and more expensive in Chicago than in other cities.
To keep the price of guns high, the city (or state) could also consider imposing an excise tax on gun transactions along the lines of a cigarette or soda tax. A government’s most efficient means to discourage a given behavior, after all, is to make it prohibitive to purchase.
As usual, they measure success by how difficult it is to obtain guns.
Notably, there is no attempt at all to measure the success of gun control in terms of crime rates or statistics.
Because it’s not about crime.
It’s not really even about guns.
It’s about control.
