 article about why you shouldnt have the right to bear arms
According to Chicago Police Department the city of Chicago experienced the most violent Fourth of July weekend with at least fifteen people killed and 86 people wounded.

"The mood here is frustration," said chief police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

The Department is now conducting a comprehensive review. In 2013 there were 74 people shot, 12 of them killed.

Most of the shootings seem to have started with a a random argument which ended up with someone pulling out a gun. Or drunk people getting into arguments and eventually pulling out a gun.

They do say that guns don't kill people, people do. But what if the people wouldn't have guns on them all the time? Most of those shooting during the long weekend wouldn't have happened.
