I mean, you look at the city with the strongest gun laws in our nation, is Chicago, and Chicago is a disaster. It’s a total disaster. Just remember, if this man didn’t have a gun or rifle, you’d be talking about a much worse situation in the great state of Texas.Donald Trump, President of the United States of America
Joint Press Conference With ROK President Moon on
- Chicago Has the Strictest Gun Control Laws in the US
This hasn’t been true since the Supreme Court decided McDonald v. Chicago in 2010.
Donald Trump has made this claim at least 3 times, from 2014-07-09 thru 2017-11-07.
Chicago used to have what some considered to be the toughest gun laws in the country. But not anymore.
The statement is years out of date. After a Supreme Court ruling, Chicago residents can own handguns and carry them unseen on the streets. A national gun control group puts seven states above Illinois in regulating gun ownership.
