Donald Trump used his Twitter bully pulpit on Monday to blast Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for allowing his city's murder and firearms shooting rates to spiral out of control.
'Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016,' Trump tweeted.
'If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!'
2016 was one of the most violent years in Chicago history with the most homicides in two decades – more than New York and Los Angeles combined.
The nation's third largest city also saw 1,100 more shooting incidents last year than it did in 2015, according to data released Sunday by the Chicago Police Department.

Seems to me, if criminals aren't afraid of the consequences of their actions, then they would see no reason to change.

Hm, this can't be true because we were told by all the conservatives on this site that overturning their gun ban would end the violence.
