Cold-blooded killers are running wild in sanctuary cities.
Despite draconian gun restrictions in America’s biggest cities, the U.S. rate for gun deaths has increased for the second straight year, following 15 years of no real change, a government report shows.
There’s been a recent upswing in gun-related homicides some experts said.
Overall, the firearm death rate rose to 12 deaths per 100,000 people last year, up from 11 in 2015, according to the report released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Before that, the rate had hovered just above 10 — a level it had fallen to in the late 1990s.
Sharp homicide increases in Chicago and other places that have been large enough to elevate the national statistics. According to the FBI’s raw numbers, the tally of U.S. homicides involving guns rose to nearly 11,000 last year, from about 9,600 the year before.
