Meaning that if everyone has gun, no criminal will dare to use it for fear of retaliation

At least 15 individuals were shot and wounded, and another six shot and killed, during violence in gun-controlled Chicago over the weekend.

The shootings without fatalities began around 9 pm Friday and include an incident at 3:30 a.m. Sunday, wherein a woman was shot in the leg “while traveling on the Kennedy Expressway on the North Side.” The woman was in the “outbound lanes of Interstate 90/94 near Fullerton Avenue when someone in a black BMW sedan began shooting into the passenger side of her vehicle.”

CBS Chicago reports that the first fatal shooting of the weekend occurred in the Fernwood neighborhood at 8:36 a.m. Saturday. Police said “a male walked up to a 17-year-old boy in the 10500 block of South Lafayette Avenue and opened fire.” The 17-year-old was struck multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene.

That actually is possible. We need empirical test results that support this hypothesis,

More guns mean more gun deaths. Period.

The research on this is overwhelmingly clear. No matter how you look at the data, more guns mean more gun deaths.

This is apparent when you look at state-by-state data within the United States, as this chart from Mother Jones demonstrates:

Gun ownership tightly correlates with gun violence.
