On Tuesday’s Piers Morgan Live, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour claimed that states with strict gun laws have “lower gun crime” and argued for more gun control. By citing “states” she ignored cities like Chicago, which has strict gun laws along with alarming homicide numbers.
“The fact of the matter is that in states inside the United States where there are tougher gun laws, there is lower gun crime,” Amanpour stated. She continued, referencing other countries: “in these other countries which have had their own massacres which then took these measures, there has been very little, if not any, gun crime.” [Video below the break.
