If Gun Control Works, Chicago Ought To Be Safe, Says Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich

Daniel Halper at the Weekly Standard offers a video of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich being interviewed on CBS about gun control.

Gingrich revealed that he's been urging House Republicans to hold hearings about gun control in Chicago, President Obama's hometown and "the murder capital of the United States."

"Well, I think it's amazing that we're having all this discussion about gun control: The president's hometown, Chicago, is the murder capital of the United States. Over 500 people were killed there last year. Vice President Biden doesn't seem to want to go there. I'm trying to get the House Republicans to hold hearings there. It's illegal to have all the guns that are killing people in Chicago. If gun control works, Chicago ought to be safe," said Gingrich.
