Railroad Tries To Stop Gun Thefts By Chicago Gangs

posted on May 12, 2017

It’s a funny thing about criminals—if they’ll break one law, they’ll likely break any law. Those who are doing the killing in Chicago—and who are leading the city to record violence levels—are not law-abiding citizens who have obtained their guns legally. Despite what the city’s Democratic leaders would have you believe, they are criminals doing what criminals do best: breaking laws.

After it was reported that Chicago gangs were targeting gun shipments at a south side Chicago railyard—some 150 guns were stolen between 2014 and 2016—U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., sent Virginia-based Norfolk Southern a letter asking them to increase security. Last week, the railroad reported that a handful of new safety measures were now in effect and should help reduce theft. 

Now if only Sen. Durbin was as interested in Chicago’s lack of prosecution or jail time for offenders.
