View Full Version : NOLA Murder Rate Remains Steady Despite New Gun Control Laws

Though new gun control measures were designed to curtail murder and gun violence in New Orleans, the murder rate has remained almost unchanged from last year, before the measures were put into place.

Around the same time last year in New Orleans, more than 130 people had been killed in the city. Fast-forward to today, there are now 134 murders in the Crescent City, according to the Times-Picayune.

What is different between this year’s crime rate versus the last is new gun control measures, which widely expand the amount of gun-free zones, regulations, and penalties for gun-owners.

The gun control measures are not backed by the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) Fraternal Order of Police, with spokesman Donovan Livaccari saying he is not surprised the regulations failed to depress the murder rate.

“I am not surprised that these new gun control measures have had little impact on murders in New Orleans,” Livaccari said to Breitbart Texas. Law abiding citizens are generally not committing murders.”

You mean it didn't work this time like it didn't every other time? Why I am just baffled...
