Gingrich Calls Chicago "Murder Capital of U.S." | NBC Chicago
Chicago's reputation precedes itself.
Former House speaker Newt Gingrich on Tuesday pointed to murder rates in President Barack Obama's hometown as the gun control debate pushes on across the country.
Gingrich called Chicago "the murder capital of the United States" in an interview with CBS and said he wants House Republicans to hold hearings in the city.
"Over 500 people were killed there last year," Gingrich said in the interview. "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."
The city marked 516 homicides in 2012, a dubious distinction that hasn't occurred since 2008, when it ended the year with 512 murders.
