Newt Gingrich: “If Gun Control Works, Chicago Ought to Be Safe” (Video)

Newt Gingrich has the best line of the day.
While being prodded by CBS This Morning on gun control, Newt dropped this bomb,
“If gun control works, Chicago ought to be safe.”

** Zing** The morning show hosts immediately ended the conversation.

Weekly Standard has the transcript:

“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.”
