Quote of the Day: Warming to Disarmament Edition

Christie Hefner (courtesy forbes.com)

“Yes, last year we hit a record number of murders from guns [in Chicago]. And this year we are already outpacing last year’s numbers. Now, there are contributing factors that are not under anybody’s control and may seem odd, but it is factually true. One of them is actually the weather. There is a dramatic increase in gun violence when it is warmer. And we are having this climate change effect that is driving that.” – Christie Hefner in Center for American Progress’ Christie Hefner: Climate change a factor in Chicago’s murder rate [via dailycaller.com]
