"Likely because it is adjacent to a place that does not have restrictive gun control laws. See Mexico, Republic of."
So using your logic, because the gun laws of Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missori, and Indiana are not as restrictive as the gun laws of Chicago, then that is the reason that the death by gun rate in Chicago is so high.
Further if these other jurisdictions would make their gun laws as restrictive as the Chicago gun laws, then the death by gun rate in Chigago would go down.
Not at all Froggie. If they are going to work, we need national restrictions. Do you know why Virginia is largest supplier of guns to criminals on the East Coast? Because it has a loophole that allows criminals to buy guns at gun shows. Criminals drive from Florida and New York to buy guns in Virginia. Probably Chicago too.
Let me try your logic: Send more AR-15s to Chicago and the death by gun rate will go down. Is that what you think?
"Not at all Froggie. If they are going to work, we need national restrictions."
OK, OK, I think I am almost there.
So by your logic if we get "national restrictions" that are as restrictive as the city of Chicago, then the death by gun rate in Chicago would go down.
Is that it?
As far as your statement:
"Let me try your logic: Send more AR-15s to Chicago and the death by gun rate will go down. Is that what you think?"
No, that is not my logic, but it is the logic of the current Attorney General in the "fast and furious" scheme used by the justice department that resulted in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Further, I think you would be hard pressed to find within last year's 500 death by gun cases in the city of Chicago where they found an AR-15 was used.
