1,516 mass shootings in 1,735 days: America's gun crisis in one chart

quote [ Data compiled by the Gun Violence Archive. ]

But hey, Chicago has the strictest gun laws in the country and look at their murder rate! You can't legislate evil!

Chicago guns aren't bought in Chicago. Are you crazy it is to hard for criminals to buy guns there.

According to the FBI, roughly 60% of guns used in crimes in Illinois were from out of state.

So yes you can do some good with laws...this proves it. Can you totally eradicate it...NO, but saying you can't make it better is a bare face lie.

If you want to do something about the gun violence in Chicago or in any big city for that matter you can lower the numbers of guns on the street quickly and easily...Make trafficking in weapons carry an equal weight in crime for whatever those guns are used for.

You sell a gun illegally and it is used to kill somebody you too could be facing life without parole an armed robbery 15 to life...an assault 1 to 3. My guess you won't be able to find an illegal gun and if you do you won't be able to afford it.

Now this law would not effect any legal gun sale or use...just the ones sold without a FIOD card and background check. But I bet we don't get any support from activist for that one any more than they will support just keeping track of how many people get killed by them. All record keeping is done privately now.

"Bump Fire" Stocks I still want somebody to defend these pieces of crap. Nobody hunts or defends their home with these things. They are offensive weapons designed to get around the automatic weapon law.
