Worth eight minutes of your time. Here’s the basic question … there are guns all over the United States, in every city and every suburb. Why do certain areas within cities like Chicago have extreme issues with gun violence, when other communities within the United States do not have as big of an issue, or virtually no issue at all?
As I have said before, you can not compare cities using crime statistics since there are too many variables involved, but when looking at cities like Washington, D.C. and Chicago, Ill., it is fair to as why “illegal” guns are “flowing” into certain communities in those cities. Why there is such a (mostly) gang-associated culture of violence?
That is a hard problem to solve, too hard of a problem for liberals, many Democrats and the anti-gun crowd … so they are taking the easy “see, we did something” route instead of dealing with the actual problem. Not one piece of legislation being proposed or passed in state houses or in Congress will solve the issue.
