I asked "So did firearm laws cause a decrease in non-firearm crimes?" and "Why does Chicago boast a 5x higher homicide rate than the rest of the state?"
Well the first question was completely ignored. His response to the second was:
Chicago has been a particularly violent city. But the guns used in crime there have been traced back to sources outside of Chicago and into neighboring states. Weaker regulation in those areas is the real downfall of Chicago, making ineffective the strict gun laws there (not as strict now, of course). It'll be interesting to follow the statistics following the recent legal changes there.Yep, it's all the gun's fault. Apparently they have some sort of mind control that particularly effects Chicago residents in comparison to the rest of the residents of the state where firearms are legal and common.
So I asked again. Why is there such a disparity? What makes Chicago so violent they need to smuggle in guns? Let's see if we get an answer or it it's avoided again.
