Obviously not enough guns yet. More Guns = Less Crime!

Majority of Guns Used in Chicago Crimes Come From Outside Illinois: Report

Nearly 60 percent of guns recovered in Chicago come from out-of-state
dealers, with more than 20 percent traced back to Indiana, according to a
newly released report on the city’s violence.
The 2017 Gun Trace Report released Sunday also showed that nearly a
quarter of the guns recovered in Chicago were sold by just ten federally
licensed firearms dealers (seven in Illinois and three in northwest
Indiana).

The report is part of a collaboration between the Chicago Police
Department, Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office and the University of Chicago
Crime Lab. The report analyzed data from crimes between 2013 and 2016 to
better understand where guns in Chicago come from, and to help officials
develop impactful solutions to address the root causes of the city's
violence.
Chicago police have recovered nearly 7,000 firearms annually since 2013
that were used or suspected of being used in a crime – far outnumbering
other major metropolitan areas, according to the report. When adjusted for
population, authorities in Chicago recovered six times as many guns per
capita as their counterparts in New York City and 1.5 times as many as in
Los Angeles.

The top two sources of firearms recovered by police – Chuck’s Gun Shop in
Riverdale and Midwest Sporting Goods in Lyons – have been the source of a
disproportionate number of weapons for the better part of a decade,
according to the report, providing a combined 11.2 percent of all crime
guns recovered in Chicago.
When reached, a spokesperson for Chuck's Gun Shop declined to comment. In
a statement, Midwest Sporting Goods said the data in the study "seems
exaggerated" and that the shop "seeks to work with the authors... to seek
real solutions."

Midwest Sporting Goods also said that in response to the 2014 Gun Trace
Report, it implemented provisions outlined in the "model gun dealer
ordinance" and has complied with the Village of Lyons ordinance requiring
them to maintain a "do not sell" list of customers whose weapons have been
traced to a crime. It was not immediately clear what others provisions
laid out in the model gun dealer ordinance, which calls for background
checks, inventory record keeping and audit requirements to aid law
enforcement, and video camera recording of gun sales and inventory areas
to deter straw purchasers and thefts, that Midwest complies with.

"From 2015 to 2016, Midwest Sporting Goods’ shortest time to crime gun
recoveries – those of less than one year from point of sale to recovery in
a crime – dropped by almost 10 percentage points," the report noted,
adding that though more time and analysis is needed, "early results are
promising."
The report also underscored the impact policies in other states have on
guns trafficked into Chicago.
Sixty percent of firearms recovered by police originated from a dealer
outside Illinois, research showed, with one out of every five guns coming
from Indiana.

To that end, the report identified four major policy proposals to be
enacted at the state level, as well as several federal solutions.
First, the report urges Illinois lawmakers to pass the statewide Gun
Dealer Licensing bill, legislation that mirrors provisions in the model
gun dealer ordinance. The legislation will is slated to be considered
during veto session next week.


The report's second area of focus is comprehensive background checks on
private firearm sales.
Both federal and state law require background checks at licensed dealers,
and Illinois also mandates that all sellers, regardless of setting, check
a person's Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) card prior to completing
the transaction.

Wherever the guns are coming from....obviously those states to not
have daily and weekly murders? You don't see weekly headlines
of black teens shooting babies.
