Secondly Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws of any city in the country. How is that working out?
They're dealing with RED STATE laws from the GOP that flood the city with guns. Here's some data for you, since you're dedicated to repeating right-wing memes without thinking:
"The police department recovers 10,000 firearms every year in the city of Chicago, yet there are zero ... gun stores within city limits," Smith said. "So, none of those guns originate here."
"It is estimated that 60% of the guns recovered in Chicago were originally purchased out of state, with Indiana, Mississippi and Wisconsin among the top suppliers."
The cities with the highest gun murder rates per capita are:
1. St. Louis, Missouri
2. Baltimore, Maryland
3. Birmingham, Alabama
4. Detroit, Michigan
5. Dayton, Ohio
6. Baton Rouge, Louisiana
7. New Orleans, Louisiana
8. Kansas City, Missouri
9. Memphis, Tennessee
10. Cleveland, Ohio
28. Chicago, Illinois
Indianapolis, Indiana is 23rd, and I mention them because gun laws in Indiana allow Indianapolis to have a higher rate of murder by gun than Chicago, where a lot of Indiana's guns end up. Indiana is the highest contributor. Mississippi and Wisconsin also manage to have cities in the top 50.
