Gun Control Debate 2013: Obama Distracts With More Theatrics, Ignores the Real Problems
By John Giokaris

Chicago ranked last in the nation in terms of federal gun law enforcement in 2012, according to a new report from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. Federal gun crimes include illegal possession of a firearm in a school zone, illegal sale of a firearm to a juvenile, felon, or drug addict, and illegal transport of a firearm across state lines. In fact, the cities that have the nation’s most restrictive gun laws as well as the most active mayors in championing gun control — New York City’s Michael Bloomberg, Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel, and Los Angeles’ Antonio Villaraigosa — all ranked last in prosecutions of federal weapons crimes per capita last year.
