Letter: Why do some believe tighter gun laws will make us safer?


As reported in U.S. News and World Report on March 28, the federal districts that contain Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City ranked last in federal gun law enforcement is 2012. This information is documented in a report from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks federal data. The districts of Eastern New York, California and Northern Illinois ranked 88th, 89th and 99th, respectively, out of 90 districts, in prosecutions of federal weapons crimes per capita last year. The Chicago area ranked dead last in federal prosecutions of gun crimes even though itís the murder capital of the United States.
