By Staff

Recent data from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse revealed a couple of interesting things. One — that the district within which Chicago resides ranks last in terms of prosecutions of federal weapons crimes per capita. And, two — that “nationally federal gun crime prosecutions hit a decade low in 2011 under President Obama, down 40 percent from their peak under President George W. Bush in 2004.”
