The best place to study gun issues is Chicago
By Dr. Harold Pease

According to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearing house, “out of 90 federal judicial districts in the United States, Chicago in recent years has ranked near the bottom in terms of gun prosecutions. In 2014, it ranked 82nd out of 90 districts.” But leniency everywhere is typical of the Obama administration. In 2011, “federal gun prosecutions dropped by roughly 40 percent.” Clearly, Chicago is not enforcing its gun laws already in existence. “Only about 1 percent of the guns seized by Chicago police led to federal prosecutions.” Moreover, those prosecuted rarely get more than one year of a possible three-year sentence. Without a will to enforce existing law there exists no valid logic in creating more.
