Look. The criminals have no problem getting guns. And they don’t do it legally. There is a huge flow of illegal guns into ghetto areas, and the politicians don’t give a dam. All they care about is taking guns from honest, law-abiding people.
They deliberately leave guns in the hands of violent criminals.
New York City also has a handgun ban, but Chicago has a higher murder rate. Chicago residents probably have lower morals and less respect for life.
