Gun Violence in Chicago .. et al
“[I] have never understood why, if all the guns in Chicago come from Indiana, then why doesn’t Indiana have a similar murder rate?”
We all know why Chicago guns come from "out of state". Because Indianans are Democrats, so they make every legality as confusing as possible. (It's cumbersome, but it supports a lot of professional politicians who would otherwise be unable to hold down a job.)
If Chicago laws are too strict to let potential gun owners buy guns locally, they just go to another state (Indiana is very conveniently located) to buy guns.
And Indiana's laws are much more lenient (say ... more adherent to the Second Amendment) than are those in Illinois).
We might ask why Illinoisans even bothers to circumvent the 2nd Amendment ... but then we would have to question why people who wish to exercise their Constitutional rights have to leave their state to be Americans ..... and again, we wonder why they vote Democratic.
Again, we wonder why people choose to undermine their own personal self-interest; but that's what makes us a two-party nation, so go figure!
