Why go "city vs city"?

Compare the US to Canada and the UK.

Last time I checked the US had a lower major crime rate per capita.

There is some relevance to country to country, but there are simply too many other variables in each different culture to accurately argue the point of gun control doesn't work.

IMHO City to City & State to State works best

osamaobama is not the key to gun-control, but rather the House and Senete. If pro-gunners can rid the House and Senete of rinos and anties and gain control then osamaobama would be nothing more then a bobble head.

i'd like to see the percentage of gun crime per "strict pro-gun control" city/state (new york, california, illinois, etc) versus the rest of the United States, and

i'd like to see the percentage of overall crime per city/state versus percentage of gun crime per said city/state.

this is spot on!!! obabwah-wah is a political figure head, puppet that has his strings pulled by congress. congress forms, compiles, passes and ultimately makes the laws it wants..................and they hide, piggyback, and add pork to bills that mean NOTHING to the bills that are being passed, in hopes noone will be the wiser until it is too late.

You can torpedo that argument when you show that the overwhelming majority of gun owners who acquired their guns legally DO NOT commit crimes with them.
So, it'll go more in depth than this, but a general over view, according to the ATF and the Bureau of Justice Statistics:

93% of firearms that are used in crimes are obtained illegally.

39.2% of crime guns are purchased on the street
39.6% of crime guns are purchased from family/friends

0.7% of crime guns are purchased at a gun show
