    Which helps explain my own attitude in regards to the easy access to guns; we have a gun problem too, just not quite as bad as Chicago. My point was that, easy as it is in PA, even we have problems with the cross-border transfer of guns and the attempt to regulate even something as serious as concealed carry permits. I'm not saying we're a bastion of strict gun control (far from it), just that these problems are even more widespread than what residents of Chicago or NYC might think.

      But PA is where people go to buy guns and not be bothered. Far easier than neighboring states. With Philly, people drive out to Cabela's on 78/61. People from Jersey, as well.

      It certainly is an issue but I think it's one that will be around for a long time. If residents of other areas are staunchly pro-gun then I think we need to focus on things that we can change.

      That's not to say I'm against legislation that would make it harder for someone to become a defacto gun runner.
