  •  Be nice to be able to track these weapons. (9+ / 0-)

    I'd bet the trail is littered with good guys. The good guys that manufactured the guns, the good guy who sold them to the good guy who sold them to the bad guy who used them for their intended purpose - killing people. There are probably three or four good guys with guns involved in every gun death.

    Who cares what banks may fail in Yonkers. Long as you've got a kiss that conquers.

      When they are able to recover a gun from a crime it is often tracked. There are specific gun stores in Indiana and one in Mississippi (for some reason) who do a great business supplying Chicago gangs. Through legal purchases by straw purchasers.

      Also, many of them track back to gun shows, never background checked. I read that there is a specific gun show in Crown Point Indiana that is known for keeping Chicago gangs well stocked with guns.

      I know there is no recourse against the gun shows, but I'm not sure if they ever prosecute the straw purchasers.
