Hey....dipstick......now you have to explain this.....why do Chicago cops recover more guns than L.A. and New York? Do the criminals in L.A. and New York, not know how to use Google Maps to get to states that have lots of guns?
In 2016, when adjusted for population, Chicago recovered 6 times as many guns per capita as New York and 1.5 times as many guns per capita as Los Angeles. n
And tell us....oh genius.......do Indiana gun stores do Federally Mandated Background checks on every gun sale?
How is it that New York criminals can't get to Vermont...or Pennsylvania.....?
You just swallow whatever the anti-gun fanatics throw at you.....
Oh hey! Good work at getting all the talking point in te same sentence.Now, your attempt at deflection from the umpteenth white guy conducting a mass shooting with a semi-auto rifle that caused "unspeakable" injuries and killed and injured a lot of people more quickly than any handgun could...is noted.
They work. But they aren't the whole solution.You cannot demonstrate this to be true.
I don't have to prove anything. Other people have already done the work.You cannot demonstrate this to be true.
Nothing in those studies prove your claim that "background checks are effective" to be true.I just gave you two studies.
And thus, you move the goalposts.Background checks work (when combined with other measures).
They work. But they aren't the whole solution.
Recent studies have found that background checks can help curb gun violence. In recent shootings, though, evidence is tougher to see.www.npr.org

Here's something more recent. Again, it's not a standalone fix.
