Brian Howey's column stated Chicago's strict gun laws don't do anything because of all the gun violence. Then he stated that most of the guns used in crime come from Indiana.

But just recently the Chicago media stated that most guns used in crime are from legal gun owners in Chicago. The media probably said this to stifle gun ownership, conceal carry permits and gun shops in the city. Now who is lying about the stats?

You will find that most guns brought into the Chicago area come from down south where you can get more than one at a time, sometimes with a minimal waiting period.
