Report: L.A., Chicago, NYC Rank Last in Federal Gun Crime Enforcement

According to a new report, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City have prosecuted the least number of  gun crimes in the country. Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse reports that the "districts of Eastern New York, Central California, and Northern Illinois ranked 88th, 89th and 90th, respectively, out of 90 districts, in prosecutions of federal weapons crimes per capita last year..."

Federal gun crimes include illegal possession of a firearm in a school zone, illegal sale of a firearm to a juvenile, felon, or drug addict, and illegal transport of a firearm across state lines. In Chicago, the majority of gun charges last year were for firearms violations.

Nanny Bloomberg (NYC), Antonio Villaraigosa (LA), and Rahm Emanual (Chicago) are all high profile participants in the gun control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns. 

(Is anyone actually in favor of illegal guns?!?!?) 

So, let me get this straight: the cities with notoriously high gun crime/gun violence and with mayors loudly squawking for more gun control FAIL TO PROSECUTE the criminals who violate the laws they are agitating for?  

Clean up your own backyard, fellas.
