Illegal guns are used in nearly all shootings
What articles and editorials about gun violence in Buffalo and Chicago always fail to mention is that almost every gun used in almost every shooting is an illegal gun. It was obtained illegally, carried illegally and, of course, used illegally. Laws such as New York’s (un)SAFE Act don’t impact these shootings at all. They only make law-abiding gun ownership more difficult and make it safer for criminals and crime.
