What's wrong with that city? They've got what must be some fairly sophisticated equipment in that "gunshot detection system," yet the violence keeps rolling along.
Where do you think the guns come from? I realize we don't know, but I'm just asking based on common sense, where do you think they come from?
My guess is they come from out of state, where, number 1, they're easier to buy, and number 2, they're easier to steal because more homes contain weapons than in NJ. We saw it recently in Queens NY. What this means, very simply is the strict gun control laws in New Jersey work extremely well, because they force criminals and young gang members to get there guns from outside, and it means that if the other states with lax gun laws would get in line, there would be a major lessening in gun violence.
What's your opinion? Does that make sense to you?
