When reading stories like these, it seems obvious that the so-called strict gun laws in New Jersey are not working. At least that's what the pro-gun voices say. I don't think they really believe that. I think they realize that if it weren't for the laws already in place in the Garden State, there would have been ten or twenty shootings in Newark instead of just five. And I think they realize if all the other states had the same laws as New Jersey, those five shootings might have been only three.
In other words that old argument that places like Chicago and D.C. prove gun control doesn't work is bogus.
