Jacksonville FL: We are #1 !!!
Duval County likely No. 1 in murders again | Jacksonville.com
I am actually in favor in finding out how criminals get to guns. Having some hard numbers would maybe lead to more sensible controls. The above quote appears to assume that careless legal gun owners are a big source. I have seen other studies (I think ATF) that conclude it is either straw purchases or thefts from gun stores with thefts from private persons in a far third of fourth spot.
Rutherford said the department is also involved in a federal study to trace the sources of stolen guns and will promote an awareness campaign to diminish the potential for guns to be stolen. Gun owners will be urged not to leave weapons in cars or in other places where they can be easily stolen, he said.
