Has anyone ever seen an honest study that identifies where the guns are coming from that are used in Chicago and Detroit when perps shoot other perps? Are the gang bangers getting them from legal gun owners, or what?

I'm sure they are mostly getting black market/stolen guns for their misdeeds.

No, gang bangers tend to have the real McCoy as in fully automatic weapons. They are not getting these legally. There is a weapon pipeline just like there is a drug pipeline into countries. There is no paperwork and cold cash is needed. You have to know where to go and who to talk to.

A lot of the weapons are brand new and not stolen.
